Pointless Arrow

Night 17: Right Turn at Albuquerque

As we rolled into Albuquerque station, I fished for a public wireless internet signal. There may have been one from the Alvarado Transportation Center (New Mexico Rail Runner commuter trains and buses) adjacent to the Amtrak/Greyhound station, but it wasn't strong enough to hold up, and I wasn't going to go hauling my computer around during our 45-minutes servicing and inspection stop.

Returning to our room around 9 PM, Lisa and I took stock of the schedule for the next day. With breakfast seating running from only 5 to 5:30 due to the anticipated early arrival at Los Angeles, we decided to skip breakfast and sleep an extra hour. Nevertheless, it was important to get to bed early, so we did so as best we could.
