I left Austin around 5:15am and I headed west.
This was a long day of driving, but these days feel really manageable to me, and I am happy for that. I have a lot on my mind and then nothing on my mind for long stretches. I drove through western Texas, and then a little of New Mexico and my final stop for the day was Tucson, Arizona. I had never been in these parts of America. There is not much there. Long roads, plateaus, dry vegetation, mountains, and more long roads. Not many people travel this part besides just to move from on side of the country to the other, so the driving was pretty mindless. But here I am.
