    Thank you both! Every word, every penny, everything everyone has done for me has continuously made this trip possible; although I knew the community is supportive and s tight-knit family I知 always continuously surprise at the sheer support I receive when I attempt wild recoveries such as this!

    IMG_2674.jpg I知 in kingman working on the truck, does anyone know of someone here with a short loading dock OR a set of ramps that can support a 8000 pound Gama goat to load into the m989a1 from the rear? I知 using 2x6 wood in between the middle section stacked to create solid space for the wheels to roll across but need ramps for 5 minutes to load the goat!

    The super 8 in Tucumcari has good truck parking and reasonable rates.

    Del's diner in Tucumcari has a decent ribeye.

    Driving at night is a bad idea. All the more so if you're tired, in an unfamiliar truck, and feeling pressed for time.

    A few days ago I made a good decision. I stopped 75 miles short of destination and got a motel room because it was dark and I was tired. 50 miles into the drive the next day the wrecker blew a tire. Not that big of an deal when well rested on a nice sunny day. Had I pushed on the night prior it would have been highly unpleasant to deal with tired in the middle of the night.
