Kickin it on Route 66

We're still in the Blue Swallow. We walked a ways down Route 66 and discovered a drive through donut store. We walked up and got a few. The owner said he saw us down at the Blue Swallow. The tow truck driver went by and honked at us. Bill brought Kurt over some coffee and was at the door the second Kurt got back from NAPA to see if we were staying another night.

We discovered that the truck blew a spark plug right out of the hole. They will put in a heli coil and glue it then insert the new plug. It needs about 3 hours to dry. At least we aren't going to be trapped here until Monday or later. There is very little to do in Tucumari (and very few places to eat) and none of them are within walking distance.

We hope to head out around 2 or 3 pm.
