My Little House on the highway
Hello, I’m Elina. Welcome to follow my journey with my husband Heikki across North America. In this blog, you can get a behind-the-scenes look what life is like on the road
Saturday 4.10.21 Desert
At night we arrived in a village called Vaughn in New Mexico. We stayed at the truck stop for the night and there was still room for us too. The evening walk was missed due to late arrival time. We were ready to sleep! Today we left later after a mandatory ten hour rest break. There was quiet traffic in the desert. Traffic picked up when we reached I-40. The sun was shining from the clear sky. Heikki was able to get blue tooth working in truck radio and now we were able to listen to Finnish music via his phone. It was nice to sing along with old Finnish pop songs. The words were fading at times. But that didn’t slow down my singing! There were new (?) pop songs that I didn’t recognize.
It was good to continue the journey after the meal and the desert landscapes were beautiful in front of us.
We washed our truck in Farmington
Our journey continued through the desert and there were houses here and there. No need to listen to the noise of neighbors. Next came the state of Colorado. The landscapes remained similar, although there was more cultivated land.
We stayed the night at Green River.
