We stayed for the breakfast at Dream Catcher RV Park yesterday and had our farewell with the Heberleins. Getting on the road at 9 a.m. got us to Socorro about lunch time, where we stopped at Roadrunner Travel Center. It was a convenience store with Crane Café in the rear. Oh, how is small, unassuming café could put out some large flavored food.
After eating mostly Cajun food for the last three months, it was time for New Mexico green chili. Look at Jim’s choice….the Roadrunner Special….burger smothered in green chili, topped with french fries, smothered in green chili and topped with cheese….no calories here, right?
No, he didn’t eat it all, but he sure put a big dent in it.
If you are traveling on I-25 in New Mexico, Crane Café is on the north end of Socorro, on the west side. It’s a must stop.
We were going to meet my former boss, Heinz, and his wife, Angela, at Cochiti Lake, so we were texting each other back and forth. They were coming from Alamosa, Colorado, but started around 11 a.m. so it was kind of a race to see who got there first. We won, but only by 10 minutes since we stopped for lunch. It was good seeing Heinz and Angela again. It was a long 281 miles today, but an easy drive.
The electric sites were all taken so we parked in a “primitive” site for the night….didn’t even unhook…and will watch the locals leave this morning and snag a couple of stops for the rest of the week.
Remember, you are loved.
