Dogs got us up at 5:30, ah well. Tom rearranged some things in the car, we jettisoned one dog bed, and got on the road at 7:15.
Tom decided he was driving today, maybe I scared him yesterday. The time does pass faster when you drive. Plus Tom is not a great navigator.
Not much to say, roads are mostly terribly, with small patches of good, and the tolls keep getting higher and higher.
So hazy, pollution, smoke, dust???
Coming down after Orizaba it cleared and was beautiful. Navigating around Puebla was a mess, my gosh the construction.
We've done better today, walked and watered the dogs more often, got ourselves something to eat, and water.
the Arco Norte is not quite the 'dream road' some others think it is. It is cement, with lots of dips and bumps. But it is high speed.
Made great time and got in to Queretero about 6:30, fabulous, early evening, we all need time out of the car. After 3 hours, and checking 22 hotels/motels, and being rejected by all we decided it was time to move on. We were all quite fried.
Didn't get too far before it started to rain, the traffic was intense And quite frankly I was afraid. So we pulled in to a Pemex with amenities and decided to sleep as much as we could.
About 5 we decided to continue on. The traffic was diminished, the trucks had dried the roads, and we just couldn't sit there any longer.
Found a fairly new bypass around San Luis Potosi that connects to Matehuala and Saltillo, sweet. Nice rest stop with free wifi.
We all got a nice walk, potty break, and water. Also did some rearranging, and getting ready to continue on with day 3.
