No Andrew Jackson sightings so far today. Maybe I'll find a $20 bill in the parking lot. Googlemaps says we have 452 miles to Albuquerque today. 451 are on I-40. We cross all of Oklahoma, the top part of Texas and half of New Mexico. Should be a smooth ride.
If Obama wants to put some money into infrastructure, he could start with I-40, especially in Arkansas. What a mess. Maybe some of the potholes were due to the ice storm, don't know. But it could use some work. Lincoln's campaign platform was pushing infrastructure improvements too. Back then it was canals and railroads. Today it's the interstates and bridges. We are seeing a lot that could use some work.
