1:34 p.m. A car just crossed the median. Oh $*%*!
3:17 p.m. Felisa says she has to go potty. Of course she does. We just passed Trinidad and are headed up Raton Pass with no where to stop.
3:22 p.m. Oh no, Oh no! Hurry! Go Fast!
3:27 p.m. Clearly we aren’t going to make it over the pass into Raton before we stop so… pull over on the next available shoulder (there aren’t many going up the pass) so Felisa can pee on the side of the road as the traffic whizzes by. I sure hope we don’t get run over.
