Route 66 - The Mother Road (Part Two).

"Anyone seen my keys?"

Day Two - Kingman, Az to Albuquerque, NM

According to Google Maps, it's just over three hours to the Grand Canyon from Kingman. We didn't get our heads down till late. I set the alarm for 5am. If we couldn't make the canyon by dawn, we'd be there not too long after. The constant thrum of rigs pulling in and out all night made for a fitful sleep, yet it was with a sense of anticipation that I sprang from the covers, nearly smacking my big ol' nose again as I shuffled to the door. No generator meant no heating, and it was cold, baby. Freezing cold. But...I was going to propose to my girl today, so I had a spring in my step (and a ring in my coat pocket).
