Today was day 26. After charging L2 for $10 in N Acomita, we left on old 66 for Grants, NM. Explored all the small towns on Route 66 enroute to Grants.
At Grants did some exploring and had a great breakfast at the 1st Street Cafe.
After breakfast decided to top up our charge at the nearby Grants KOA RV park. The park was nearly empty so we figured it would be easy. Asked the rather gruff attendant if we could charge. He took my card and ran it for $34.50, saying it was 11.50 an hour.
Incredulous, i asked him why he was charging more than TWICE than even the most expensive KOA we have charged at. He said "because you are taking up an RV site." Seriously.
He even wrote the "check-in time on the top of the receipt so we wouldnt steal his precious electrons for more than 3 hours. Of the 45 spaces in the park 4 were being used. Highway Robbery.
Anyways we left after charging for Gallup. We had been led to believe that the Continental Divide would be hard to make in the imiev. No problem!
We had 46 miles left RR at Continental
Divide, 20 more than we would need to
Get to Gallup. We arrived in Gallup, ready to stay at the El Rancho hotel,
But it was CLOSED due to the city working on a water main. No water.
They were letting people in the lobby to see and photograph it. Awesome!
We are staying at the Gallup Comfort Inn and charging L1 for free. Today we drove 64 miles.
