 We left the Interstate somewheres in New Mexico and struck out over the secondary roads visiting such places as El Morrow, Sky City, as well as various New Mexico State Parks to include Neuova(sp),​and Clayton Lakes. Elkhart,KS has an exceptional museum and a nice city rv park. Not much as a travel log, but then anyone who reads this can ask questions should they like. Our goal was to get off the Interstate where all we did was see semis and other vehicles flying by! Just not a fun way to travel.We seem to have wireless service again and hopefully I can add a little each day of our story along with the highlights along the byways. Obviously if this is really really boring no one will ever read it, I will certainly not know until  after the fact. Its time to secure the old Streamline and head out for another day. We left the Interstate somewheres in New Mexico and struck out over the secondary roads visiting such places as El Morrow, Sky City, as well as various New Mexico State Parks to include Neuova(sp),​and Clayton Lakes.

 Dave Galloway the owner now knows of tincantourist and gave me permission to use the photos and his name.  Also in one very small town of which I forget the name, we came across some very old cars covered with partial canvas. A couple of photos and a sneak peek and there it was! The perfect tow vehicle for our '27 something travel trailer! A 1920's era Buick 4-door. Remember I said a guy has to dream, then plan, then make it happen. Wonder if I'll ever get beyond the dreaming part on this one. Sharon says to tow it with either the '58 Packard Hawk, or the '66 Mercury Hardtop. At this point I'd be satisfied with just towable. With a quick search on Google I did discover that '27 Buicks did have wire spoked wheels just like the one we recovered from the desert. A lady in another OK town who admired the Prince also knows of tincantourist,​ she has both a '62, and a '69 Shasta just added that to let folks know I'm actively recruiting. Two hundred miles a day is just too much, I figure on subsequent trips the limit will have to be set at 100 miles a day or less, what with stopping to look at things,and shopping for treasures there just isn't enough time to travel very far. One last prime piece of information and I'll get to organizing our story. We talked with a gentleman in Buffalo,OK who makes two-story cabins in his garage. Seems like he retired but got bored and starting building these things. The unique parts are that he is 75, and his 20' cabin is two story. He relays that he can deliver it on a trailer-just thought that was sort of special. Thats it I've run out of things to prevent me from writing more seriously,​although this quick thought just ran through my mind: Our '27 something has a door much like the Airstream,​Silverstreak,​ and Streamline, does anyone know when this was first done?  Dave Galloway the owner now knows of tincantourist and gave me permission to use the photos and his name.  Also in one very small town of which I forget the name, we came across some very old cars covered with partial canvas.
