I wondered if you were serious, and you did not answer my question "Don't you watch cowboy movies? ".

But for a possible real good action time, why don't your friends visit the Alamo (It's in Texas) and stand out front and say something like "Golly Martha, it sho aint very big...."

As an update to the previously mentioned construction on San Mateo, the main part of the work is completed along the road itself. The remaining work is centered on the interchange at I-40. The new bridge is open though, just strewn with 'Burque barrels (that's what I call those orange construction things.). That stretch from I-40 to around Montgomery was getting flat out dangerous. It was a hassle to get through, but I'm sure pleased with the results. As for the Rio... I can see where it would be disappointing to eastern eyes, but I personally like to pump it up for all it's worth, like telling people to 'prepare for the river crossing' before we get to it. Also, I've suggested they rename the river race a regatta. Just the billboards alone would be great marketing:"We're off to the Albuquerque Regatta!".

Thanks for a little hunor! Some people take things too seriously. If we keep sucking water the way we do, The Rio will be a nice north south highway one day
