WERC 2004
Home Up



Below are general photos that don't fit into any of the other categories of either WERC or PLAY.  We left Athens relatively early on the morning of April 3, 2004 and arrived in Phoenix about 2 p.m. local time.  The weather was unusual for us in that it was rainy and cool, and it stayed that way all the way to Las Cruces.

For this first time in our trips to New Mexico, the weather was more rainy than not.  But we had sunny days when we needed them.



Obligatory airplane shot! We went with Chevy Suburbans this year, rather than full-size vans, minivans, or sedans.  The Suburbans worked out better than anything we've done before with regard to transportation.  Dan drove the white one, Ben the black one, and Darin the blue one.
We saw several of these betwen Phoenix and Las Cruces.  With the open, flat, treeless country, it's often easy to see a complete one. Always a smile, especially after the 8th consecutive hour in the car comes and goes.

This wasn't an uncommon sight, either!
Our Las Cruces home. Brian Clarke reunited with his long-lost, identical twin brother.  The brother is more handsome.
For some reason, Jennifer Dillis seemed to think it necessary to preserve this image.  Consider it preserved! No idea who held the camera for this one.
Ben managed to snag the spoiler below the bumper on his Suburban on one of those parking lot barriers. Nothing like a little bailing wire and glue to solve this problem!
In the previous four years we had been to Las Cruces, we had never stopped at a Whataburger (not to be confused with their competitor, Lotaburger).  Well, this oversight was remedied in 2004.  All I could think of as I ate my Whataburger was...you guessed it...what a burgrer! Having fun in some colorful place.
