Th’ Gaussling & family are off on a springbreak motoring tour of that mysterious Land of Enchantment, New Mexico. The main destination is Carlsbad Caverns. We’ll take a cave tour and refresh ourselves with the wondrous magic of decorative columnar evaporites and ancient guano. Along the way we’ll visit Roswell for a close encounter with cosmic kitsch. In Sante Fe we’ll see Pueblo kitsch. And in Almagordo, there is space kitsch. Remember Col. John Stapp?   

Like Texas, New Mexico has an abundance of miles and miles of miles and miles. We’ll see about six hundred of them, one at a time.

Ciao, baby.
