Clearly you've never crossed the border into Clovis. lolMaybe I haven't been over there in the right places during the right time of year?
I do notice when you cross from w. Tx into NM everything suddenly gets pretty and nice and just feels different. You're still in the middle of nowhere but it's nice nowhere not shithole nowhere. There's a pretty distinct line there as far as landscapes go.
Crossing from Texico into Clovis it's like you've crossed from nice farm country onto Fury Road. Mostly because NM's state government is so corrupt that they won't take any of the gas and oil money they're skimming and put it into the roads that gas and oil industry uses, so highway 60 into Texas is like offroading on the moon.
