Today I virtually passed through Clovis, New Mexico. I readily admit the gap between this destination and Ft. Stockton was much smaller than say my first target (Jose’s first Dallas abode at 208). I just have to go with what I find on the maps. The town stuck out for two reasons.
The first was in a Star Trek comic John Byrne wrote/drew, it’s pretty cool too since it involves the Enterprise‘s adventure a few years before Kirk was in command. Anyway, Clovis comes into play when the landing party is bombarded with arrows and somebody (not Spock) notes the designs.
The second was infrequently mentioned by an ex-friend who may have been trying to use the Clovis findings to validate the events in the Book of Mormon. Not likely. Besides, fair-skinned Europeans didn’t have a monopoly on certain architectural designs. Look at the pyramids found in Central America, Thailand and Egypt. It means the structure is something humans like, not proof of Egyptian colonization.
Moving along, the progression bar has been pushed back to target number five, the place Bugs Bunny keeps making a wrong turn at. Even with my recent success of three miles/day, I think the next 220 miles will take all Summer and Fall. As I look over my spreadsheet, I do have a good shot at finishing before the year ends.
Thanks for all your support!
