      Only a few bits of the sign are lit at night -- but it's still an amazing sign and the motel is still open.

      that is an amazing sign with so much detail. love it
      Sorry you are having so much car trouble. What a drag. I've had some trouble with my Honda lately and finally figured out it is a relay. Got it fixed. Hoping when I hit the road next month that all goes well because I know nothing about cars.
      And the lack of sun....in the SW....I am so surprised. Come to Oregon...we are having gorgeous warm sunny weather.....and that is a BIG surprise too.
      Really enjoying your travel blog

      Thanks. Part of the reason I have car trouble is the amount of miles I drive each day. I drive about 13+ hours per day -- about 40,000 miles on a trip like this. And mostly I wind up in the shop often just because I notice things with my van far sooner than most people. I'm sure the little misfire wouldn't have been recognizable to anyone but me for another 50,000 miles at least.

      I grew up in Deming in the 70's and that sign was always lit up. I shot this image of it back in 2007. It was cool to see all the neon glowing and the horses legs animated in motion.
