Default This weekend's road trip

What do you have planned for the coming weekend?

I found the perfect road trip for this coming weekend.

Las Cruces, NM is holding the first ever "Pat Garret Heritage Festival" to honor Sheriff Pat Garret, the former, now deceased Sheriff of Lincoln County, most notable for gunning down Billy the Kid in 1881.

We will, of course, stop in Fort Sumner, NM to visit the grave of the aforementioned outlaw, who was known as William Bonney.

There are rumors though, that Mr Bonney was never actually killed by Garret, and there was a fellow who showed up in 1948, name Brushy Bill Roberts who claimed to be the former "Billy"

Will be interesting to see how some of that plays out in the festivites at Las Cruces.

Whatever, it should prove to be a fine distraction from all the focus on the Superbowl.
