Tried to send a comment last episode but unsure what went wrong. I am my family were in Gallup, NM. back in March (were there for over 21/2 months) and were making our way back to Tampa, Fl. and we too had experienced a similar situation. We were on the road from Gallup to El Paso heading towards San Antonio (man it is a long distance). I decided to take a short rest about 20 minutes east of El Paso.
I woke up around 3 am. and started for San Antonio. Somewhere around 100 miles away fro El Paso we were stopped by the Homeland Security/Customs. As we pulled up, the officer approached my car and asked me if we were American citizens. I stated we were and were signaled to go through the checkpoint. It upsets me to have to go through these ordeals when we want to travel (by air or land). My wife took another permanent position in Florida but both of us want to become permanent travelers with our 3 boys. Just waned you to know. John from Tampa
