Days 1-3: Arizona, New Mexico, Texas & Oklahoma

The past few days have been spent doing A LOT of driving.  We're focused on getting to Michigan to pick up our RV and have to stay in hotels in the meantime while en route.  Therefore, we're trying to get to Michigan sooner rather than later, so we don't have to live out of suitcases for too long....
