We spent the night in beautiful Truth or Consequences. Boy, talk about small town. They pretty much roll up the sidewalks by 8pm. We stayed in an old school motel that had the one benefit of being attached to a hot spring spa. T or C used to be named Hot Springs before they changed their name thanks to the game show. The motel was some place where tilt_longtail would be right at home. It was one of those motels where probably half the tenants were using it as apartments. I don't think the decor had been updated since the 1950's. On the bright side I did partake in a hot spring soak in a private tub which made the 2 beers I had consumed seem like 6. I was one mellow bear!
