Jeebus! Interesting Day

I've been carrying an iBrick around with me since I left Tucumcari. I talked to AT&T while
I was still in Santa Fe. The guy told me there was an outage due to weather. Okay so I'll get service if I leave the area or just wait it out. I moved on to Chama on Thursday. Still no service.

Went to a local watering hole for lunch and was talking to the bartender about it while I ate my lunch. As luck would have it, she's with AT&T. No problem with her phone. So after I finished eating I cruised back to the motel and got AT&T on the phone. We ascertained that my SIM card was compromised. I needed a replacement.

Annnnnnd the nearest place to get a replacement? Farmington, NM. 112 MILES AWAY. In the rain. So I made the trip. What could I do?

Had people looking for me. Every time I'd get to a place with half decent wifi, my phone would blow up with texts and email. And then crater when I replied the phone would crater. I wasn't sure if anything I sent was getting out. Back in Chama now.

And got these on the way.

We always talk about how big Texas is, the distances you have to drive in rural NM are eye opening.
