Around the US, Day 8

Today was the most boring drive – eastern part of New Mexico and Texas are plain and without any interesting landscapes. Oklahoma is more interesting but still kind of flat but greener. I-40 highway is much better in Oklahoma than in Texas but max allowed speed changes from 75 mph (~121 km/h) to 70 mph (~113 km/h) as soon as you cross the border between the states. Lots of trucks on the highway. There was a couple of areas with very strong crosswinds – not the best things to feel your car shaking at 75 mph when you catch the gusts.

Drove 536 miles (~863km) today. As usual, the maps are available here.
