This past weekend, I got the “opportunity” to go back to visit Hobbs, NM. Actually, it was a planned trip to go see my girlfriend’s sister graduate high school. She graduated from the same high school that we went to. We flew out on Saturday from Phoenix to Midland, TX. The reason we chose Phoenix is that for some odd reason Southwest doesn’t fly from Tucson to Midland…they don’t even fly from Tucson to Lubbock. This is a bit strange, because Southwest does fly from Tucson to El Paso, and from El Paso to Midland…but you cannot choose this route via their website. Anyway, it was nice to see my dad and take a couple days off. I got a chance to go to the new Black Gold Casino in Hobbs, and then got to play 9 holes of golf in 102 degree temperatures. 🙂 All in all, a great trip.
