Eagle Nest, New Mexico, 2012. “People like to drive because driving is actually and symbolically an almost perfect mechanism for escape…there is probably no human being who does not have troubles, real or imagined, from which he at times feels the need to flee.” George R. Stewart.

We own a 1975 GMC Sierra Grande 15 in Maine and an '86 Chevrolet Custom Deluxe 10 in West Texas. Also a pair of '97 Volvo 850 wagons. Average age in the fleet is 24 years-we're recyclers. I've published 2 novels: THE LAW OF DREAMS (2006), and THE O'BRIENS (2012), and 2 collections of stories NIGHT DRIVING (1987), and TRAVELLING LIGHT (2013). More of my book stuff at www.peterbehrens.org I was a Fellow at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study for 2012-13. I'll be teaching at Colorado College and Wichita State in 2013-14.

1948 Chevrolet Fleetline; 1959 Chevrolet Impala; Santa Fe. And Comancheria.

Best 2 books I've read about New Mexico Lately: Pekka Hamamainen's Comanche Empire and Hampton Sides' Blood and Thunder

From Michael S Moore in Santa Fe:
"OK, I wouldn't recommend any tourist town at "high season" and certainly not Santa Fe, New Mexico, but I had to go back down there to check on our show and saw this mystery vehicle near the Plaza on a sunny morning;New Mexicans are known for massaging sheet metal but, wow..my best guess? '48 Chevy Fleetline...but it's only a guess.


 "This one's way easier; the license plate even said "1959"

"This one?(" --MSM
