Willin’ to be Movin’ A Reflection on Journeys with Cabas By Dr. Timothy A. Daniels ’03

On December 30, 2004, the lights of Albuquerque were dimming in the rear view mirror, about a thousand miles from my drop off in Nashville, and Vic sang, “I’ve been from Tucson to Tucumcari,” amazingly the only lyrics I heard over two 16-hour days in the car.
