I was born in Tucumcari, raised in california. I went back to Tucumcari and stayed for 6 months, then returned to No. California. I loved being there the only bad thing about Tucumcari is that there isn't anything to do. My sister would take me out driving through the country roads, we went to Ute Lake but the mosquitos were eating us alive. The video store on First St. was more up to date than the video store on Rte 66.
I still can't get over the 7 A. M. REPORT of traffic stops,etc in the mornings, and the weather reports it is always "Partly Cloudy".
What Tucumcari needs is to "seriously " ask themselves
"Why are people moving away? What can we do for our town to keep people from moving? The people from Tucumcari have no choice as to where to shop for groceries, for clothing, for used items because the thrift shop on Main St is only open occasionly. The whole town goes into hibernation at lunch time.
Don't get me wrong I would move back in a heart beat, I love Tucumcari.
