This was our first trip to Tucumcari with our destination as the Blue Swallow Motel. Kevin and Nancy were great hosts for our large Motorcycle group, taking us on a local day trip, then visiting and cooking out around the fire pit. Kevin pointed out the local murals theme painted from the 1950s and 1960s all around Tucumcari. We will be back for another trip in the future and look forward to many more days and nights at the Blue Swallow on Route 66. P.S. Kevin is great with the camera, as you can see on their Facebook page of the worldly guest that make the Blue Swallow their destination on Route 66.
