Oct 10, 2007 - Day 42 - A little of Las Cruces, a lot of Mesilla

Hello from the Sunny South West, I arrived at Sunny Acres Campground in Las Cruces at 1:30 by my watch, and 12:30 local time. Yes, in my exodus from Texas I crossed out of Central Time and into Mountain Time...soooo, now I'm only 1 hour away from home...a nice thought. Heard cars/rv's leaving at 6 this morning and thought, oh maybe the internet will be back!! So I jumped out of bed, took a shower and shaved, poured myself a bowl of Wheaties + OJ, and lit up the computer...I was wrong. By 7:15 this travel bug was hitting the left turn signal...

Oct 4, 2007 - Poised in Las Cruces

Oct. 4, 2007 Susan got up with me and took me to the Sonoma Ranch Golf Course. When we pulled in, we met a fellow that was going to play as a single as well. His name was Ed Pederson, and he was from Chicago. He invited me to join him, so we ended up playing together. He is a better and more consistent golfer than I, but he had problems with his game just as I had with mine. The Sonoma Ranch course reminds me of the Angel Park course in Las Vegas. It is a course carved out of the desert with many elevation changes and a sharp contrast...

Oct 3, 2007 - Drivin' Drivin' Drivin'

Oct. 3, 2007. Drivin' drivin' drivin', keep that coach a drivin' , drivin'down the road, RV! Yee haa. (Sorry-Rawhide got away from me) Picked up early from the Fort Stockton KOA, but piddled around doing business and handling a D&J conference call until about 11:30. We finally got on the road about 11:45 headed toward El Paso. We just kept on the road until we hit the Pilot truck stop in Van Horn (we ate here about a month ago on our way to Odessa) where we had lunch at the Wendy's and gassed up. We have had several truckers who are filling...

Jul 9, 2007 - Journey home begins

This morning we awoke to complete our last scheduled walk in Santa Fe. As we were leaving the park, the truck began making a terrible whining noise. Unsure of the problem, we located and headed for the nearest Dodge dealer. Since we had several hours to wait, we had the shuttle take us into downtown Santa Fe for our walk. We have been to Santa Fe before and have always been fascinated by the mixture of the Spanish, Indian, and American cultures. The walk took us past many of our favorite locations including San Miguel Church, the oldest...

Jun 10, 2007 - Another night at Wal-Mart, but this time in Las Cruces, NM

Today's drive was very uneventful. We decided to stop at the Wal-Mart in Las Cruses, NM. When we arrived there we drove past the front of the store to a small empty parking space on the side. We immediately went into the store to ask permission to park. The lady in the Customer Service booth said that it would not be a problem. We again "Waltzed through Wal-Mart" for additional supplies. See there really is no free campsite. That night we had a good rain and lots of wind, but we made it just fine.

May 24, 2007 - Las Cruces or Bust!

The weather in the panhandle of Texas has caused us to re-route our trip. We originally planned to continue cruising I-40 into Amarillo, TX then on to Oklahoma City, OK then to Dallas, TX (not in one day of course). They are having horrible storms in the area so we have decided to go south from here. We would like to check out old El Paso, TX but the area is a little rough for us with the RV so we will stay in Las Cruces, NM and then day trip it over to El Paso, TX and perhaps Juarez, Mexico. We visited the Mesilla Historic Area of Las...

Mar 5, 2007 - Las Cruces, NM

We really liked Las Cruces, NM. The campground was very nice with adequate spots and a really nice club house and great dog run. It was warm in Las Cruces and began the shorts weather we were looking for based on the winter we left behind in Seattle. This is also where we had our first problem with the coach. The water pump had to replaced, fortunately there was an RV repair next to the campground and they were able to fix the problem. We visited a suburb of Las CrRuces by the name of La Mesilla, a very small town with lots of shops and a...

Our 2007 Travels

Jan 12, 2007 - Las Cruces, New Mexico--another nice surprise along the way

Sunny Acres RV Park is a very nice camp that is also Passport America and only $13 per night. It is located inside the city of Las Cruces, but is very quiet and clean with nice hosts. Full timer travel friends Dick and Paula Fenner also joined us at this location and toured on their own. We spent a day on a drive to Alamogordo and the spectacular White Sands National Monument. White Sands is one of those very special places located in a remote part of the country that doesn't see the average road warrior. A visit here is worth the effort....

Nov 27, 2006 - Las Cruces, McHales

I know the map looks funny because it cannot go along the highway, only point to point. We drove Interstate 10 thru El Paso and arrived in Las Cruces, NM. We are visiting with friends Bill & Sandy McHale that we met in California as we were starting out on this adventure last April. They are also Alpenlite owners and we are parked at their house on their RV pad while theirs is in the shop. Their house is on a higher elevation of the foothills with a beautiful view of a the Organ Mountain Range to the east and the city to the west. After...

Jun 9, 2005 - Tuscon to Las Cruces

Karen has purchased this book about great, but out-of-the-way places to eat all over the US - it is called "Roadfood". This is how we found ourselves driving all the way over the other side of town to a place called Gus Balon's. To be fair though, the food was damn good and I even learned something about eggs. Eggs have been described on most menus so far as "fried", so I was always a bit perplexed when the waitress would ask "how would you like your eggs?". Personally, I'm partial to poached eggs, so I always reply: "poached". My epiphany...
