Mar 27, 2018 - Lordsburg, NM

We hit the road and our first stop is an overnight in Lordsburg NM. I tell people that this is just a simple parking lot with hookups, and seeing again confirms it. The restaurant in town is back in business after being closed for 2 years. It looks just like it always did, and the menu is the same also.

Dec 6, 2017 - Lordsburg NM

Wed, 06 Dec: Scratching our "Hitch Itch"... After we've been stationary for a while the urge to travel gets pretty strong. Other than a quick car trip to Albuquerque we've been sticking close to home. Today our "hitch itch" got to be too much so we're back on the road. Specifically, today is the first day of a 2,200 mile trip east to Wauchula Florida. Today's 228 miles took us from our home park, RoVer's Roost, west of Casa Grande to Lordsburg NM, a small town on I 10 about 22 miles east of the AZ/NM border. We're parked for the evening in...

2017 Travels

Feb 10, 2016 - Lordsburg, NM

Wed, 10 Feb: On the road again, and it feels pretty good... We call it "hitch itch", that feeling that if our house has wheels why aren't they turning? We'd been in our space at RoVer's Roost since early November with a brief trip to Quartzsite. While we love settling in at the Roost with our extended "family", we do miss the change of view outside our windows. So, let's get rolling... We got most of our pre-departure chores out of the way yesterday so this morning was mostly going thru our checklists to ensure that we didn't forget or...

2016 Travels

Feb 8, 2016 - Lordsburg NM

Another beautiful day on the road. We had to make a stop at Camping World El Paso to purchase a new GPS. The Randy McNally gave up the ghost so it was time to get a new one. Then we needed to make a stop at Wal-Mart to pick up some new rubber feet for my canes. As Candy was in Wal-Mart a local gentleman stopped and started telling me how great the area was. His name was Pepe Bratz and he was a lifelong native of Las Cruces other than 18 months he spent in Chicago which he hated and moved back. We talked for 45 minutes, he was a very...

2016 Westward HO

Jan 2, 2016 - Lordsburg, New Mexico

Lordsburg is our last stop before we get to our final destination in Arizona. The elevation and temperature have not changed much, but this is dry country. The drizzle we had in Junction and Van Horn and the humidity made it feel a lot colder. We crossed the continental divide, an underwhelming experience (see the picture?). We have gone through another time change. The cats still want to be fed on Eastern time and resist the reset of their internal clocks. They will slowly adjust over the next few weeks, but till then it is tough on the...

Dec 16, 2015 - Lordsburg, NM

The last couple days have been all driving. West Texas and New Mexico are one whole heck of a lot of open space. It's beautiful country but a little intimidating when you see how isolated it is. From Fort Stockton, we headed for Anthony, TX. Anthony is milepost 0 so right on the New Mexico border. It was 267 miles covered in 6 hours, with gas and Marley stops. And then we headed out for Lordsburg, NM. It was a relatively short ride of 145 miles. We arrived around 1 PM and reconnected with Glenn and Connie and Rocky and Lana. Lordsburg...

Oct 27, 2015 - On a wing and a prayer

Tucson, AZ The Pima Air & Space Museum is one of the world's largest aerospace museums. It features nearly 300 aircraft spread out over 80 acres. There are 6 enormous indoor exhibit hangars. There is also the “Boneyard” tour – a 75-minute bus tour of 4,000+ aircraft from the U.S. Air Force, Navy-Marine Corps, Army, Coast Guard, and several federal agencies including NASA in varying degrees of storage, being regenerated or recycled. Unfortunately because of timing, we had to leave the bus tour for a future trip. Instead we spent our time in...

On the road again

Oct 15, 2015 - Lordsburg, NM

Thu, 15 Oct: A good road day... After two very restful nites at the Monticello RV Park in Elephant Butte it is time to move on. We weren't in any particular rush so we took things as they came and rolled wheels at 0911. Bob retraced our route over a half mile of gravel road and then another five miles of a twisty, hilly, and narrow paved road to the Interstate. Then south on I 25 some forty miles to Hatch, where we picked up New Mexico 26 direct to Deming. This nice two lane road cuts the corner and saves about forty miles over continuing...

2015 Travels

Mar 21, 2015 - Lordsburg, NM

We are leaving Arizona and starting our trip home to Connecticut. It is a 3,000 mile trip and we will travel about 300 miles a day, camping our way directly east to Georgia and then heading north. We make 3 time changes on the way. On the first day we are leaving Arizona on Mountain Standard Time and entering New Mexico on Mountain Daylight Savings Time, since AZ does not observe DST. Since the cats get me up well before dawn, I am looking forward to these time changes.

283 miles today. We made it out of Texas, finally! We are now in New Mexico! Lordsburg is a nice town. Being on I-10 and the railroad gives it a certain character like all the others with travel services, but I like the fact that the town is laid out in a small circle instead of the 'strip' like most of the others. There is a lot of open countryside out there, and we saw some of it today. Except for El Paso, West Texas is wide open. New Mexico is pretty similar. One thing we found really bizarre: We were driving on I-10 in New Mexico...

Apr 10, 2014 - Steins Ghost Town and Cemetery

Steins Ghost Town is located 20 miles West of Lordsburg on Highway 10. We found it to be fenced and posted. The fence is 3' high and wire so you are able to see much of the town. You can also view the town from elevation by using the Westbound onramp. The Cemetery was in deplorable shape. Vandals and Thieves have removed all salvageable metal and busted up headstones.

Apr 10, 2014 - Shakespeare Ghost Town

A visit to Shakespeare Ghost Town found it locked and posted. They offer tours on 1 or 2 weekends per month (depends on the month) and the next one was the weekend after we leave. (NOT worth staying around 3 more days) We were able to get a few pictures. Shakespeare Ghost Town
