May 20, 2019 - Albuquerque and Family - May 16-19, 2019

Our 1st stop was in Albuquerque – only 50 miles south. We checked into the RV Camp on Kirtland Air Force Base for our stay. The Camp is nothing fancy but it does meet our needs – especially being close to Patrick and his crowd. The initial and biggest reason for this stay was Alex-s graduation from high school. The ceremony was Thursday night at Tingley Coliseum. His brother and sisters, Mike (his dad) and fiancé, Patrick and Abbie, Abbie’s folks and Tom and I proudly attended the ceremony. Alex will be off to Emery Biddle in Prescott, AZ...

May 15, 2019 - Heading Out for 2019

This trip should be about 90 nights long. The main focus is around visiting some of the Great Lakes -Superior, Huron and Michigan. On the way we will make stops in Cheyenne, at Mount Rushmore and a couple nights along the Missouri River. We have never been in this part of the country so we will stay in the Minneapolis area for a week. Duluth will serve as our Lake Superior base for 9 days. We will spend a week in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and then journey down to the Milwaukee area where we hope to eat some great cheese. We head home...

May 6, 2019 - Workaround photo hack

By deleting older photos I reduced the limit and can now add more. I hope that you can enlarge them as I created several montages so as to optimize sharing them with you. After seeing a preview I regret that the montages do not enlarge very well. Sorry. Today we toured Santa Fe old areas and museum. Tomorrow on the road northeast.

Apr 10, 2019 - Catch-Up Vickie & Sam

This is a quickie catch-up from the last few days with Vickie and Sam visiting. We drove over to Madrid again so they could see this cool town where the Wild Hogs movie was filmed. We shopped for a while and continued on to visit Santa Fe, New Mexico. We visited the beautiful Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, this is the one with the miracle staircase, it is incredible. After Santa Fe, we stopped in Edgewood, New Mexico for fabulous Mexican food and more at the Chili Restaurant. We all had different items, I had chicken fajitas, Vickie had a mix...

Aug 10, 2018 - Day 73 - Santa Fe NM

For once, the day's travel goes almost exactly as planned. We leave Fairplay just before 10 driving separately and it's a good thing we did. The RV could have probably hauled the truck for about 80% of the first hour out of the mountains, but that other 20%, I don't think so. The engine was straining even without the tow. After traversing the last big hill, we pull over in a little town called La Jara and I hook up the truck. It was like the perfect spot because the next 2.5 hours were about as flat and straight a drive as you can imagine....

Summer 2018 Big Trip

Jun 24, 2018 - Santa Fe, NM

June 23 Overnight at Cheyenne Wyoming June 24 Overnight at Pueblo Colorado June 25-27 Santa Fe Skies RV Park, Santa Fe New Mexico We are at a RV park designed for big rigs on the outskirts of town. It’s been very hot and we wondered how the 2 remaining AC units (1 died in South Dakota) would handle very hot weather on our way to Seal Beach. So far so good, during the day we go into bunker mode-pulling down the black night shades on windows and windshield and making a point of exiting/entering the rig quickly to keep the cool in and the hot...

Spring Trip 2018

Jun 23, 2018 - Zander with us from 6/23-7/1/2018

Our grandson, Zander, flew into Albuquerque on June 23rd. On June 25th, Zander was introduced to fly fishing under the guidance of a professional guide from High Desert Angler, Santa Fe, NM. The waters in the area were low due to lack of winter snowfall and rain this year. The guide took Zander to the upper reaches of the Pecos River, Pecos, NM to private waters since the Santa Fe Forest was closed due to fire danger. Zander did a great job of picking up the instructions very quickly. He caught a Rainbow Trout and seven Brown Trout on this,...

May 20, 2018 - Leaving Santa Fe for Denver 5-17-2018

We got a late start…not a little late. I have a suggestion for an entrepreneur looking for an idea. There is a need, at least by Tom and me, for someone we can call to load our trailer for our trips. Clothes, food staples and food for the first few meals, crock pot, electric frying pan, the iron, cleaning products (laundry and household), refrigerator and freezer items, computers, printer, office supplies, pet supplies, and ………… The drive was uneventful other than the “slow” created by pulling our much beloved trailer…home away from home....

May 16, 2018 - Santa Fe

We arrived in Santa Fe, NM yesterday. This rv park, Santa Fe Skies RV Park, is very nice and overlooks the mountains and adobe housing. It has a walking trail of about a mile that circles the park. We took a walk after settling in, but found that because of the elevation of over 7000 ft, it was a challenge. Still the weather is perfect, in fact, this morning it was chilly enough to use the fireplace. Later in the day, a clear blue sky, and a temperature of around 84 was great for driving into Santa Fe to walk around and explore galleries, a...

Mar 26, 2018 - Albuquerque & Santa Fe

We did not spend a lot of time in Albuquerque, most of it spent in Santa Fe. We had a nice dinner at one of Albuquerque’s brew pubs, Nexus. It was a very trendy place with great food and a good selection of craft beers. The next morning we drove up to Santa Fe for a day of sightseeing and shopping. OMG the shopping! I lost count of the shops we went in and sidewalk vendors we browsed. Thankfully it was more browsing than buying!! We were lucky enough to get there in time to see a beautiful and moving procession for Palm Sunday. They were...

Nov 10, 2017 - HOME

Yes, we got home on Wednesday, 11-9. Tom has been cleaning and winterizing the trailer. I have been shopping for groceries, sorting through mail and taking care of some correspondence. We had a great trip.. It was 86 nights and even with some unexpected happenings we cannot complain about any of the trip. It seems like we weren't gone that long but we saw and did so much we must have been gone as long as the calendar shows. I didn't feel the need to take a lot of photos because the being there was the memory.

Oct 28, 2017 - Santa Fe

Our first day was a day for relaxation. We watched ballgames, ate, and slept. Shopping in Sante Fe is a wonderful, unique experience. It is a feast for anyone's eyes with clothes, jewelry, art, jewelry, clothes, and more jewelry. Amazing! Did I say jewelry? Tuesday we headed out for the Bradbury Science Museum in Los Alamos. Of course Los Alamos is most well known for the development of the atomic bomb. Some of the museum is devoted to that but most of the museum has interactive exhibits that highlight the research that is currently taking...
