Mar 12, 2017 - On the Border

We moved to the El Paso area today along I20 & I10 for a maintenance day at the El Paso West/Anthony KOA. We're about 15 miles north of the Mexico border. It's not the typical KOA. It looks fairly new and is nothing more than a gravel parking lot with hookups. I think it's one step up from the Grand Inn we stayed at a couple of days ago. The only advantage is that is is within walking distance of a Camping World. We got the laundry and grocery shopping done and tomorrow we'll make a quick stop at the Camping World to get some parts to...

Feb 5, 2017 - Hurry up and Wait

This actually occurred on the 6th. We had an 8:30 appointment for the trailer, so got out of bed at a reasonable hour to get packed up. We got there a little early, since we were parked right next door, but there was someone actually at the desk. The first thing he said was that they did not re-string the shades, they send them out. Since we were planning to be at City of Rocks that day, we crossed that off our list. The second thing he had to say was that they were short-handed, so he did not know when we could get done. So I told him we...

Fun between jobs

Feb 4, 2017 - On Our Way

We left BB on Thursday, February 2nd, to begin our off time or in between time. That is in between working at BB and working in Pagosa. It took us a while to get organized and packed to travel, and we left about an hour later than our usual start time of around 10:00 o'clock. I had already made reservations for an RV park in Van Horn, Texas, where we stayed for 2 nights. It was fairly nice, and reasonable, with new electric and sewer hookups and good secured WI-FI. Of course it had the requisite interstate and railroad tracks. We were...

Fun between jobs

Jan 20, 2017 - El Paso

Not only did we have a great breakfast at the hotel but there was even a bag of candies and chocolate tied to the door this morning. That was a first. It was cool and sprinkling so we didn't spend a lot of time going through the couple of blocks of tombstone that is blocked off. We then headed down Hwy 80 and the biggest surprise was the town of Bisbee. The downtown is majorly old and houses buildt into the side of the hill. We also stopped at a copper mine. After that the scenery got a bit boring,we went up to I10, had a early supper in...

Aug 11, 2016 - West Texas Town of El Paso

We had the opportunity to meet Joe's brother-in-law in El Paso for a family visit so we were game to go. However, the generator is not working in our motor home and, with the warm temperatures, we decided to just drive the Jeep down, stay in hotels, etc. So, we headed out early, had a wonderful drive to Roswell, NM and called it a day there. The last 20 miles were a little hairy, with very strong winds, rain, thunder and lightning; we were ready to get off the road. We like to stay at LaQuinta Hotels because they are pet-friendly and Foxy...

Summer 2016 & Beyond

Apr 13, 2016 - El Paso

El Paso. Well, here is a brief update for the last while. We spent a few more days in Albuquerque helping Dave and Cara get their RV ready and move their things into it. Got supplies and took off on Fri. (8th) for Elephant Butte Lake State Park. A really beautiful State Park. Lots of walking trails, and we took advantage of some, and it is a manmade reservoir. The boys wanted to do some fishing - but that didn't come about on this trip. We did take a walk along the shoreline of the lake 'looking' for fish and we did see some. Maybe next...

Mar 20, 2016 - El Paso, TX.

Today we drove 641 miles to within a few miles of the New Mexico border. We decided to drive through El Paso on a Sunday afternoon, instead of Monday morning rush hour. We got a room at the Red Roof Inn, in the north part of the city. A premium room with kitchen, king sized bed and no charge for pets at a bargain price. Mexican food restaurant on one side and Cracker Barrel on the other. We are set for the night. Home tomorrow.

Feb 28, 2016 - A quiet Sunday

This morning we worshipped our Lord Jesus at Calvary Chapel in El Paso. It was good to be with God’s people and hear a clear message about the love of God and how we must be authentic and truthful in our walk with God. To show by walk and talk that we are His in every situation. After lunch we made our way out of Texas and into New Mexico and stayed overnight at a very pretty State park in the mountains away from the busyness of cities and highways. Rock Hound State Park near Deming, NM. Very relaxing.

Feb 11, 2016 - Anthony, TX

Thu, 11 Feb: Another road day... We had a mostly restful nite boondocking behind Kranberry's Family Restaurant in Lordsburg New Mexico. The restaurant is proximate to both Interstate 10 and the Union Pacific mainline. The road noise was tolerable, but the trains and their crossing signals were a bit much. In addition the temperature dropped into the low thirties so there was some getting up for heavier blankets. We awoke without the benefit of an alarm and got out of bed when we decided it was time. A very leisurely morning—Sandi made...

2016 Travels

Oct 28, 2015 - The Sugar House

El Paso, TX Our route today took us through Las Cruces, NM, home to a 40’ long, 20’ high road runner made of recycled materials. It is quite a sight! There are a pair of ruby red shoes inside the gargantuan bird, symbolic of the roadrunner's heart. A scan of the roadrunner's "feathers" reveals a hodge-podge of American culture: a child's tap shoe, a small plastic lizard, the remnant of a plastic rocking horse, a golf club, a bowling trophy, even computer parts and a cell phone. The eyes are made from two Volkswagen headlights. The...

Oct 25, 2015 - Day 7...El Paso Texas

Today is Shopping Day....yay!! Had a bit of a sleep in today, didn't get moving until nearly lunch time, then headed off to Tony Lama Boots outlet, restrained ourselves quite well really...1 pair boots for Maz, 2 pairs boots for Paula, 1 pair boots for Charlotte (in a couple of years, but we couldn't resist them!), a TShirt each & a belt for Maz. Pretty good really, met some really nice people, who have come the way we are heading, so got some great tips of where to go from them. We then headed off to the main Boots shop : CowTown...

Oct 24, 2015 - Day 6...El Paso Texas

We got an early start, left Tucson at 9.15am, on the I (Interstate) 10 Highway, scenery is becoming more interesting, as in more vegetation, and rocky instead of sandy. Stopped at a rest stop, and managed to grab a cache here. We continued along the I-10 until we crossed the state border into New Mexico. We stopped for lunch at Lordsburg, a particualy unhelpful woman in the tourist bureau, gave us no information, and was totally disinterested in us wandering around. We've now noticed that the rivers and creeks indicated on the GPS are...
