Oct 20, 2019 - Still more Wind !

A very hard day for the driver today, Rebecca doesn’t drive in the wind, fighting 20 mph wind for 351 miles! Sometimes the wind was on our side, mostly it was head on! So with an abbreviated setup, we went out for a long relaxing dinner at IHOP. Our usual favorite local restaurant was closed. The next morning the wind had diminished to a level of slight breeze! Yea!

Mar 30, 2019 - Dream Catcher RV Park (Escapees)

Stayed an additional night due to HIGH HEAD WINDS (25mph) from the EAST. El Paso traffic is always 'white knuckle time', on a NORMAL day. I usually travel thru El Paso on the weekends, but this time on a Monday. A wreck had shut down I-10, took me 2 hours to go 3 miles, GEEZ! Oh well, just diesel and time, NO PROBLEM....

2019 RV Adventure

Mar 23, 2019 - A busy fun week

The photo captions tell the story. We had a fun week at the Escapade Rally call Escapade59. Left the rally and drove to a casino where we parked with their permission in the parking lot for a free nights stay. Left the RV there and drove our Jeep to Green Valley AZ an visited with a cousin and his wife who I have not seen in about 50 years. It was a great visit. Then we packed up and headed back to Albuquerque to finish up our house sale activities and finish up some follow up doctor visits. To break up the return trip we stopped again at...

Mar 16, 2019 - Deming, NM 81 Palms RV Resort

Another normal stop along I-10 heading west is 81 Palms RV Resort. The trip from Van Horn was a little more challenging than normal as we hit snow on and off along the way. As we pulled into Deming, it was snowing hard and the ground was covered. Chilly night, but the snow was gone in the morning and we were on our way again.

Mar 15, 2019 - Winery Fun

Spent half the day at Rockhound SP in very brisk winds and cold temps in low thirties. Then moved 8 miles down the road to St Clair Vineyard & Winery. Camped here in their parking lot with several others doing the same. Friday night is live music night in the tasting room, so after dinner we headed over and really enjoyed the evening. A lady played drums and her husband the guitar playing and singing some great tunes of the Eagles, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and many more (and really old song "Crazy" by Patsy Cline). They were very talented and...

Mar 14, 2019 - Albuquerque to Tucson

Passing through Hatch, NM. legendary farming site for the best green chile in the world. Notice the word 'chile' spelled with an "e". The federal government passed a law sponsored by New Mexico senators specifying the word in NM is spelled Chile, not Chili. When in NM the word chile refers to a green vegatable (which turns red when ripened) that varies in spicyness from mild to very hot. It is used in NM to garnish everything edible including but not limited to all sandwiches, soups, stews, pinto beans, desserts, meats, other vegetables,...

Feb 21, 2019 - Cochise to Deming

We had planned to stay at Dennis’ ranch (The Stronghold Ranch) in Cochise for 3 nights, but with another winter storm rolling in with predictions of up to 6’” of snow near the Dragoon Mountains, we decided to leave a day early on Wednesday. We packed everything up and were ready to go by noon, but we had to wait on Dennis to get back from a run into Tucson so we could pay him for the work he did and to say our goodbyes. When we first met Dennis, we were early into our fulltime adventure and spent a week in the small town of Cottondale...

2019 Life in our RV

Feb 2, 2019 - Deming, NM 81 Palms RV Resort

Finally on our way to Texas. We traveled I-10 to 81 Palms RV Resort, in Deming, NM. This is just a stop over park, but the people are very friendly. This is a 55+ park and children are not welcome. We don't run into many of these parks. I talked with a nice couple from Illinois and a lady from Michigan who is wintering at this park. Deming was nicknamed "New Chicago". It was expected that the surge of railroad usage, that the city would grow and resemble Chicago, IL. The Silver Spike was driven here in 1881 to commemorate the meeting of the...

Winter2019

Jan 26, 2019 - Off The Beaten Path

As always, we prefer to take side roads and byways as we travel, if we can avoid major highways, that’s what we do! When we left Fort Huachuca we dropped south driving through the historic mining town of Bisbee (we stayed there a few years ago) to Douglas, AZ which is as close to Mexico as you can get. We then took State Route 80 to the New Mexico border. As we were driving we could see the remnants of a major railroad line so I googled it and found out that the road we were on used be called Highway 80 when it ran from Tybee, Georgia to...

Jan 23, 2019 - Small Town with Awesome People.

Writing tonight from our second night in New Mexico. The tour at Kartschner Cavern was awesome. We toured the Big Room first. This is the room where the two college guys, Gary Tenen and Randy Tufts first discovered in the cave in 1974. They explored it for seven years. I can't imagine what that must have been like. We saw staligmites, stalictites, helictites, soda straws, bacon, drapes and columns. All formed by carbonated water and limestone. Helictites come from the wall and defy gravity. Bacon looks just like bacon hanging from the...

Jan 21, 2019 - A Good Truck Day in and about Deming

I am pretty sure my Low Coolant Level problem is cured - much to the delight, I am sure, to those from whom I've received advice and support at an excessive level. It's been a stressful week and my dear forum friends, Newt and Trap, have consoled, advised and suggested and it looks like they were right. The dealership sent me off saying my truck was fixed, but 14 miles into my second test drive on Saturday it had had a warning once again. It was Trap and Newt who said air could still be in the system and it might be possible to top off,...
