Jan 16, 2021 - Tucson

Short last travel day to Tucson/Marana. We began our day by “Zooming” with our Bible Study group. Always a high light of our week. Emily and I like to say we go to the “Jim” (sic gym) every Saturday. 𯘀. Got here about 3 pm and started settling in. So peaceful out here. Emily walked the labyrinth, Joey chased a roadrunner, and I had a glass of wine. Jeff came and we had a great supper. Tomorrow we will begin assessing and planning the completion of the Tucson house remodel.

2021 to Tucson

Jan 15, 2021 - Lescombes Winery

We are almost at the end of our 2021 trip to Tucson. It has been the easiest trip yet west due to the fact that I left many of our possessions in Wilmington and the RV is easier to pack without the extraneous stuff. We have stayed at really nice campgrounds this trip. Many campgrounds have been closed due to COVID but at this time of year it is easy to find other places to stay. We also stayed for 3 days at two different campgrounds with full hook ups making it easy to cook, take showers, etc. Tonight is our last night on the road and we...

Oct 27, 2020 - A snowstorm delay

After leaving Albuquerque, we stopped for a night, Oct 25th, at Elephant Butte RV Park about two hours south along I-25. Nothing worthwhile here for a photo. On October 26th we headed further south to Deming, NM to stay one night free at a winery in town that we have stayed at on previous trips. We belong to a membership club called Harvest Hosts where we can stay free at members wineries, breweries, farms, etc. We have used this membership often during our travels. The plan was to stay one night here and move on to Roper State Park in...

Mar 20, 2020 - Coronavirus - USA Border - No Problema

That insidious alarm again did it’s thing at 5:00 Friday morning, with the San Carlos harbor lights still twinkling in the darkness below. While Jill showered I did my required duties, including pouring the excess cooler water down the toilet, hauling the cooler down to 2nd floor to the only operational ice machine in the entire hotel, then getting myself fed on a couple more of Jill’s sugar rolls. Despite being bagged in the cooler, the rolls were beginning to show their age, so much so that they no longer met the original owner’s exacting...

Feb 25, 2020 - Back to Mountain Time

Our goal yesterday was to reach Rockhound State park to spend a couple of nights. But it seemed that everyone else had the same idea, as there were no spots available. We really needed to stay here as the winds were roaring again, so eventually settled on a Good Sam campground. It is very nice, though a little pricier than I wanted, and elected to stay for 2 nights to drive in between winds. Tomorrow looks like a good day to make it to Tucson. Now if we could only get the kitty back on this time zone as 5 AM is not my favorite time to get up!

Jan 16, 2020 - Dreamcatcher RV Park (3/15/20)

We were going to leave Yuma and go to Bullhead City then Las Vegas. With the COVID-19 pandemic beginning to run rampant, we decided to head back to our home in Georgia where we could quarantine without much trouble. So we are headed across country as fast as we can because things are beginning to close at an alarming rate. We drove 6-1/2 hours to Deming, NM and spent one night here. Our friends, Jerry and Heather Cyr (who are heading back to Saskatchewan, Canada) also stayed at this park. We had dinner together and said goodbye the next...

Dec 9, 2019 - Lescombe Winery

After filling our bellies in Hatch NM, we traveled on to Deming NM. We stopped for the night at the D.H.Lescombes Winery taking advantage of free overnight camping in their parking lot using our Harvest Hosts membership. Lesombes Winery & Vineyards has restaurants in Albuquerque, Farmington, & Las Cruces NM. They were formerly known as St. Clair Winery & Vineyards but recently changed the name to the family name, D.H.Lescombes, six generations of winemaking legacy. The family have made wines across three continents. Africa (Algeria),...

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...
