Oct 4, 2019 - Santa Fe

Arrived in Santa Fe, NM. Only here for a few days. Visited the old town area and did some browsing in the shops. Lots of cool Native / Hispanic stuff. Even checked out St. Francis Cathedral. Visited Canyon Street, which is one of the oldest areas of Santa Fe, and is now a place for artists galleries. Some interesting things, but some are crazy expensive. Last day here and we visited the International Museum of folk art. Tons of exhibits and lots of miniature scenes. Next stop is Roswell to visit the Aliens.

We went to Walmart today and got a few things. We then did laundry for a couple of hours, and rested. We then went with Rod & Helen Coe to Olive Garden for dinner. After dinner we went to see a movie called Downton Abbey. It was a good movie and we went to the RV for the night.

We had a leasurly morning, had bacon and eggs. Today we toured Santa Fe and looked at the shops. They were very interesting, to say the least. Stopped at a French pastery shop to have a coffee and a treat. When we came back to the RV park, we found Rod & Hellen Coe there. They are in charge of the rally on Monday. Tomorrow more that Santa Fe has to offer.

Today we went from Amarillo, TX to Santa Fe, NM. It was a clear day with a 30 mph head wind, so the go was slow west bound. Once we turned north, the head wind turned into a cross wind. But we got to Santa Fe safe and sound and look forward to not having to move for a few days.

Sep 23, 2019 - Santa Fe

A Great American Artist Day 19 Today we are visiting Santa Fe the home of the Georgia O'Keeffe museum and I am so excited. (We have had very intermittent wi-fi over the last few days so I am trying to catch up when and if I can, using notes I have made). When we get in the car, we find a note which has fallen down between the windscreen and the bonnet of the car. Apparently, we should have paid at the Rio Grande car park yesterday ($3 for the day and we are being threatened with a citation!). We drive to Rio Grande visitor centre and pay...

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...
