Hello Arizona!

Where are we now? NOT in New Mexico. We have finally left “The Land of Enchantment” (it was a nice 4+ months) and have entered Arizona. We’re staying at the Fort Willcox RV Park (a Passport America park) in Willcox, AZ. The park is average for the desert southwest – a small site on gravel […]

City of Rocks State Park NM

City of Rocks, NM

We are currently camping at City of Rocks State Park in New Mexico. Still in New Mexico?! you say? Yep, that’s right. For some reason, we just can’t seem to get out of this state (well, except for a couple of weeks in extreme West Texas). There were a lot of things we wanted to […]

GPS – How accurate?

Today we went geocaching at City of Rocks, NM. Geocaching is looking for hidden stuff – anyway thanks to RVGypies for getting us interested in it. We used Cheryl’s Garmin Forerunner GPS 305 and how accurate was it? It took us one foot from the hidden cache (check out the photo). We started looking for […]

On the road again

We departed T or C and Riverbend Hot Springs on the 19th of Feb. Had to replace a tire on the 5th wheel and then on to Roswell and Alien Country. On the way we stopped at Lincoln and saw where Billy the Kid escaped from jail and shot the sheriff, next we stopped at […]

White Sands Missile Range

Yesterday, we drove down to White Sands Missile Range. Cheryl’s ID card had to be renewed. While we were there we visited the Missile Museum. We wanted to see where the first atomic device was exploded but can only go there twice a year (first Saturday in April and October). . . . .

Another Wind Advisory for T or C

Yet another very windy day in TorC. The weather advisory today is calling for 25 – 35 mph winds with gusts of 50 mph. I don’t think we’ve been anywhere where the winds blow so much and so violently. The weather forecast is for rain with possible snow later today and tonight. We’ll see if […]

The Big 70

Yesterday, I turned the big 70, now I am as old as my buddy Fred, WOW! Cheryl made me my favorite chocolate cake with white icing. That is the 24th one she has made for me, best one yet. Another nice 68 degree day here in T or C, NM. Itching to get back on […]

Starting the New Year off right

Today is the 1st day of the New Year. I decided to start the new year off right with a short 20 mile bike ride. Felt good to back on the bike. I took Cheryl’s advice and only did a short ride. The temperature was a nice 60 degrees. . . . . . . […]

Still at Riverbend (1 month and counting)

We’re still Workamping at Riverbend Hot Springs in Truth or Consequences, NM. In fact, yesterday made exactly one month since we’ve arrived. T or C (as the locals call it) is a very small town, though not as small as some we’ve been in – Interior, SD (population 67) comes to mind. It has a […]

Merry Christmas

Today we decided to drive around instead of just sitting in the camper on Christmas Day. We took off from Truth or Consequences and drove towards Silver City, NM. On the way we ran into a little rain, which turned into snow by the time we got into the mountains and just east of Santa […]
