Mar 8, 2019 - Change in Intinerary

One rule in RVing is "Be Flexible" Due to the quick sale of our Abq house, we had to modify our previous travel plan by eliminating some Arizona state park stops before and after the big RV Rally in Tucson. Return to the our trip journal home page and click on the itinerary box in the upper right corner to view our revised plan.

Mar 7, 2019 - Back Home Albuquerque

We left Las Vegas early this morning. Believe it or not, we drove all the way back to Albuquerque in one day, a total of 605 miles. We had planned to stop at a hotel halfway, but when we got there, we were not tired, so we just kept rolling. That is one of the longest drives we have made in one day. :-) We drove home a different way and passed by a lot of beautiful views of Lake Mead. We saw the exit to go by Hoover Dam also but chose to move on. We love staying in hotels for a changeup for a few days and then we start missing our RV. It...

Mar 6, 2019 - Things are a-happenin'

Well folks, it's March 6th and we are in the our Motorhome at Enchanted Trails RV Park 9 miles west of Albuquerque on site E8. The house on Kachina St went on sale Sunday Feb 24th. We got an all cash offer to buy on the following Thursday Feb 28th. After a few days of counter offers regarding closing costs we accepted the offer on Sunday Mar 3rd. House inspection occurred today just after we climbed aboard the RV and headed to the RV Park. We won't know the results of the inspection for another 24-48 hours. The buyers wanted to close the...

Feb 17, 2019 - February Catch-Up

We have had a very busy month, this will be a fast update for all we have done. February 6th was our anniversary, we had snow and decided to just stay in and enjoy a take out pizza. For Valentine’s Day, we celebrated at the Route 66 Casino Resort, they had a wonderful buffet with all the snow crab legs you could eat and much more. We both love crab legs and both got our fill. :) When we have crab legs we fill up on them and hardly eat anything else with them, we did try a bite of steak and some sushi with them. It was a little pricey at $36...

Feb 5, 2019 - Starting to wrap things up.

Transition activities are in full force. (Some of this has been mentioned earlier) * Met with realtor. All looks good for a relatively quick sale of the house at a price that we were expecting. Sue & I are separating everything into groups. Things that we will attempt to take aboard the RV. Things we will include in a planned on-line auction that will be held as soon as we accept an offer on the house. Things that we will put in storage at a Abq. storage facility. The rv stuff is being loaded into the rv as soon as we feel that an item...

Feb 5, 2019 - Albuquerque, NM

We had an easy drive today, only about 180 miles to Albuquerque. We left all the aliens behind early this morning and arrived in Albuquerque around one in the afternoon. We saw a lot of antelopes on the drive today, they were everywhere. We also saw what looked like two hitchhikers until we got close enough to see, they were huge cowboys on both sides of the road. Cool! We are all set up high in the mountains near Albuquerque. We were hoping to get here in time to see at least one snow, we really missed seeing the snow this year. We were...

Jan 22, 2019 - The Rig

We have a 2008 36ft. Fleetwood Southwind 35A. The toad is 2007 Jeep Liberty utilizing a Blue Ox Tow Bar and a Blue Ox Patriot II Tow-car Brake System.

Jan 12, 2019 - Getting anxious

We are now two weeks into the New Year. The motorhome has been having some maintenance upgrades performed to get ready for full-timing. Meanwhile, Sue and I have been sorting through our "stuff" deciding what we can sell, what we will donate, what we will take aboard the RV, what we will store, and what we will throw away. BIG JOB and full of difficult decisions. Our next trial run will be early in March for two nights to an RV park in Abq testing all the upgrades to make sure they work as planned. We still have to come up with a catchie...

Nov 26, 2018 - Albuquerque, New Mexico

As we approached the end of our time at Dworshak, as part of our “exit interview,” Michelle, our supervisor, asked us to do a written evaluation of our time here. We stated that we have really enjoyed our stay and work at Dworshak Dam and Reservoir but also provided (hopefully) positive suggestions on how the gig could be improved for the next folks to fill the position. She readily agreed and said she had been thinking along the same lines. At the end of our evaluation, we mentioned that, although we had seen most areas of the dam and its...

Nov 3, 2018 - Through the mountains

Another travel day today, we wound our way between the mountains and over some passes, enjoying the ever changing scenery. Michelle restrained herself as she really wanted to just keep taking pictures, could have had hundreds today! The best picture is posted on the last entry to the blog, needed two posts today so the map reflected our trip, not just straight line from starting point to finish. We followed Interstate 25, all the way to Albuquerque, NM. Crossing into New Mexico was the Raton Pass, the highest we've been so far this trip....
