Aug 6, 2017 - No More Camping
We have been back at our "mesa top hide out" for a week now and sort of enjoyed our 2 week stay at Abiquiu Lake but I doubt we will ever do a 2 week stay anywhere else without having access to a sewer. The campground offers water and 50 amp electric but no sewer. It does have a dump station but if we have to hitch up and move we'll move on down the road. - The campground showers was located right next to our site and I used it during our 2 week stay and for a big part of the time we used the bathrooms there also. Our RV black tank has...Jump to full entry
Jun 21, 2017 - Hotter than Hates, it;s Summertime !!!
Whew, it's hot out. 100 degrees today and not much relief in sight until Sunday. - I'm so glad that our two A/C's can keep up with those kind of temps and as long as it doesn't get much more than what we got we'll be OK. It's the 120 degrees in Palm Desert that we could not have handled very well. I don't have any plans to stay over the summer at the Thousand Trails RV Park in Palm Desert unless we absolutely have to. We are sort of "outside people" and you just can't spend much time at all outside when it's 100 + degrees. - Another issue...Jump to full entry

We are finally at our summer destination house watching for friends of ours. Like I said in the title, it wasn't easy. Shortly after crossing the New Mexico border, I stopped to check our Air hitch in the back of the truck. When we arrived in Tucson I pulled the unlock lever on the hitch to disconnect the truck from the trailer and the trailer started sliding backwards and it fell on the bed of the truck and broke one of the airline fittings. NOT GOOD. Thank God we have a hauler body on our truck because if it were a pick up body the bed...Jump to full entry
Apr 28, 2009 - Ahhh!!! Northern New Mexico
We left Cochiti Lake about 9 AM and arrived at our destination before lunch. Actually it was a short drive and we took our time and when we got close to our destination I called David, our host, and he met us at the only landmark that we we could recognize, a mile marker along the roadside. We followed him down one road and up the other and across to the mesa top. I want to tell you that was one hard pull for the ole F550, up washboard gravel roads with a 20,000 fifth wheel behind. We made it but it was a chore and it was well worth it. The...Jump to full entry
