Apr 1, 2011 - Moriarty, NM

We drove to Moriarty, NM so that we could visit with Art and Gail Falconer. They were our friends for years in Ramona before they moved to New Mexico. They live on a 10 acre piece of property. They raise chicken, goats, and have a bull. We got to spend 3 days with them. They were so gracious. Gail prepared breakfast and dinner each night and fed us in addition to her family. They have been foster home parents for years and ended up adopting most of them. Some of them are older now and still live with them. It was really great getting to...

Oct 8, 2008 - House sold, on to NM!

We closed on the sale of our straw bale house in Colorado and are headed to Moriarty, NM to pick up our new 2001 Excel 28rgo. First we needed a truck worthy of pulling it that didn't break our budget. Out west they call these Ranch Haulers or other places contractor trucks. We needed a truck that could haul 15,000 pounds safely, but needed financing. We would rather have had an HDT, but all that were for sale did not come with the opportunity for owner financing and we have limited time to get to the FL Keys to our winter Workamping jobs....

Sep 12, 2008 - Moriarty, NM - A Driving Day

Extremely heavy rain fell over night, accompanied by strong wind gusts. The combination woke us both up several times. We considered ourselves lucky; the higher elevations got some snow. By morning, it had mostly cleared. We were fairly ready to go and just had a few utilities to unhook and we were on our way by 8:30 a.m. It was a pretty easy drive east to Durango and then we headed south toward Albuquerque on Highway 550. This was a good four-lane road with pretty light traffic. We stopped a few times for a rest stop and a walk for...

Mar 28, 2008 - Morarity

OK this is the first stop of our 25th wedding anniversary. We decided to stop by Morarity at RV Sales to get a few things fixed under warranty. While they worked on the RV we explored the antique shop next to the dealership and then went to Walmart to pick up some groceries. That is where the "Weather Station" was purchased. It stayed with us for the next 6 years.

Nov 7, 2007 - And the Wild Story Continues

After having a great lunch at the Mine Shaft Tavern and finding there was still time for another side trip, we decided to drive to Moriarty to see Excel's Wild Cargo. We became aware of this toy hauler earlier in the year and after a posting in the irv2 forum stating there was one in the lot at RV Sales in Moriarty, we had to see it. Mind you, we have seen many of these in the past and strongly believed that they did not fit our fulltiming lifestyle. However, as satisfied customers, we were very curious about this new product in the Excel...

Oct 7, 2007 - Moriarty, New Mexico

We caravaned with Bert and Glenda to Moriarty, New Mexico on Oct. 7, where we spent three nights, killing time until we were scheduled to arrive at Fiesta Park in Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta. It's only about 30 miles from Moriarty to Albuquerque, so drove over in the "Toad" (for you non-RVers, that is term used to describe the vehicle you tow behind your motorhome)and spent one day shopping and sightseeing in Old Towne Albuquerque. We also checked everything out in and around Moriarty. That didn't take very long. Of coarse on Monday...
