Sep 25, 2014 - Rio Rancho, NM

RIO RANCHO, NM—9/25-9/28. Had a good trip over—amazed at how much ground the White Sands Missile Range covers. Arrived to find Linda and Ron here and settled in—they got out of Carlsbad OK. They were able to go through the caverns which were reopened the day the morning of the day they left. Glad they got to do that since that was the sole reason they had gone there and had to endure the weather. We caught up on our last few days, good to be back with them and planned our next few days of sightseeing. We will be in Albuquerque with an...

Oct 8, 2011 - Rio Rancho, NM – Stagecoach Stop RV Park

It was a short 33 miles from Cochiti Lake to the campground on the northern edge of Rio Rancho which is about 10 miles North of Albuquerque. The route covered much of the same territory we had already driven when visiting Jemez Springs so there aren't any travel pictures this time. We are staying at the Stagecoach Stop RV Park and have 50 amp full hookups with good Verizon coverage and a clear shot to the satellite once I maneuvered the Mothership a little. After getting set up, we headed to the Petroglyph National Monument to have a look...

Oct 7, 2010 - Do You Know the Way to Santa Fe!

OK, guys I know it is "Way to San Jose" but I liked the sound. We arrived at Susie's on Tuesday night. What a beautiful location and house. Within minutes of meeting Susie, like when I met Marilyn, I felt I had known her for years. Susie lives in Rio Rancho just outside of Albuquerque. On Weds we went up to Santa Fe and had a blast going through Canyon Road galleries and shops. Today we went to Old town in Albuquerque. Oh to be rich!!! Tried to take pictures of the balloons but needed both you and your camera, Eric!! so forgive our...

Sep 18, 2010 - Just a Kick Back Day

We found out that the excitement at WalMart yesterday was over a mysterious object that was found under a car in the parking lot. Evidently, it was discovered to be nothing serious, but they had to wait for the bomb squad to complete their investigation. -- We did go to WalMart for our weekly shopping this morning without incident. I bought the kids a new toy. I try to keep them entertained with new games and toys since they are confined to such a small space. Rocky especially seems to need more entertainment and exercise and I don't want...

Pretty Damn Nice!

Sep 17, 2010 - Cuba?

One of the things we like best about our lifestyle is the option to change our travel plans any time. We have long been planning our trip this summer with the intention of ending up in New Mexico before moving down into Texas for the winter. But we were not sure what to do in New Mexico other than visit relatives in Albuquerque, visit Roswell and see an alien, and go to Carlsbad Caverns. I have done some investigating and found there are many ruins but frankly, we have seen a lot of ruins this summer. The Chaco Culture National Historical...

May 29, 2010 - I hope this all comes together!

What is happening? I am getting ready for a summer adventure and I feel a bit under the weather. I do feel that I am getting better but I am sure feeling loopy with all of this cold medicine in me. Ohhhhh, my. I am still very excited. Only 27 hours now until I take off! I hope I don't forget anything.

Jul 13, 2009 - Water, Water Everywhere (but NOT for us)

Yesterday afternoon the Tetilla Peak Campground was out of water. Something to do with the pump not filling the storage tanks. No that's a real bummer. We only carry a very small amount of water in our 100 gallon tank and of course we have our drinking water too. But we were in need of clean cloths and Judy wanted to do the wash. OK, let's see. We have 3 doctor appointments in Rio Rancho and Albuquerque this week,why don't we just move south to Stagecoach Stop RV Resort for the week. Robin, our camp host graciously refunded our week stay...

Jul 17, 2008 - "YIPEE" Back in Rio Rancho at Stagecoach Stop RV Pk

Well we are sure glad to be back in the town that we lived in for 10 years before giving up our home here and going full-time in the RV. Familer surrounding's are a "good thing" for Bob and I as we did like Rio Rancho while living here. We shall be close to it all, our UPS mailbox store along with drug, pet, water, and other stores that we are used to frequenting. We are also close to some of our favorite places to eat Mexican food. No place has better red or green chili than New Mexico. We shall be able to visit with our friends that we...

Oct 7, 2007 - Dinner at the High Finance Restaurant on Sandia Peak

Well it has been almost a month since I have updated and I apologize for being so slow, but we have been traveling some, and spending countless hours chasing down things we need to know about buying land in SE Arizona. Our trip up the tram to Sandia Peak for dinner at the High Finance Restaurant was an enjoyable, but sort of cold happening. Our reservations were for seven thirty p.m. and we arrived at the tram about five thirty, an hour ahead of the time they said we should be there. The line for tickets was down the stairs from the ticket...

Jul 16, 2006 - New Mexico

We had a great time in New Mexico, such a beautiful state. Our first stop was at Elephant Butte near Truth or Consequences. We took two day trips, the first sent us west to the old towns of Winston and Chloride, small towns with big characters. We continued West of the Continental Divide for the first time up to around 7700 feet which is always great to do when it was 105 in the valley, it was at least 20 degree cooler near 8000 ft. It rained in the area, we saw the sheets or verga, but never quite caught up with it. Only a few drops that...
