The Week in Review

Wednesday, 10/26 I had my six month follow-up appointment with my doctor. It was a quick and semi-painless appointment.   I’m down 36 pounds,  the nurse did a blood draw (my April blood work was good), got a flu shot.  Unfortunately, Dr. Shaw figured out that I turned 50 in March and hit me up for a … Continue reading »

Moving Day: Ft. Stockton, TX To San Antonio, TX

We took the day off yesterday and didn’t do much of anything other than laundry.  In the early evening, we did go over to the pool for a quick dip once the sun had set some and it wasn’t crazy hot as there was no shade over the pool.  We had a nice time just … Continue reading »

Moving Day: Carlsbad, NM To Ft. Stockton, TX

Sunday, October 23 With another fairly short (164 miles) journey today we didn’t pull out of our site until 10:40 am so that we had time to dump our tanks and hit the road by 11:00 am.  We made sure to do our pull/tug test and check our lights before leaving the site….might seem redundant…but … Continue reading »

Carlsbad Caverns

Moving Day: Alamogordo, NM to Carlsbad, NM

Friday, October 21 We left the Holloman Air Force Base FamCamp about 10:00 am this morning, which has pretty much become our standard departure time for travel days.  We adjust it according to how many miles we plan to travel on any given day though. We opted to drive a little further route going around … Continue reading »

Space, Pistachio’s & Cloudcroft

We started the day by visiting the New Mexico Space History Museum.  The building is situated above Alamogordo on a hill where it’s easy to see several of the local sights. Before going inside, we visited the grave of, Ham the Astrochimp.  Ham was the first monkey in space back in 1961 when he was strapped … Continue reading »

White Sands & Rizo’s

I had a conference call at 8:30 am so we stuck around home until after the call wrapped up and then headed out for some sight-seeing.  There could be a new opportunity for me around the corner…we’ll just have to see how things play out. We headed out about 10:15 and headed west on US … Continue reading »

Moving Day: Willcox, AZ To Alamogordo, NM

It was nice to have a day off…no driving, no sight-seeing…just rest.  I worked a small jigsaw puzzle and started painting Zoe’s stool and then made a new Instant Pot recipe for dinner, Cheesy Sausage Pasta, which turned out pretty good except that I added a bit too much chicken base which made it a bit … Continue reading »

Moving Day: Quartzsite, AZ To Willcox, AZ

We decided to get an earlier than normal start as we had over 300 miles to drive and we wanted to get away from the 100 degree heat as soon as possible! The forecast in Willcox looks much better over the next couple of days than it does in Quartzsite…high in the mid 80s and lows … Continue reading »

Roadside America Day….Again!

Quartzsite seems to be a Mecca for many RVers.  Years ago nearly 2 million people (many of them RVers) would flock to Quartzsite for the winter months.  We’ve been told that that number has dwindled to a mere quarter of a million in recent years. There are lots of rock/gem shows and swap meets in … Continue reading »
