Time Flies

I'm finally caught up and motivated to sit down to catch you up on our travels. When last we spoke, we were in Winchester Bay, Oregon.... (Sept 27-Oct 2) From there we proceeded south along the Oregon coast to Brookings, OR. There is an Elks Lodge we had been to before and we figured this was a good place to catch up on chores and to go see some BIG trees. Having spent two weeks boondocking we had...

We were fine with staying in their dry-camp area. During our brief vi...

Playing Tourist in New Mexico, Part 1

Fort Bayard Officers Row, circa 1910

While staying at the Pancho Villa State Park in New Mexico, we spent the last 12 days relaxing, working a bit on the computers, and playing tourists. One day, we had a few road-runners chasing each other for hours. I think the female was going to eventually loose that battle. The state park has a nice, small museum explaining what happened in March 1916 with the raid by Mexican General "Pancho" Vi...
