Petrified Forest National Park, AZ

Petrified Forest National Park, AZ
We left Bluewater Lake State Park a couple days ago, but it wasn't without issues. Due to the rain, snow and freezing weather, we had some issues getting out: I forgot to preheat the diesel engine, so it didn't want to start. It was in the mid 20's overnight.Due to the cold and playing the radio all week, the motorhome starting battery was very low and went dead almost immediately. The trickle cha...

Playing Tourists in New Mexico, Part 3

Caballo State Park, NM
After leaving Elephant Butte State Park, we headed to the Volunteer Travel Campsites (32.3774, -106.4913) located on the White Sands Missile Range (Army Post). This is a small, 8-site RV Park located on the main portion of the Army post. It's very quiet here, with wonderful views of the Organ Mountains. A pretty good deal for only $10 a night with full hook-ups. It's located between Las Cruces and...

September 2005 Travel Log

We could sleep in and do what we wanted, ...

Playing Tourists in New Mexico, Part 5

El Malpais National Munument, NM
Last Monday, March 25th, we decided to move up north to Bluewater Lake State Park. We knew it was a risk with the weather, but we were looking for new scenery and new adventures. This State Park only has 14 sites with electric, but another 130+ sites without electric. It was a gamble that paid off. Being early-season, the state park was almost empty. There were only a few electric sites taken...

November 2005 Travel Log

11/30/05: Mary Esther, FL: The other day, we had a "Boomer" fix! Bob and Nancy Colbert are friends we've met through the Escapee Boomers group. They noticed we were in Florida and they were passing this way. We met them for Brunch the other day and caught up on what we've each been doing. Seems they won't be going to Quartzsite this winter either. It's always great meeting old and new friends on t...
