South Fork, Colorado. Home for the next two months!

We escaped Albuquerque Friday afternoon about 2pm and headed north pulling 16,500 pounds of home behind us. Later that evening, after a nice hike around Ojo Caliente hot springs, we came to a very interesting observation. There was nowhere else we would rather be at that moment. That led to a conversation about how many times since we have had the RV were we where we wanted to be with no thought or wish to be somewhere else? The answer was about 95% of the time. This was a beautiful thing to ponder and only possible as the tension and stress of the city of Albuquerque faded away. Physically feeling the difference allowed us to truly appreciate it a lot! People in that town are used to having their cars stolen while they are in the store, at home, or anywhere else. I walked into a hardware store in a […]

Maps Are Cool!

Here I sit in the warm August afternoon sun at Blue Mesa Alpaca Farm working on where to go next. We have about a week until ordered parts get into Albuquerque for some projects in the RV, so I was playing with google maps and looking at distances etc. Then I started looking at where we have been. Google is so helpful with this! I think we pulled out of the park in Logan headed towards Angel Fire about two weeks ago or something. Next we head back up through Santa Fe, then over to Los Alamos and up into the Carson National Forest. We should find some cool places to hang out while we wait for parts!

Travelling Update – We make it to the Rocky Mountains!

Although I know that you might like the written word more than this video – it is a lot of work. Clicking record or a camera shutter on a phone or iPad is easy! Editing? A whole ‘nother story! This video took me 5 hours to edit and publish. So we write short updates to facebook because it is easy and try to get a video out when we can. We hope you enjoy the story! Miami and Shelly – in Albuquerque NM Aug 2017

2-2-2 A Loose Rule for Traveling in an RV

This is the last day of an RV “Rally” at the Elkhart 4H Fairgrounds in Goshen, Indiana.  Today is day four. We will be pulling out in the morning and driving all of 35 miles to a local winery who allows RVs to stay overnight. The general rule for travel is 2-2-2. That means: drive no more than 200 miles, get into your camp before 2PM and stay 2 days. We are pretty good at the first two, but the staying two days is hard if you are bored! Sometimes you want to stay longer when commitments or cost dictate otherwise. We are finding this life to be different than boating, and enjoyable. It is much, much easier in many ways with a corresponding increase in cost.  We are able to cover a lot more ground, and it is easy enough to drop off the path to explore if desired […]
