Camping Day 8 — Roswell, NM

Don’t let the sunshine (April) fool you about the weather here and on the drive from Albuquerque to Roswell; we had not-so-good weather most of the day until within a couple dozen miles of Roswell. We started out in the snow and drove through fog, sleet and gusty crosswinds along the route. We had a few light showers later in the trip along US 285 enroute to where we are now.

At any rate, we’re here and settled in for the night. We will be headed to Lubbock, Texas in the morning. We will be there for a couple of days as we continue to enjoy the trip to our eventual campsite where we are hoping for clear skies to enjoy the total solar eclipse.

Easter Sunday 2024

We’re camped in Albuquerque on this Easter Sunday. The dogs, Cabela and Tucker are with us relaxing in the RV. We will be here overnight and then headed out to Roswell, NM, tomorrow.

Our Easter dinner later today, will be Ham Steaks with Veggies. The Potted Easter Lily, below, is with us here in the RV. Click on the image to enlarge.

May this day find all the people of the world rejoicing in the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen!

Camping Day 6 — Albuquerque, NM

We arrived here at the American RV Resort which was only a short (less than 2 hours) drive over from Gallup. The road on I-40 was rough in many places and there were steady winds blowing laterally at 20 with gusts to 35 or so. Verna took this photo of a 20 knot windsock along I-40 fully inflated.

Despite all that, we’re camped at a familiar old RV Park, the same one we were at during last October’s Annular Eclipse.

Camping Day 5 — Gallup, NM

We are in Gallup tonight where the weather is very windy and cool (WSW@20G35 61°F). We are here on old Route 66, but not planning to do any sightseeing while camping.

We have a much better internet connection today. Still, this will be a short blog. We’re here for one night and will be spending Easter in Albuquerque. After that, we continue wandering down to Waco, TX, where we hope to have clear skies for the eclipse.

We will likely post again tomorrow when in Albuquerque.

Camping Day 3 – Monument Valley

We have a crappy internet connection so this will be short.

We’re in Monument Valley for a couple of days. We had an uneventful drive from Flagstaff and got here in time to check into the RV campground and get all hooked up to the utilities.

Stay tuned for more in a couple of days.

Camping Day 1 – Flagstaff, AZ

Verna snapped this photo of the San Francisco Peaks just north of Flagstaff, AZ as we approached along I-17 today. We made good time, had light traffic and are now camped at the Flagstaff KOA. After getting settled in, it started to snow lightly. Verna also took the photo (below) looking out the RV door at a nearby tree as the snow fell. Click on either image to enlarge.
