East or West?

East or West?

Location:  Leaving Houston, TX and heading to Arizona Days 45-46 After a lot of debating, looking at the weather, trying to decide where we should go, we decided to reverse our trail a little bit and head back to southern Arizona.  We miss the mountains and want to be in a warmer climate.  The south eastern US and Central are all being hit with cold fronts, tornadoes and pouring rain.  I think we’ll skip that area for now.  On to Arizona!…

Location:  Boerne (Pronounced Bernie), TX – Just outside of San Antonio Day 41 Today we went to the San Antonio Riverwalk.  The Riverwalk is amazing!  The river is in downtown San Antonio and you can walk a few miles of the river on both sides.  There are shops and restaurants all along the way.  We ate dinner right on the river and then took one of the river tours.  Well worth the money!  The tour guide knew a ton about the…

San Antonio – We made it!

San Antonio – We made it!

Location:  Boerne (Pronounced Bernie), TX – Just outside of San Antonio Days 37 – 38 We made it to San Antonio!  Well, to Boerne (pronounced Bernie) at least.  Boerne is about 20 minutes north of San Antonio along I-10.  We stayed at the Alamo Fiesta RV Park.  It is pretty large (about 200 spots).  Unfortunately, we didn’t get one with shade, but it is a nice place to stay for a little bit.  It was incredible to see/feel the difference with…

Day 36: Lubbock, TX and can we leave?

Location:  Lubbock, TX Day 36 Today started out VERY early.  We lost an hour by coming into Texas and so we went to bed fairly late.  Then, we had a CRAZY thunderstorm come through at 5 AM.  We only had a few lightning strikes and thunder, but the rain was pouring!  Luckily, that only lasted an hour and it was all stopped by the time we left at 7 to take Bessie in to the shop. We dropped Bessie off…

Day 34: Leaving Farmington, NM and heading to Albuquerque, NM

Location:  Farmington, NM heading to Albuquerque, NM Day 34 We spent the weekend in Farmington, NM “recovering” from the approx. 500 miles we drove!  Driving a motorhome can be exhausting, especially when it is windy!  That’s what happened on the way to Albuquerque.  WIND!  It took us about an hour longer then expected because of all the slowdown and stopping that we had to do. We stayed at the Mom and Pop RV Park in Farmington.  It is a small…
