Unser Racing Museum – Albuquerque, New Mexico (GA104)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’ll depart here July 5th.

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

 

 

In 2011-2013, Mary and I did a 682 day, 12,679 miles in the motorhome and 8,000 miles in the Bronco, circumnavigation of the United States, which I called The Great Adventure. I called it so because other than my oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation in June in Connecticut, I didn’t know where we would be going or when we would be there!

 

 

So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

 

 

 

This entry was posted May 8, 2012…

 

 

 

 

The motorhome is still parked at VFW Post #401 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

 

 

The name of Unser has been associated with motor racing for four generations. The Unser family has lived in the Albuquerque area for a long time and yesterday we spent an enjoyable two hours and visited their museum. Here’s their official website…

The museum does an excellent job telling of their years and victories in all aspects of motor racing. The docent spent a lot of time with us telling us many details of the Unser family story. Even if you are not a racing fan, you will still  enjoy this museum.

RAISING A TEPEE.

American Indians built tepees big enough to shelter a family in winter or summer. Old movie westerns showed tepees that were open structures with a flap over the entrance. In the movies a tall person had to stoop a bit to enter and maybe four people could fit inside seated around a fire. I was privileged to watch Harvey White Bear and his wife Cathy put up this authentic teepee at Sky Hawk Ranch in Murphys.

The poles are 25 feet long and each one is a birch tree. Over several hundred years, the nomadic plains Indians learned to build a comfortable, practical dwelling  that served them well through summer and winter. Harvey walks a rope around and around the structure.  Each set of poles is tied the required six times.

The people took down their dwellings about every six months as they followed the herds of buffalo, their main source of food and materials. Precise ways, tried and true, are followed to make the job faster and easier to pick up and move on as a group.

Harvey spreads the canvas centered on one pole. He secures it at the required distance from the top so it won’t slip when it is raised. It is a ritual. He loves staying in touch with his heritage by erecting this tepee according to the custom of his forefathers. “I don’t get much practice,” he said. “I was very happy the Clan asked me to put it up.” Harvey belongs to the Bear Clan centered in Idaho. He lives in Wallace and is Cherokee, raised by Comanche with Miwuk cousins. There is another tepee like this one erected near Laytonville by the Owl Clan.

Cathy and “Grandmother Jan” loosely fold the canvas over the pole. Elder women and men are called “grandfather” and “grandmother.” They are treated with special respect. It is an honor to be a grandmother or grandfather who council the young, and teach them the accumulated wisdom and  history of the tribe through the years.

Cathy picks  up the heavy end so Harvey can get a rope under the heavy mass of wood and canvas. He ties it in two places.

Cindy holds the heavy end, Harvey takes the great weight in the middle and Jan balances with the top of the pole. Cindy will place the end on the ground and keep her foot wedged against it while Harvey and Jan raise it up to the top.

That plan didn’t work. It was too heavy to get to the top with just three people. And, it also hit some tree branches before it could be placed. Grandmother Jan suggested seating it narrow end first and avoid the branches.

Grandmother Jan got reinforcements by waking up a night working neighbor, Rob. Harvey climbed up a ladder and guided it into the right slot.

From the inside, the poles are pushed out as far as they will go pushing into the canvas and tightening it.

Harvey laces up the door which must face East.

The last two poles are inserted into leather cones that have been sewn into the canvas. This is the air conditioning and draft mechanism for the fire. They can be positioned to take advantage of the wind. They vent the smoke and can be flipped to the other side of the tepee if needed.

The last task is to stake the tent to the ground. Native Americans use metal stakes and canvas and every modern tool they can to make the job easier. Their ancestors had fewer choices. Grandfather John, joined us late in the process.

It took about three hours to raise the tepee. In summer, the air flows up from the bottom and out the top. The air conditioning.

During winter, another canvas is attached to the inside covering the draft. It can be rolled up and down as needed. This tepee will not be used as a dwelling, so the inside cover is not placed. Harvey is active with the boy scouts to teach his particular skills. But, he doesn’t get many opportunities to put up a grand tepee. The ceremony to bless the dwelling with a gathering of the clan will depend on the health of Grandmother Tanya, who is ill and is the head of the Clan. The Clan is of mixed tribes who have joined together for their own preservation.  Harvey mentioned that there were about 9,000 different Tribes in North America heavily populated with estimates close to a billion people. Now only 500 distinct tribes exist, most on the west coast. Their combined population is 5,295,700.  They’ve been decimated by European diseases, Indian Removal Acts, Broken Treaties, Indoctrination, Re-education, Confinement to Reservation life and killing off the buffalo. The loss of dignity, their oral history, art, respect, hope, language and pervasive alcoholism threatens the thin chain of life for many. Another stage of American imperialism and shame. Europeans are a patriarchal society and could never understand or respect a matriarchal society.

The tide is turning but it is still an uphill battle. I hope to be invited to the up-coming ceremony.

A Somewhat Fix To One Of My Small Dilemmas…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort along the bank of the Skykomish River in Monroe, Washington. I’ll depart here July 5th.

 

 

I’m a fortunate guy…because I lead an essentially stress-free lifestyle. That’s not to say that I do not have an occasional dilemma. One of these occasional dilemmas is ordering items online.

 

When you travel like I do, that can become a small problem. Some websites identify the shipping method, so for me no problem. Shipping USPS, I’ll give you a General Delivery address to a local post office. Shipping ground, no problem because I can give you the street, city, state and site number of my current motorhome location.

 

However, when I order from Amazon which I do quite a bit, it becomes a small dilemma. Because you have to give Amazon a shipping address prior to completing your order. Once Amazon has your completed order, at the time of packaging is when they decide the method of shipping. How can I give Amazon a shipping address if I do not know the shipping method? A small dilemma for me!

 

I recently joined Amazon Prime for a 30 day free trial. I’m liking it really good so far. The two-day shipping is really nice. Another benefit of Prime is watching free movies on Amazon Video. I’ve watched five movies so far and they play just great with no “loading” messages that I sometimes get on YouTube.

 

Another neat feature of Prime is that you can have items shipped to a local Amazon Locker to pickup at your convenience. If you do not pick up the item in five days, it’s returned to Amazon and you get a full refund.

 

I had my first experience with an Amazon Locker yesterday and it worked great. I recently places two different orders with Amazon a day apart. You get shipping notices both by email and cell phone.

 

When the item has been put in the locker, you get a message with a six-digit access code.

 

Here are the photos from yesterday’s experience…

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

My current local Amazon Locker is located next to Safeway in Monroe, six miles away…

 

 

 

 

You put in the access code on a touch screen that’s a little hard to see when the sun is shining on it…

 

 

 

 

And presto!, a locker door pops open…

 

 

 

Since I had two different orders, I had a second code and presto!, that door popped open…

 

Pretty neat with only a couple of downsides. Instead of a separate trip to pick up the item (depends on how badly you want the item), wait until you have another reason to go to town like grocery shopping. This location if fairly convenient being only six miles away. Some times I can be 10-20 miles from the nearest town.

 

In one box was my new laptop air cooler. Heat is the enemy of electronics. This device reduces the core temperatures 2-5 degrees, depending on the task being performed by the computer. At only $20, every little bit helps…

 

 

 

 

Here’s a side view of it in operation…

 

 

 

 

And a rear view also showing my new 1tb hard drive which I could not get to work. If it doesn’t start working today…back it goes…

 

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

 Yesterday was mostly sunny and 74 degrees. Forecast for today is partly sunny and 84 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Yesterday Was Kind Of A Disappointing One… (GA103)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.

So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

 

 

 

This entry was posted May 7, 2012…

 

 

 

 

for me as far as being a tourist in Albuquerque, New Mexico is concerned.

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The motorhome is still parked at the VFW Post #401 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

 

 

We took the Bronco and headed out. First stop was at the National Hispanic Cultural Center where the previous evening we saw a very entertaining Nocho de Oro…Night of Gold performance. Yesterday morning’s visit to their Art Museum was to me very disappointing. First of all, no photography was allowed and secondly there wasn’t anything there worth taking a picture of. Have I finally seen too many Hispanic artifacts?

 

 

Second visit was to their Mundos De Mestizaje: A vision of History through Fresco by Francisco Vigil. According to their brochure…

 

 

He spent close to a decade on this monumental 4,000 square foot work. Over 3,000 years of Hispanic history are depicted  in the broadest sense, from Europe to Mesoamerica and into the American southwest, illustrating the complexities and diversity of the Hispanic experience.

 

 

I realize that I am not very sophisticated when it comes to Art and I found his work almost too complicated to enjoy. Also you have to look straight up over your head to see his work…within about 15 seconds I had a sore neck! There are no windows or lights in the building…the only illumination inside comes from a rather small opening in the ceiling and even with a brilliant sunny day…the lighting was poor. Once again…no photography allowed. Boo on them! Here’s their website link to this Fresco…
http://www.nationalhispaniccenter.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=37&Itemid=139

 

 

 

 

 

Then it was on to Old Town. The church and plaza both were rather uninspiring…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The only other thing(s) there are 150 gift stores and galleries…get the picture? This place screams TOURIST! However one shop had some interesting hot sauces…

 

 

They actually had Marie Sharp’s from Belize which both Mary and I really like…at somewhat exorbitant prices. We bought two bottles anyways.

 

 

 

 

 

This place is now a restaurant and art gallery…get the picture???

 

 

We decided to try to salvage the day by driving along the old (pre-1937) Route 66 looking for old buildings. Nope…nothing of any significance to be found.

 

 

Oh well…if every day I wrote up stunning reports of our travels…you wouldn’t believe me any more. One thing you can be sure of…is when you read one of my Blog entries…you are getting the truth! At least in my humble opinion.

 

 

Like the old saying…”Some days are diamonds and some days are dust”…fortunately for us about 99 out of 100 days are diamonds!

HOSPITAL AGGRAVATION.

I believe I’m reasonably patient. I know about waiting in line. A necessity of life.

I took my lab form to the hospital lab, busy, busy, busy, to accommodate my housemate who needed an endoscopy. I figured I’d get my blood test while she was under the anesthesia. Then have lunch at the cafeteria before heading to  Lowe’s to buy some paint.

Her procedure was over before I got out of the lunch room. My registration was one big snafu. (Someday I’ll tell you what snafu means.)

But we can rise above such irritations by consulting the sages.

Here then, a French Proverb: “Write your injuries in sand, kindnesses in marble.” 

Now that is something worth embracing.

“Humor is an affirmation of dignity, a declaration of man’s superiority to all that befalls him.”   Romain Gary

Hmmm! I wonder if women are exempt from that advice? Naw! Just kidding. It reminds me when reading the bible with my high school boyfriend, he would add after all those manly quotes, “That means generic man, man or woman.”  I might be a bit cynical, here.

Well, I ran across this Doctor’s Office scenario by Ron Dentinger from Dodgeville, Wisconsin:

“My friend called his doctor’s office for an appointment and was told, “‘I’m sorry sir, we cannot fit you in for at least six weeks.”

“I could be dead by then!”

“No problem, if your wife let’s us know, we’ll cancel the appointment.”

Aha!  That made me laugh. I guess I didn’t fail the sages after all.  Thanks to  Ron.

Downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico (GA102)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

This entry was posted May 6, 2012…

 

 

 

 

 

The motorhome is still parked at the VFW Post #401 here in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

 

 

Since it was a weekend, we decided to explore downtown Albuquerque. We took the Bronco and parked it on Central Avenue which is also the famous Route 66…

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First off, Mary wanted to see the Kimo Theater which opened in 1927…

 

 

The name Kimo is actually a combination of two Tewa Indian words literally translated as “mountain lion”, but more liberally as”King of its Kind“. A recent beautiful restoration was completed in 2000 and it is now on the National Register of Historical Places. You can read all about the Kimo Theater by clicking this link…
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KiMo_Theater

 

 

 

 

 

The theater didn’t open until 11:00 AM, so we explored the outside…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mary wanted to buy some Indian jewelry, so we went one-half block to Skip Maisel’s store….

 

 

 

 

 

This place has quite the collection of Native American items. You can read all about this place by clicking this link…
http://skip-maisels.com/

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then back to the Kimo to see the interior…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then back outside to see some of the murals on the sides of buildings…

Then, because it was Cinco de Mayo, in the evening we went to the Spanish Heritage Center to see a performance of Nocho de Oro…Night of Gold. In brief, it was a 2.5 hour presentation of the Native American, Spanish and Mexican history of New Mexico in song, music and dance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To read about the superb performance that we saw, click this link…
http://www.itsatrip.org/events/details/cinco-de-mayo-celebration-noche-de-oro-19309/

 

 

With lots of moving by the performers and dim lighting…I decided to take the night off from doing photography and enjoy the performance…which was great!

 

 

 

 

 

I did however take a photo of the lobby during intermission…

 

 

 

 

 

and a photo of the performers taking their final bows…

 

 

 

 

 

and a photo of the cover of the program…

 

 

All in all, a full day…and here we go once again…today.
