El Vado State Park – New Mexico Day 2 (GA209)

 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 Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. I expect to depart here November 12th. While here I’m doing a thorough cleaning of the motorhome interior.

 

 

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 August 18, 2012…

 

 

The motorhome is currently parked at El Vado State Park about 30 miles south of Chama, New Mexico.

 

 

It’s nice and quiet here. Very peaceful.

 

 

Here are some photos I took yesterday…

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

I saw two things yesterday morning I haven’t seen in a long while.

 

 

 

 

 

First, black tail deer 10 feet in front of the motorhome windshield. This happened really fast, they were moving  and it was still quite dark, hence the poor quality photos…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and also FOG…at 6:30  AM…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then at 8:30 AM…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then the fog all gone at 10:30 AM…

While I’m recovering, Mary remains at her home in California tending to doctor’s appointments, her rentals and other miscellaneous business.

 

 

Enjoying beautiful lakes in early morning is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

El Vado State Park – New Mexico Day 1 (GA208)

 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 Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. I expect to depart here November 12th. While here I’m doing a thorough cleaning of the motorhome interior.

 

 

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 August 18, 2012…

 

Yesterday I moved the motorhome the about 30 miles from Heron Lake State Park to El Vado State Park about 30 miles south of Chama, New Mexico.

 

 

When you buy a New Mexico annual state park camping permit, it is subject to the following provisions: you may stay in a park for three weeks, if you desire to return to the same park you must leave for six days before you can return. I understand and accepted those provisions when I bought the pass.

 

 

If you are new to this Blog, you may not know that I was substantially injured in a tragic accident on May 27th and have been in a recovery mode since that time. If you are not familiar with the accident you may view it by clicking this link… http://wp.me/pDCku-4Eh

 

To understand the full scope of the accident you will need to also view the several subsequent Blog entries.

 

 

Needing to recover, shortly after the accident, I retreated to the New Mexico State Park system to recover from my injuries and reach a higher elevation to escape the oppressive heat. I ended up at Heron Lake State Park. Shortly after my arrival, I explained my predicament to the folks in charge there and because they are compassionate people, they allowed me to stay beyond the three-week period. In my condition I really ought not to be driving the motorhome.

 

 

Anyways, to make a long story short, apparently a  heartless bureaucrat in the New Mexico State Park system happened to see my Blog entries and I was told I had to leave the Heron lake Park for the six-day period. Hence the move to El Vado State Park. The below Google Earth image shows the relative locations involved. The upper right X was my location at Heron Lake. The lower left X indicates my current location at El Vado Lake State Park. The way the crow files there is only 5.5 miles between the two campgrounds, but because of the local land configurations, one must go back to Highway 64 before heading for El Vado Sate Park making the driving distance between the two locations about 30 miles…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Because it is further out in the toolies, EL Vado State Park is not as busy as Heron Lake State Park.

 

 

Here are some photos I took upon my arrival yesterday…

This is the view from the dinette window…

 

 

 

 

 

My camping spot…

 

 

 

 

 

This location allows me to leave the Bronco attached…

 

 

 

 

 

An afternoon thunderstorm approaching…

 

 

 

 

 

The sun sets behind this mountain so there will be no beautiful sunset photos from this location like there is at Heron Lake State Park…

The motorhome is still parked at Heron Lake State Park about 20 miles south of Chama, New Mexico while I am recovering from my May 27th accident. To read about my recovery status, click this link… https://otrwjam.wordpress.com/recovery-status-page/

 

 

While I’m recovering, Mary remains at her home in California tending to doctor’s appointments, her rentals and other miscellaneous business.

 

 

I’ve been here for several weeks now and have photographed everything worth seeing within a 30 mile radius. I’m still not feeling that well that I care to drive lots of miles.

 

 

One thing I do not seem to run out of is more beautiful sunsets…

Today I’m going to interrupt my sunset photos presentation and use a grandfather’s prerogative…bragging rights!

 

 

Last Saturday my grandson Eric became 15 years old. He told me yesterday during a phone call that he had also played in a baseball tournament last weekend that included 10 teams with 12 players each, So that meant there were 120 aspiring baseball players in the tournament. Eric aspires to become the catcher for the New York Mets!

 

 

I do not know who the judges were, but Eric told me the decision was unanimous…HE WAS AWARDED THE MOST VALUABLE PLAYER PLAQUE! That means that out of 120 players, he was voted the best!

 

 

WAY TO GO, ERIC!

 

 

Also, here are some photos that I took when I was last in southeastern Connecticut when I last visited there in 2010 when he was 13 years old. I planning to be there in 2013…
