Elephant Butte State Park – New Mexico (GA83)

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’m scheduled to leave here May 26th.

 

 

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 April 17, 2012…

 

 

 

A few days back I wrote about the Elephant Butte Dam…
http://wp.me/pDCku-4by

 

 

Which created Elephant Butte Lake…
http://wp.me/pDCku-4c7

 

 

Along the west side of the lake…Elephant Butte State Park, over about ten miles, has about a dozen campgrounds…most of them are primitive with no utilities.

 

 

Yesterday I moved the motorhome from the Moose Lodge in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico the about five miles to the State Park. I’ll spend only one night. I came to primarily dump my waste tanks, fill my fresh water tank and take a nice long hot shower. After last Saturday’s wind/dust storm I also cleaned the window glass inside and out as well as the solar panels on the motorhome roof.

 

 

I’m parked in what I consider the best view site in the state park. I’m situated on an overlook near the park entrance…about 300 feet elevation about the lake.

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the view through the dinette window…

 

 

 

 

 

Another view…

 

 

 

 

 

And a panorama view…

 

 

 

 

 

Then three Google Earth views…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are about six overlook sites…each with a three-sided protective shelter…

 

 

 

 

 

that have a metal picnic table inside…

 

 

 

 

 

that gives a great view of the lake…

 

 

 

 

 

People park their RV’s right along the lake shore so they can pull their watercraft onshore nearby their rigs…

 

 

When I scouted out this park Easter weekend there were several hundred RV’s parked along the lake shore. The roadways down to there are not well marked…so much so that I got the Bronco into some loose sand and had to put it into 4 wheel drive to get moving again. A local told me that the local tow truck drivers do a lively business retrieving stuck vehicles. They’re not going to get my business…I’m staying on solid ground up on the overlook!

 

 

A lovely sunny day of 70 degrees with a gentle breeze made it a delightful stay.

 

 

Here’s the state park’s official website link…

Today I’ll head out and start wandering north towards Albuquerque where I’m hopefully going to meet up Mary in about 10 days.

Today Is Armed Forces Day…

ARMED FORCES DAY

 Saturday, May 20, 2017

 

 

President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.

 

On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days.

 

 

The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.

From Wikipedia…

In the United States, Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May. It falls near the end of Armed Forces Week, which begins on the second Saturday of May and ends on the third Sunday of May (the fourth if the month begins on a Sunday, as in 2016).[4]

First observed on 20 May 1950, the day was created on 31 August 1949, to honor Americans serving in the five U.S. military branches – the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard – following the consolidation of the military services in the U.S. Department of Defense. It was intended to replace the separate Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Days, but the separate days are still observed, especially within the respective services.[5]

The first Armed Forces Day was celebrated by parades, open houses, receptions and air shows. The United States’ longest continuously running Armed Forces Day Parade is held in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2016, Chattanooga celebrated the 67th year of the Armed Forces Day Parade, which also began in 1950.[46]

Because of their unique training schedules, National Guard and Reserve units may celebrate Armed Forces Day/Week over any period in the month of May.

A Democrat’s RV… (GA82)

This entry was posted April 16, 2012…

 

 

Shortly after my arrival here in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico…I took my towed Ford Bronco II over to Elephant Butte State Park about five miles distant to checkout the four campgrounds there. I’ll be moving the motorhome there this morning and I wanted to get to know the lay of the land before I go there as the online maps are very confusing.

 

 

As I was driving through the campgrounds…I noticed this Democrat’s RV. I had never seen one before and I thought I’d share it with you…

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kind of unique…isn’t it? I wonder what a Republican’s RV looks like?

 

 

In other news…

This morning I will depart Moose Lodge 2050 after an 11 day visit. I chose to stay here rather than drive in daily from the state park. It’s nice to enjoy good food and drink with the locals. Thank you Moose Lodge #2050 for your hospitality!

 

 

In addition to visiting local attractions while here…I’ve also been busy researching my upcoming approach to Albuquerque. The locals here tell me it’s a city of about 900,000 people and everyone drives like they are crazy.

 

 

 

 

 

Whenever I’m approaching a large city…which I’ve not been to before and don’t know my way around…I use Google Earth to learn about the area. In this first Google Earth Image you can see that I’ll be traveling…more or less…along side of the Rio Grande River towards Albuquerque about 150 miles distant…

 

 

 

 

 

The pins identify pre-planned potential stops. The below Google Earth concentrates on the southeast area of Albuquerque…where I expect to spend the better portion of my time while there. The APT pin marks the location of the airport where I’ll meet Mary hopefully in about ten days…

 

 

Since this is my first visit to Albuquerque…I’m planning to enter the city on next Sunday morning when traffic should be the lightest. It sure makes traveling a lot easier having Google Earth and The Internet for researching areas prior to arrival.

Rocking And Rolling All Day Long… (GA81)

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

This entry was posted April 15, 2012…

 

 

 

I’m still parked at the Moose Lodge in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico where yesterday’s weather forecast was for sunny and very windy. It did not disappoint!

 

 

The wind actually came up Friday afternoon…got up to a steady 25-35 miles per hour during the night. As daylight came on the velocity increased to a steady 45-55 miles per hour with MANY frequent gusts in excess of 70 miles per hour. Since the motorhome was parked facing west and the wind was out of the south…it became rock and roll time as the wind was hitting the motorhome broadside.

 

 

The soil here is hard-packed sandy and with the wind whipping across the parking lot…it sounded like the motorhome was being sand-blasted as it rocked and rolled!

 

 

I tried to capture a photo of sand whipping across the parking lot…but because of the smallness of sand particles and the velocity they were moving…this is the best photo I came up with…

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By 1:00 PM the wind had shifted to the southwest and I was now being hit at a 45 degree angle on the left front and side of the motorhome. and it was really rocking and rolling. If I wasn’t an ex-sailor…I probably would have suffered from dry-land sea sickness!

 

 

Enough of this! I had to do something! The gusts were so strong I thought it might blow the motorhome on its side!

 

 

 

 

 

Ah-ha…I knew what to do. I decided to back up the motorhome to the side of the Moose Lodge where I would be in the lee of the building and kind-sorta away from the wind…

 

 

The Moose lodge had held a blood drive that morning and the bloodmobile had the better position of being nearer the building…but it at least help reduce my rocking and rolling.

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a closer view of the flag ripping in the wind. It was at a 90 degree straight out position all day long…

 

 

As the afternoon wore on the wind came around to the west and now it was hitting the motorhome directly in the front. In doing so the rocking and rolling became less active. The wind continued into the night until it finally subsided. This morning the wind is gone and I’ll move the motorhome back to its pre-wind parking spot. I’ll be moving on tomorrow morning.

 

 

The locals told me that strong winds are a normal occurrence in the Spring in New Mexico. They told me that last year it was really bad…blowing for weeks at a time. I’m sure glad I wasn’t here then! I’ve been in New Mexico for about six weeks now and this is the third time I’ve been exposed to really strong winds. Enough already!

 

 

Also later this morning I’ll break out the vacuum and do some cleaning…there’s dust everywhere inside of the motorhome! Enough already!

 

 

There’s a saying…”some days are diamonds and some days are dust”. Yesterday was a really dusty one for me!

This motorhome parked across the street from me yesterday…

 

 

 

 

A little closer view zeroing in on his passenger side mirror…

 

 

 

 

A closer look…

 

 

 

 

Closer yet…

 

 

 

What a neat photo of my motorhome and Bronco…

 

He needs to clean the bugs off of his mirror covering.  🙂

 

That’s what I love about being a photographer…I see things that a lot of folks would just walk by and never see.  🙂

Young And Pretty…But Dumb!!!

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Like Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. I’ll depart here May 26th.

 

 

 

Today’s Subject…Young and pretty…but dumb!!!

 

 

Yesterday at about 10:45 in the morning, a young and pretty juvenile Acorn Woodpecker landed on my driver’s side mirror…

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A closer look…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shortly thereafter it started pecking away at my hard black plastic mirror holder…

 

 

 

 

It took a short break and started pecking away once again…

 

 

After a couple of minutes, it finally got tired of making no headway and flew away. Pun intended!  🙂

 

I had heard this rat-tat-tat noise a couple of days ago and just good not figure it out. I even went up on the roof to look for what might be causing this unusual noise.

 

Twice later in the day…rat-tat-tat…etc…once again! I finally ended up shooing them off.

 

You can read all about this young and pretty, but dumb woodpecker by clicking this link…

I hope you enjoyed the photos!

 Yesterday was partly sunny and 72 degrees. Forecast for today is partly sunny and 70 degrees.
