Rocking And Rolling All Day Long… (GA81)

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 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!

A couple of days ago I visited this museum which does a great job of presenting local history and artifacts. Unfortunately, for the most part the museum was rather dimly lit which made for difficult photography conditions. The flash on my camera is too harsh and lugging a tripod around isn’t any fun. Nonetheless, here are some photos that I took while there…

I always enjoy visiting the local museums wherever I am. It adds so much more pleasure to have an understanding of the history of the area I’m visiting. Going to museums is one of my very favorite pastimes in my full-time RVing lifestyle.

Just east of my current location in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico is Elephant Butte Lake which was created by the Elephant Butte Dam.

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

In this first photo you can see the dam with the lake in the background and what remains of the Rio Grande River flowing to the left…

 

 

 

 

 

The next three photos show the views looking left to right from my vantage point overlooking the dam…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the dam was completed in 1916, it was classified as the second largest irrigation dam in the World. Here’s a plaque commemorating the event…

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s an historical marker describing the dam…

 

 

 

 

 

So where does the name Elephant Butte come from? This next photo shows the answer. Picture the island with water where it has been in the past. Someone with a great imagination thought it looked like a lying-down elephant. What do you think???

 

 

 

 

 

Locals tell me the water level is down 120 feet from its design depth. With 10 dams above the Elephant Butte Dam…it’s no wonder the once mighty Rio Grande has trouble supplying sufficient water…

Truth Or Consequences, New Mexico (GA72)

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 Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I expect to leave here May 8th. While here, I’ll be doing routine maintenance, repairs and general cleaning.

 

 

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.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 20 miles from Lake Caballo State Park to Truth or Consequences, New Mexico where I am parked at Moose Lodge #2050…

 

 

 

 

 

Along the way the ABS light on the motorhome dash came on. Grrr…

 

 

While not earthshaking it stills need to be looked at to find out what the problem is. In the afternoon I took it to a local garage recommended by the administrator of the Moose Lodge. Since they do not regularly work on motorhomes…they were unable to locate the computer port to diagnosis the problem. So I have a 9:00 AM appointment at the local Chevrolet dealership this morning. I hate going to dealerships because they rape you financially…but a person has got to do what a person has to do.

 

 

You can read all about Truth or Consequences and how it got its unusual name by clicking this Wikipedia link…

I expect to be in this area for several days. I’m less than 150 miles from Albuquerque where I’m hoping Mary will be flying in to meet me up with me once again in about 2-3 weeks. So I’m kind of pacing myself for that event.

Geronimo Springs Museum – New Mexico

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Palm Desert. California, of which we are members. I’m planning to depart from here on December 18th. Mary will fly in to join me at Yuma, Arizona sometime in January.

A couple of days ago I took a walk around the resort and took a few photos. Here is one of them…

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 purposes in leaving early was to escape the much colder weather in Murphys, California. In addition, I have lots of friends in the Yuma area plus I’ll cross into Mexico to visit my dentist for my annual visit, refurbish the freon in the Bronco’s air conditioning system and get new prescription eyeglasses.

Yesterday was a mostly sunny day at 58 degrees.  Forecast for today is partly sunny and 67 degrees.

A more relaxed mode…

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, we have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months we will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless I do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

To read about today’s photo album location, click this link… http://geronimospringsmuseum.com/exhibits.html

I’ll Be Making Some Adjustments…

hopefully later today.

I arrived in Albuquerque, New Mexico yesterday on a Sunday morning at 10:00 hoping for light traffic. The below map from the visitors center shows that Albuquerque has two intersecting Interstate Highways forming, more or less, a big plus (+) sign in the middle of the city. I-25 running North to South and I-40 running East to West…

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 must admit I was truly surprised at how much traffic there was on a Sunday morning. Sure glad I didn’t decide to come in on a weekday!

I settled in at Moose Lodge #2241 shown as #1 on the map….

This is the view out of the dinette window…not bad for a large city…

It was difficult to find a relatively flat piece of ground in the sloping grade of the parking lot. The reason I chose this location is because it is very near to the only Workhorse Chassis (the kind on the motorhome) repair facility in the area. You might remember a couple of weeks ago when I entered Truth or Consequences that the ABS light came on…

I stopped at the local Chevrolet dealership there…but their three different diagnostic scanners would not communicate with the Workhorse Chassis. Hence my current appointment at the only Workhorse Chassis repair facility in the Albuquerque area at 9:00 AM this morning. Hopefully by noon the ABS light situation will be rectified and the Anti-Locking Brake System will be working properly.

So…what adjustments am I talking about. If you look at the above Moose parking lot photo once again…

On the far right side of the building you can see a sound barrier wall. Directly on the other side of the wall is eight lanes of a very busy Interstate Highway 40. The sound barrier wall really doesn’t work. The parking lot is VERY NOISY FROM THE HIGHWAY TRAFFIC AT ALL HOURS OF THE DAY AND NIGHT! Get the picture? Trying to get some sleep last night was a real nightmare! Pun intended! It’s interesting to note that on the left side of the above building…just on the other side of those trees…is a KOA Campground where folks are paying $46 a night and listening to the same noise I had last night.

So, what to do? Yesterday I took the Bronco and did some scouting of the area. One of the places I went to is VFW Post #401 shown as point #2 on the map…

it’s located very near the airport where I’m scheduled to meet Mary one week from tomorrow. It’s situated in an industrial complex with a locked gate at night and quite quiet for being in a large city. Once the ABS light is fixed…hopefully today…I’ll be moving over to the VFW Post. The Commander there said there’s no problem with a long-term stay.

The only potential glitch with moving today is the Workhorse Chassis repair facility might not have the parts to affect the repair. If that’s the case…I’ll play it all by ear.

A few days ago when I was camped at South Monticello Campground on Elephant Butte Lake…I mentioned that the quiet there was almost deafening and that I would be wishing I had some of that quiet here in Albuquerque. I was so right!
