Successful trip

This fall our migration looked different in several ways. Not only were we traveling in our car pulling a flatbed trailer, our route was different. We took three days instead of 5 and we stayed in motels, not RV parks. With the price of gas now, it saved us a couple of hundred dollars, even staying in motels. This was an experiment to see if I would travel without as much concern as I have been experiencing in the motor home. I love living in it, but it just feels so big when I’m in the passenger seat and the road sometimes seems very small with no shoulders, in addition to other drivers not always taking our size into account. Even LeRoy noticed that I wasn’t fidgety, so I guess it must have worked. It also helped that we went through Pie Town, NM and brought home a New Mexico Apple Pie, with green chilies and roasted pinon nuts. It has to be just about my favorite. I have the recipe and I plan to make one very soon.

We found our place in very good shape, other than the fact that the toilet decided to flush once and quit. 57 years ago I married a man who isn’t afraid to tackle anything and I have no idea how much money that has saved us over the years. For the price of the tank “innards”, he had it back up and “running” very quickly. We borrowed two of our pastor’s kids to come help clean up the dust and grit of an Arizona summer in the house and especially clean blinds and mirrors. We’ve also washed curtains, scrubbed the shower and washed the patio doors inside and out. There’s still a lot to do, but we’re not leaving any time soon.

It felt good to be back in church at Desert Grace this morning and we already have assignments for the Journey to Christmas presentation next weekend. That is what we used to call the Hanging of the Greens when we lived in Tonkawa. There will be a catered meal first. It’s a church function! You know there will be food! We also have an invitation to Thanksgiving dinner, so there again, food!

Locals are apologizing to us for the cold weather and wind! Our highs have been in the 60s this week, with winds kinda like a Kansas breeze. I’ll take it!

About 2010liberty

Retirement agrees with us! After traveling in our 40' Silver Eagle bus conversion, whose name was Liberty, since 2010, it was time for a change. Now we spend the winter in Yuma, AZ and travel during the spring, summer and fall setting the Pace!
