Monday May 27th 2019 Day 45 Memorial Day Right this one down in the books we left plenty early for a change having time to explore but not before making the sketchy drive out which seemed a bit smoother for some unknown reason. Once in Mesa Verde National Park the crazy curvy roads give you…

RV Life: Long Lines and Mountain Views

Sunday May 26th 2019 Day 44 Our day started with a check around the mysterious boondocking spot we found late into the dark last night.  Being just a very small turn out off the rambling road and along the river it would suit any quick overnight stay. Our cruise across the bottom of Colorado on…

RV Life: Carlsbad Caverns National Park

Tuesday May 21st 2019 Day 39 Our 6th National Park awaits us today but getting there would prove to be a true white knuckle ride. Sleep did not come easy last night with wind gusts nearing 50 mph and sustained above 25 mph. We had to move the RV in fear of tipping and our…

RV Life: Insane Wind & No Pizza

Monday May 20 2019 Day 38 I never did mention in the past few post about the cell tower issue with Guadalupe Mtn National Park. They sit so close on the border of time change that depending on what tower your phone is pinging you could have the wrong time and that most certainly happened…
