While we were out yesterday, we also wanted to see a movie, specifically "War Horse", figured we'd hit an early matinee and be home to do dinner. Well early matinees don't seem to exist here in Alamogordo, as the first showing was at 3:00pm. Since it was 12:00 we decided on an alternate plan, see what was playing at the Space Museum's IMAX Theater. The IMAX had Mount Everest showing at 1:00pm, so that it was. This is our second IMAX movie experience, and it's just amazing, we love how your are just immersed in the film. "War Horse" will have to wait for another day.
That's it for the big project of the day and the day out around town. So we'll see you next time, with warm pipes and a happy heart.

The wind was screaming and the sand was blowing at the monument. I went out in an attempt to capture it in pictures, while being sand blasted myself. See more on the Photo Page.

The day ended with another amazing New Mexico sunset. It's sure has been nice settling back into day to day life and not worrying about running here and there, as the last couple of months have been. We sure enjoyed visiting everyone across the country, but now a little down time is in order.
That's it for today, we'll see you back here in a day or two, so keep Lovin Your Life as we do ours..................hmmmm..............I wonder if Scrappys going to need a helmet now???

The past few days have been pretty busy with appointments, moving and getting our Black tank taken care of. Speaking of which, we took the trailer back to the RV repair shop where they quickly found and fixed the issue, seems it was just a lose fitting on the tank. They were very accommodating and stood true to their work about taking care of us, we have no problem with using them again if needed.
Today is Saturday, so we'll take a ride over to the BX, need to pick up a new water filter and look at a way to heat the area with all the water piping in the storage compartment. It's well below freezing each night now, so need to take all the precautions we can. Did the water leak thing in our last rig, not fun and don't want to do it in this one.
That's all for this episode, we'll catch up later, so take care and enjoy your day.

We have finally arrived back in Alamogordo, NM. We'll be here for a month or longer depending on how our Doctors appointments go. We are also getting our black tank re-fixed, as what ever the repair shop did in Nov, something went awry and we still have a leak.
That's it for now, so stay tuned for more form sunny southern New Mexico.

Staying true to our decision to move around (even if it's just in the area) we moved back up to Alamogordo, NM and the Boot Hill RV Resort. This turned out to be a good move, as the hosts were the friendliest and most helpful of any we have seen on our travels. They were also the reason we decided to stay with them until our departure in late Oct.
It was getting late and we needed to start heading toward the house, we did stop in Deming for diner and found the Mimbres Valley Brewery, where we discovered Green Chili Beer and Chocolate infused wine, a very interesting experience and more than yummy!!!
Fall is beginning here in the high desert and what better way to see it than head to the mountains. Alamogordo is located at the foot of the Sacramento Mountain Range so it was just a short drive up to some beautiful scenery and our favorite little mountain town of Cloudcroft.
In Oct we stayed really busy, a bit of a contrast to earlier months were we were mostly just hanging out. The beginning of Oct brought the Trinity Tour, a twice a year tour of the first atomic bomb test site. Very interesting to see and learn the history of the atomic age.
While in KS we also stopped in at one of the local history museums, it's always fun to learn the history of these areas and there is no better place to do it.
November brought a fast run for Florida and our sons wedding at the end of the month. Alot of driving and many miles covered in a short period of time, but we did stop to catch our breath once in a while. First real stop was more Moochdocking at Sheryl's Cousins home in North FL.
And of course the whole reason for coming to FL was to see our son marry the lady of his dreams. It was a great week, with lots of fun and wedding bliss.
December was another busy travel month, we had agreed to watch Sheryl's bothers kids in Austin TX. while they took a couples vacation and we also agreed to spend Christmas in Oklahoma City with our other batch of kids, so off and running we were.
First stop after Miami and a quick rest stop from the crazy busy wedding week was McDill AFB in Tampa FL. We were able to get a spot (highly unusual for this time of year we were told) for 3 days off. We fixed a flat on the rig, eats some good food and just enjoyed some more great FL weather.
and lots of Christmas holiday fun to be had by all.
Whew, 2011 was quite a ride and we are hoping for a great 2012, abit at a little slower pace. However, we were advised of a couple of surprises that are to take place in 2012, but we'll keep that secret for now.................Ok, 2011 has come to it's end and here's to a great and happy 2012 to everyone!!!!
