  • A Weekend trip in 2 Texas Towns you've never heard ofWhen people talk about Texas, they think about [[https://www.faqtr.me/stories/austin|Austin]], Dallas, Houston and eventually San Antonio.

  • July 2The Old Town of Albuquerque is relatively compact, unusually quiet on a Monday morning, and mostly occupied by little restaurants and tiny galleries. The main attraction, however, appears to be Breaking Bad, a show I have not seen, including a Posted by FierceOrc in 2018 US New Mexico Texas | Jul 2, 2018
  • July 1Took the scenic byway 14, also known as the Turquoise Trail, stepping through the previous ghost town of Madrid, now a "quaint" and apparently thriving arts and crafts community with countless galleries and potteries.

  • June 30The road from Tucumcari to Las Vegas, NM, led us through vast expanses and wide panoramas that are unimaginable in our tiny, overcrowded country.

  • June 29Until half an hour or so outside of Tucumcari, the road was long, straight, and narrow (no, seriously) through flat farmlands for tens of miles on end. In four hours we must have taken at least as many corners, maybe Posted by FierceOrc in 2018 US New Mexico Texas | Jun 29, 2018
  • June 28Leaving energy behind, today’s route over byways and farm roads was, you guessed it, all about farming. Big farming. Crop farming. Huge sprayer installations. Giant elevators. Co-ops. John Deere, obviously. Cattle stations, too, here and there. Large ones Posted by FierceOrc in 2018 US New Mexico Texas | Jun 29, 2018
  • June 27It took some 1500 miles, but today was the big day: pumpjacks. Quiet and rusting at first, but then vibrant yellow and in relentless slow-motion up-and-down swing. Hordes of them, left and right. This part of Texas is energy-driven. Heading Posted by FierceOrc in 2018 US New Mexico Texas | Jun 27, 2018
  • June 26At Enchanted Rock State Natural Area we looked up at the bare rock glistening in the sun and at each other, decided to leave the climbing to the youngsters and instead struggled through the sand around the foot a little.

  • June 25So today was the early, nice and quiet Monday morning San Antonio River Walk (with breakfast by the river) and The Alamo, featuring Living History, school uniforms, oak trees, and plenty of dead heroes, including David Crockett.

  • June 24We had planned this for tomorrow, but due to the ongoing changes we drove right by the Cascade Caverns today, so we decided we might as well take the tour now. It was no Carlsbad Caverns, but fascinating nonetheless. On to Posted by FierceOrc in 2018 US New Mexico Texas | Jun 25, 2018
  • June 23Spent the morning in town (finished off in style with lunch at SID’S MAIN STREET BBQ), and the afternoon in the onboard A/C. Everything they say about the heat this time of year is true. Must be why winter is Posted by FierceOrc in 2018 US New Mexico Texas | Jun 23, 2018

  • Ride 'em Cowboy!After an “interesting” night at La Kiva, the day starts with a great experience at the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame and Museum. The building is beautiful, and the exhibits are nicely done. [img=https://photos.travellerspoint.com/942484/large_12df3 Posted by WorldTravl in M's Mini-Blog, Bloguito, Bloguette | Jun 19, 2018
  • The Blue HoleThe day begins in the hotel room with Rami asking where the largest swimming pool in the world is. We google it and find that it is in Chile (19.77 acres big, by the way). Then he asks where the Posted by WorldTravl in M's Mini-Blog, Bloguito, Bloguette | Jun 19, 2018

  • June 18Today’s stop at Hueco Tanks State Park & Historic site near El Paso was a bit of a let-down. The ranger at the gate had missed out on a successful career as a 19th-century school mistress or a WW2 German Posted by FierceOrc in 2018 US New Mexico Texas | Jun 19, 2018
  • June 16Picked up the RV at Cruise America (it took a bit of pressure on the phone from the Netherlands to realize a pickup early morning rather than late afternoon) after some minor repairs and went shopping. Drove a tiny little Posted by FierceOrc in 2018 US New Mexico Texas | Jun 19, 2018
  • June 17On the way, we visited the Gran Quivira (also known as Las Humanas) ruins, one of the Salina Pueblo Missions. The ranger on duty was from Louisiana helping out his New Mexican friends and colleagues and when he found out Posted by FierceOrc in 2018 US New Mexico Texas | Jun 18, 2018

  • Priority Ticket to Hell We’ve been to hell – quite often. For example, the time we were locked in the bowels of an old car ferry chugging across the Black Sea to meet a visa entry deadline into Russia.
