Today was another nice day but windy, fortunately the Airstream isn’t a high profile RV so the wind doesn’t really bother us or knock us around.

We took I-40 from Tucumcari to Santa Rosa, then picked up Highway 54 south to Almagordo. Highway 54 was good most of the way but there was about a 100 km (60 miles) stretch where it wasn’t real great and no shoulders. There was very little traffic so that was a help during the rougher part.

We were going to stay at Edgington RV Park in Alamagordo, it is a Passport America Park and we had stayed there two years ago and it was quite nice but when we got there it was pretty well full. We had passed the Boot Hill RV Resort a couple of miles back so turned around and went back there, a good move, as it is a really nice park and for one night we got the PA rate of $13.25 – how good it that!! There is free wi-fi here and long pull thrus, a really nice park.

We are back in the part of the country we love with mountains, mesas and lots of nothing for miles. The mountains here are really pretty tonight with the sun and shadows and blue sky interspersed with dark clouds, very pretty!

The high today was 58F (14C) and tomorrow is supposed to be sunny, warmer and no wind, how good is that!

Tonight I will make dinner inside, linguine with Alfredo sauce and shrimp, that way we don’t have to worry about trying to grill in the wind. Another quiet evening is in store, and probably an early evening, as again we are tired after another travel day.

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another good tomorrow.
