Living with a futurist, who happens to have a fancy degree in aeronautics and astrophysical matters, brought us to Spaceport America located on an almost mile high desert location in NM. Absolutely fascinating…there are actually almost 30 such “airports” of …

While at Lake Caballo Rv Park, waiting for our tour of Spaceport America, we found a few things to see…  Silver City on Hwy 152…a 75 mile trip on a very narrow full of switchbacks road ascending from 4000’ to …

Traveling around requires flexibility…all the time!  Plan was for a 3 day stop before continuing our westward trip…ending up as a 10 day stay in order to see Spaceport America.  Our scheduled tour was cancelled due to lack of enough …

Post TX is east of Roswell, of course; just a memory lapse!  Back to assumptions…upon arriving in Post, first impression was a tired little town long past its prime.  I checked “things to do” finding only a cemetery, small museum …

Roswell NM ~ aliens!

http://esc-hr.com/travelblog/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/NM-aliens-c-224x300.jpg

Do you believe in UFOs and visitors from other galaxies?!  After visiting Roswell and the UFO Museum, it is hard not to believe.  My travel partner certainly does and I remember reading about the happenings here. It dawned on us …

 

On the road heading west…

http://esc-hr.com/travelblog/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/tx-jack-n-5-300x224.jpg

After the ice storm in KS left the area, we headed south to Ft. Worth to see another “sistah”…on the way stopping in OK for a few days.  Nicer weather allowed for some window and clothes washing plus dusting & …

 

Thoughts traveling the USA…

http://esc-hr.com/travelblog/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/holding-up-world-300x225.jpg

After spending a few months traveling from Reno to Maine and then south along the eastern coastal states of the USA, a few thoughts…  A lot is different from out West, in my view…we are now heading west…to a  home …

 

Peculiar, MO

http://esc-hr.com/travelblog/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/KS-ice-300x224.jpg

Yes, that is the name of the town.  We could have stayed in Nevada, MO (named by a miner from Nevada City, CA…quite a connection!) but we chose Peculiar for the name and because it is closer to the two …

 

Truman Library ~ Independence MO

http://esc-hr.com/travelblog/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/MO-C-at-Truman-224x300.jpg

Harry S. Truman is the only President I have seen in person… even if I was only 5 years old it counts!  When Roosevelt died, Truman as VP became President and ran against Dewey in ’48.  The political caravan was …

 

Maumelle & Clinton Library

http://esc-hr.com/travelblog/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/AR-maybe-300x225.jpg

The Clinton Library is in Little Rock, AR and we found another Core of Engineers park on the Arkansas River in the town of Maumelle (mymelly…a special person!)  Again, we got site 13, my lucky number.  We are about 25’ …
