Hi, this morning we left Enchanted Trails in Albuquerque, New Mexico. At 23 degrees, it was just too cold. Even though I disconnected my water hose last night, it still froze. We put my water hose in the shower so I could, later, roll it up without breaking it. as we headed South, it got down to 13 degrees and started snowing. We stopped at a gas station and then decided to continue our trip. Later we were abducted and found ourselves in Roswell, New Mexico.

Hi, for tonight, we are at the Trailer Village Campground in Roswell, New Mexico. We set-up camp and there was no water getting into the trailer. The water inlet was still frozen from last night. It eventually cleared, But I know the campground water supply is going to freeze tonight. I connected a water hose to the next sight so I could fill my fresh water tank, but that spigot was already frozen. I connected both my hoses together and was able to fill my fresh water tank. We will use the water pump tonight. My new water pump is quiet and works great in my shower; Maybe better than the shore pressure. It was a race to roll up my two water hoses before they got too cold and stiff. Also to get done before my hands froze. Our furnace will be running all night long. Glad I filled one of my propane tanks yesterday. As soon as one tank is empty, I switch to the other one and get it filled. It's way too cold to run out of propane.

Hi, my new brakes installed by Vinnie keep getting better as they seat-in. I have had to turn my brake controller down several times on this trip. Yesterday they were getting really grabby at slow stops. It is recommended by Tekonsha to use Boost #1 for travel trailers. I turned off the Boost and they seem to be perfect now. I think I started at 9.0 and turned them down at .5 each time and now I'm at 6.0. These work better than the original brakes ever did.

You got it colder there than up here in Canada. We're hovering around freezing by day and colder by night. Ponds are starting to ice over.

Cold. Its whats for breakfast. Just keep that heater runnin! As a veteran of hundreds of days in bear country, i say that the only real worries are our own species. I did get dented by a juvenile cow once, but he was having a teen moment. And he was being driven in a herd by , yet again, our own species.

Hi, Gail; I don't know if they rent those or if they are just for display; No-one was in any of them while we were there. We haven't figured out how we are going to get home with Oregon weather.

Hi, Gearheart; Today it got up to 50 degrees. I think I will still have to disconnect my water hose tonight.

Hi, hshovic; We had a few Bison, in Yellowstone park, get very close, but no touching.

Hi, well we escaped Roswell and made it to Carlsbad. This was another relatively short drive. Before we left a cute little trailer from Ontario, Canada parked next to us. We took a few pictures on our way out of Roswell. Did I mention it was cold there?

The Big Room.

Hi, yesterday we went into the Big Room as they call it; In Carlsbad Caverns. It is really huge and a lot of walking. Today we took the self tour where you walk down the natural entrance instead of taking the elevator down 750 feet. Later we took a guided tour of the Left Hand Tunnel. In this tour, it is only with candle light and no railings. And at one point we had to blow out all of our candles. CAN YOU SAY DARK? After the tour, as we are going back to our car, we saw the cute little Airstream again.
