The Natural Entrance, walking tour.

Hi, this was a very long walk just down to the entrance, let alone the rest of the tour. We were followed by a 50 person High School group. So we had to keep ahead of them.

The Left Hand Tunnel.

Hi, this was done by candle light, 13 total, and you had to stay on the narrow path between red tape lines. You couldn't step, or touch, anything outside of these lines, even if you were losing your balance. We all blew our candles out and were in complete darkness for a few minutes. There were only two places where we were allowed to take pictures.

"Switch to LED or else...."

Hi, tonight while in Carlsbad, New Mexico we had a dome light failure. This could have caused a fire in my trailer. I started a new thread with the above title.

Hi, we left Carlsbad and headed West. We went through a part of Texas known as El Paso. It was blow you off of your feet windy. As soon as we were back in New Mexico, it was nice again. Mountains and head winds has killed my gas mileage. The strong winds have also cracked my outside refrigerator aluminum door. If I had a few things to work with, I might be able to save this very thin aluminum door. A piece of aluminum angle or strap with some two sided tape would work. Hate to buy a new door $$$$$. We are at a KOA in Lordsburg. Pretty nice place. This morning it is cold and a little bit windy. The WIFI signal is weak, but working better than most of the places we have been to on this trip.

The old trailers at Enchanted Trails in Alb. are always there. They are rented out to tourists. When we were last at this park, wifi was terrible too and we were right next to an antenna. This is the CG where many stay before going to the Balloon Fiesta with the Airstream group.

Cold here too, but NM sounds colder. Since the cold air comes down into the US on the east side of the Rockies, not all of it makes it across the mountains to the west. Stay west of the Sangre de Cristo Range and it may be warmer—Santa Fe may be better than Alb.

We went to Carlsbad in mid-summer. Very, very crowded. We also went to what was then called the "New Cave", but I think it has another name since it wasn't actually new when it was discovered in the 1920's. Flashlights were ok. Tours to other caves nearby or parts of the the main caverns are scheduled for certain times and days, so it is good to check beforehand. We went before the internet, so we couldn't check and took what there was available and it was very interesting.

Phoenix, Arizona.

Hi, last night we made it to Phoenix, Arizona. We will stay for three nights. I needed some gas and a few things at the store. as usual the store didn't have everything that I needed. I also wanted to buy some parts so I could fix my dome light, but ran out of time. Last night at the gas station, where I thought I was getting a good deal, I got burned. My Lincoln has a 30 gallon tank and was down to just under 1/4 tank. When done pumping, it said that is was $92.00 and it took just over 30 gallons. I knew right then that something was wrong. I talked to the employees, had one witness my gauges, and was given a corporate phone number to call. I left a message and was called back this morning. My calculations showed that I was charged for an extra 5 gallons of gas. This morning I got a refund for the over charge. My trip meter, my mileage indicator, and my calculator showed that I used 25 gallons since previous fill up.

Busy day.

Hi, this morning I went back to the gas station where the manager refunded the over charge, with no questions asked. He made a lot of money off of that pump. This camp ground has a free dog wash so Boo-Boo got a bath today. Then it was laundry time. More shopping and a take out lunch was bought today. We met my Daughter's family at a restaurant, had a nice dinner, and later had a nice visit in our trailer. Her boys are fascinated with our trailer. I also bought a few parts and some temporary LED's for my most used dome light.

These are little bright white LED's and they are fine for now. I will order all new warm whites and use one of these in my steps light.

Hi, today we went to Payson to see my brother and his wife. It's about a two hour drive from Phoenix. Dusty was happy to see my brother and he was happy to see Dusty. We went to the local Casino where we had lunch. Lee and I ordered the 1/2 pound cheese burgers. Only size that they have. Dusty ended up with half of one of them, so he was happy. My Lincoln is tanked up and ready to go tomorrow morning, but we haven't decided where or which direction to go.

The answer is Grand Junction, the heart of Mesa County, Colorado.

Hi, Gene; We were thinking about heading that way, but Ken scared us off with all the snow and ice in Colorado.

Hi, We are going in circles and lost without WIFI. OK where was I? We left Payson and went back to Flagstaff, Arizona. We stayed at Black Barts. No WIFI there and you better have your 50 Amp dog bone with you. [or 15 Amp dog bone] We made a trip to the Grand Canyon South Rim; Dusty has never been there before. Watched the Sun set, and the temps drop, so we headed back to camp.

(1.) Black Bart's.

(2.) John Deer.

(3.) Farmall.

(4.) Sheet metal art.

(5.) Proof that Dusty was at the Grand Canyon.

(6.) Grand Canyon Tower.

(7.) One View.

(8.) Sign showing some of the places we went to. We did not go to Page or the North Rim on this trip.
