Rio Grande Gorge, New Mexico


Finally Decisions Decided


Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas

Today's Date: 5-17-2022

Finally some decisions were able to be made on travel plans for the near future. Tomorrow we will be attempting to make plans to be in north Alabama in early July. If this works out we have over thirty days to do things before we arrive up there. Another blog or three have been giving us the worst case of hitch itch we recall ever being struck with. One of them is

We will see what happens. The little two month trip last January and February to the Rio Grande River certainly started the travel itch in the OFM Teams again.

Today we started the last legal requirement that could hold us back. Sierra got the Texas inspection and now the OFM can pay the fees for the windshield sticker to allow Sierra to roam the country side. So far we are looking at the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles for touring some new territory. I.E. The third largest canyon in the USA is in the Texas panhandle and it is a four day tow from north Alabama just like Rockport Tx.

Since both the grands will be in formal schooling this next year, all the style of the last ten years travel is out the window and a new pattern is coming up. It will be interesting how things work out.

Today was spent cleaning up little nuisance things getting ready for rolling  for the serious purpose of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. So, gonna check out Palo Duro huh. That sounds like a good idea. My mother-in-law many years ago lived up there and it was wonderful to go from here (where it's really not very humid) to there in August, arriving around midnight and the air was COOL and light. And much cooler the next morning. I actually like the TX panhandle, but then, I like deserts too. So the lack of trees (as in East Texas) puts some people off, but I like to see far!! NM is my favorite state for seeing far. Glad you got your waterline fixed so fast.

  2. It is always a challenge finding the right spot to visit while having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. Excited to see that you are going to start travelling again. I look forward to your adventures.

  4. Hello Barney, there are some great COE parks, (cheap with the senior pass) in Arkansas right along the Arkansas River. It's not too far out of your way to Alabama. Just a thought.
