Oct 28 Alamogordo NM

Having made the decision to head south again, we got up this morning and did our 'get ready to go' list. I joined the happy campers at the clubhouse because Wed is donut morning - and I'm NOT going to pass up a free donut :) Then Cinder and I went for a long walk to work off those calories! By the time I got back to the MH David had everything ready to roll...and we were rolling down the road by 9:40 am! That is the earliest we were on the road since we started this journey!

The wind was gusting about 40 mph, which was not too bad, since we are from Cheyenne and 40mph is considered a gentle breeze...:) During the trip, we got an email from Dianne in Cheyenne, envying us because Cheyenne was getting dumped on - with 25 degree temps...I know it was evil, but we just kept chuckling to each other!

We pulled into the Alamogordo Moose Club about noon - got permission to park (I called yesterday) and lo and behold, we had electric AND wifi!!! Woohoo, it doesn't get any better than that! Oh yes, and the price is right..free!

We had some lunch (taco stuff) and headed out to the Visitor's Center. After chatting to two very nice volunteeers, we stopped at a small local museum, then decided we would take a chance on going to the New Mexico Museum of Space History which was a good decision! http://www.nmspacemuseum.org/content.php?id=38 It is well worth the $5 per person - we spent about 2 hours there.

Before we left I put a crock pot of Paste E fagiole soup on - and when we got back the beans were still hard - so we had cheese wheels for dinner and the soup will work for lunch tomorrow.

We're now cozy and warm in our home on wheels - and I'll update tomorrow night :)

To all my 'friends and family' in Cheyenne...and in Albuquerque - stay safe and warm!
