Cold night, lazy day, and packing up.....

Our Location: Elephant Butte State Park, Elephant Butte, NM

A cold morning this morning. We turned the furnace on for a while as the temps in the Igloo hovered in the mid 40's even at 10 am. I did some research into places to visit and stay in Arizona around the area of Benson and also did a quick search of a few other places we'd like to see as well. That seemed to take up the entire morning. I'm not sure how I spent that much time doing research. 

The red earth of the Texas panhandle.

Since we had pancakes for breakfast this morning, we weren't hungry at lunch time and decided to have a 'fend for yourself' type of day.

We did get outside this afternoon to pack up most of the stuff, a few little things left for tomorrow morning, shouldn't take more than about 15 minutes to finish packing and hooking up.

Patricia came by this afternoon about 2 pm to give us her information so we can keep in touch. She's a very nice lady, unique and original.

After she left around 3:30 pm we kind of drifted off in our own direction for the rest of the day. Riley to her space and me to mine. It was a very nice relaxing day for our last day here in Elephant Butte. I didn't take any pics today so I'll post some from when we were travelling. 

Somewhere in Arkansas.
I'm tired of fighting with Blogger about spacing and location, so tonight's blog is just going to be however Blogger insists it's going to be tonight.

Thanks for stopping by, sorry it wasn't more exciting. 

Until next safe, take care.......


  1. We spent many years in and around Benson in the winter, used to have 2 membership parks, Now here at Quail Ridge in Huachaca City is nice and only $10.00 a night pretty reasonable.
    Travel safe wherever you go.

  2. Thanks for the tip George, I appreciate it very much. I don't you to think I'm stalking you but we are enjoying trailing along behind.

    1. Not a problem, like to share what we do and do enjoy meeting other r'ver's. So many great places to see here in the southwest.

  3. We like the park George and Suzie are in now too. No pool but friendly staff and stuff going on. You would like it, I think.
    Your post isn't boring and Blogger seems to have been kind. :)
    Travel safe!

    1. You are most kind Patsy, thank you. Blogger and I have a battle every once in a while. I mentioned to George that I hope he doesn't think we're stalking him as we are following in his tire marks but we are going to check out the park he and Suzie are in as he mentioned to me it.

  4. Lots of interesting places to visit. Just have to find what you like the best.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  5. Thanks Rick. There are tremendously fascinating places and things to see in this area. We will definitely have to return to see more next year.
