Where We’re Headed Next …

Many of you have been following this blog and/or our You Tube channel at herbnkathyrv and for that we say “Thank You“.  It’s gratifying for us to know that you care enough to “c’mon along” for the ride and even better when you leave a comment either here at the bottom of any of our blog posts or in the comments area on You Tube (just below the video).

So many of you are curious as to where we’re going next and what we’ll be up to, so here’s the scoop;

Here is the link to Google Maps showing our route with overnight stops along the way from Baldwin, Michigan to Balloon Fiesta grounds at Albuquerque, NM. (We’ll be there from Sept 17th through Oct 14th when the Fiesta ends.)
We’ll be leaving here (Michigan) on Wed Sept 12th, staying in the driveways of friends we haven’t met yet on 3 nights (thanks to BoondockersWelcome.com), one night in a Cracker Barrel parking lot, and the final night at a “regular” campground at Amarillo, TX.  By staying in a “regular” campground the final night, we’ll be able to dump our waste tanks and take on 70 gallons of fresh water before we move on the next day to the Fiesta grounds.
If you care to, you can track our progress on the road real-time by following this link at any time.  This web page is linked to our GPS and tracks our location every 5 minutes or so.  You can plug in a recent start date and end date if you like so you don’t see everything that’s been recorded over the past few months.

Look Kath, we can see the WHOLE thing!

Continuing our trek westward, we pulled in to Hidden Valley RV Park near Albuquerque, NM for the night.  It was pouring rain when we pulled in, the office was already closed (but they had our registration info in the box at the door).  We weren’t able to get a pull-thru site so we had to disconnect the car in the rain sto2016-09-11-17-45-15rm out by the office, then drive on back to our spot (#53 all the way at the back) and then back in to our spot for the night.  Since we carry our food with us,  it was time for me to fir
e up the grill to cook some bratwurst for our dinner.

As I was tending to the grill and Kathy was working in the kitchen, the skies began to clear and take a look at what we were blessed to see.

The park wasn’t anything to write home about, but the rainbow was a pleasant surprise.

The next morning we headed on to Gallup, NM (USA RV Park) where, although a nice clean park with nice level gravel sites, had few trees BUT we were lucky enough to get a spot right next to a shade tree.  Here again it rained after we pulled in so I wasn’t able to cook on the grill.  We went on to a local Mexican restaurant where we had a good meal and then visited the famous EL RANCHO HOTEL in Gallup where so many famous actors and others visited during the 30’s to 60’s.  I took a few pix of the building inside and out so you can see the impressive architecture.

So in the morning we head off to our final destination of Camp Verde, AZ for our winter home.  More on that later.
