    Alberquerque- New Mexico

    August 18 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Got another KOA campground, less than a mile down the road we hit the Manzano Baptist Church just in time for the 6.30pm service. Great message & very warm friendly service. Local Sherrif was in the congregation so we should be right here. Then got to have a beautiful Mexican dinner at El Patron Restaurant. No grass at this campground so the air mattress better hold up cause there's alot of stones!Read more

    New Mexico!

    April 26, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    After Amarillo, like the coin decided for me, i wanted to head a bit more south. That’s what i was going to do... i guess. So ofcourse i started to doubt if this would be the right choice, i decided to just get on the road and take my little tank just a little bit towards Albuquerque and see if my mind is actually making up its mind. While on the road, I noticed that there was a really strong wind pushing me to the south, and even big trucks did not seem to keep their position on the road very well, so i had to get off the main road for a while, next to the freeway. While i was driving a more comfortable 45 mph, i saw a sign on the road telling me that i was on the good old Route 66 once more!. After driving for a while i saw a person standing next to the road, with a huge backpack on, and a cardboard saying Albuquerque... In a split decision i decided to take this guy in, and also decided in that instance, that i could probably also drive to Albuquerque and then head south as the coin decided for me.
    This really nice guy turned out to be hitchhiking across the USA for about a year after graduation, and it was fun having some good company during the drive! The drive to Albuquerque was really showed that the climate was changing, and the view changed more into a desert area, with big mountains in the background. When we reached a town about 60 miles from my final destination, we both went our own way.. probably after letting him listen to some classic happy hardcore songs from Europe did the trick haha.
    After arriving on a city campground, which ofcourse had plenty of RVs around, but no people, who could have guessed!, i decided to stick around in New Mexico for a couple of days, as there are many great places to visit in this State.

    Next morning, i found out that my refrigerator died on me last night, so before i can head out, i will have to visit a repair shop to get this thing sorted out, but this gives me some time to write this blog, so all is fine!

    See you later!

    Albuquerque, NM - Albuquerque KOA

    May 30 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    Today we crossed the Continental Divide at 7,500 feet which means our trip is all downhill from here. We have stopped in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This stop is just that, only a stop for the night. We have already spent considerable tourist time here during previous trips. Albuquerque is worth a look!

    As cities go, Albuquerque is one of the more inviting ones we have visited. It has much history and culture to absorb. It's big, 190 square miles, with a metropolitan population of 916,000. It is an old town, founded in 1706 by the Spanish. The "Old Town" still thrives today with businesses, restaurants, and a church surrounding a central plaza. The "New Town" was founded when the railroad came to town, but not to the Old Town. Since then the city has been steadily growing and at times by leaps and bounds. Today the urban sprawl continues as the city expands westward and culturally it remains the crossroad of New Mexico.

    Albuquerque KOA Kampground

    March 30, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 3 °C

    We had our first bone head mistake of the trip, we lost our 30 amp power cord.
    It seems that we didn't latch the rear hatch of the teardrop when we left Lake Havasu. On the way to the Grand Canyon, the hatch opened up on the highway. We didn't think we lost anything. Our box of wine was still there 😅 No electric hook-up at Grand Canyon, so we didn't realize what had happened until we got to Albuquerque and couldn't find the electrical cable.
    The KOA campground was kind enough to lend us one.
    We'll have to buy one at an RV store along the way.
    Next stop, OK City.
    Update: There was an RV store along couple of blocks from the KOA where we had a 15% off coupon for the cable. It was still an expensive mistake.
