Good-bye, New Mexico. [View all]

As you may know from previous posts, my husband and I are fulltime RVers who live and travel in a motorhome. We've been in New Mexico since April and have had a wonderful time. Yesterday was our last day in New Mexico and I was unbelievably sad to leave this morning. We're headed east, back to Maryland, to visit family and clean out a storage unit.

When we left Maryland last November we were in a campervan towing a jeep so we didn't have room for much for our stuff. It's funny...we haven't missed any of it. Well, maybe our fishing poles and telescope but that's about it. I think when we get back to Maryland we're going to get rid of most of it. This lifestyle is so great and it's even better when you keep it simple. A few clothes, some books and art supplies and a few cooking utensils is really all we need.

Last night in Tucumcari we watched a movie that was set in New Mexico, "Off The Map" with Joan Allen and Sam Elliott. I highly recommend it. I wish we had watched it our first night here instead of our last. I think it captures the beauty and power of this great state and is part of the reason I felt so sad to leave today. sigh

Anyway...thanks so much for all the tips on places to see and places to stay. We were mostly in the northeastern section this trip but we plan to come back this Fall and spend more time in the rest of the state. (A special thanks to Voice For Peace for just being so awesome. Meeting you was a highlight of the trip for both Larry and me. Thank you so much for everything.)

I have a blog that has some photos of places we visited if anyone is interested. http://postcardsfrompamandlarry.blogspot.com/. The New Mexico posts start back in April. I'll probably do one more New Mexico post soon with my Tucumcari pics.

Thanks again! Bye for now.
