West Coast Spring 2018 – Santa Fe, Part Three

May 29 – June 1 Our plan for the day was to drive to Los Alamos to tour the Bradbury Science Museum, part of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park which is comprised of various spots in the city.  We figured we’d spend the day there and then return to town for dinner, first stopping […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Santa Fe, Part Two

May 29 – June 1 After breakfast in camp we drove back into Santa Fe, this time parking in one of the multi-story public garages for a fairly reasonable $11 for the whole day.  With a few minutes to kill before the start of the tour and is our habit, we sought out coffee and […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Santa Fe, Part One

May 29 – June 1 With a seven-hour drive ahead of us we got on the road early, walking out the door with Bev as she left for work.  We’d be splitting the 11-hour drive to Santa Fe into two stages, doing the lion’s share today with an overnight in Dalhart, Texas giving us a […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Kansas

May 24 – 28 With just a four-hour drive ahead of us (one goal for this trip was to minimize big mileage drives) we broke camp in a leisurely fashion and made the drive into Colony, Kansas for a long-anticipated visit with Bev and her husband Bill on their spread out in the country.  It […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Branson

May 20-23 We had a four-hour drive ahead of us and wanted to get to Branson early in the afternoon in order to set up camp at Branson KOA, our home for the next four nights.  We were curious as to what we would find in this town, known as a popular destination for vacationers […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Sikeston

May 18 – 19 Because we had to cancel our weeklong ride along the Katy Trail, we needed to fill up the days before arriving in Kansas at my sister Bev’s place.  We added a day to Nashville and one to our stay with her, which still left us with six nights to fill.  We […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Nashville, Part Four

May 14 – 17 With some time to kill our last morning in Nashville, Joanna took her bike out for a ride on the nearby greenway (my knee was still in no condition to do so) while I read and worked on the blog.  After she returned and cleaned up, we drove to Post East […]
