Las Cruces New Mexico – Destination for Fun with Friends – Fellow RVers Meet Us Here – We Dine Together at Local Restaurants – And There Are Plenty – Steve Had Coach and Jeep Washed after Five Days of Rain and Mud in Texas – Now They Shine Again –

Here we are in Las Cruces, New Mexico, all shiny and sparkly again after wind, rain, and mud accumulated during our altered trip through Texas. We had to reroute to escape the terrors of Hurricane Harvey. Barely out of Harvey’s reach we stopped in Louisiana about 50 miles from New Orleans, where our airbag deflated and would not inflate again. This airbag was part of the brake suspension system. We were immobile until we could have it repaired. I thoroughly enjoyed the wait in that simple but adequate RV park, but Steve, not so much. He wanted to move on, which by the grace of God we eventually did.

Our arrival in Las Cruces happened several days later than we first planned. This year we discovered that sometimes we are not in total control of our world. Sometimes we must go with the flow until we can know what we know. What we know is that God loves us and has not forgotten to keep us in His loving care.  We and our friends have spent many hours enjoying the goodness of God together and loving it. All we do is eat, as some of our other friends have pointed out, but we don’t just eat. We talk, share our life stories, discuss our future plans, and drive around the city seeing the sights. What a beautiful country is the USA. How happy we are to live in it here and there and everywhere.

    • All is well. Yes, We are back in Arizona for this winter, but a new plan for travel is on the horizon for us, one that will allow us more time to accomplish the circle from east coast and back to the western states. We are learning how to be full-time RVers. Nice to hear from you, Patti. Blessings to you and yours this Thanksgiving and Christmas season and always.
