Las Cruces NM (Low 34 Partly Sunny)
Willcox AZ (Partly Sunny High 66)

Slideout worked 2 times in a row, yeah!!

Happy belated Thanksgiving!

We hit the road again after one night at the Balmorhea State Park, a really nice state park that we would like to visit again. In fact this whole trip to our winter home has been that way. With all the maintenance issues we have been longer than we want at some spots and shorter at the others. When we were at a place for awhile then we had rain or cold or ice at those spots. The end result is that we did little to no sightseeing along the way. Like Bob and Linda say it gives you a reason to come back the next time.

The clouds gave way and we had a very nice driving day seeing the ice and snow that had hit the area. It was 220 miles which is a little longer than we like but still a doable day even after 240 the day before. We went into Mountain Time so the extra hour allowed us to get takeout from Nellie's Cafe in Las Cruces which closes at 2pm.

We had read online that Nellie's is a local place that has been there for awhile and is known for their killer green chile. It has been a long time since we have had green chile in New Mexico so Bob got the water and electricity going and then headed to Nellies.

The green chile was a little hotter than we would like but still good. Our usual green chile fix is in Albuquerque at La Salita or Sadies but we took a different route this time.

We are heading to Willcox Arizona today for the weekend and Monday we plan on heading to Goodyear Arizona, our winter home for a few months.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. While you're in Wilcox would you check and see if the apple place is open? Stout's used to be there but they closed and they were getting it ready for a different apple store - Apple Annie's or something. We really like Wilcox.

  2. Glad you in the traveling mode again.

    Goodyear, AZ,...home of the Cleveland Indians spring training camp. We might head that way again this year. We had a great time two years ago watching them play. Go Tribe!

  3. Yea! Slide working! AND, YEA for GREEN CHILI!!!! Great that you guys are getting close to your "winter home!" Just 55 minutes from us! Trust all goes well on your "last leg!" May the BWE be GONE!!!! Safe travels!
