On the Road Again

On Monday, Sept 15th we hit the road again. We left Alamosa, Colorado, and drove to Santa Fe where our two daughters and grandchildren live. That's Beth behind me, granddaughter, Alyssa, in front of Jim and daughter Christine on the right. Christine made us a wonderful dinner of salmon poached in cranberry-raspberry juice then reduced into a glaze....oh, my how wonderful. We stayed again at Black Canyon Campground at Santa Fe National Forest. With Golden Age Pass it was only $5.

So here are pictures of our other grandchild, Kenneth James Chapman, who works at Starbucks (gave me his weekly pound of coffee) and then in the other picture is Char his wife.....yes we have a married grandson, who is 22 years old. I keep telling you I am old!


The next day we traveled to Amarillo, Texas, and ate dinner at Big Texan. That is the restaurant where they have the 72 oz. steak for $54, but if you eat it in one hour you get it free....they make you pay for it first, since most people can't eat it all.

They have a huge lot in back and welcome truckers and rvers, so we decided to spend the night there. When we arrived there were only four dry vans; after dinner everyone else left and we were alone. However during the night, six, yes, six refrigerated trucks parked right next to us! We heard the "bur-r-r-r-" all night. UGH.
So Wednesday we ended in Oklahoma City to visit some campers we met while camphosting at Big Meadows in Colorado. We are staying at Twin Fountains RV Resort. It is very nice and reasonable at $32 a night. We'll play tourist today.
