It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Another Change Of Plans, Not A Scenic Area and Bright Dull Day.

Our Location today is at El Rancho RV Park in Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S.A.

Even though we are in a Park type setting we are also within the city-limits of Albuquerque, New Mexico which still has sections of the old Route 66 running through it. Think back when anybody who was somebody traveled that road in their Muscle Cars and what they sounded like. That was the sound we listened to through most of the night. To say our sleep was broken many times more then when we were in Kingman, Arizona would be an understatement. 
With the night-time low dropping below 41 F (5 C) last night we took advantage of the free Electric Power and ran our Electric Fireplace Heater keeping us warmer then in Shiprock. The one thing that seemed to be a constant was that I got tired of laying in bed and got up by 7:30 MDT this morning.
Visiting the Desert Bar last Saturday.
We enjoyed eating breakfast at our own table, having a Two-Cup morning while reading at the Computers. I had already seen the changed weather forecast before Kathy had but when she read it there was a slight gasp that came from her direction. Every one of the Weather Programs that we have on our Computers were showing Severe Wind Warnings for the next Two Days sweeping across the path we will be using in order to head for Home in Ontario.
Tuesday evening Campfire.
We know of lots of our Friends traveling in those areas in their RVs and can only pray that they are not affected by these Storms. We’ve already read a few of their Blogs where they said that the Parks they are in have given them Warnings of what to do in case of an Emergency and where the Storm Shelters are located. 
Tuesday Sunset on Plamosa Road.
The Office here at this Park is closed on the Weekends so I went over to the Managers Private Quarters and told them we’ll have to extend our stay. I was told to meet them at the Office in a while. I went there over a Dozen Times with no luck. Guess I’ll try again tomorrow. 
Lake Havasu ahead on Wednesday
Kathy and I walked down to Central Avenue to get a sense of direction as well as some Exercise. The area is very run down and everywhere we went there were Bars on the Windows and Razor-Wire on all the Fences. Walking along the outside of the Park we saw the same Razor-Wire as other businesses. We walked both the loops noting there were very few sites that could handle our sized RV and many of the Park Models were probably there when the Park first opened. 
Wednesday was slightly windy but a good travel day.
Kathy needed a Snap to catch up on some of the sleep she didn’t get last night. I made another attempt to extend our stay with no luck. I spent some time using my new Dumbbells in order to strengthen my weakened Neck Muscles. Not wanting to Overdo it and not having a Bench to use Twenty-Minutes was enough. 
Thursday Snow Flurries.
Going inside I turned on my Computer but woke up Kathy and she was coming downstairs. Guess I needed a Snap as well. We re-examined the Forecast and it seemed to include more of our present location. 
Thursday was Wet, Cloudy and Cold
We decided to walk down to the Pizza Hut for supper but stopped at Family Dollar for another walk. Leaving empty-handed we found out that Pizza Hut was only a pickup place so we walked down to Griff’s. It seemed to be a popular Burger Outlet but we ordered Chicken Sandwiches with Onion Rings instead of Fries. I finally had to ask where our food was after others that came in after were leaving and we still didn’t have our order. 
Pleasant drive Friday.
For some form of entertainment tonight we watched one of the movies we recently purchased at Walmart in Parker. It was titled White House Down. Once the action started it never stopped. We both gave it Two Thumbs Up.

We’ll explore away from this area tomorrow so we’ll be ready to hit the road on Monday. Being in this setting we really didn’t feel like taking Pictures so we look at what we did in the last week. Thanks for following along, feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
