Jalapeño Fajitas? Prepare to Evacuate!

Jalapeño Fajitas?  Prepare to Evacuate!
Jalapeno Fajitas?  Prepare to Evacuate! The love of my life and I were camping at Conchas Lake New Mexico with our friends Randy & Leslie in our 5th wheel RVs.  On this particular night we decided not to cook, which is rare, because all four of us are excellent cooks, and we love to perform our skills in the kitchen or galley. We mentioned to our friends that the Ramada Inn in Tucumcari made outstanding Fajitas, and we convinced them to go with us and make the short drive into to...

Our Favorite RV and Boating Jokes

Our Favorite RV and Boating Jokes
April is National Humor Month, so we are going to share some of our favorite jokes pertaining to RV living and travel or boating funnies.  If you have a favorite joke, share it with us!     An RVer in a motorhome got hopelessly bogged down in an unexpected muddy hole along a dirt road. After a few minutes, a passing farmer drove by on his tractor and offered to pull him out for only $20. After the motorhome was back on dry ground, the RV...

Don't Always Doubt the Weather Forecast

Don't Always Doubt the Weather Forecast
One of our favorite times to camp and fish at Elephant Butte Lake is the early part of October.  Up until about the middle of the month you can still enjoy warm days (unless there’s an early cold snap) and swim in water that’s still an enjoyable temperature.   Plus, most of the crowds have gone and it's very peaceful and quiet. A few years ago we planned a trip months in advance with our good friends Oscar and Juanita who live in Farmington for the first weekend in Oc...

Bonanza de camarón - Shrimp Bonanza

Bonanza de camarón - Shrimp Bonanza
For many years during the 1980s several avid bass fishermen from Albuquerque, New Mexico would caravan down to Lake Obregon Mexico for our annual February fishing trip.  My wife and I drove our Minnie Winnie Winnebago Class C motorhome and towed our Tracker bass boat, which was pretty easy due to the lightweight of aluminum Tracker boats.  All of us drove motorhomes of some kind and we all towed our bass boats behind them as well. Our 1979 Winnebago Minnie Winnie The fishing ba...

Crashing and Thrashing - Elk vs. Coyotes

Crashing and Thrashing - Elk vs. Coyotes
Navajo Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in New Mexico, but the water temperature is pretty cold until late August, even after its had a chance to warm up all summer. Despite the cooler water, we usually go camping at Navajo a couple of times a year in our Big Horn 5th wheel and fish off of our Suntracker pontoon boat for bass & catfish.  The hook-ups at the Juniper Loop and Cedar Loop RV campground are very nice, and the views of the lake are spectacular! A couple of years ago ...

Canyon Thunder

Canyon Thunder
Canyon Thunder My husband and I really enjoy going camping in our Sunset Trail travel trailer that we bought from you guys last year.  Our Pug Winston likes it too!  Actually, he thinks it’s his!  lol This spring we were camping in the Big Thompson canyon near Colorado Springs.  It was a super time mostly because it was during the week and we almost had the entire canyon to ourselves. Frank and I are in real estate sales, so we work the weekends and take off on Tuesda...

My Tracker Bass Boat is Gone!!

My Tracker Bass Boat is Gone!!
In a previous story I told you about buying my husband a Tracker bass boat for our 7th wedding anniversary.  One of our first trips with the new Tracker bass boat was to Elephant Butte lake for a special get together with friends that we called the Summer Blow Out.  It usually took place Labor Day weekend and involved all of our friends that wanted to participate.  Most years there were at least 10 to 12 friends who came together for a weekend of camping and fun on the water. I...

The Seven Year Itch - Scratched with a New Tracker Boat

 The Seven Year Itch - Scratched with a New Tracker Boat
For our 7th Wedding Anniversary, I decided to do something wild and crazy and bought my husband a brand new Tracker bass boat.  It had to do with the “Seven Year Itch” superstition in a marriage and I thought I’d give him something to scratch the itch with!  However,  I wanted it to be a surprise for him (I love surprising him!) and it took some extra thought and planning but I pulled it off flawlessly. I enlisted the help of my father in buying the Tracker bass...
