We drove into old town Santa Fe this morning with Forest and Cindy and just spent time walking around the Plaza area looking at the wares of the various vendors, and then toured the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, and then the famous Loretto Chapel, which houses the famous spiral staircase built without any visible support (see pictures). We then had a late lunch at the Luminaria Restaurant. The temps did not get much higher than 63 today, and it was chilly in the shade! What a great relaxing day! Later this evening David and Denise Zonker breezed into town sans Newell and spent the evening with the Oliviers and us around the fire drinking wine, and eating snacks, and, of course, laughing a lot.

We departed Santa Fe Friday at 10:30am heading for home. We had a great time with Forest and Cindy, and the brief time David and Denise were there. We walked around Old Town Santa Fe, the art town of Madrid, and Taos.....ate a lot of great food, including one night of Gumbo prepared by Forest and Cindy. We would love to spend a lot more time in that area.....so much to see, and a lot of great cycling opportunities.

Forest and Cindy will spend a few more days there, and then head down to Albuquerque. Looking forward to visiting many of our Newell friends when we hit the road in less than a year.

Arrived home without incident early this morning. Stopped in Kingman to catch a few winks and were treated to an amazing electrical storm with torrential rains for about 2 hours! One casualty of the trip is a non-functioning tachometer. Was working when we stopped in Kingman, and NOT working when we left 4 hours later.....hmmmm. Otherwise, all systems worked well. We arrived home to rain coming down off El Cajon Pass from Hesperia, and very heavy fog. Took us about twice as long to descend from the summit down to Rancho Cucamonga. We were going around 30mph most of the time, and straining to see ahead.

Maybe you should bypass Kingman next time?
We're safely tucked away at American RV Park in Albuquerque. Just hooked up and eating lunch (no green chilis). Good wifi.

Actually, we have had good experience with Kingman over the years.....it was Needles, CA that bit us on this last trip....as we passed by Needles westbound on I-40 last night we thumbed our noses at the exit....there were no repercussions for that act of defiance.

Still in Albuquerque. Cindy and Mike are flying out in the morning, I'll head to Amarillo for a few days.
Went up in a balloon this morning, very cool.
So far it's been a great trip, no problems so far. Just need to work on a better solution for wifi.
Met Gary and Susie, nice couple. Hope they find their Newell soon.
