We are on the road again!
First came Covid - which effectively shut down travel, especially for us "old folks".
Then we decided to sell our Airstream trailer.. and then "Big Red", the motorhome.
Then we bought a Class B to safely travel with the dogs from Florida to California.
Then came a host of medical issues for the Mister.
Then we were able to get vaccinations - which required hanging around for another month for the 2nd shot.
And finally the day came when we were clear of medical appointments and obligations...
and we were off!!
April 21-25: The "Tally Rally" Region 3 Airstream get-together. We stopped at friends' home (Elaine & Art) for lunch, then on to the fair grounds.

April 30: We ventured down into Carlsbad Caverns in the morning. Having visited Kartchner Caverns and the caves of Sonora, to name a few, this was totally different. I admired the subtle lighting used to highlight different formations in the Big Room, which is almost 4,000 feet long, 625 feet wide, and 255 feet high - the largest in North America. From there we turned north towards Roswell to spend the night. Most of the RV resorts in this area of the country are small, tightly packed "parking lots" with electric and water service. I picked the Trailer Village RV Park in Roswell from images on Google maps which showed it to be all gravel, but still looking orderly. I picked "good"! The park was spotless, gravel roads were freshly scraped. No campers had extraneous stuff stashed in and around their rigs. The managers (?) were welcoming. It was a great experience.
