What’s Important?

Campsite in Bernalillo, NM

What kind of baggage do we haul around? I’m looking around here. Beautiful mountains, cool breeze. This stuff just doesn’t fit in your luggage. I’m in a little campground North of Albuquerque, New Mexico. We are the only people here camping in a tent. All the others are in Rvs. Seems like the way to travel now. The majority of the population is older couples, with or without grandchildren. I am without grandchild now that Mr. Grandson choked and decided to quit the National Guard.

I’m sad and happy at the same time. He was a huge over grown toddler. This camping stuff is hard. My Mom and I had some re-realizations. Don’t wait till the end of the day when you have driven 11 millions miles to go shopping for food. Duh! We both knew better than that, but we did it anyway. A road weary float through Wally-Mart is positively surreal after a long day on the road.

It’s beautiful and peaceful here. No TV, thank you God. No radio, no nothing. Well OK, almost nothing. I’m typing away furiously on my little net book. It was a dollar extra for electrical juice, so what the hey?

  1. You really wring all the fun you can out of your trips, don’t you?
    Good for you!

  2. No TV and no radio sounds like BLISS!

    1. At first I missed it. But now it is bliss.

  3. Shame that grandson baled on you … wonderful that you’re having a trip like this with your Mom… But I suppose this means you are the one putting up the tent each time? Hope you’re parking in an area for a few nights at a time.

    Hubby and I are planning a road trip through the northwest next year – but we’re thinking of Motel 6… I hate putting up tents…

    1. We did the tent the first night. The second night they informed us we were in bear country so we rented a cabin at the KOA campground. Much more comfy and bear proof.

  4. Beautiful scenery & glorious weather will make you lose your baggage, for sure! Enjoy!

    1. It has indeed made me do that. We are certainly having an adventure. Some of it quite scary at times. Mountain roads are just too much 🙂
