We've been in Albuquerque for about a week.  We come here to visit my moms sister who is 93 years old so we try to touch base with her several times a year.  We took her out to lunch twice while here, once to my favorite Thai restaurant and to Chinese the other time.  She is doing well and we had a nice visit.
Old building in Mountainair, NM

We spent two nights in Monzano State Park outside of Mountainair.  The day before we checked in,  a woman had gone missing from her campsite and they had spent the day and night before looking for her.  They found her body the next day because her dog, who was with her, was barking up a storm and one of the searchers heard him.  Sadly she had died from exposure as it was into the 30's at night.  The energy around that place was very 'heavy' so we decided to leave and go on towards Albuquerque.

While in ABQ we stayed south of town in the Isleta Casino RV Park.  It proved to be a great location, about 10 miles from town and far enough from the freeway that we didn't hear any traffic noise.  But it is right next to the railroad tracks which in most cases is a really bad place to be especially anywhere along interstate 40 but here it turned out to be a good thing.  Because we saw and learned about the RailRunner. 

We rode the train on Saturday, going from the Isleta Pueblo
station in the south up to Santa Fe and back again
 not getting off till we got home.  The whole trip was about 4 hours.

Good by Rail Runner, we had fun.

We're leaving ABQ in the morning headed south towards Elephant Butte and Caballo to meet up with some other Solo RVing Sisters.

See you down the road.

Someone asked if we had smoke alarms and such in the rv.  Yes we have 2 smoke alarms in addition to these other two. 

This is up near the ceiling, checking for Carbon Monoxide.  
This one sits sideways on the wall, the white carpet is on the ceiling. 

This one is near the floor sniffing for leaking propane and it is hard wired into the electric 12 volt system and if that system gets low it will start beeping to tell us that we don't have enough electricity for it to work.  It was this alarm that alerted us in February, to the fact that we were having electrical problems.  When it started beeping in Feb. I had to take those screws out and unplug it to get it to stop.  It was doing its job.  And by the way these alarms only last about 5 years and then they should be replaced.  This one is about 6 months old.
