This week was all about walking the dog and errands for my son. We did get a quick trip to White Sands, a place definitely worth seeing if there's a chance. Warning though, we went later in the afternoon for the sunset while it was still almost 100 degrees. There's picnic table shade, otherwise you … Continue reading All’s Well in Las Cruces & random mom thoughts
What an interesting travel day, a first time for this one. To get to El Paso, it was your usual 2 flight trip with no delays. Got the window seats both times, short flights. From Phoenix to El Paso the woman in the middle seat not only took both arm rests (which she should, sucky … Continue reading Just call me “Fernando”
On my way to El Paso to then hop in a rental car for Las Cruces, New Mexico. San Jose seemed to be the cheapest flight, not the smartest choice of airports from where I live. My H dropped me off way too early to avoid the nightmare commuter traffic down here. With hours to … Continue reading Chill’in @ SJC
It finally caught up with me, down for the count. It could actually be allergies and exhaustion from the super bloom too?? It's so beautiful out, but with the allergy season that's going to be huge I'm afraid to go outside! So what have I been up to since I haven't been able to blog? … Continue reading Too much road time
Not the best time of year to travel through here, better than last week when the Amtrak train got stuck in the snow for 3 days. It rain/snowed on my drive, making it easy to get over the passes that were either closed or chain controlled last week too. This is my first trip ever … Continue reading Eugene, OR

My route from Las Cruces was Santa Fe, Farmington (don't recommend), Four Corners, Monument Valley, Lake Powell, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Mammoth, then home. We had an … Continue reading Planning next adventure!!
It's been pouring in LA all week, with no plans to get back to NorCal on my journey I figured the best thing to do is have an adventure and take the train back. I love trains, a friend of mine took 13 hours getting back over the Grapevine on I-5 - normally a 5 … Continue reading Stuck on a Train
Usually I don't talk to many people when I travel. I wouldn't call this traveling right now, I've been here a bunch to see my son with a little bit of a routine going when I'm here... Walk the dog, grab whatever my son needs while I'm here, lunch, piano, then latte. The dog will … Continue reading Stranger Danger
