    Video A brief visit to the White Sands National Park in New Mexico!

    @Daisy and I make a very brief visit to the White Sands National Park in New Mexico. The wind was blowing super hard so the audio isn't going to be that great, but it was a fun little stop that I recommend checking out if you're in the area.

    Ended up here kinda accidentally

    Hello, everyone. I didn't know I was looking for this, but it might be serendipitous that I found it. I've been retired for a few years, living on a small pension. I had to get the budget under control. I'm getting closer to the day when I'll be debt-free - yay! I've not done shitloads of...

    Following the ancients in SW New Mexico

    People have lived here for many thousands of years and some have left signs of their passing that have lasted through the ages. What were they trying to say? We can only guess. These were found while following the trail of the old Butterfield Stage Route in Grant and Luna Counties. Most of the...

    New Mexico Bliss in the Gila Wilderness

    I have just returned from two weeks in the wilderness to see the world on fire. Guess I'll be heading back soon as people all around are acting weird, angry and fearful. The Gila National Forest is immense. One hundred miles across from any direction, there is isolation in abundance. I left...

    Which rail lines are still active in Mexico?

    Seeking information on rail lines in Mexico. To be specific, I'm wondering about the line from Chihuahua to Los Mochis Sinaloa. Also is it still possible to ride south from Los Mochis south along the Pacific coast towards Puerto Vallarta? I'm assuming these are Ferromex lines.
