Long Day of Driving

Thursday, March 15, 2007

sunny 0 °F

We pack up and leave Guadalupe NP. It's a day of driving, ending up driving to Alamogordo, NM (near White Sands National Monument).

The drive included crossing the Sacramento Mountain Range and there was snow at the top of the pass, so we pulled over and let Joe play in the snow for awhile:

We stopped at the New Mexico Space Museum near White Sands but didn't go in since it looked REALLY BORING, especially after spending a day at the wonderful Houston Space Museum. But we did go to the IMAX theatre next door to see a movie about the history of cowboys. Good movie....interesting. The IMAX theatre only held 100 people at most, so the seats all leaned back to watch the movie -- very comfortable -- I could have taken a nap if the movie would have been boring :-)

The RV park we pick out is fine, but the campsite they give us is a really hard site to back in. Lots of obstacles to try to avoid. It wasn't so bad that it took so long to get into the spot, but we had several people watching (helping?) us. After a few minutes, I just stood back and let Jere and the guy who insisted on helping him get into the spot. The guy kept telling me what Jere needed to do and I just smiled and told him "I just make sure he doesn't hit anything". His wife smiled and said it's always best for the wife to say as little as possible when parking an RV :-)
