Back in Albequerque

Blog Posts

I didn't think I'd be driving on these roads so soon after Rachel and I drove from Maryland to California. We've recognized a number of places we either passed by or stopped at back in July. It's looking like our group is going to recapitulate our western journey even further with a detour to the [...]

What happened here?

Blog Posts

When we put the chicken away last night the bowl was fine. This afternoon we got it out for lunch and found this scene of devastation. Especially odd is that it looks like it’s missing a whole piece, but we didn’t find any yellow plastic sections anywhere. Hrm… Anybody who was at my [...]
