              We are Grand parents again ! ( number 8)Ya hoo !!!! Daughter number 2 had her 3rd child today a baby girl at 7:35 this morning . Every one is healthy and doing well, She is 7lbs 5 oz and this photo was taken when she was less than 1 hour old . Wow what a cutie, Are we happy, yup you betcha. Can't wait to see her in the spring. But we have been getting lotsa pictures sent to us, bonus ! Love technology ! That is our big news for the day, all the rest of this posting is not so important anymore.
               The early morning that we always do and more wonderful weather. My first walkabout before 7 am I passed by these 3 men in hunting gear looking through some high powered binoculars at the mountains. I stopped to chat for a few minutes and they were hoping someone was leaving today. I say's hey we be gone in an hour and you can have our site. Most of these are first come first served. They were happy campers.
       These guys are hunting the Siberian Ibex that they have tags for originally from Asia and are really flourishing here in the mountains around this area. You can check them out HERE almost like Mountain goats that cling to the shear mountain cliffs in this area.
Ryan one of the hunters that moved to our site
      We secured our coach and moved out just after 7:30 am stopped at the dump station and on the road by 7:45 heading to Arizona.
the long horns by the side of the road to say goodbye
love seeing these guys here
        Heading west on I-10n as we have done many times before, the usual warning signs about dust storms, and we have seen a few over the years. Clear sailing today, bonus !
      After fuelling up at the Flying J in Lordsburg we crossed into Arizona. Where we will spend most of our winter months wandering about the desert .
love the decorative overpasses here
        Just before Benson stop at the Texas Canyon rest area, for stretch and make a nice light lunch.
love the rock formations here
        Just 20 minutes later we arrived in Benson , topped up our propane and down the road the Super Lube Plus to get our coach serviced as we have done almost every year for the last 11. No appointment needed and we were taken in to get a lube , oil and filter done on our coach. Tom the Manager has been here every year and welcomed us. These guys are very thorough they do it right!
they can take rv's up to 12 ft and ours in 11ft 9 in.
no problem
      Just 20 minutes down the road we arrived at Quail ridge TV resort and check in just after 1:30. With our AOR membership only $9.00 a night plus electric, last year electric was only $1.25 for a week, we use our solar to save and it works wonderful.
all set up just after 2 pm and relaxing in the shade , 78F

    Then just after 8:30 am we headed into Deming to check out the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum for their website click HERE  . And what an mazing museum this is! We are not museum people but this place just blew us away . It was built in the early 1900's and was used for many purposes over the years. Was an armoury etc.. and in the late 1970s  it was taken over as a museum, they have been working on it since then, all done by volunteers. Admission is free and they ask for donations. After our tour we sure had to make a donation.
