Organ Pipe National Park

About Me

I purchased "Sadie''s House On Wheels "in late 2007 and loved traveling in a motor home so much that I went on the road full time in late 2008. I started writing this blog to help me remember all the wonder places I have been and it allows me to share those places with my family and friends. Summer of 2013 I decided to hang up the keys for a while and moved back into my stick house. After nearly two years, I am on the road again.

Good bye to Organ Pipe ( March 16)

Full Moon over Twin Peaks:

I can't believe the last post I made was back in February.  Not a whole lot has happened, but it has been way to too long.  So, I hope to catch up everyone in the next few blogs.  In all honesty, internet connections have "sucked" but that is no excuse.

So, I continued to work on the buffelgrass project in Organ Pipe without Joel.  His leg/knee/back was bothering him too much to walk, but I was able to hook up with Justin, an Americor Intern and we continued the search and destruction of the buffelgrass. (the park would not let me out in the field by myself). Unfortunately, Justin also had other projects to work on as part of his commitment and it turned out that after a short  time he could not  accompany me out in the field.  I worked  on some mapping projects with Joel and helped out in the nursery but by mid-March there were very few projects available for me to work on  and  I elected to leave Organ Pipe a few weeks early.  Joel stayed on, working in maintenance repairing picnic tables and what ever.

 I stopped in Tucson for a few days  to load up on  supplies and do some shopping before heading to Tierra Amarilla, NM as the nearest grocery store  is more than  a 40 mile round trip from the ranch.  My son, Conlan lives on a 360 acre  ranch with girlfriend Gayle near Tierra Amarilla. The ranch is only 3 miles from  El Vada  State Park and Lake Heron State Park is only a few miles to the north...can you say "out in the middle of nowhere?!!"

Stay tuned for pictures of four legged grand children and scenes from the old west.
