Day 8

We all got up early this morning.  I only got sick 3 times in a short time frame.  Why?  No beer for weeks not even a cigar.  Nobody can figure it out except that I'm old.

We had hail the night before, not much.DSC_0003

We all, including Mark, left the Carson Forest  around 10 AM for Chama about 30 miles North. Kraig was almost ready.DSC_0001DSC_0012

We found a cheap campground in Chama.  Normally they run about $40 and up.  Ours is $25 (plus tax) for two people, FHU and a level pull thru.DSC_0015DSC_0016DSC_0017DSC_0019

For lunch we all went to Fosters (bar).  It was real good and a little pricey.DSC_0020

Carol wanted a Bloody Mary and got one...DSC_0022DSC_0021

Kraig watched with surprise.DSC_0023

We got back to our campground and clothes washing was next.  I think we had a couple of train loads of wash.

Later Carol, Mark and Kraig went out looking around and then dinner.  I was feeling a bit under the weather and didn’t go.

They went shopping/touring and then dinner at a place called Patty’s.  They said it was good.

We had a very quite night and was up at 6 AM again.

Day 7

We all woke up early, about 6:30 AM, as usual. Same quiet neighborhood as previous days.

About lunch time Kraig and I went to Chama, NM which is about 30 miles North of our Carson Forest campground.

Well, Chama is a small tourist town (kinda) that the old train stops in.  We ate at a place called Taco and it was a real bust for Tacos. 

We went back and settled in for a non-event day.  Kraig did fix us all dinner which was real good.

Retirement is sometimes doing nothing.

Day 6

How did your day start?DSC_0001

Here we are 50 miles south of our campsite and it’s 8 AM and we’re  inside here.  Nope, it’s not ME this time!  It’s Carol.  She needed some meds NOW so we went.  She got seen, we got meds and drove back.DSC_0005DSC_0008DSC_0010DSC_0015DSC_0019

Then Mark, Kraig and I decided to drive further into the forest.  The road, 10 miles back country, got a little rough in spots but the Jeep had no problems.DSC_0023DSC_0025DSC_0026DSC_0027DSC_0031DSC_0035DSC_0038DSC_0041DSC_0044DSC_0052

Retirement is going where ever with no time in mind.

Day 5

Carol is up by 6 AM and I follow shortly there after.  No, the sun is not up yet.  Carol said she went to bed at 8 PM last night is why she is up so early.  Kraig was the last one up.

How about this clean looking Jeep


I think that Kraig nibbled on thisDSC_0005-001DSC_0007-001

Here’s Mark’s rig.  He’s about 150 feet away from us.DSC_0008DSC_0009-001

We have a real good view out there about 100 feet.DSC_0010-001DSC_0012-001

I had one bulb out of four brake lights' go bad.DSC_0013-001

Kraig is setting out looking at the view.DSC_0014-001

Mark fixed us all some gumbo that was really good.DSC_0016-001

It started to do the Alaska drizzle around 5:30 PM.  We all went in and a quite night again.

Retirement is getting fat and not really worry about it until your clothes start becoming tight.
