Well today is packing up day, I'll be leaving in the morning for Elephant Butte State Park in Truth or Consequences "T or C" New Mexico.
At least I think I will, I was looking at the weather forecast this morning and to my surprise Wednesday May 4 will be summer in Colorado. I know that sounds strange but sometimes that's the way Colorado is. The winter will drag on and on to the point where you think it will never end, and then one morning you wake up and it's 70° and summer, spring happened overnight while you were asleep.
So what that means is I can go to Colorado anytime after the fourth and not have to worry too much about snow. I had planned on staying in New Mexico a little longer but now I can head back to Colorado without having to stop and spend the night every 50 miles to avoid getting there too early.
I've been looking forward to this summer for three reasons. One is to see my family in Colorado, I miss them all a lot and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again. Another is to try and take a trip up to Oregon to visit the Northwood factory that makes the Arctic Fox. and last but not least, I wanted to buy a Yamaha wr450 motorcycle to hang on the back of the Arctic Fox so I could explore more back roads, and have another way of getting around besides my GMC truck.
I'll be glad to get back to Colorado, I think it will always feel like home to me even though my real home is wherever I happen to be, Colorado is still my legal residence.
