Welcome To New Mexico

Posted in Uncategorized by Phil Russo on June 10, 2010

I know I have not been blogging as much as I had hoped to, but, we have been so tired you cannot imagine. Since we left Orlando at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday night most of us have not slept. It is now 2:33 p.m. Thursday in Orlando.

We just crossed the border into New Mexico. It is unbelievable. So was El Paso. Maybe it is because I grew up at the Jersey shore but the landscape keeps giving me chills. It’s just so beautiful. I cannot help but think about the people that first settled this area, and looked at those same mountains upon which I have been so fixated, and how wonderful it must have seemed to them. I always knew I’d like the desert but I am more sure now than ever. I am most surely moving to El Paso or Las Cruces when the opportunity presents itself. Nothing in my limited volcabulary will do justice to the place. Those that know me know that I am seldom at a loss for words; enjoy this Hoyt!

Everyone one our RV is in the highest of spirits, being 15 minutes from Las Cruces. We are looking forward to seeing Jerry and the crew from the Las Cruces Tea Party. They are fixing us some dinner and we are going to have a nice rally here. We are only six hours from Phoenix, our final destination, where hotels await us! For being at the edge of exhaustion and having driven through the night for two straight nights we are exceptionally happy and excited.

I will report back after the rally tonight. Stay tuned…
