Glenda’s Glimpses on the Road #4
May 7, 2013
We have to apologize to our kids. Hopefully they have not been worried about us. We are okay. Of course, by the time we can get this message to them, they will already know we are okay. You see, we are on the high plains of New Mexico. I mean high – 7000+ feet. It makes for cooler weather. We actually got to see some elk this morning. But elk can’t help us get word to the outside world.
Last night we stayed in Red Hill, New Mexico, population – 1. That wasn’t a typo. There is one gentleman who lives there. We had actually met him in Vernon, Arizona, at Midvale Station Market a few days earlier. We didn’t know where we were going to stay last night. This gentleman was talking to neighbors who live in the “suburbs” of Red Hill. However, there are more that live out there – maybe 15, 20, I don’t know. They didn’t tell us. They did give us some good insight into the area and we had a nice chat. Anyway, our gentleman friend said we could stay in his yard.
Now you know why we weren’t able to be reached. No service. Not even Verizon (which we don’t have) so we have been without service for two days. But there is hope. Just up the road about 8 ½ miles is Quemado, a town of 1500. We hear that they have some service – I believe even a café and RV park. Oh, I better get to driving to catch up with Jim – he is maybe 7 ½ miles from town.
