We just arrived in Carlsbad New Mexico now, where we will stay for the duration of this trip. However, on the drive here, the rear air suspension dumped and we were riding on the frame stops.
Once I climbed under the coach, I saw the rear air valve arm had become detached, so after a quick repair we were on our way again. It’s good for something to break every now and then to remind Susan that she really should keep me around.
Big Bend Was Amazing
On the drive west we spent a couple of days exploring Big Bend. It’s hard to believe I’ve been a Texan of 50 years and nobody ever said, “Danger! get your butt to Big Bend, its amazing!” So now I’m saying it to all of you. It really is a remarkable place, and we will be back.
I want to thank Lars, my friend and fellow EO member who suggested we stay in Marathon and explore the park from there, as well as for his suggestions for things to see.
Below are some of our favorite scenes from Big Bend:
