  •  yep, been there. . .done that. . . (6+ / 0-)

    and will do it again some day (when I quit scratching a poor fanny for lack of income. . .ha!). I've lived in New Mexico for many years and have been around the town, as it were. I see you have, too. Thanks for the directions, though; never had that route before. Now I do and I'll pass it along to othes. And the food at the Rancho de is still excellent. A nice drive, wonderful scenery and geology, and all things 'northern New Mexico" (and there is a huge difference between the south and the north (though not in that classic Yankee-Red demarcation). Glad you liked the diary and I hope you'll continue enjoying them because I have lots more to offer (that is, until the community says "enough is enough. . .get a job and earn some food money, Rich!"

    •  you thought about self-publishing a travel-guide (4+ / 0-)

      or two, via Amazon or some similar utility? You might make a little eating money ...

        there are many tomes, the larger ones, some of which I extrapolate somewhat downsized reading material for our audience-community, that will be circulated in such a way. Right now I am having too much fun writing these diaries to even bother. Eventually, I have to commit to some publishing interests out there. But not now. I decided I lucked out finding this niche market in our community and it relaxes me to feign the educator's role once more. . .but not wear the hell out of my knees doing it (and therefore stave off the VA's idea of rebuilding my knees after too many miles schlepping the trails with a heavy backpack. Then again, that's what I did for a profession for many years and got to see some mighty fine places, all of which comes down to direct source material and experiences writing these diaries. So, thanks for the suggestion, BlackSheep1. I'm on it. Just not now. As I said, composing these diaries is my strange way of enjoyment, while sharing, these days.
