Cross Country Trip (Day 08) – Santa Fe

We passed the 2,000 mile mark!

Well actually, we’ve complete just over 2100 miles as of today...
- I got my first 2000 behind me
- Fay’s got her first 100!
Between driving below the speed limits with our towing, and wasting a little more time along the way, our travel time is taking a bit longer than I anticipated. Since we have a long way to go, we decided we’re going to have to do some longer driving days along the way. So today we bit the bullet and did an 11 hour day.

It was a long one, but it was worth it. We finally got out of Texas (you know, that state is just way too big) and settled into Santa Fe, New Mexico for the night. We’re now starting to see some cool scenery and our first real mountains of the trip. We got settled into our campsite here before dark and I got to see a great sunset over the distant mountains. Fay on the other hand, was inside visiting with another Casita owner and missed it.

Tomorrow we have a short trip up to Pagosa Springs, Colorado and will meet up with an old college buddy of mine for the day. Then the long haul up to Vancouver. We have no planned stops along the way and will play it all by ear. Neither Fay or I have ever been through this part of the country so it should be really great!

After having spent most of our adult life in Orlando, my wife Fay and I moved to Knoxville, TN in 2020. We are loving the change of seasons and being near the mountains. Plus, this part of the country is loaded with great places to camp. 
 
We camped years ago with a pop-up camper, but got serious about it when we purchased our Casita in 2014. There was a lot to learn as we started traveling with it, and a lot of conflicting opinions on line. That's when I decided that creating a website would be a good retirement project. I started tinyTowable.com to share things we've learned along the way that have worked well for us in hopes that the information would be of help to others.
 
However, since moving to Tennessee, I've gotten involved with new hobbies (you can check some out on my personal website at https://www.softrite.com) and we haven't camped very much. So, at the end of 2023, I made the tough decision to stop updating this website.
