    Just saw this one for the first time! Very interesting!! Was looking for some older ones that you said you were reading on….but couldn’t find any? Maybe you ought to start with your latest posts and work backwards? LOL

  • From Charlie on Artifacts

    Seeing these artifacts being destroyed by stupidity, carelessness and sheer selfishness is heartbreaking. These objects, like my Mother and Father’s favorite chair serve as constant conduits to my memories. The inability or unwillingness to see that some inanimate object might have great importance to another and is therefore a target of physical abuse and ruin is so hard to take, especially from a member of the family. My brother-in-law is an ass and I won’t forget or forgive.

    When I was still in abq. I visited the EP library a few times and it was very interesting! Gotta love EP….right there on the front lines!

      It was a good celebration of his life and times. I hadn’t realized how popular his dispatches were from the front. He was loved and admired particularly by the soldiers he wrote about.

  • From on Hermit's Lakes, Colorado

    This lake looks similar to Brown lake where Neal and I had such good luck years ago with the fly and bubble rig! Ask Richard if he knows the Brown lake?

  • From on Tiny House

    My RV has less square feet than these tiny houses! And I’ve traveled in my RV for about 6 weeks before….. with no problems! I could see myself someday in a tiny house. …..will it happen…..probably not, but I think I could adjust to it! Just sayin! Good post! Lol

    2019/08/22 at 3:47 pm
    • From scott on Tiny House

      They looked pretty roomy……plenty of room for someone that doesn’t need a lot of space. I’m still wrestling with the dynamics of finding a place to park them and having sewer electrical water hookups etc. RV’s make sense too but for extended periods of time these tiny houses would be worth looking at.

    I once looked into buying one of the dilapidated houses in Madrid…but decided not to! Lol

    • From scott on Mineshaft Tavern

      it has made some progress since those days but it is still rough and tumble. the only gold and silver is what’s in the wallets of tourists.

  • From Alan on Morning Walk

    I remember hiking up that canyon with dad and brothers years ago!

    2019/06/25 at 4:04 pm
    • From scott on Morning Walk

      it is still a great hike. the old concrete stone dam is at the end of the arroyo and then you climb some rocks to go deeper into the canyon. alex and i hike this area at least twice a week. haven’t seen deer for a while but know they are watching us…..

  • From Charlie on Kid Sculpture

    That statue is an affront to feminists everywhere and must be destroyed immediately. 🙂

    2019/05/25 at 10:44 am
    • From scott on Kid Sculpture

      It is a great sculpture. I guess it will eventually be torn down and replaced by a vending machine or a bike rack. Till then, it is a good piece of art and the themes are pretty much on target.

    You really meet the people and see what the countries you visit are about…not just the tourist traps! Sounds like your dollars go pretty far down there.

      seems your comments are getting to us fine…. I’ll talk to the tech guy about it.

  • From Alan on Arturo Fuente Cigar Club

    Looks like the Fuentes have a really nice club there…..too bad you couldn’t tour the growing fields and see the dozens of rollers they must have working there! Nice post!

    • From scott on Arturo Fuente Cigar Club

      Next time down I will stay in A different part of the country, maybe Santiago. It is a nice club but I don’t understand why they don’t have one in the Zona Colonia.

    hello traveler.

    • From scott on Dominican Republic

      will explore Santo Domingo a few days – the Zona Colonial. It will remind me of Old Town in Albuquerque or the square in Santa Fe. shorts weather here. we don’t like snow at Scotttreks.

      Hi pat – thanks for dropping by. New Mexico weather is as hard to predict as the state is.

  • From Scott Lafon on I Was Here

    at first i thought it was written with a finger too but the letters seemed too straight and sharp. im still not certain they didn’t use something more pointed than a finger. in going back i see the idea is a distraction so it has been eliminated. It was a great little side trip sold by that guy on the street when we were walking to get something to eat.

  • From Charlie on King for the Day

    If I were King for a Day, I would fill the prisons with social justice warriors and foul-mouthed Hollywood celebrity malcontents who threaten the President of the U.S. on a daily basis. I once went to the old Albuquerque Airport, at the height of the Vietnam War, to protest Richard Nixon’s arrival. Once the doors of Air Force One opened, all I could see was the President. I realized that it didn’t matter who was the President at the time; I had respect and awe for the office of the President. There was no protest from me, only a great appreciation that I could see my President “in-person” and in”living color”. What happened to supporting our elected leaders, whether we voted for them or not?

  • From Charlie on Mickey's New Employee

    I hate the kiosks. Sharon and I encountered one in Maui, when we were looking for a dinner that wouldn’t cost us $50 (or more) at the tourist traps. I fiddled with the damnable machine for a few minutes, without results. Sharon, being more patient and more technologically advanced than her Luddite husband, solved the mysteries of the machine and we got our dinners. However, there were no views of the ocean, no girls in bikinis, no waiters asking if our dinners were delicious. The customers seemed satisfied though. One couple played a card game at their table and at another, small, quiet children were enjoying their night out with mom and dad. Instead of candles at our tables, our food was illuminated by harsh fluorescent lights, exposing all of our physical flaws. Still, the fact that the food was a lot cheaper than at the hotel we stayed at made the evening a success. Thank God our dinner wasn’t dependent on my skills navigating the kiosk. May it rot in Hell.

        Those were crazy times, the 1960’s, and it’s crazy now too. Thanks for the memory of a special moment and what it triggered in you. That is what Scotttreks loves.

    Lol, didn’t know you’d be writing a spot on our outing! It’s a tough little course but I always enjoy getting out on it!

    • From Scott Lafon on Golf in a Cow Pasture

      thanks for dropping by…… I add posts whenever they come to mind. it is a tough course because of the obstacles built in to its location and design.

    These clouds look a little like what Berta called buttermilk clouds, but not quite! Lol. Maybe they are a cloud seeding experiment?

    • From Scott Lafon on Up a Creek

      Always good to revisit the ranch. Your Grandfather and our Aunt made it a great place to be in the summer. They were very kind. Lots of memories on the creek. We didn’t catch much but it is still peaceful around the water. Thanks for stopping by Scotttreks.
