Riley and I are in Albuquerque after a GREAT time with the Ladeze (the Lazy Daze ladies) up near Taos. We came to ABQ for an appointment at Statkus Engines. It’s time for some 60,000 mile service on my RV and Statkus is a very respected shop. They did a front end alignment for me last year after Balloon Fiesta and wrote up a quote for a bunch of 60k stuff, so am back and getting it done. Plus, I had a list of other things to check/replace/flush, etc. It’s so much work that it’s taken all day today, and will continue tomorrow. I said ‘I am living in it’ and they let me stay the night where they were working on it. So, here I am, on the lift where they finished at 5:00. At least it’s down on the ground!
My Lazy Daze friend Kathy was here today getting work done, too. Last night we had dinner in Old Town with Lisa, another Ladeze attendee.
Today Kathy and I toured around the Old Town Plaza and shops while killing time waiting for our RV repairs.
We will be in Albuquerque through the Balloon Fiesta (Oct 4th-12th). I have been organizing the Lazy Daze group at the Fiesta, so we will get there early and stay to the end. Hope to get some blogging done between now and the end of the month. I have lots of pictures to sort through from Santa Fe and Ladeze. More later….
By the way, I know I am severely lacking in pictures of Riley lately. So, here’s one from earlier this month, on a morning hike in the hills behind Iska’s place in Santa Fe.
