More work at Habitat Home in Santa Fe

Saturday we had about 75 volunteers, friends and family gather for two ground breaking ceremonies at the Habitat for Humanity build site. It was a memorable time.

On Tuesday, we started putting up the walls at one of the two new homes.
We had a great day getting the walls plumbed, putting up firewall sheetrock and watching the house take shape.One of the new homeowners we saw on Saturday was on the job site today. She (Bianca) has volunteered over 400 hours and spent two years in the selection process to become a new Habitat homeowner.Mike & Bob, two friends from high school here in Santa Fe, were able to join Pam and I for lunch today at Lotta Burger. The green chili cheeseburger is still pretty good!Since we were close to the Rodeo de Santa Fe campground, they came over for a quick tour of the Roadrunner.I wanted to let you see the great folks that we have had the privilege to work with and get to know here in Santa Fe. We are all part of Habitat for Humanity's "Care-A-Vanners" RV group.

We have really enjoyed our time with the group and last night we went out to eat at Maria's New Mexican Kitchen in Santa Fe.That does it for this post of the Roadrunner Chronicles~if you have never left a comment on our blog, give it a try! We'd love to hear from you!


  1. Great job there, Randy, and it looks like you're both having a good time to boot!

  2. Terrific work, Randy & Pam! You two demonstrate such a great blend of true service and fun as you go. BTW, we had the chance to benefit from your article for Mt. Rushmore's evening lighting ceremony last night. Tonight is the last one of the season and we were so glad to have the chance to witness this very moving patriotic tribute. Thanks so much for sharing!
