Roadrunner at Cochiti Lake

The last couple of days it has been raining hard at the campground. When a motorhome pulled out on Thursday it drove near the center of the dirt road and had mud up to its axle at a sewer junction. The coach didn't slow down and 'bounced' out.

The camphost and front office were notified about the big hole and they got right on it. Less than 24 hours later the maintenance crew was out there with a backhoe and tamper. I was very impressed at how quickly they responded and what looked to be a very good repair job.While they were doing that, we packed up and departed. We stopped at Reid and Amy's house and gave a quick tour and then went to our Army Corps of Engineers site at Cochiti Lake.
We were able to pick a spot on a loop that was pretty good. No water or sewer but it has 50 amps. The scenery near the campground is great.
We settled into our site and got a visit by Bob and Judy. They have been full time RVers for about three years and are about to move into a house they bought in Cochiti. I have followed them for over a year on their blog and have watched them travel back and forth from Pennsylvania, through Florida and back out here to New Mexico. It is pretty neat meeting people in person after following them online.

Reid and Amy are joining us for a couple of days and are staying with us in the Roadrunner. We had another great dinner. Pam fixed fish (tilapia and salmon), sweet potatoes and coleslaw. After dinner we went for a nice walk in the cool evening breeze and wrapped up another day in the life of the Roadrunner Chronicles. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. It is great that you met more RV-Dreamers.
