A Little Bit of Albuquerque

We had a short drive to Albuquerque from Gallup on Tuesday morning.  I like those kinds of days.   We arrived at the Kirtland AFB FamCamp and found a good site without any issues.

We were stationed here from 1988-1992 and I grew up in Santa Fe.  Lots of memories around town and we love coming back here to check things out.  And my twin brother and his wife Amy live here.
They have had a small business for the last 35+ years:  Environment Control.  We have already gotten together a couple of time for dinner at their place.  Pam makes it a point to make dinner and take it over to peoples place if it is feasible.  We hate to come see people and then have them feel as if we are there to freeload.  Moochdocking is a another story but we hate to freeload.

While in Albuquerque there are alway two places we like to go eat -- part of the local/regional cuisine:
Frontier Restaurant - This is one of the most unique and fun places we know of.  You can be standing in line to get a breakfast burrito with green chile or one of their huge cinnamon rolls and see guys in suits and ties.
Or folks that look like they haven't eaten in a few days.  College kids or city workers.  It is a great place to people watch and the food is outstanding.  Pure New Mexico.

Another fun one we try to eat at is Blake's Lota Burger.
They have outstanding green cheeseburgers.  We grew up eating those and they are yummy.  A little on the spicy hot side--but a great way to get your Hatch green chile fix!

We have some projects to do around Reid and Amy's house and maybe even will find time to do something on their new-to-them 1976 Scotty trailer.

They have only had it for a couple of days and are pretty excited about its potential!  Have you every heard of these?
It's in good shape although there are a few things that need to be updated.  But what 38 year old trailer doesn't?

That's all for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles -- thanks for joining us!
