Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

Yes, we are rollin' down the highway, different direction than our original plan.  We left Tucson yesterday afternoon after spending a couple of hours at LazyDays to have them match the wiring from the RV to the Lincoln so the lights worked while towing.  Purchasing a new vehicle in July, we needed to get everything in sync and in working order.

On the road at 2pm heading east to Las Cruces, NM.  Why Las Cruces?  Well, we only have four days to play, so Las Cruces is only a 4 hour drive from Tucson; get away, play a little golf, visit a couple of the local wineries and just kick back.

We got all settled in at our destination right quick.

And gave a toast for the first night.

Thursday morning brought new issues with the electronics on the motor home.  The electronic control panel froze up, so was on the phone with Newell for a good hour with the solution of them over-nighting a new panel.  Plus our furnace was not working with no solution until we take a trip to OK for our service.  Then on top of that, our internet satellite would not lock on and transmit the signal, so spent another hour on the phone with Motosat with no solution.  Will need to wait till we get over to Indio to hire a satellite repair to come and fix.

The only way we knew how to turn this day around was to play golf. So off we went.

We hit the links and play a round at Sonoma Ranch Golf Course, priced right with decent course.  

A view of the Organ Mountains off to the east provided a pleasant backdrop to the golf.

On the way back to the RV we stopped off at St. Clair wine tasting room and partook in several tastings. We were quite surprised that their wine was so good, or we tasted too much and it started tasting good.  Don't know which came first.  But we will find out went we uncork one of the 6 bottles we came home with.

Now we are settling in for an evening of BBQ corned beef brisket, watch the UA football game and uncork another bottle of wine (not in that order).

The adventure continues tomorrow.
