Greetings from New Mexico.  Wow it has been a long time since I posted on the blog.

 Last week were were at Montreat Conference Center for the Annual Interim Ministry Consortium meeting.  Since I am the Coordinator, I had lots to do.  There were long days and short nights.  So no time to write on the Blog.  It is always good to see friends whom we only see once a year. 

We left Montreat on Thursday around noon and headed back to Peach Tree City, GA to pick up the camper at Paul's house.  On Friday we left to head south and then west.  Our first night out was was spent in at a campground in Long Beach, Mississippi.  We left there heading to Houston, TX where we spent the night at a Walmart near Humble, TX where our friends Ann and Bill live.  Ann and Bill picked us up at the Walmart and took us to their house before going to dinner at Papas Restaurant.  Then back to their house for coffee.  The weather turned cold and it was really cold that night.  We woke up to 28 degrees.  We were excited to find a Panera just tow blocks away for breakfast.  And the really great part was there was a Target  behind Panera with a really big parking lot.   That was the beginning of a really LONG day.   Our destination last night was Ft. Stockton, TX about 500 + miles away.  What a day we had.  When we left the hill country in Texas we hit rain, snow, sleet, and ice.  Luckily the roads were not that bad.   It was also very cold with a wind chill that made me think we were in the NORTH. 

Toady we are in Deming, New Mexico.  We arrived here around 5:00 p.m. The campsite here is really nice and I am glad we stopped.  Tomorrow we will be in Tucson. 

More tomorrow.
