New Mexico is looking like a better place for me and my old iron every day ............

I hear that loud and clear Durango is a friggen mess anymore. It’s such a pretty place but the pot heads have really brung it down. New Mexico is a nice place, it’s pretty quiet and there’s lots of good people, food and scenic desert views. We like the outdoor life style, jump in a truck or Jeep drive to the top of a mountain and camp for a week type of thing, so we really like it down here. I don’t agree with the predominant political culture but as long as they leave me and my guns, and the oil fields that let me provide for my family alone I won’t complain too much.

Tim, thanks for posting that picture of home. As you know I was fortunate enough to grow up 5 miles south of Harpers Ferry on VA-671 (Harpers Ferry Rd.) The waterfall that is almost across from the gas station at 340-671 is really cool, my kids love to go down there. The creek that feeds it ran right by the house I grew up in. Such an amazing place, to this day it’s my New Mexican wife’s favorite place. We go at least once a year. The ghost tours that start at the church in the picture are pretty fun and they include lots of interesting history Lessons too. I sure do miss THAT part of the area and points to the west in the Shenandoah Valley, east... meh... not missing much there.
