Santa Fe, NM High 77 Low 46
Monday – we recovered. We had the kids come to our house for lunch and then sat and visited with them for a few hours. No more touring for us.
Monday afternoon, Tom and Dianne and Dave and Nancy pulled into our park. In fact Tom and Dianne got the spot next to us. We made arrangements to go to dinner. I got to choose the place.
The last time we were in Albuquerque we met up with Dave and Nancy and made plans to go to a Chinese restaurant. After driving around for almost an hour we never did find the place. I checked in with Yelp and picked the Zinc Wine Bar and Grill which was excellent.
But this time we wanted to try a different place. Checked out Yelp and Urban Spoon and decided that Pelican’s would offer a good selection and it got great reviews.
We would all agree with those reviews and have added this restaurant to those we would go to for a second helping.

After dinner we all went over to Tom and Dianne’s for ice cream. A wonderful evening.
When we left Grants, NM the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) for the truck decided to malfunction. The “service TPMS" light came on. Called On-Star and they ran a diagnostic and determined that nothing was wrong with the truck.
The big problem came when we locked the truck and then tried to unlock it with the remote entry. Seems the TPMS system an the remote entry are connected and if one doesn’t work neither does the other. So every time Jim would unlock the door with the key the alarm sounded until he could get the key in the ignition and shut it off.
Tuesday morning he headed for a Chevy dealership and a couple of hours later it was fixed. We got everything ready for travel on Wednesday. It was going to be windy so we wanted to get on the road in the morning before the winds picked up.
There are many things and places we didn’t get to see in Albuquerque but we needed to save something for the next time we come this way. The Madonna Tree is one of them.
70 miles later we are in Santa Fe for a couple of nights.
