New Mexico Quarantine Contradiction

A few days ago, I posted about the 14-day self-quarantine rule that the loony Gov. "Malevolent Michelle" Lujan Grisham imposed on people entering New Mexico.

The story has been picked up by RVTravel.com.

They wrote:
If you are traveling through New Mexico to or from another state, you may want to reroute unless you can pass through without spending even one night. Even if you only want to stay one night to sleep, you’re be stuck there by law for 14 days – and in quarantine the entire time. That means not leaving a hotel room/RV/rental unless for medical reasons. 
David Morgan, a spokesman for the New Mexico Department of Health, clarified that any out-of-state travelers planning to stay overnight in New Mexico must self-quarantine for at least 14 days or “for the duration of their presence in the state, whichever is shorter.” 
“If you are entering our state, and you are staying the night, you’re actually going to be staying for 14 nights, because you are a part of our self-quarantine requirement for anybody entering our state,” said Morgan.
I noticed something strange about the phrases (in bold) as had one of the readers (Fred) who posted this comment:
This article is total nonsense & contradicts itself. The spokesman for New Mexico Health Department clearly says “must self-quarantine for at least 14 days or for the duration of their presence in the state, whichever is shorter“. So, if you’re just travelling thru the state, you stay in your rv overnight & don’t enter any restaurants or stores. If you’re staying in a campground, you would register over the phone. If the duration of your stay is one night or two nights, & you don’t mix with anyone else, the health department is fine with that. There would be no need to avoid going thru the state. To state that your would be stuck there for 14 days, just because you’re passing thru the state, is disingenuous & totally misleading. Your claim would mean all truck & commercial delivery traffic into the state would have to cease. Another instance of “fake news”.
It is not the "article" that is nonsense and contradicts itself. It is David Morgan who spoke out of both sides of his mouth. The order does state, "whichever is shorter." Fred is right.

A Little Evening Drive

An hour or so after finishing dinner, since I had to put the Jeep back into the garage anyway, I decided to take a little drive to the entrance gate to Six Mile Canyon (same as I did the other day).

Again, the Jeep performed fine with no "hiccups" from the carburetor.

It is a nice pleasant evening and the drive was an enjoyable one. One thing I have noticed this year, the prairie dog population has been larger than the past two years. A number of them have met their demise on Whispering Cedars Road near the fire station. I've also seen a lot of them running across the road along Six Mile Canyon Road.

Well, at least their carcases aren't going to waste. Usually within an hour after becoming "roadkill", hawks and other birds of prey scoop them up for a meal.

Charlie Daniels Dies At 83

Above, Charlie Daniels in 2017.

It was just a couple of days ago that I read an open letter titled, "Don't Mess With The Second Amendment" in the current (June/July) issue of the NRA's American Rifleman. The author of the open letter was country legend Charlie Daniels.

Now, it has been reported that Daniels had passed away today.

From charliedaniels.com:
Country music and southern rock legend Charlie Daniels has passed. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member died this morning at Summit Medical Center in Hermitage, Tennessee. Doctors determined the cause of death was a hemorrhagic stroke. He was 83. 
Funeral arrangements will be announced in the coming days. 
About Charlie Daniels:
From his Dove Award-winning gospel albums to his genre-defining southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits, few artists have left a more indelible mark on America's musical landscape than Charlie Daniels. An outspoken patriot, beloved mentor, and a true road warrior, Daniels parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career and a platform to support the military, underprivileged children, and others in need. The Charlie Daniels Band has long populated radio with memorable hits and his signature song, "The Devil Went Down to Georgia." Over the course of his career, Daniels received numerous accolades, including his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Musicians Hall of Fame and becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Daniels helped to shine the spotlight on the many causes that are close to his heart. He was a staunch supporter of the military and gave his time and talent to numerous charitable organizations, including The Journey Home Project, that he founded in 2014 with his manager, David Corlew, to help veterans of the United States Armed Forces.

The music world has been hit hard within the last day or so.

First, it was the announcement of the passing of Ennio Morricone. And now this.

R.I.P.

Ennio Morricone Dies At 91



The world has lost one of the giants in movie music scoring.

Variety reported:
Oscar winner Ennio Morricone, composer of “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and “The Mission” and among the most prolific and admired composers in film history, has died. He was 91. 
Morricone died early Monday in a Rome clinic, where he was taken shortly after suffering a fall that caused a hip fracture, his lawyer Giorgio Asumma told Italian news agency ANSA. 
Shortly after Morricone’s death was confirmed, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte tweeted: “We will always remember, with infinite gratitude, the artistic genius of the Maestro #EnnioMorricone. It made us dream, feel excited, reflect, writing memorable notes that will remain indelible in the history of music and cinema.” 
The Italian maestro’s estimated 500 scores for films and television, composed over more than 50 years, are believed to constitute a record in Western cinema for sheer quantity of music. 
At least a dozen of them became film-score classics, from the so-called spaghetti Westerns of the 1960s, including “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and “Once Upon a Time in the West” to the widely acclaimed “The Mission” and “Cinema Paradiso” of the 1980s.

About That "Black Militia" At Stone Mountain

This photo of the "Black Militia" that showed up today at Stone Mountain Memorial in Georgia was posted at the Facebook page of the New Mexico Civil Guard (yes, I am a member).

I found the photo to be interesting and humorous.

Carrots For Christmas and a Drive

Above, this morning at the corral. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

After getting my Sunday morning chores done (i.e., laundry and cleaning), I took the Jeep out to the Flying J to pick up a few items.

After that, I headed back home to drop off the stuff I bought and get to some carrots for Christmas. I then headed down to her pen and fed her the carrots.

Above, yours truly and Christmas this morning.

When I was done with that, I decided to take a drive to the corral at the entrance gate to Six Mile Canyon. This is the furthest I've taken the Jeep since I put in a can-full of Berryman B-12 carburetor cleaner. It ran fine to and from the corral. I am making sure that the carburetor is sufficiently cleaned out before going deep into Six Mile Canyon. So far, it has passed all of my tests.

Above, looking north from the gate and corral. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

Once I was done with that, I headed on home as it was starting to get hot outside. It was 84° at the time. It is now near 90°.

I'll probably do some more driving later today.

The Winchester .30-30 Cartridge Still Chugs Along After 125 Years

Above, Winchester .30-30 cartridges. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

The big spike in sales of firearms and ammunition has been big news for the past several months, much to the chagrin of liberals. Gun owners and new gun owners are far less likely to vote for a political party who is out to threaten Second Amendment gun rights.

While this news has been out there, one article caught my attention.

Last year, I bought a pre-1964 Winchester Model 94 that is chambered in .30-30 ammunition. What caught my eye is that the .30-30 Winchester cartridge is still popular (it is the fourth biggest centerfire ammunition seller) despite it being a 125-year-old cartridge.

Above, purchasing my Winchester 94 at Ron Peterson Firearms in Albuquerque. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

Clarion Ledger reported:
Many rifle cartridges come and go. What's all the rage one day can easily fade away as it falls into disfavor among hunters. But one that has withstood the test of time and done so with more success than almost all of them is the humble .30-30 Winchester. 
Originally named the .30 Winchester Centerfire, the .30-30 was among the first cartridges utilizing smokeless gunpowder. It was introduced by Winchester in 1895 in its Model 94 lever action rifle which was the product of famed gun designer John Browning. Shooting a 160-grain jacketed bullet at almost 2,000 feet per second, it was a speed demon at the time. 
However, in coming decades, the little .30-30's performance would be eclipsed by popular calibers such as the .30-06 Springfield, .308 Winchester, .270 Winchester and too many others to count, but the .30-30 kept chugging along. 
According to Winchester, the light, fast-handling Model 94 has sold more than 7 million copies and when sales of other rifles chambered in .30-30 are thrown in, it is one of the most successful cartridges ever.

Along With RVs, Boat Sales Are Booming

Above, two new Coachmen Class C motorhomes in transit at the Flying J. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

The "pandemic" has not only caused a boom in RV sales, it has also caused a big surge in boats as well.

I have been seeing a lot of transporters with RVs and boats stopping at the local Flying J travel center lately. Interstate 40 seems to be a major east-west route for RV and boat manufacturers as they head towards Arizona and California.

According to the Sacramento Bee:
Boat and RV dealers have seen an unprecedented sales boom during the past few months, as people look for ways to cool off and have fun this summer while adhering to COVID-19 social distancing recommendations. 
“It’s been record-breaking,” said Bob Bense, the owner of Superior Boat Repair and Sales. “I’ve been in the industry for almost four decades and I’ve never seen anything like it.” 
According to the National Marine Manufacturers Association, personal watercrafts saw big sales increases this May: up 75 percent compared to 2019. Outboard engine sales also increased. And Discover Boating, an online guide to boat buying, saw a triple-digit jump in consumers searching for boats last month. 
“With boating restrictions lifted in all 50 states, and the COVID-19 response dictating where and how far people can travel, the forecast for boating this summer is looking bright,” NMMA representative John-Michael Donahue wrote in an email to The Sacramento Bee. 
RV sales are on the rise, too, said Monika Geraci, a representative from the RV Industry Association. Some dealers said they’ve seen 200 percent increases in sales, compared to the same period of time in 2019. And a recent survey about Americans’ attitudes toward travel found that 46 million people are planning an RV trip in the next 12 months.

Relaxed 4th of July

It was a relaxed Independence Day here in Jamestown, New Mexico. The temperature was warm (upper 80s) with some scattered clouds.

The day started out with a gathering of the gang at Roger's (before COVID-19 we would meet up at Denny's at the Flying J. We can meet up there, but there's a four-person per table limit. There's more of us than four.

Above, at Whispering Cedar Road. The house is where the flags are. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

The new area (or throw) rug I got last night at the Wild West Days Rodeo is now Sierra's. She decided to take it over this morning and has been enjoying it all day. I guess it's hers now.

Above, Sierra enjoying her new rug. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

I was going to go to the rodeo again, but the Mustang is acting up a little and I will need to get it tuned up, etc. before attempting any drive beyond Jamestown. I think it's the fuel injectors. It was fine after putting in Gumout fuel injector cleaner a week ago, but it slightly hesitated while on the road back home from Grants. I put more in last night after getting home.

Today, I confined my driving to the Jeep. It has been running fine since I put in Berryman's in the gas tank. So far, no problems.

So, beyond an occasional drive, I just stayed at home (mainly outside on the deck) relaxing.

More Wild West Days Rodeo Photos

As I mentioned last night, I went to the Wild West Days Rodeo in Grants, New Mexico and brought along my Canon Powershot. The photos from that camera were posted last night.

I also took some with my cell phone that I posted on Facebook while I was there.

Here's some of them:

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!

To celebrate, I am posting the great Ray Charles rendition of "America the Beautiful" from the 1984 Republican National Convention in Dallas, Texas. The convention closed following this performance.



I had not seen this (or any other video) of this performance until yesterday. I was an alternate delegate from California at this convention.

Above, yours truly at the 1984 Republican National Convention in Dallas.

It is interesting to note that this kind of performance would never be seen at any Democrat national convention. Wonder why that is?

Grants Wild West Days Rodeo

Above, after arriving at the rodeo grounds, I wandered around the horse stalls. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

This evening, I took a little jaunt over to Grants (about 45 miles away) for their Wild West Days Rodeo.

The rodeo started yesterday and continues through tomorrow. We had some rain during the start of the evening's events.

This evening (while I was there) consisted of "mutton bustin'" sheep riding by children in the 3 to 5 years of age. It is somewhat surprising that kids (boys and girls) that young are tough enough to endure such an activity, but they seemed to enjoy it.

Later, the program consisted of steer riding by youngsters a little older.

The opening ceremonies honored our armed forces as well as law enforcement. Among the law enforcement participants was Cibola County Sheriff (Grants is in Cibola County) Tony Mace. Sheriff Mace later came by in the bleachers and we chatted for a bit. He was with a group nearby and the topic of discussion was Gov. Lujan Grisham, he said.

Considering that most, if not all, rodeos in Gallup (at Red Rock Rodeo Arena) have been cancelled, I figured this would be my big chance to see a rodeo this season.

I brought along my old Canon Powershot camera since it has a good zoom lens. I took a few photos and they are below:

Is Travel Self-Quarantine Being Enforced?



The stupidity of New Mexico's governor in imposing a 14-day quarantine on anyone traveling into the state is just incredible.

As I said in a previous blog, it it tantamount to false imprisonment on people to force them to remain in the state if they are not infected and just passing through or just staying less than 24 hours. The woman is a lunatic.

Is it being enforced, or can it even be enforced? KRQE has an article on this.

They begin with:
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – With the Fourth of July weekend approaching, the governor is reminding us that anyone traveling to the state of New Mexico must self-isolate for 14 days. Is that rule being enforced? People said they understand that we cannot monitor every single person who travels to New Mexico, but they said the least we can do is man the self-quarantine information table at the airport. 
People are traveling to New Mexico. “We are coming from Providence, Rhode Island,” traveler Darren Ferrell said. “We are going to Albuquerque and Santa Fe.” 
The Albuquerque Sunport expects an average of more than 4,000 passengers a day this Fourth of July weekend. “We determined that it was time to go on vacation, and New Mexico is a good destination,” Ferrell said. “It seems to be one of the lowest infection rates in the country.” 
Even with the governor’s travel order in place requiring a 14-day self-quarantine for people arriving into the state, passengers said no one is taking it seriously. “I do not really think people are following it,” traveler Phyllis Duncan said.
If someone were to pass through New Mexico to go to another state (such as Texas, Arizona or Colorado) on a vacation trip, and they already paid for attractions and lodging in that other state before the order and are forced to remain in New Mexico for 14 nights, it would be likely that lawsuits galore would be flooding the courts.

Gov. Lujan Grisham Orders FALSE IMPRISONMENT For Out-of-State Travelers



Gov. "Malevolent Michelle" Lujan Grisham announced yesterday what amounts to false imprisonment.

WFAA reported:
FORT WORTH, Texas — For Penny Plavidal and her Fort Worth family, New Mexico has long been their refuge of choice; it's a popular vacation destination for lots of other North Texas families, too. 
"It just is a really great place for us to connect with the kids and get out of the city and just touch base with each other again," she said Thursday. "We go several times a year. It's probably one of our favorite places anywhere." 
Her family was gearing up for another three-night stay in the Land of Enchantment when a friend forwarded her a press release from New Mexico; Michelle Lujan Grisham, the governor of New Mexico, announced Wednesday that she was re-instating a 14-day quarantine for all out of state travelers. 
"If you are entering our state, and you are staying the night, you’re actually going to be staying for 14 nights, because you are a part of our self-quarantine requirement for anybody entering our state," said David Morgan, a spokesman for the state's department of health.

Why do I call this false imprisonment? If anyone enters New Mexico for even just an overnight stay in their RV, they have to remain in New Mexico for 14 nights, even if they will be leaving the state the next day.

Here's the definition of it (from findlaw.com):
False imprisonment occurs when a person (who doesn't have legal authority or justification) intentionally restrains another person's ability to move freely. This can also be called unlawful imprisonment in the first degree and is detailed in the penal code for your state.
According to the WFAA article:
Morgan said New Mexico hopes to let the order expire in a couple of weeks, but the virus will ultimately decide for them.

New Mexico Announces $100 Fines for Flouting Face Mask Rule

Above, yours truly at Denny's a few weeks ago. Photo by Russell Azbill.

Well, the little dictator is now going to fine businesses and individuals $100 for "flouting" the wearing of masks in public.

The U.S. News & World Report reported:
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Wednesday said there will be more aggressive enforcement of the state's public health order, including individual fines, to rein in rising coronavirus infection rates across the state. 
The Democratic governor said people who ignore mask requirements in public places can be fined $100 and that businesses that flout the health order will see workplace citations and misdemeanor criminal charges.
Too bad we can't fine her for not wearing a muzzle.

Stop the Renaming of John Wayne Airport

Above, John Wayne in The Searchers.

A petition has been started at Change.org asking the Orange County Board of Supervisors to keep the name, John Wayne Airport.

The petition reads:
The Orange County Board of Supervisors is considering renaming the John Wayne Airport and removing all likeness (Statues) of John Wayne at the airport, Due to remarks he made 50 years ago. 
John Wayne lived in Southern California for many years. He attended the University of Southern California where he studied law and played football. 
John Wayne had an incredibly successful entertainment career. He earned one Academy Award for best actor and was nominated three additional times and earned two  Golden Globe Awards for best actor. He lived in Newport Beach, California for several years until his death in 1979.   
His life was filled with success and honors. He earned the Congressional Gold Medal in 1979 which is given to citizens who make tremendous contributions to society and requires 2/3 Congressional approval, 1980 Presidential Medal of Freedom (posthumously by Democrat President Jimmie Carter) and in 1998 was awarded the Naval Heritage Award for his tremendous support of the US Navy during his entertainment career. \ 
John Wayne is so revered and appreciated he has an airport named after him, the Pioneer Trail in Washington named after him, John Wayne Parkway in Maricopa, Arizona and part of highway 347 in Arizona honors his name.    
Please join me in stopping this ridiculous, cancel culture move on behalf of the Orange County Board of Supervisors. Block them from removing John Wayne’s name and removing his statue from the John Wayne airport.  
Call,email, text and tweet the Orange County Board of Supervisors let them know how you feel about this idiocy.. Flood their social media and emails. Lisa A Blartlett is the 5th District Supervisor.  Let her know how you feel.  They need to know they serve the people NOT special interest cancel culture idiots !!!   
This petition got 20,000 signatures in ONE day and counting,, amazing !! Please reach out to any media connections you have.  OAN, FOX, OC Register and LA Times would be outstanding.  Out of the 50,000 supporters there has to be someone with connections. If we can get a major news personality to run this petition on their show we could hit a million and put huge pressure on the OC Board of Supervisors.  Marisa Wayne, The Duke’s daughter, has it on her tweeter.

Hitting The Road In Droves

Above, The Beast at West Entrance KOA in West Yellowstone, Montana. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

People are avoiding air travel and ocean cruises and are, instead, hitting the road in droves.

Personal safety concerns are moving people towards RV travel. Many of them are new to RVs and there are some challenges they should take into serious consideration.

Knoxville City View has an article on what people should be on the lookout for.

They begin with:
From Connecticut to California, RV dealerships are seeing an increase in both sales and rentals as the coronavirus keeps us apart. The same holds true in Tennessee.  
Leland Waggoner, owner of Chilhowee RV Center, has seen an uptick in sales since the governor lifted stay-at-home orders in the spring. “March and April are traditionally the start of our busy season,” he said. “So it may just be pent-up demand.” 
Certainly he thinks safety concerns are leading people toward RVs. “You have the safety of your own little cocoon —your own bed, your own bathroom and kitchen. People think it’s a safer way to travel. They don’t want to get on airplanes, and they’re hesitant to stay in hotels.”

More 2020 Yellowstone Lodging Opening This Month

Above, there's a chance that Old Faithful Inn will reopen later in the season. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

There's some good news coming from Yellowstone National Park.

Yellowstone Insider reported:
If you plan on a July-October visit, you’ll have more options when it comes to 2020 Yellowstone lodging, as concessionaire Xanterra plans on opening Lake, Canyon and Old Faithful Snow Lodge rooms for the rest of the season. 
So far so good when it’s come to COVID-19 mitigation in Yellowstone National Park, with the latest test results showing no positives from NPS and concessionaire employees in the latest period–adding to no positive results in previous testing, also. And with visitors flocking to the park at levels close to 2019 visitation levels in June 2020, it looks like park officials and concessionaires are balancing safety concerns with access. 
So, as Xanterra promised, we’ll see new 2020 Yellowstone lodging options come July, as offerings other than standalone cabins and cottages with bathrooms will be available.

Still closed are Grant Village, Old Faithful Inn and Roosevelt Lodge. There is a chance that they open later in the season. Keep your fingers crossed!

RVs For Road Trips: How To Choose The Right One

Above, Class C motorhomes on display at the California RV Show. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

Since the pandemic, vacation plans of many Americans have drastically changed. 

Gone (at least for the time being) are airline and cruise ship vacations. The pandemic has caused a surge in interest in RV travel.

Travel + Leisure has an article reviewing the different types of recreational vehicles and how to choose the right one for that next road trip.

It begins with:
So, you want to rent or buy an RV for your next road trip. But if you've done any research about recreational vehicles, you've probably found that there are a wide variety of options to choose from, and it can be difficult to decipher which one will best fit your needs. From massive Class A motorhomes to petite camper vans, some vehicles are great for families and large groups looking to set up camp in the great outdoors, while others are best for couples and solo travelers who are constantly on the go.

That's why we consulted the experts at Outdoorsy, an RV rental company with a wide variety of vehicles available across the country, about how to choose the right RV for your next road trip. First, consider where you'll be staying. Most vehicles available for rent will be compatible with RV parks and campgrounds, since they can be plugged into power. But if you're camping off the grid, you'll want to make sure your RV has a solar panel or standalone generator. You'll also want to consider how many people you're traveling with. Families and larger groups will likely want to opt for vehicles with more space and amenities, like Class A and C motorhomes. However, if you're traveling alone or as a couple, you'll find that camper vans and small towable trailers (like Airstream) offer just enough space. 
Below, we've broken down seven types of recreational vehicles that you'll want to take on your next adventure. The best part? Each of these RV categories is available to rent on Outdoorsy.
