Pines Canyon. all wheel drive road that has been testing our new family car. we had lined up a 2 mile hike but around .5 miles into the hike the kids found a juniper tree climbing ready and that was the end of the hike and the beginning of the monkeying. pictures can attest to that. now I am hoping to make it to balanced rock and Eulalia wants to go to McDonald Observatory, 100 miles from here. and we have met Bob Klein and his family this morning near the first mile of the Lost Mine trail. according to Pablo and Marta this is the best day ever!

Visiting Santa Elena Canyon

Santa Elena canyon runs along the border. We were on the US side all the time ;). And thanks to sugar the kids did all right. 6 miles before lunch. we saw a tarantula as big as my fist. played in mule ears spring. searched for volcanic rocks, olivine mainly. and then one mile after lunch.

and today, horse back riding and canoeing “en el rio grande”. awesome Christmas.

POS a la venta

Our POS is for sale. we trade it for a Mazda.

http://m.jeffhaasmazda.com/s.p?sellerId=1166405&f.c%5Bmake%5D.v=Volvo&f.c%5Bcondition%5D.v=Used&srch=true&p=rzNyzyxuT6Z0&m=b&nopsc=true&sId=1166405&postSortType=NO_SORT_TYPE&sessionToken=&lid=#listings

this car was a lemon or worse, a trophy wife/husband. the car looks slick and sexy but it is high maintenance. the freaking AC broke on the way to the dealer going to buy the Mazda… in December! and I have to say that it was the second time the AC broke. engine problems, cabin filter problems, wheel alignment problems, fuel pump problems… do I need to go on? a real POS.

save yourself the trouble. buy a bemmer.
