Hollingsworth Ranch Revisited

Heading out of Santa Fe………..

On July 17, we left Santa Fe to begin a 4,000 mile road trip over the next three months.  Wyoming, South Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona and back to New Mexico.  Made a recent re-acquaintance with a wonderful gal, Jeannie.  She shares my same spirit of adventure.  Willingness to seek new experiences.  Visit different places.  We truly enjoy each other’s company and look forward to the journey ahead.

First leg of the trip towing my Lance trailer is from Santa Fe, New Mexico to Box Elder, South Dakota.  We are heading to the land of the Lakota Sioux.  To revisit the land where my mother and her family grew up.  South Dakota.  I will establish residency in South Dakota by naming South Dakota as my new Domicile.

Jeannie and I will have a couple interim stops along the way.  Visiting old friends in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  And finally catch up meeting a couple of cousins on my Mother’s side of the family in South Dakota.
