Operation Desert Commute

Well, we’re all moved out into the desert on the western edge of Albuquerque near Ventana Ranch.  We traded a convenient location for a bucket o’ square feet.  (Price per square foot is inversely proportional to convenience of the location.)  Now to pay…I’m still trying to figure out a way to commute.  I can easily ride my bike 5 miles downhill to the bus in the Blue Line Rapid Ride bus in the morning, but can’t really ride it 5 miles uphill in the evening…it’d prolly take too long.  I may end up getting a scooter, but I haven’t had time to mess with it yet.

The new house is going pretty well, aside from some A/C problems that need to be sorted out by the builder (DR Horton).  Also, it’s a requirement that all new houses have tamper resistant outlets like this.

(The video lies about ease of use…I’d call the outlets “plug resistant”.)
