Where I Live:
Nob Hill
About Me:
My real name is Jon Knudsen. Unfortunately "Jon Knudsen" is both hard to pronounce and to remember. Also, Johnny _Mango seems to be a braver person than Jon Knudsen. And better looking. Maybe that's why Jon's GF MaryAnn calls him "Johnny" most of the time.

The Old Scot, The Flying Scot, & 3 Bike Trips To Keep You Young

Posted on October 14, 2014 at 10:30am 2 Comments

OBAN, SCOTLAND--”Get on your bike!”  That’s the advice Mervyn Dudgeon has for the young.  Mervyn was waiting with MaryAnn and me in Oban for the southbound train to Glasgow.  He had just spent a week biking and hosteling in the Hebrides, an island group off the far northeast coast of Scotland.  Mervyn Dudgeon is…

NOB HILL--Not too many of us were around when the Duke City Fix started its run.  As near as I can make it out, it was March 29, 2005.  In about six months,…


Touring New Mexico: The Kelly Mine

Posted on September 16, 2014 at 9:30am 1 Comment

The Kelly Mine and its townsite, located just three miles south of the town of Magdalena, was once home to 3,000 people.  Its two hotels were so crowded they rented out rooms in 8-hour shifts.  According to an 1883 news article, two hundred wagons were employed hauling silver and lead ore out of the Kelly down to…

With Robby on the Cerro Blanco Trial

TAJIQUE, NM--Last month my grandson Robert Bennett, biking partner Mike Moye and I decided to hike to the top of the Manzano Mountains.  I have used this trail several times before and it has a special place in my heart.  I guess it comes from having done it so often that it feels like an old…

Thanks for your blog about the backwardness of UNM when it comes to education and funding. :) On another note, many profs at UNM have little slips of paper that say, "I make ___ days of the football coach's salary to educate the students at UNM." Generally in the 20's or below...

Thanks Johnny. I'm always pleasantly surprised when I go 'home' and vist the Roswell Museum and Art Center. Being from there, I've always been a Peter Hurd fan and it's nice to see more art in Roswell outside of the alien murals!

Hey John. Great to hear from you! I am glad you contacted me. I just changed jobs and am staying a lot more local to town after 4 years of pretty constant travel. I am a member a local computer user group that will meet on DukeCityFix so I figured I would join, but did not expect to immediately find a few blasts from my past. Good times! I still have many fond memories of "Roach City" and Monte Vista...

I looked over you blog from your cycling trip. That looked awesome.

Wow, Jon. It was so good to see you with Doris. Your house looks wonderful. It looks like you. Take care. I hope to see you soon. Hopefully, I will have a good year. One never quite knows at Mental Vista given its cast of characters. Carri is working as an events organizer for Richard Romero. Love, Holly
