"Think text-messaging when you decide to take a lane....  (Really, officer, the bicyclist had fallen down and I couldn't see him in time to stop....)  As a side note - it would be great if San Pedro would continue to be 2 biking lanes,…"

"Whether you "take the lane" or "ride to the right", your best bet is to assume cars are trying to hit you.  (Drivers of) Cars hit each other all the time, even though a car is much bigger and easier to see, and much more…"

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.

Death on a Bike: Three thoughts.

NOB HILL—I have put well over 10,000 miles on my bicycle riding the roads of North America.  For the most part, I felt pretty safe.  Riding in Albuquerque, however, is a different story.

When it comes right down to it, a rider in the Duke City cannot depend on traffic laws for safety.  They are no protection…


Bugging Out: A Weekend At Bottomless Lakes

Posted on July 14, 2015 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Bottomless Lakes State Park was New Mexico’s very first state park, having been dedicated in 1933.  It is located about 12 miles east of Roswell off U.S. Highway 380, and then south on NM 409.

They say that cowboys tried to find the bottom of these lakes with their lariats and couldn’t, even when…


The South Valley: Big Plans, Lots of Traffic, Buckets of Paint

Posted on June 30, 2015 at 10:00am 3 Comments

I spent the last two months writing for NMMainStreet.  I loved it, but it involved writing 30 pieces in 60 days...9 of them while riding a bicycle across the state.  I covered New Mexico Gallup to Lovington and Raton to Silver City.  If I wasn't writing, I was driving. …

Touring New Mexico: Kit Carson's Cave

Posted on June 2, 2015 at 10:00am 1 Comment

One of the forgotten landmarks of old Route 66 is just northeast of Gallup.  It is a spectacular sandstone formation called Kit Carson’s Cave.  The entrance stands an imposing 50 feet high, while the inside goes back about 100 feet on an uphill slant.  At the far end there is a wall which encloses a live…

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
