Profile Information

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.

TWIN RIVERS CG-BATH, NEW HAMPSHIRE—We are in the White Mountains of New Hampshire tonight.  Today, Monday, was the last day of the Columbus Day holiday.  Not much noted (favorably, at least) in New Mexico, it is an observed 4-day holiday weekend here in much of New England.

The license plates in the…


Travel Bling and a Late Report from the Pop-Up

Posted on September 29, 2015 at 10:30am 4 Comments

PORT AUX BASQUES, NEWFOUNDLAND—MaryAnn and I have come over 5,000 miles from our home in Nob Hill on this road trip that has lasted a month so far.  Finally we stopped heading away from New Mexico and started back to Nova Scotia.

We had bought a trailer last summer, a short pop-up camping…

SAINT-JEAN-PORT-JOLI, QUEBEC—”, Hello!” she said as we walked into the restaurant.  It was almost ten o’clock and we were looking for a late breakfast.

How did she know we were not Quebecers?  Well, I’m not sure...but it has happened before.  There is something about the way we…


Adios Land of Enchantment, Hola The Wandering Life

NOB HILL—Always on the lookout for adventure, MaryAnn and I bought a small pop-up trailer last summer.  Called a “Hi-Lo”, the ceiling and walls lift up as a single unit to reveal a space large enough for living.

We tried it out once already on a trip down to Caballo Lake.  It worked well.  I really like…


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…

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
