A Quick Solo Jaunt To New Hampshire

At the end of February, I had the opportunity to return to New Hampshire for a visit. The main reason for my trip was to accompany the auditions at the NH Professional Theatre Auditions, but I managed to squeeze in a social night with the Actorsingers teaching a couple of songs, many outings with friends and family, returning to play a church service at the Congregational Church of Henniker as well as a few online voice lessons.

It was such a busy and fun trip. My friends and family were incredibly generous, and I had amazing meals, hugs and conversations. People truly went out of their way to spend time with me, and those conversations and the love have continued to fuel me since then.

Thank you so much to everyone who made time for me, and my sincere apologies to those I didn’t have time to connect with. I look forward to seeing you all on a future visit. The Puritan, Manchester, NH | Ross and Jamie Adventure

The Puritan Backroom does gluten-free very well.

Much love from the Southwest!

Visiting the New Mexico Museum of Space History

The New Mexico Museum of Space History is a must stop for those with an interest in space or history or both. It’s an interactive museum you’ll enjoy whether you’re six or sixty. Don’t miss it!New Mexico Space Museum, Alamogordo, NM

Ross and I recently spent a month living outside of Alamogordo, and my number one to-do while there was a visit to this museum. Ross was a little more on the fence, but since we both loved visiting the John C. Stennis Space Center and it had been two years, I convinced him and we headed there.New Mexico Space Museum, Alamogordo, NM

The first thing you’ll notice when you pull in is that everything is built into the hills, on a hill. It’s really pretty. Second, you’ll notice a planetarium (which we didn’t see). And third, you’ll notice the distinctive building housing offices and the Space Museum. Outside are several exhibits, so even if you don’t pay to go inside, it would be a fun stop…at least if you enjoy taking your photo next to giant spacecraft like I do.New Mexico Space Museum, Alamogordo, NM

Once you’ve gotten your fill of photo ops, head inside. Admission is $8 for adults, and I thought that was pretty cheap for what you get. You can also purchase a joint ticket if you’ll be watching a Planetarium movie while you are there.

Once we paid for our tickets, we took the elevator to the top floor. I loved the layout of this museum. It’s built with sort of a forced perspective, where you walk around the top floor and then walk down the ramp, through part of the Hall of Fame, until you reach the next floor. Then you repeat that process several times. I found it to be really effective, and it meant I was much more interested in reading about the Hall of Fame members than I would have been if we’d tried to take it in all at the same time.New Mexico Space Museum, Alamogordo, NM

There are lots of incredible exhibits, where you’ll learn the history of the space program and the era, see what space craft looked like, learn the science, experience art about the space race and much more. There are some spots where the museum is a little lacking in polish currently, but it’s made up for by the number of interactive exhibits, which allow you to train to pilot a space ship or feel the wind and ground when a spaceship takes off, or learn about Star Trek and its place in our cultural history.New Mexico Space Museum, Alamogordo, NM

It’s easy to spend several hours here. I’d recommend at least three or four. And be sure to check the schedule of the Planetarium too if that interests you.New Mexico Space Museum, Alamogordo, NM

There’s a beautiful nature trail, a memorial and other outside exhibits worth a stop before departure too.

If you’re considering a visit, a highly recommend it. It’s an awesome deal. And if you need a place to grab a bite or a coffee (and gelato if it’s in stock), I recommend Plateau Espresso nearby.

Thanks for stopping by! If you enjoyed this, you might also enjoy A Long Day in Longmont, CO.
