My notion of wandering northward as I please turns out to have problems.
As the map indicates, I'm thinking of heading for City of Rocks state park in New Mexico my first night out. They have a web site. They have on-line reservations. And they're about full up for the date(s) I had in mind. Looks like I'll have to make a reservation and make up my mind pretty quick!
And the boondocking spots I was thinking of further north on state land? Not open until May 1.
Hmmm. Gotta think about this ... but not tonight.
