Out and In and Out

At the moment, I'm at Rockhound State Park near Deming, New Mexico.  I like this place.  But there's a story ...

Last weekend the plan was to spend a few days with a friend at Parker Canyon Lake south of Tucson. Didn't quite happen according to plan.  The friend had to cancel because of a family crisis.  I went down solo, and the place was full.  Packed.  Lots and lots of children ... little girls on pink bicycles seemed to prevail.  The campground host site was empty... I could have stayed there and hoped that the host wouldn't show.  But the idea of getting rousted out in the evening when he/she appeared wasn't appealing.  So I flipped a coin.  Tails.  I turned around and went home.

It turned out that the reason for the crowd was Spring Break.  We take Spring Break seriously in these parts.

Stayed home for a day and decided that the rig was all packed, so it was time for another visit to the New Mexico park system.  There was a vacancy for Monday (that's today) in their on line system, so I jumped on it.  And here I am. Exactly where I'll be tomorrow remains to be seen.  But for the moment I have a great spot with electric and water and good views.  Stay tuned!
