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!
