Since I didn't dream about fire or pie I took it as a sign that it didn't matter which way I go when I leave the Walmart parking lot in Socorro, so I flipped a coin and it came up Valley of Fires which made me happy because every place I go makes me happy.
It was really windy this morning which was a big surprise to me and quite possibly the weatherman who predicted calm this morning. It wasn't a dangerous wind, or I would've spent another night in the Walmart parking lot, but it did make driving a little more intense and it dropped my fuel mileage down to about 8 miles per gallon.
I got here about 9:30 and found all of the boondocking spots that I would fit into taken but there were several hookup sites which have water and electricity empty so I moved into one of those. Since Valley of fires is a BLM campground I whipped out my geezer pass and got a water and electric site for nine dollars a night. I signed up for two nights but I may stay a few more depending on the weather and how long I feel like being here.
The wind continued to howl all day so I stayed hunkered down in the Arctic Fox and didn't even bother to unhitch. So it will be tomorrow before I get a chance to walk around and do anything.
