I had planned on staying in Roswell for another night so I could at least visit the UFO Museum in town, but things didn't work out.
I went to the RV park that I had planned on staying at and found out they were full. That's kind of strange because every other place I've been New Mexico has been kind of deserted. I tried out another place and found them way too expensive. It really bothers me to have to pay almost motel rates just to sleep in my own trailer.
So looking at the situation I determined that the UFO Museum can wait and I drove the 60 miles or so down to the Escapees RV Park called "The Ranch" just south of Artesia New Mexico.
As is usually the case at an Escapees RV Park I was greeted as if I was an old friend. As I was checking in 3 or 4 people came into the office just to welcome me to the park. I was telling everyone I was only going to be at The Ranch for a couple of weeks and one lady chimed in, "that's what I said 20 years ago".
I'm staying in the Boondocking area for my 1st week, and it cost $5 a day plus your 1st day is free if you pay for a week, so it only cost me $30 plus a couple dollars in tax.
My next week I will stay at a full hookup site because they have a discount if you've never been here before which is $50 for a week with full hookups. And that's only a little bit more than the Roswell RV Park was going to charge me for one night. Like I said before, I only carry two club cards, a Good Sam and an Escapees card. And so far the Escapees card has been the most useful.
