I had an uneventful drive to the City of Rocks state Park this morning, it only took about an hour. The local immigration checkpoint was closed so I didn't have to go through that but there was a little more traffic than I had anticipated on the two-lane blacktop that goes to the state Park. all in all getting there was pretty stress-free.
Unfortunately when I got to the state Park office my stress level went up a couple of notches when I was told they only had one pull through site empty and otherwise they were pretty much full. I was given a map of the campground with the reserveable sites that I couldn't use marked on it and told I could stay in anything else that was empty,
The boondocking sites which are the ones among the rocks were obviously designed many many years ago and are very small, nowhere near level, and in some cases impossible for a 30 foot trailer to get into, including some of the pull-through's. I only found two empty sites. One was a pull-through that was so narrow I didn't think the Arctic Fox would fit in it, and the other was what I call a pull-into site, which is sort of a wide spot in the road. I grabbed that one thankful to find anything that I would fit into.I've driven past the full hookup sites twice now and they look completely full.
After settling into my boondocking spot I actually like it better than I thought I would when I first saw it. It's off by itself and I don't have any neighbors near me at all. It gets plenty of sunshine until late afternoon when the rocks shade the site. And it's not as unlevel as it first looked.
When I went into the Arctic Fox and opened up the roof vents the Fantastic vent fan in the living room actually started working again. It's been weeks since that fan came on. All this time I've been putting off getting out my ladder and climbing up on the roof to see what's wrong with it. The only thing that I can think of that might've fixed it was driving over the bumpy dirt roads in the City of Rocks state Park. Once again being lazy pays off.
