I spent part of today getting ready to leave tomorrow for the Oliver Lee state Park just outside of Alamogordo New Mexico. Barney, the old fat man left this morning for that Park so we will be meeting up again tomorrow. At the moment were both just killing time waiting for the right weather to head back to our Summer areas.
I fueled up the truck at $3.20 a gallon for diesel, which I think is the most I've paid all winter. I went to the Walmart and bought a few things as it was only a mile or so from the gas station. But there again Alamogordo has a Walmart Supercenter and I didn't buy anything that I needed right away, I don't know why I do that but it's a habit I need to break.
I filled up my water tank since there was a water faucet about 20 feet from the Arctic Fox. And before it gets dark I'll hitch the truck up to the trailer so I can leave in the morning whenever the mood hits me.
Ordinarily I wouldn't choose to arrive at a state Park on Friday because after work on Friday is when a lot of people arrive at a state Park, but it's less than 150 miles away, and I'm going to leave pretty early in the morning in the hope of being there before lunch. Which with any luck will beat the rush.
I'm not really worried about finding a place to stay at the Park because Barney told me that there's BLM boondocking right across the Road from the Park that I can stay at if the Park is full. I looked at that area on Google earth and it does look like there's plenty of BLM land in the area and clear signs that RVs have been there.
I'm hoping I like the Oliver Lee Park, I need a place I can settle in for a week maybe 10 days and catch up on some things I've been needing to do like finishing up the motorcycle seat or putting up my new rear view cameras. It seems like for the last few weeks I've been doing more moving that I normally do. I like to move but then I like to settle down and have a place to call home for two weeks or so.
But I've still got plenty of time to get things done I'm not planning on getting back to Colorado till about the middle of May, so that gives me a lot of time to blow around New Mexico like a tumbleweed looking for something to bump into.
