The last couple of days have been pretty windy especially yesterday. Yesterday was so windy I actually put down the rear jacks on the Arctic Fox, which is something I hardly ever need to do. The Arctic Fox is usually very stable and if there's any movement at all it's not enough to bother me. But yesterday the wind was hitting the Arctic Fox directly from the side and since it was gusty the trailer was moving around a little bit but putting down the rear jacks stopped that.
I don't know why but I couldn't get on my website for most of yesterday which is the reason I didn't post anything. Everything finally got back to normal just after dark without me having to do anything to it, and since it was the first time anything like that has happened I have no idea what the problem was. But it was a weird feeling going to my website and getting a blank page that said nothing was there. Maybe that's Google's opinion of my blog...Who knows.
Today was a lot better but was still windy so I didn't do much of anything today either. I'm not sure if it's because of the wind but Oliver Lee state Park is at least half empty today but last Saturday it was just about full. So the wind could be to blame, I don't think people would want to be driving around in an RV or pulling a trailer with the winds as high as they have been for the last couple of days.
I'm thinking I'll leave here next Wednesday or Thursday that way I can get to another State Park before the weekend crowds start coming in on Friday.
Now that I have another New Mexico state Park annual pass staying at a state Park makes the most sense. All the New Mexico state parks I've stayed at over the years have both boondocking, which they call primitive camping, and hookup sites. The boondocking sites being free with the pass, and the hookup sites costing four dollars for electric hookups and four more dollars for a sewer hookup, with the pass. Not needing any hookups I always pick a boondocking site because they're usually exactly the same except for the hookups or often better, being further away from other campers.
I'm hoping by tomorrow this wind will finally go away so I can run around and see a few things. Alamogordo has an old part of town that I would like to go to and take a few pictures, and since Sunday mornings are the best time to do that I'm hoping the weather will cooperate enough that I won't have to hold onto something to stay still enough to take a picture.
