Interstate 25 cuts through the heart of New Mexico and rolls on mile after mile of both prairie and foothills. And since traffic is light to nonexistent it's all too easy to set the cruise control and let the hum of the tires on the pavement take your mind to another time and place.
I made it to Storrie Lake state Park in New Mexico by lunchtime and only found two other RVs in the campground. Since it's still pretty chilly at night here, usually in the low 40s, I decided to pay for an electric hookup so I can run my little electric heater at night. It's only four dollars a night to camp with electricity since I have the New Mexico annual Park pass so I gave the Iron Ranger eight dollars and settled in for two nights.
Also the next two days are supposed to be cloudy and rainy and without the electric hookup I would have to pay attention to my solar panels keeping the batteries charged up. But for four bucks a night I can use all the electricity I want.
My rearview cameras are acting weird as usual. The camera that looks at the road behind me quit working completely and all I had was a black screen the whole way to Las Vegas New Mexico. Whereas the other camera that looks straight down at my motorcycle worked great the whole time, and I only seen it blink off once for a brief moment.
I don't know why any of that is happening and the only thing that makes any sense to me in this situation is those two cameras don't like each other. And since they absolutely refuse to get along with one another for more than a few minutes at a time, this leads me to the obvious conclusion that one's a male and the others a female.
An old wagon wheel at a rest stop reminds me of what travel must've been like in the old days.
