As much as I don't like to plan because it almost never works for me, I had "planned" on going to the LTVA check in building and re-upping for another two weeks. On the way there I drove by all the overflowing dumpsters and miracle of miracles they were all empty. Moving on to the entrance shack about 11 o'clock this morning it was closed. I thought that was odd because their hours are from nine till four, so I drove across the highway to the other LTVA and they had closed signs in the window also.
I figured I would go a couple miles down the highway to the La Posa South LTVA, where the water fill and dumpsite is and see what was going on there, and like the others the office was closed but the dumpsite and water fill stations were still being used. I was happy to see that because I do need to pick up some water and dump my tanks, but I noticed that the guy that is sort of the dump station manager that's always there.... Wasn't. I drove back home, backed under the Arctic Fox, and mostly but not completely hitched up.
Now here I sit with a whole bunch of questions on my mind and no answers only guesses.....
Did the government suddenly close the LTVA's? I haven't seen anyone leave. Everything appears normal except the offices at the entrance are closed, but maybe that's normal.
Are the dumpsite and water going to remain in use until April the 15th the normal end of the season?
My LTVA sticker expired today, will I be arrested and thrown in a Mexican prison? This is highly unlikely because I'm sure the government can think of worse things than that to do to me.
Should I move over to La Posa South, dump my tanks and hide in the bushes disguised as an illegal alien until it's time for me to head North?
Is it normal for the LTVA check-in offices to close this time of the year because they don't expect anyone to be checking in? I have no idea because I've never been here this time of the year before, maybe someone will let me know.
Are the LTVA's now officially closed but you can remain here as long as you want there just won't be any water or dumpsite available.
These and many other questions are concerning me at the moment but I'm not going to lose any sleep over any of them. I'll probably go empty my tanks and fill up with water tomorrow morning and whatever I do after that.....Your guess is as good as mine.
