Roses are red, violets are blue, click all the pics, and you will be through.
I walked down to the lake the first thing this morning, and it's as low as I've ever seen it. There's little islands and weeds sticking up all over, so the lake is pretty shallow.
I think Storrie Lake is well on its way to being renamed Storrie Mud Puddle.
Today dawned in the high 30s, cloudy, foggy, and stayed that way most of the day, quite a change from the warm, dry, desert I've gotten used to.
Nonetheless, I had a great night's sleep last night. I usually do, but some are better than others. I think Elephant Butte was getting a little warmer at night than I prefer because I sleep better when it's chilly. It got down into the 30s last night here at Storrie Lake, so I got to use my down blanket. And I think the dichotomy of the chilly air and the warm blanket gives me a better night's sleep.
I've noticed that places that refill propane tanks are getting harder to find. Some places I've used in the past are no longer their, which means I've got to get on the Internet and start hunting for businesses that will fill my propane tanks and their getting more and more difficult to find.
I'm guessing one of the reasons this is happening is that many people take their empty tank to one of those exchange places, which are just about everywhere now, and walk out with a full tank without much hassle.
Yes, they are convenient, and you can find them just about anywhere. I sometimes use them myself when I'm getting propane for the little Bronco slide in camper because it uses the standard 5-gallon tanks instead of the 10-gallon tanks the Arctic Fox uses. But I try not to because they don't put much propane in those exchange tanks, so they have to be refilled pretty often if you're a long-term boondocker like myself, but if you live in RV parks, you might wonder why you even have a propane system.
When I'm plugged into a campground, I bring out my electric heater, I set my electric hotplate on the stove, plug in my toaster oven, switch my fridge and hot water tank to electric, and take full advantage of the electricity that I feel is free because the cost of electricity is built into my camping fee. The
The little group of four picnic shelters where I'm boondocking is called the waterfront camping area. And its called that because Storrie Lake used to come up next to that group of shelters.
This morning I walked down near the Lake, I didn't go all the way because it looked too muddy, turned around and took a picture of my boondocking site, and as you can see the Lake is nowhere near those picnic shelters.
A boondocking sunset. It's a boondocking sunset because I was standing in the doorway of the Arctic Fox when I took this picture.
