Saturday, March 7, 2020 - Pancho Villa State Park, Columbus, NM, Day 4 - 0 Miles, 4,740.5 Miles for the Trip

Not much happening today. Today's high was 76°F, with an overnight low of 50°F.

I did check the signal quality of both Verizon & AT&T here at the campground. Verizon shows 6.2MB down & 3.5MB up, while AT&T is 8.3MB down & 2.9MB up. I took a couple of walks around the campground, then settled in outside to do some reading. I finished Anne Hillerman's The Tale Teller, and started a real paper book - Jeffrey Deaver's The Coffin Dancer, an early Lincoln Rhyme book that I somehow haven't read. It is interesting to read a book in a series that is 10 - 12 releases old.

I'm glad I have a cover on the picnic table. I set up the Instant Pot on the picnic table, started dinner & it started raining. According to my weather app the rain isn't suppose to arrive until tomorrow, but while light, it has pretty much been raining for the last 3 hours.

During a brief null, I cranked up the stabilizers & hooked up the trailer to the truck, just in case it is pouring in the morning.

Dinner was a chicken thigh, new potatoes & pinto beans cooked in the Instant Pot. 18 minutes for a frozen thigh, overnight soaked beans, and the potatoes worked well with the chicken thigh at 190°F, and the potatoes & beans done. I might try 16 minutes next time.

Until Tomorrow -
