Friday, November 26, 2021 - Pancho Villa State Park, Columbus, NM, Day 6 - 0 Miles, 3,128.3 Miles for the Trip

A cold night - 36°F at 6:00AM. I went for a walk around the campground, adding to my site recommendations on my Campground Sites list. Again, all the sites would fit my trailer, but many have poorly positioned utilities, at least for a trailer.

After breakfast I read forums & blogs on the computer, then headed to Deming for my gasket material at NAPA, and hit both a grocery store & Walmart. I found Alaskan Amber at Pepper's grocery store, and the usual "stuff" at Walmart. Very busy, but, it is Black Friday. I tried to get replacement pads for the toilet "wand" I use, and, of course, Walmart no longer carries that model. They have a new & improved model that, I admit is better in that it has a holder for the wand & pads (my old one rattled around in the bathroom, getting under foot in the middle of the night). So, I tossed the old handle and have 9 pads to go through before I discover that the replacements are no longer available.

I now have a full freezer & am ready to head out Sunday without a long side trip to Deming. I haven't decided if I'm going to go straight to Whitewater Draw, or stop for one night at Sunny Flats. Sunny Flats is somewhat on the way, so I might check to see if one of the 11 sites is open. It is a beautiful forest service campground near Portal, AZ.

I spent the rest of the day reading. Not much outside - it never got above 50°F. I did take another short walk around the lower end of the campground.

Lunch was a turkey sandwich. Usually I enjoy turkey, mayo & cranberry sauce sandwiches for days after the turkey dinner for both lunch & dinner, but I'm not impressed with the Jennie O turkey breast. Tough and not much flavor. I'll try it tonight, but I'm not sure it is a keeper. Anyhow, dinner was a turkey sandwich & a salad.

Until Tomorrow -
