Saturday, March 5, Smuggler's Roost RV Park, Animas, NM, Day 2 - 0 Miles, 4,765.8 Miles for the Trip

The warm nights are gone, although hopefully not forever. 34°F at 7:00AM. The wind mostly died down. While no longer shaking the trailer, it is still windy enough to hear it blowing across the vent.

After breakfast I went for a walk around the campground. It was up to 57°F by 11:00. It looks like the place was planned for a much larger crowd - over 300 sites, but only the row I'm in appears to be used, and many of the pedestals are of questionable connectability.

Long Empty Sites Most Used Sites

By late afternoon, the trailer warmed up enough to be comfortable, but the wind is back to shaking it. At least the dust & tumbleweeds are not flying by, maybe because they were already blown away yesterday. Looks like another day of not grilling outside!

I spent most of the afternoon sitting inside reading. I'm still listening to James Lee Burke's House of the Rising Sun & while he is one of my favorite authors, I just can't get into this one. I am reading a new author - Ghost Dancer by Robert Westbrook. I'm half way through the book & still not sure whether I like it or not. It might be one of those that requires you to read the entire thing before appreciating it.

Around 5:00 a truck camper moved in next to me.

Dinner was a sandwich and baked beans.

Until Tomorrow -
