Wednesday, March 9, City of Rocks State Park, Faywood, NM, Day 3 - 0 Miles, 4,911.6 Miles for the Trip

One "interesting" problem with site 4 - the main trail through the campground goes through the site. The path is on the north side of the site, but depending on which side of a large bush hikers choose, they may be within 2' of the back window of the trailer. A bit of a surprise the first time one came by that way.

While it isn't specific to site 4, a neighbor in site 3, while hidden behind some rocks, loves to run a loud generator, and for some reason, sets off his car alarm every 15 minutes. Far away enough to be just annoying rather than a serious problem.

Warmer for the morning walk. The predicted wind has not started yet, so I sat outside and read after breakfast.

By the way, the cell connections here at City of Rocks is quite variable. I don't see any bars or cell service on my AT&T iPhone 13, and an unusable connection with the AT&T cell modem. Verizon showed 32Mbps down & 2.4Mbps up when I first started using it, but it comes & goes. This morning it was well under 1Mbps down, and now, at noon, a barely usable 4.5Mbps down & 0Mbps up, and at 2:00 10.5Mbps down and .1Mbps up. I hope this will post.

The wind did pick up. While not steady, the gusts were strong enough to chase me inside.

Dinner was A turkey sandwich, some snap peas, and the rest of the Bush baked beans.

Until Tomorrow -
