Day 3 Entering New Mexico

We were at the park dump by 8 AM.

Kraig was volunteered……DSC_0002

Carol volunteered to hitch up.  I must have been busy with Kraig.DSC_0003

We got gas just before we left because it was $2.56 a gallon.  Still getting 8 mpg.  Just for info the diesel has been running about .40-.50 cents more a gallon.

Then we enter New Mexico.  Looks like they went all out as usual on their sign.DSC_0018Nice roads……….DSC_0022

About 140 miles today…….? Plus about 1/2 hour of rain.DSC_0026DSC_0027

Hey, we got water electric and entrance fee for $14.  Plus we got a table shelter.  Nice little park.  And there is a large lake you can go swimming in or fishing. It’s suppose to be 93 degrees at 4 PM but don’t feel like it at 4400 feet elevation.DSC_0032

and here’s Kraig enjoying himself.DSC_0030DSC_0034

and he continues….DSC_0035

And it’s Carol’s and my 47th Anniversary.  Kraig is gonna shisha bob some shrimp for our left over rice.  Oh boy………..

And he’s cooking… it was very good of course.DSC_0002

Then the dark rain/thunder clouds.  Saying it was a thunderstorm was really not accurate.  It friggin poured rain and the wind shook our little camper.  This went on for about 2-3 hours.  Temp dropped down to 62.  Nothing but a thing. DSC_0004

We slept thru the night and all is well.

Retirement is actually watching and enjoying a storm.  Not really…….
