October 24, 2017. I am a bit weary of fighting constant wind while driving, and I am sure the other vehicles on the highway are tired of me creeping along. I decide to stay a few days at the Veterans Park in Lordsburg, NM. It has no amenities other than covered picnic tables, a BBQ , and large garbage bins. There are some water spigots for watering the trees, and I utilize it, but boil it good before using as there are no signs saying it’s potable. I would think they would post that it is not potable, but I don’t want to take a chance.
It’s lovely that they honor the brave men and women who have served our country.
The area could use some cleanup, but I am grateful for a chance to park for a few days and catch up on the blog, do some reading, and to do a little reorganizing inside the van. Reorganizing is an ongoing process!
October 25th. The wind continues to blow and has my sinuses clogged keeping me inside again other than the necessary walks the boys need. Internet is good and we will stay another day before continuing our westward progress.
HAPPY VETERAN’S DAY TO THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN WHO GAVE UP A PART OF THEIR LIVES TO SERVE OUR COUNTRY. As Billy Cyrus said about servicemen: ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL. Thank you for your service!
I am starting a new feature on the blog and please let me know if it is helpful or not. It will be a compilation of the different things offered at campsites we use.
2Dogs thank you for your loyal readership.

# of Sites: About 15 with the above, and also areas to park that don’t have the tables or BBQs.
Please be courteous and respectful of your neighbors when camping. Pick up your trash and clean up after your dogs. Dogs, as in all group areas anywhere, need to be leashed/restrained at all times. Leave your site better than you found it. Purchase a few things in town. This is especially important when your site is free.
