I did not get several posts scheduled like I had planned before we left the Deming area.
The generator finally arrived on June 28th, but by that time I had a touch of heat exhaustion, and it was all I could do to get packed up, get the genny and get to Las Cruces to get another sim card for my Mobely.
While waiting in traffic in Las Cruces I witnessed the take down of two gals, ordered out of their big SUV and ordered onto the ground—-oh that hot pavement!—-while several more unmarked vehicles pulled up, officers jumping out with guns drawn. Good thing I was going to ATT and not Verizon (this all went down in Verizon’s parking lot) or I would have been right in the thick of things. Too close as it was!!
Anywho, once I left ATT with Mobely again ready to provide internet service Two Dogs and I headed north to Leasburg Dam State Park. No ATT cell tower there. Okay, next morning we move north to Percha Dam State Park. Same thing here.
So this leaves us with fingers crossed that the next big town, Truth or Consequences, will have a tower, or a library with shady parking. We still have ice so we are staying put until we have to go get some. The humidity is lessening and we have some nice shade to recover in. We need this respite.
We leave you with these photos, taken with my phone. Fries in a hole at the dog park in Deming. He had got bitten by a bug or bee or stepped on something and came limping over to where I was seated. He would not allow me to even touch his paw, but he found this hole behind the bench, made it his own and stayed in it until he felt better.
When we got back to the van Charlie, worn completely out, took a nap and commenting on the weather!
Thank you for your understanding in our current situation. We’ll be caught up soon. And I’ll just warn you, we revisited two of the parks and drove to a new one before we got the call that the generator had arrived, but they are great parks and there is new stuff to see!
