Arrival: Camp Low-Hi

Arrived at the Low-Hi Rv Ranch near Deming today amid cold and strong gusts. Fortunately the drive was only about 30 miles, rather the wind would have become fatiguing.

Low-Hi RV Ranch is a no frills-but-adequate RV park outside Deming that has almost 100% large pull-thru sites. I am paying $3/day for dry camping here. Much less than the $10.00/person chinese buffet we went to last evening in Deming.

We are in the dry camping area of this RV park, at leastr many are. Some wimps are plugged in. I rate socalled ‘boondocking’ stops as HC (Hard Corps), MC (Medium Corps) and LC (Low Corps). This is a LC location

LC = dry camping in a developed park.

MC = dry camping in an undeveloped campground, business parking lot, etc.

HC = dry camping in a remote non-developed area.

TB (True Boondocking) – dry camping in hidden enclaves not described because they are non-describable.

Pictures to follow whenever I muster the energy. Computering is becoming lower on my priorities. Todays major project is the collection of fire wood from a ranch about 20 miles west of Deming. Darryl and I are going to load Ranger with enough to sustain Cowboy Coffee Clutch a whileif the wood is as described.

Night of January 16th

I attended the local Deming rendition of Ayn Rand’s play “Night of January 16th” yesterday. Given that my expectations were low, sitting through the play was not unpleasant, except for the discussion between my bones and the less-than-comfortable chair and the enforced containment therein. Fortunately there were three acts to allow a stretch. My interest in the play was primarily due to the author. So I now know what the play is and is not to prepare me in case a more professional rendition is encountered down the road.

The local audience related to the actors well because they are all local Deming-ites. Even though the play was undoubtedly a serious event as originally presented, the local version was cast as a comedy, and did evoke an occasional smile.

Never mind, just go read it at Wikipedia.
