Day1-3: Well that was just unnecessary. It took us 3days to do what should be a 6hr drive. Las Vegas, NM is a hostile place... Santa Fe, NM is trying to hard and Albequerque would have been better if I could have gotten it's namesake by Weird Al to play...
Day 4-10: So we went exactly where everyone told us not too. The Mexican Border... Las Cienegas is what they call BLM land ( basically the government owns it and doesn't know what to do with it so you can go do pretty much whatever you darn please and no one will say anything). Las Cienegas is 30 miles from the Mexican border, and I've never felt safer. Go figure right? The place was CRAWLING with Border Patrol, and there's nothing but yuppy old people out there. Real scary huh? Actually you probably should be afraid of old yuppies, but that's a whole long hippy rant I'll save for later...
Day 11-12: Lake Patagonia is a &^&^&*^*, we left immediatley the next day and headed for Quartzsite, AZ on a whim not knowing what was here but keep hearing it was the RV motherland and that you can't truely appreciate this lifestyle without coming here. So we drove all day and into the night (which was cute since or tail lights were out) and pulled into Hi Jolly camping area not being able to see anything.
Day 13- Present: We woke up to see a field of RVs in the desert, which I somewhat suspected would be the case... so we go into town and this whole place is a GIANT flea market/jewelry show/merchandise mart of senior citizen filled wonderfulness.
We are staying in an Rv park in the middle of town with a cabana full of elderly people who are fascinated by us "city kids" (not sure where they get that from... probably becuase anyone under 30 here is a damn dirty hippy and where I do fancy myself a hippy I do not have dreadlocks and hemp pants, haha)
Anyways! That's the status update, not too exciting I know, be back with you when I have some decent stories to tell :-)
