Wind, Wind and More Wind

It is frequently windy here in New Mexico but today we are really getting a taste of it.  Sitting here in gusts up to 48mph and the rig is rocking.  Feels like riding out a tropical storm in Pensacola. The good thing is there are no trees to blow down (and it’s not raining).

The bad thing is we’re in a motor home!  The wind is supposed to die down later this evening. Just hope we stay upright until then.

Went for a walk earlier today before the wind got really bad. Walked around a residential area of Elephant Butte near the lake. It is a mixture of nice houses with views of the lake and smaller, older summer cottages. We did find a new lawn decoration if we ever have a real house again. Guess it’s a good way to recycle.




  1. The shape of those planters looks vaguely familiar. I'm sure I've seen it somewhere.

    By the way, my levelers are fixed (for free!). I called the Bigfoot headquarters and they talked me through it. It was windy here, too, last night, but I'm ready for the winds now that I'm "leveled out."

    Happy trails,
