Let me say this straight up, the casino is a great place to stay.
Often you hear people say they can’t afford the RV lifestyle because they have to work a 9-5 job. Albuquerque is one of those cities where you could hold down a regular job, live for free in an RV and just move your rig every few days between the three casinos on the outskirts of town (and there are many cities in the US where this would work). No excuses!
No, I didn’t leave because it is expensive, noisy or boring. I left because there are way too many distractions in Albuquerque: cheap eats, bookstores, coffee shops, movie theaters…. All pulling me away from a work load that has been building up relentlessly.
On a more positive note, Randy and his crew dropped in at the casino for the Balloon Festival and we all hung out a few evenings (I don’t consider Randy and his tribe a distraction as RV’ers are quite respectful of each other’s privacy). But it was time for me to go, so I said my goodbyes last night and this morning headed westward and upward to Bluewater State Park.
Because it’s getting cooler, I pretty much have the place to myself. Mark and Ginger (also of Randy’s tribe) are here, but even they are leaving after the weekend.
With lots of solitude, I should get lots of work done.
