PERCHA DAM SP, NM—I moved camp yesterday, just down the road, out in the farming district. I’ve got an entire section of the park all to myself, everyone being across the way where the hook ups are. I like it like that.
There are lots of little birds here, doing what little birds do to occupy their time: chasing bugs in the mornings and evenings, spending their days chirping away outside my window, building nests for spring.
The trees here are huge and the breeze blowing through the leaves makes a wonderful sound. The birds and the breeze and the rustling leaves remind me of a little park in the Delta region of California I stayed in a few years back.
It’s really quite pleasant here. But…
Today I came across a Chinook RV on Craigslist, just a short two hour drive north in Albuquerque. I’m sorely tempted—sorely—but my plan is/was to buckle down, crank out code and build up my savings, while at the same time working on my next two books (an Amazon-friendly ebook version of Fading Toward Enlightenment, and the tentatively titled, The Awakening of a Mystic (sort of a FTE II)).
Plus I’ve recently finished building the trailer out just the way I want it, with a new easy chair, desk, cabinets, and charging station. Still…
The reason I’m contemplating the Chinook is the same reason I like the idea of the van (and I liked the idea of my original stealth camper): To go and stay (practically) anywhere without making plans—something fellow nomad Glenn has successfully done with a similar rig for a few years now. Something I often find myself envying.
I’m not doing a damn thing until I hear Her whispers.
