Friday, December 11
Our day begins with a pink-and-purple sunrise!
The sun makes her brilliant entrance, then like a beautiful woman leaving a room, she slips behind the cover of clouds.
“Gosh, it’s too drab to hang around camp today. We should go somewhere.”
By the time Bridget and Reggie are in their crew positions in the Perfect Tow Vehicle, I have an idea what we can do.
The night before last a Class A motorhome entered what I’ve dubbed Loners’ Acres, the section of Midland that is mostly unoccupied, save for us and one other camper. We’re camped far apart from each other.
I didn’t hear the motorhome’s arrival.
It isn’t until morning when I first peek out the window over our bed that I see it. Whoever it is, they are courteous enough to park well away from anyone else, and, to my relief, they are quiet all day long.
Their arrival sets me thinking about what I will do if this area of Midland becomes more populated than I prefer.
After a brief stop at the trash dumpsters on the way out, I drive us to the other side of the road.
Most RVers settle into a camp on the north side of Midland Road. However, Midland LTVA reaches over to the south side, too.
Maybe we can find another good campsite over here. We might want to move soon or maybe, some time in the future, we’ll return to Midland and find too many campers on the north side.
“Here we are! A new place for our morning walk!”
Bridget and Reggie are enthusiastic for a chance to explore new territory.
This one has a palo verde. Tidy it up, put down the blue mat . . . It would work.
The ground is hard and flat which is good. Sites are clean and easy to get to. Not many rodent holes. More coyote scat than where we’re camped now. We’d be visible from the road. There’s some road noise, although it’s slight. Not much traffic going toward ghost town Midland.
Lunch at the park with my best friends makes a grey day bright!
