Last night we "camped" at the NM Welcome Center along with a handful of others. This morning it was 25* when we woke up.
Bought gas at Flying J for "only" $2.75/gallon; the cheapest gas on the trip. Filled up with propane at $2.799/gallon. Took the backroads to Columbus, NM and the Pancho Villa State Park. $14/night. When Gopher & I made this trip in 2005 we stayed here. It's the site of the only ground invasion of US Territory since 1812. Pancho Villa raided the fort & town of Columbus in 1916.
In the morning, we continue the trek to California.
