The day after celebrating Christmas we packed up and drove south.
It took us all morning to pack everything up into our travel trailer.
We added a couple Christmas decorations and were good to go. We made sure to bring clothes for lots of different weather, lots of books and yummy food. It’s so nice to travel with our bathroom with us so we don’t have to worry about finding rest areas or exposure.
We stopped in Pueblo, Colorado for a while to play. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed the break.
We had reservations at Storrie Lake State Park in New Mexico. We rolled into the entry parking lot around 7 pm to ding the gates locked and closed. We read the sign on the gate that the gates are closed in the winter at 5 pm! First big fail of our trip, we couldn’t find any information online saying that they closed early. Luckily the entry parking area was tucked back and flat so we just camped there for the night. It would have been nicer to camp in a spot by the lake but all we needed was a place to sleep. All things considered it worked out fine.
