That was an unnecessarily long blogging hiatus. It's not like I have stuff to do.
I told you I'd be traveling with my crush, and so I am. He has some rig issues to deal with, and Alamogordo is a good place to be lingering. I can highly recommend Oliver Lee State Park, with a variety of sites for your lingering pleasure. You can get electric/water sites, or dry sites, with/without shelter. That came out pretty concisely, when it was just a jumble of choices inside my head.
Southern New Mexico is beginning to warm up, and I've been enjoying flowering ____ trees here in Alamogordo. You'll have to go somewhere else for botanical knowledge.
Alamogordo has the most thrift stores, per capita, of any small city in the U.S.* I've spotted about ten of them so far.
I hope winter is losing its grip on you, wherever you are.
