P1210799 Caballo Lake camp
Next stop — Caballo Lake, dry camping near the boat launch.  Beautiful spot with 180 degree view of the water.  This was a good place to rest and regroup before heading to the Rally in Deming with the LOWs (Loners on Wheels).  You can see this organization has been around for a long time –

There were almost 80 solo RVers who came to this rally, and they came from all over the U.S. and also Canada.

The events were fun, everything from meals together to scavenger hunts, to games and dancing.

To recuperate from all this socializing, I retreated to the City of Rocks state park and took a site deep inside the rocks.  I think this is one of the most special and unique campsites where I will ever stay.

I was amazed to find my friends Marian and Jerry from South Carolina already here, so it was nice to share time with them again.  How nice to develop relationships with people from all the way across the country!
