Happy Halloween from northern New Mexico! 🙂
Well, we had grand plans of staying on our property through the winter in northern New Mexico. We even went so far as to have a back hoe come in and build an RV pad. But plans change and we decided to head to Arizona for the winter.
Why, may you ask? To start off, we are still in the month of October and we have already had snow and freezing temps. While our RV is well insulated it isn’t designed for that kind of weather and it’s only going to get worse before it gets better. We came to the conclusion that we had better be safe than sorry.
We have decided to head down to the LTVA area in Quartzsite and will stay there until it thaws out again out our place and possibly explore some other areas as well. Next year once the cabin is done and we have a wood stove then we can stay through the winter if we want. But, the really fortunate part of being a full time RVer is that we can go where the weather is mild and not worry about things like frozen water lines.
The weather people are predicting a really hard winter here this year and frankly we are just not equipped to deal with it. So we are erring on the side of caution and keeping ourselves safe. 🙂 We will really miss our property and our little community we have met here but there is always next year!
So our next post will come to you from the warmth of Arizona! We will enjoy warm days and cool nights and hopefully meet up with a bunch of other full time RVer’s and have a great winter. All in all a smart decision. Until next year, New Mexico! We will miss these glorious sunsets at our place but I’m sure we will see many more that are just as wonderful in Arizona!
