Moving north to Deming, NM
I moved on to Low-Hi RV Park in Deming, NM in order to get a few things done. This is the LOW (Loners on Wheels) headquarters and I haved stayed here many times. Since I am a LOW member it only costs me $10 per night for electric/water. No too shabby !!!!!
Things to do but nothing got done…
I will be here for 5 nights. I got up Monday and headed to downtown Deming to get a haircut. I struck out there as it was closed on Monday. Then I was out of checks so went into Wells Fargo to get just a few until my check order catches up with me. The “Occupy” people were picketing the bank. I felt bad even going in there, but they have all my money for now. The lady who waited on me said they come 3 checks to a sheet and they cost $1 each. You have got to be kidding!!!! I turned around and walked out and decided I would use me debit card instead. These “Occupy” people have the right idea. The big banks are ripping off the little guy!
Nothing accomplished today but stopped at the grocery store for a few items including desert for the pot luck tonight. Monday is always pot luck night at the Low-Hi and you better bring an empty stomach. There is way too much food for any one person can eat. And so gooood too.
Tried to get into the 6:00pm card game but it was filled up so watched “Dancing with the Stars with Harry and Peter. I hadn’t seen it for some time so wasn’t familiar with any of the dancers.
Finally got a haircut
Tuesday I got up, made breakfast and headed down to the barber once again. Frank’s Barber Shop is a small shop that has been there long before the 70’s. Fernando took it over from his father Frank and told me how it was back in the hippy days of the 70’s when no one cut their hair. I usually go there everytime I am in Deming and need a hair cut. He really cut it short, but at least it will take a while to grown out again.
Finished up dental work
Drove down to Palomas, Mexico for my last visit with my dentist for a while. I got my permanent crown and then she cleaned my teeth. The total cost of the crown was $180 and another $30 for the cleaning. I go to the American Dental Care just in back of the Pink Store and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
North to Albuquerque
I really enjoyed spending a few days at the Low-Hi RV Park and caught up with many old friends and met a few new friends as well. It is a great central location for traveling in the Southwest. Tomorrow I head up to Albuquerque where I will have a valve put on my propane tank that will allow me to add an additional tank. Then I have a few days to get up to Fernley, NV where I will be workamping at Amazon’s warehouse.
Well, the good is you took care of business before you begin working. That’s a good thing.
Enjoy your freedom!
I’m also a fan of Dancing With The Stars. I would like to visit the Low-Hi RV Park in Deming, NM. Have read many posts about it. Thanks for posting the info on dental care in Mexico.
Jim, a question.
Next time I order from Amazon, should i let you know? Perhaps you could expedite my order?
See you at “Q”
IMHO banks are evil, greedy organizations that are a big part of the problem. The only one I will do business with now is USAA. They don’t feed on the little guys and they cater to ex-military customers. They reimburse you for ATM fees that others charge when you have to use their machines. (They have great insurance too).
I’m gonna have to check out Loners on Wheels.
Occupy does a lot of picketing and a lot of park sitting but I have yet to understand what they want that will make them happy. Government nationalization of the banking industry? Do away with all banks and go back to a cash and barter economy? Interest free loans and no repayment of the principal for all comers? Kill all bankers that make over $xxxx per year?
Maybe all of the above?
