Greetings from Western New Mexico!

We’re currently parked at the USA RV Park in Gallup, NM and only 15 miles from the Arizona State line.  Our original plan was to spend two nights at Bluewater Lake State Park about 65 miles east of here.  But, after pulling into the park and finding no cell service, we opted to continue west along I-40 and stay at a “proper” RV park here in Gallup.

And, this park meets all the requirements of an urban RV park.  You can hear the trucks along I-40, the train roars by every hour or so, and we are located at the end of the Gallup Municipal Airport runway – so what sounds like aircraft strafing runs happen a few times each day.  But, noise aside, the park is a well cared for, gravel sites with paved roads and provides full hookups along with cable TV for about $35/night.  They have an interesting pricing model here – they charge the base rate for a site, then add-on fees for 50AMP service, cable TV, etc.  The parks free WiFi for the most part does OK, but seems fairly limited in the overall bandwidth it allows.  T-mobile provides good 4G here, so there are good alternatives to what might prove to be a frustrating WiFi experience.

With all the big-box stores such as Walmart and Home Depot very handy in Gallup, we’ll spend 2 nights here picking up a few items that we’ve discovered either didn’t make the camper transfer or got lost in the shuffle.  On Tuesday we’ll continue toward Phoenix, with a stop at Heber-Overguarrd along the way.  More from the White Mountains of Arizona.
