We’re back at Bunker Hill!
Why would I go back to Storrie Lake, you’re asking? Because I can’t enjoy my travels when I have so much unfinished business. Things need to be done, and if they aren’t, they are going to bite me.
Please don’t bite me!
Both my phone and my computer are dead. I’m paying for emergency road assistance which I can’t call when I need it. I should call the insurance company as I never received confirmation that the Casita is fully insured. My credit card bill is going to be due soon and I don’t know how much the balance is to make a payment, and I don’t pay interest anymore! I try to set up an online account, but it requires a phone call to receive a code.
Even the simple life can get complicated very quickly.
I need to call Jonathon at Casita Travel Trailers to explain what I need him to fax to Americas Mailbox so my trailer can be registered in South Dakota. I need to make a copy of a document and fax it to Americas Mailbox so the PTV can be registered there. I like to check my bank account online. I want to go to a Verizon office, sit down, and talk about my options. I don’t like paying for something that doesn’t work! These are some of the things weighing on my mind that can only be removed with phone and internet service.
Time to move to where I can get things done!
Storrie Lake is only four miles outside of the small city of Las Vegas. Las Vegas has a Verizon office, a copy and fax place near the post office, hardware stores, and is easy to navigate. It also has a Walmart. I want a radio! The one I’ve had for twelve years died a couple of weeks ago. I have phone and internet connections at Storrie Lake State Park, and I can get a lot of these pressing things done right down the road in Las Vegas.
Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
So I left Eagle Nest. I explored Cimarron Canyon. The drive to the town of Cimarron has some jaw-dropping scenery! The Palisade cliffs, for instance. The trees are turning yellow and gold. What a road for fishing spots! Highway 64 follows alongside a rocky creek and their are numerous places to pull over. The area from Cimarron to Eagle Nest is a place I’d like to visit again! Unfortunately I couldn’t take any photos because . . . my camera phone needed to be charged. From Cimarron I drove to Interstate 25 and hustled on down to Las Vegas.
