I haven't been in New Mexico since autumn, when I was in the northern part of the state. Right now I'm in the southwestern part, near Silver City.
On the way here, about twenty miles northeast of Douglas, AZ, I got pulled over by the Border Patrol. The officer didn't quite know what to make of the Rolling Steel Tent. I think he was a bit disappointed I'm a US citizen and wasn't smuggling drugs or people. And it would have been nicer for me if he hadn't had his hand on his pistol most of the time.
