Sometimes I go crazy

Oh, sure, in my previous blog post I hoped that the campground wouldn't get overrun with Memorial Day weekenders. Ew, people! So what do I do? I leave the still roomy campground in the mountains and go to Elephant Butte Lake State Park. Along with nearly everyone else in New Mexico.

A fraction of the mob camped along the shore

Awk, so many people! And their stuff! Boats. Personal watercraft. OHVs. Diesel 4x4s. Duce-and-a-Half trucks. Generators. Neurotic, untrained, yapping dogs. Music. Squealing, happy kids. People having a good time. EEEEWWWWW!!! 

But it's okay. My introversion needs the occasional break from solitude. I can be around people as long as I'm not surrounded by them. I have a spot to myself, back away from the shore. Besides, I need my water fix. Even if the water is filled with people zooming around for the sake of zooming around. Oh, and blissfully happy Labs and Retrievers.


  1. Wrong move, eh ?? Sorry, shit happens !!

  2. I was having an anxiety attack until I saw the last photo. Then I could breathe again.
