Traveling Around America

Tomorrow I’m going up to Tucson, Arizona for the big mineral show.

On the way back I’m planning to attend the 14th annual Bootheel Cowboy Poetry Fiesta in Lordsburg, N.M. and also to visit a few ghost towns including Shakespeare.

My little 1.8 liter Toyota Corolla pulls this tiny little camping trailer just fine. Driving responsibly I get almost 40 mpg pulling this little teardrop camping trailer.

In the trailer I’ve got lights, a Coleman propane stove, a heater, a bed, a porta-potty, an mp3 player with over 1,500 songs, and both 12 vdc and 115 vac circuits.

It sure beats sleeping in a tent, and it is a lot cheaper than a big Winnebago or sleeping in motels.
