We do like hookups in the winter

For the electricity mainly. Electric heat is much pleasanter than propane. And propane can be a real headache to find sometimes. Not here, I know where to find propane in Deming but in general. Plus one has to break camp to go get the tank refilled. I only have a ten gallon tank on this rig and that's only enough to heat the rig for four or five nights in the 30 degree weather we are getting here.

The Trespasser's Eyeshine

She put the butt end of the flashlight against her forehead, just above the space between her eyebrows. It was something she'd learned long ago about seeing at night. A light shined from there would reveal nothing of herself to a trespasser, and from that spot on her forehead a beam would go straight to the retinas and return to her own eyes the characteristic color of the trespasser's eyeshine. If it had eyes, of course, and if they were looking at her directly.

Prodigal Summer, Barbara Kingsolver
