I'm a happy camper. After a delightful weekend at Clayton Lake State Park, Clayton NM I thought I'd head up to Lamar CO, do my laundry, and spend the night at Walmart. But that plan didn't work out. The town didn't give me friendly vibes for some reason I can't quite figure out so I headed east thinking I might come across a nice small park somewhere. And I did - right here at Lakin KS. In fact I'm so becalmed by the fast Verizon internet connection here I'm going to lay over an extra day and play catch up. It's quiet - it doesn't look like anyone has spent a night here in quite a while - and the price is right, just $5.00 for water and electric. Not a bad deal. And as you can see - the wind isn't blowing either....
