A few words from the Loners on Wheels LoW-HI RV Ranch website:

Located at the intersection of O’Kelley Road and Country Club Road, about 4 miles south of Deming, New Mexico, this spacious 65-site RV park is the headquarters for Loners on Wheels, Inc., a 40 year old singles club. The Club has about 2,000 members and operates 50 regional chapters in the USA and Canada. It is also the gathering place for traveling LOWs and a year-around “home-base” for some. The Ranch is open to the public, so couples may also enjoy this peaceful and fun atmosphere. Two fun LOW rallies are held at the Ranch yearly, one in April and one in October.

Nights I've camped here

It was the Crickets

Now then: it isn't so much that one way of dying beats another, though that certainly is the case, but rather that when you KNOW the jig could be up any second or any decade -- it's the awareness that's important -- that just might make a difference. I'm like everybody else, I have these moments and then forget, lapsing back into "immortality." But there was a thing that happened in my back yard maybe 18 months before we split from Maryland that hit me as hard as seeing their president drop dead on stage must have hit those graduating seniors.

It was the crickets. I'd gone outside one warm fall evening to shut the garage door and suddenly realized I couldn't hear the crickets! No wait, I could, but only if I turned my head a certain way. Oh God, oh no: I had almost no high-frequency hearing in my right ear, or was it my left? That doesn't matter. The point is, a part of me had shut down permanently. No, it hadn't happened suddenly, but I had finally noticed, and that was hard to take. I'd never again hear crickets like I once had. Never! I walked back to the house in tears. All right, I'm sensitive. But I understood at once what all this meant.
