LoW-HI RV Ranch is a spacious 65-site RV park and is the headquarters for Loners on Wheels, Inc., a 40 year old singles club and is open to the public.

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

Heliograph routes of the 1890 Practice

The date was May 15th, 1890, and the Army's Department of Arizona had just completed a major heliograph practice; it was, in fact, the largest the world had ever seen. I call it the "Volkmar Practice", after the man responsible for it, Col. Wm. J. Volkmar, the Assistant Adjutant General and Chief Signal Officer for the Department of Arizona. Although the practice lasted only sixteen days, preparations for it took months of reconnaissance and preparation. Involved in the long range signaling maneuvers were twenty-five heliograph stations stretching from Whipple Barracks near Prescott to Fort Stanton near Ruidoso, New Mexico. My guess is that close to two hundred men were involved, both cavalry and infantry.
