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

When Hope Dies

When you give up on hope, something even better happens than it not killing you, which is that in some sense it does kill you. You die. And there's a wonderful thing about being dead, which is that they—those in power—cannot really touch you anymore. Not through promises, not through threats, not through violence itself. Once you're dead in this way, you can still sing, you can still dance, you can still make love, you can still fight like hell—you can still live because you are still alive, more alive in fact than ever before. You come to realize that when hope died, the you who died with the hope was not you, but was the you who depended on those who exploit you, the you who believed that those who exploit you will somehow stop on their own, the you who believed in the mythologies propagated by those who exploit you in order to facilitate that exploitation. The socially constructed you died. The civilized you died. The manufactured, fabricated, stamped, molded you died. The victim died.

And who is left when that you dies? You are left. Animal you. Naked you. Vulnerable (and invulnerable) you. Mortal you. Survivor you. The you who thinks not what the culture taught you to think but what you think. The you who feels not what the culture taught you to feel but what you feel. The you who is not who the culture taught you to be but who you are. The you who can say yes, the you who can say no.
