My last day of work in Truth or Consequences was Thursday, May 30th and I left the next day and headed to Santa Fe for the night. The winds blew me into Santa Fe Skies RV Park (http://www.santafeskiesrvpark.com/) which was a very nice park but the winds made it impossible to do anything other than stay in my RV. When I left the next morning I drove through the smoke from the Pecos fire which at that time was 0% contained. The area was so beautiful and green after my many months on the desert and I wondered how much damage was being done to those trees as I sped through 20 miles of smoke. It was a bit unsettling but as soon as I got through the smoke the roads opened up and it was a beautiful day to be driving and listening to my new love...Sirius radio. How did I ever live without it????

And now I am in Rapid City, SD with more wind! Once again I got in just ahead of the strongest gusts but 22-25 mph winds seem to be my new normal. I am in Rapid City because I have finally gotten around to changing residency and I now have a new address and as of tomorrow will have a South Dakota driver's license and will soon have new vehicle plates. America's Mailbox (http://www.americas-mailbox.com/) makes it extremely easy to walk through the process and with only one night's stay, although I am staying two nights, you can become a resident and no longer pay tax on your personal income. Sorry Oregon, I loved you, but your 9% tax was just too much.
After South Dakota I have around a month to fill before joining the Kaypacha Festival (http://kaypachahealingfest.com/) so I will be heading back to Colorado to hang for awhile. I love Colorado and am excited about a longer visit.
