Right now in Jamestown, New Mexico, it is cold and windy. But that won't last for too long as spring will begin next month and then the summer months. That means camping season!
I've already decided on some excursions in the months ahead.
One of them is a return visit to Monument Valley. Monument Valley is about 201 miles from here, a three and a half hour drive (give-or-take). That, to me, is a reasonable distance. I was in Monument Valley in November 2016. While it was enjoyable, it was a bit cold. This time, I would like to go there during the summer months when everything is open (such as Goulding's Lodge shuttles). The heat would be no problem as The Beast has air conditioning and the swimming pool will be open.

Also, there is the Roswell UFO Festival that will be held in Roswell, New Mexico on July 6-8. It looks like it would be a lot of fun to attend.
Roswell is 321 miles from here, a five-hour drive according to Google.
Besides those, there is also the spring clampout of the Lost Dutchman Chaper of E Clampus Vitus. It will be held in Arizona. The Lost Dutchman Chapter is the official ECV chapter of New Mexico.
There are also local places to camp at. There are state park nearby as well as RV resorts at some of the Navajo Indian casinos.
This should be a good year for getting out.
