Elephant Butte

A couple of days ago I moved upriver to Elephant Butte State Park in New Mexico.  I hope that they will be having flowers blooming here also!  Upon arrival I found that the empty sites were few.  I was able to take a site that had just enough room for my motorhome and car to park.  It was level and paved!  I removed the dog's fencing from storage and placed it all across the front of the site, so now the dogs and I have a lovely yard to enjoy while we are here.



Note the fence in this photo, and see Hera sunbathing.

This shows a project I am working on, using an old jig saw that my dad gave me many years ago.  It was old when he gave it to me!  Works well, regardless.  I am cutting wood to make several items for my motorhome.


I had my two usual supervisors helping me with all this work!

This can is painted and will be installed to hold my fire extinguisher in the motorhome.


See how the fire extinguisher fits into the can.

See the L bracket screwed to the piece of wood?  That bracket will support the weight of the extinguisher.  I made two of them, one for the living room, and one for the hallway.

This is the extinguisher for the hallway.  Karen and Steve gave me these ideas of the wood plate and the L bracket.  I would not have thought of this on my own.  Thanks, Karen and Steve!

  1. Interesting fence, but I think Emma would scoot right under the rig and be on her way.

    1. I agree, and it's only large dogs that this works for, but many friends put a shorter fencing along the RV to keep puts from scooting under!

  3. Looks like you have picked a good place to park up, with the paved over area and the boundary fence.

    I so admire your handy work with the fire extinguishers.

    Hope you have a lovely day. Sue, Polly & Honey

  7. Looks like you've gotten some very clever ideas! How do you decide when you're going to move and where you're going to go?

  8. That looks like a nice spot, next to the bushes. The dogs seem very happy where they are.
    I am astounded at your proficiency for making things, I could never do that in a million years!

  9. good that you are handy with the tools.
    Looks like a nice campground. Is that a lake in the background of the first photo?
