I packed up and left Sunset RV Park around 9:00, stopping at Walmart for some supplies, and filled the gas tank wit 85 octane gas. That may be responsible for the poor mileage on the drive, although gaining 1000' could also have something to do with it. In any case, about 10.8 MPG for the trip.
It rained all of the drive, from just a drizzle to heavy pour-downs. I used my iPhone to take a hurried photo of a rainbow as I was leaving Deming. The rain mostly stopped as I reached Portal, the nearest "town" to the campground - it consists of one store/restaurant. It is 43°F at 12:00 & the furnace is working fine. Sure hope it warms up. I'm in site 13, with a clear view of the sky, which should help the solar if the sun comes out. a dry site for $5.00 per night with the senior pass discount. As you can see from the photos, a very pretty campground. We had our own campground rainbow. Not as impressive as the one outside Deming, but a much nicer location.

I spent the rest of the afternoon trying to keep warm, sitting in the trailer. While the heavy rain has stopped, there is lots of mist & it is too cold to sit around outside. Actually, at times the mist changes to steady rain. A good day to sit inside.
Until Next Time -
