Re: Socorro, NM to Roswell, NM

glad to hear you made it in 1 pc. you will have to check out your heater, how long are you planning on staying there? did you already have a place to set up your food cart before you got there? or do you just go find a place after you get there?
btw its -18F here, not to bad no wind

Re: Socorro, NM to Roswell, NM

You may consider picking up an infrared space heater. I put one out in the bus while I am working on it/ using it to get away from the kids for a bit. I picked up a Heat-a-lot from Orchelin's (farm store in the area) The bus isn't as well insulated as I like but the space heater was set to 70 Degrees over this last week and has kept me nice and toasty. It's been below freezing here and the heater has kept up with it. I liked it so much in the bus I picked one up for the house. I'm running the one in the bus and the one in the living room and I am still saving on my heating bill. I still have money left over from what I am saving on propane even with the extra electric being used.

The infrared is so much better than the ceramic space heater I'll have to hook up my kill-a-watt meter to get an exact number but I can actually run the heater and power tools off the same circuit. Saved me from having to drag out the generator to work on the bus. They are pricey though. The two I bought were $300 each, but the one in the bus will stay in there as a primary heat source when I have shore power.

Re: Socorro, NM to Roswell, NM

I have a few questions,not picking or trying to be nosey....just curious.

You headed east and decided lets stay here for a year.

Why plan a year?

I know you can just say "..." and leave heading further east

Why do people decide to stay in a place for X amount of time and then go there?

It seems like going some where,then checking it out and then deciding to stay makes more sence...

I'm just curious...and I lived in Bristol,TN(pop 42,000) before I headed south ...25 miles to MntCity

I talk to folks with rv's when we go Kayaking and ask how long you been here?were are you going?and am surprised how many people have the next few years planned out to almost the month

Good luck with food stand
