Neighbors, Community and event’s

10 am and 87 degrees out. Last night Brent and a couple of the neighbors ran to Albuquerque to buy some railroad ties Brent found on the Market place. Though we didn’t get any ourselves, both neighbors needed them and didn’t have a vehicle big enough to haul them. Brent being Brent offered his truck and drove them. This morning he went to unload the ties, and help plant some posts.

We love how most of the neighbors come together and help each other. We do community events here and Dusty Nail General Store sells items we all have made art, jewelry, wash clothes plus other items.

Community events all the funds go back towards the community and community needs. The West Mesa Haunted Hay Ride is such an event. This year it will run for two nights. This Hayride isn’t for the faint of heart.

During your camping we have a neighbor that offers meals and eggs delivered to your campsite. She also cooks during events such as the Nomad Gathering in the Desert . Her menu can be found on the website.

You are welcome to come camp and or attend an event and experience this magical, beautiful landscape, atmosphere yourselves!
