New Mexico State Parks Annual Camping Permit

Here is a good deal for fulltimers out there, you can visit New Mexico's State Parks on a year long permit for out of stater's for a $225 fee. The fees for camp spots are reduced and are as follows.
Electric Hookup with Annual Camping Permit  $4
Sewage Hookup with Annual Camping Permit $4
Electric & Sewage Hookup with Annual Camping Permit $8
Normal rates are $10 more per night so for over a year period you would save $140 of the normal rate.
Campers may reside in a park for a maximum of 14 days during a 20 day period.
There are 34 state parks in New Mexico so you could stay at all the parks for a total cost of  $3,145 I would bet you couldn't beat that in a RV park.

City park camping

Ok so camping in a city park or walmart parking lot is not what I really consider camping, but sometimes you just need a break from the road and a city park may just fit the bill for a overnight or for 2 or 3 days.
Here are some city parks with 3 day free camping.

These are all  in Texas so they are camper friendly there, not all states are. The parks are top to bottom.
Waylon Jennings Park in Littlefield TX
Coleman Park in Brownfield TX
Levelland City Park in Levelland TX

I will post more city parks like this until I can make pages for each state.

Camping safety

We want to enjoy ourselves while camping and forget about all our problems and whats going on in the world, but lets not forget that the world is not always safe and when we put ourselves in remote areas we are on our own. Maybe you saw the news about the two full time campers down in Texas that were killed and their camper was driven to Mexico or how about one of the many bear attacks that happen.
We need to be ready to defend ourselves at all times when we are out there alone, we cannot depend on other humans good nature. Do not open your door at night without turning on your lights and looking out your windows to see who or what might be there. At least keep pepper or bear spray or a spray bottle of vinegar by your door, once your door comes open you are at a disadvantage since it opens outward and you may not be able to get it closed again. Trust no one that you don't know. Be safe and stay that way.
