Trip-Day 4- 2160.5 Miles So Far

But I should be at my destination tomorrow. I’m Close! We left the Leisure Mountain RV Park in Tijeras, NM (after a good, hot, shower!) @ about 0700 and just got checked in here at the Camper’s Paradise RV Park in Sunset, Tx. These folks are really nice. Good Military discount too!

Rest Stop In Southern Utah

Other than a 50 mile detour because of some massive accident (or incident) the ride was pretty boring. Did go through a rain storm; some wind, lots of rain, but no lightning or thunder.

Stopped in Memphis, Tx and got lunch. Fed the dog a warm hamburger patty cause he’s been a good puppy. Later, though, he shit a stream of shit (outside Thank Goodness) to rival runny shits anywhere. Guess there was too much fat in that burger! Note to self for next time …

My God, Texas is flat! Rolling hilly driving, but you can see forever to the horizon. Got caught in a hell of a head wind that kept my rpm’s way up, and my speed right around 60. Got into Texas, went around a bend, and my speed kicked up 3 mph and the rpm’s dropped to 1500+. Cool! Spent a lot on gas today though; cause of that head wind. Luckily, gas dropped to around $2.10/gal so that was better.

Anywho, we’re plugged in and have power. I need to buy a longer water hose before I can hook up water; but that’s a minor inconvenience. There are showers available and I’ll be using that tomorrow morning. (I’m a morning shower person unless I’ve gotten dirty; in which case I’ll shower before bed. And again in the morning.)

I sure miss my lovely young bride! Trip would be a whole lot better if she were along for the ride. I just plain miss her. This is my first major trip anywhere without her (if you don’t count being sent to Desert Storm).
