But I should be at my destination tomorrow. Iâ€™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 Camperâ€™s Paradise RV Park in Sunset, Tx. These folks are really nice. Good Military discount too!
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 heâ€™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 â€¦
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 rpmâ€™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 rpmâ€™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, weâ€™re plugged in and have power. I need to buy a longer water hose before I can hook up water; but thatâ€™s a minor inconvenience. There are showers available and Iâ€™ll be using that tomorrow morning. (Iâ€™m a morning shower person unless Iâ€™ve gotten dirty; in which case Iâ€™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 donâ€™t count being sent to Desert Storm).
