Fun, Fun Fun!!

Wednesday May 28 - Long Travel Day

Last night Crazy Chuck was doing a lot of banging into our windows, but our boys didn’t like it at all and they let him know it by barking at him. We think it scared him at first until he realized they couldn’t get him then he did it more. This went on all evening, it was very entertaining.

We were up early again this morning, as we wanted to get an early start. It was very cool this morning temps were 54 degrees. We were ready to move to the dump station by 8:15. But not before Chuck gave us one last bang. He banged into our wind shield in the truck. I guess it was his way of saying good bye to the boys. There was no line for dumping. This was actually our first time dumping at a station. Jesse did marvelous, while I took pictures.

Then much to our dismay we were on way to Wal*Mart. You see we had been having a slow leak in the rear passenger tire since we left. Jesse had been keeping a close eye on it. Well this morning he finally found the reason. We had a screw in the tire. So we were off to get that repaired.

Went we got there we were told that it would be about an hour before they could get to us. We asked about going somewhere else close and they sent us to a Goodyear tire place; Canyon Tire & Auto on 23rd Street. (If you are in the area and need help) By this time it had started to mist some and very cool. They were very nice young men. They had the truck jacked up with the RV still attached, the tire off and repaired in no time. Within 30 minutes we were on our way. They even gave Jesse a faster route to get to 287 South.

That was our route today TX 287 South for 328 miles. The drive was uneventful. It started to get warmer around noon, the temps reached 90. We never stopped for lunch. By the time we arrived at our destination at 4:00 we were very tired, thirsty and hungry. I know, I know. What had I done all day but sit there? Jesse drove all day.

Well I kept him entertained. I wrote and posted the journal, I took a nap, I made him stop more times then he wanted to for potty breaks. That was hard work. LOL :~)

Anyway we are here for just an overnight. It’s a Passport America Park that has 40 sites. Most are large drive throughs, which is what we have and we stayed hooked to the truck. They are building another 40 sites here that should open soon. One of the owners Jan Parish, asked if were would be doing camp hosting. I told we would, so I gave her a card to contact us in the future. Always good to keep our options opened.

I made Taco Salad for dinner and then we relaxed in front of the TV and computers until bed.
See you down the road.
