We Are On The Move

By the time we moved the trailer to the RV park storage lot and dumped our tanks we were rolling by 9:30.  I think the cowboy is ill—we only traveled 340 miles today!!!!  We ran into some nasty road construction just outside Artesia, NM—the road crews responsible for setting out the warning barrels forgot that something bigger than a Volkswagen might use those roads!!!  The left hand side of the road dropped off sharply and the barrels were way, way too close, Michael struggled to miss each one but we did clip two or three of the dang things—no damage to the coach thank goodness!! 

We traveled through cotton fields:

IMG_0111We passed by this anatomically correct critter Smilestanding watch over the highway—he was huge!!:

IMG_0501We are settled into a little city park in Throckmorton, TX—full hookups, $15—can’t beat that!!

Onward tomorrow, depending on weather, roads and traffic we might or might not make it to my family home.


  1. Yep, we are familiar with Throckmorton Texas alright:))

  2. Bet you make it home. That's just a hop, skip and jump for the Cowboy. Wishing you a Merry Christmas with your family.

  3. Of course you'll make it home......................

  4. I don't know that I've ever seen brick streets outside of Old Town Sacramento - and those are very noisy to drive on! Can't imagine brick-layers putting down a whole main street......what a job :-( That is a very impressive critter. You must be so excited to see your family and to be with them for the holidays. Travel safe no matter how long it takes.
