Boy, that was fast! The last 2 days flew by and we woke up this morning in NEW MEXICO! As of yesterday, we are no longer Texans for a while.
We departed Retama Village in Mission, TX, Monday morning about 8am and drove 400 miles to our favorite roadside park about 40 miles West of Del Rio, TX right along Hwy 90. It was a great trip and everything went smooth as silk. We thank the Lord for being our “Co-Pilot”!
We love this spot! It’s back off the road and is very private and quiet. Plus, it’s beautiful!
That bridge is Hwy 90 over the Pecos River where it dumps into the Rio Grande. We stopped here last year when we discovered this place by mistake. We were looking for another roadside park just down the road but lucked out and found this one. What a wonderful discovery…..
We got there about 4:45pm, just in time to catch a little late Happy Hour. Ms Pat is enjoying the beautiful sunset as she looks out from the shelter towards Mexico, where the Pecos runs into the Rio Grande….
Even Ms Megabyte2 enjoyed the sights and Sunset! I was enjoying it so much I almost missed getting a picture. Here it is all ready below the horizon…..but trust me it was superb.
The next morning was another beautiful day. We left about 7:30 am. The sun was rising behind us as we continued on West. I was a little concerned because the wind came up during the night and blew something fierce. But this morning, it was quiet and calm. See...I told you God was our "Co-Pilot".
Ms Pat was eager to take the controls of the big 450hp Cummins diesel and chalked up a few hundred miles of “stick time” driving the Rig down the road. She is a good driver and continues to get familiar with the Foretravel. It was a big help to me too, as we chalked up 477 miles and arrived at the “Dreamcatcher” Escapee’s RV Park in Deming NM at 4:30pm. Of course, it was only 3:30 here, so were again just in time for Happy Hour!!
We woke up this morning to 14 degrees. YIKES!!! I'm happy to say that this "AquaHot" in the Foretravel is wonderful. We are snug as a bug in a rug! Nice and warm and didn't have to touch a drop of Propane.. So far this Rig is working out superb and we are "Lovin" everything about it.. Today we have an easy drive of 215 miles to Tucson,AZ. We will stop and spend some time with the Grandsons Michael and Stephen. I’m sure they miss their Father as much as we do and it will be good to see them.
Thursday morning we will complete our journey for the last 300 miles or so on up to North Ranch. We are anxious to get there and settle into our HOME….Our FIRST "stick & bricks" home in 15 years!! It's exciting! Paul and Nancy....we are sure looking forward to seeing you guys. We will stop at your place FIRST and unhook our toad….sometime tomorrow!!
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!
Thanks for stopping by.....see you Sunday from HOME!!
