...and the adventure continues,
Thursday, July 2, day 34, Thursday is a drive day from San Antonio TX to Fort Stockton TX. We arrived at The Fort Stockton RV Park, in Fort Stockton in the mid-afternoon. It's located right off of I-10. The park met our needs and I need to mention The Roadrunner CafÃ© at the RV Park... we thought we were sitting in a house with home cooking! The menu is limited but very good. Everything was homemade, like fried catfish and biscuits and gravy... we had dinner and breakfast, they were some of the best meals we had during our adventure.
Friday, July 3, day 35, A driving day from Ft Stockton TX to Las Cruses NM. No excitement... just rolling along at about 60 mph... up the hills and down the hills and the flat lands... just 60 mph... but, we are averaging 9 mpg. When setting up the fuel budget we used 6 mpg for a dollar budget of $3,000 for the trip. At an average of 9 mpg it looks like we'll use about $2,000 in fuel.
Saturday, July 4, day 36, Today we used the toad to roam around Las Cruses... a very beautiful area... we drove up into the hills where there were huge housing developments and a lot of empty lots and empty completed homes, a very visual reminder of the housing bust. The views from the residential streets looking into the mountains was spectacular. Tonight we ordered a pizza and watched the fireworks from the RV park.
... not too much excitement these last fews days... we are seeing some amazing countryside as we drive along I-10... West Texas and New Mexico have been great drives. Tomorrow we are heading to Tuscon for the night and then the last leg takes us from Tuscon AZ back to Cathedral City (Palm Springs) CA.
... stayed turned,
Dale, Trudy and Doug
