Trip to TX Day Three


                               Scenery changes the further East that I go.

                                                   More green!

In the morning it was still cloudy, but no rain when I left Ft Stockton.  (I went past where that RV park was supposed to be, never saw it.) 

The scenery was getting prettier, more and more green interspersed with wild flowers, yellow, pink and lots of bluebonnets.  If you click on the picture below you can see the bluebonnets.


Still cloudy, but rain until I turned off heading south on TX 83.  The first thing that I see was a sign saying, “pavement ends  20 miles.  Oh No!  I sure don’t need to take my rig down 37 miles of dirt road.  So I continued thinking of the worst conditions that I could think of.  Just before I get there, a new sign.   The road work lasts for only 8 miles.  Well that’s a little better!  Now when I actually get to the road work, signs say rough road and no center line.  It’s getting better, there were patches of already fixed road, most with center line.  At about 7 1/2 miles into the road work there is finally a road crew. Only one side of the road is torn up and there is a lead vehicle escort through the construction on the one lane that is still good.

The only reason I went into so much detail is because that was the highlight of this part of the trip, that and a couple of sprinkles of rain.

The rest of the trip was on a good road.  I got to Garner State Park at about 1:00 pm.

I met with Rick who took me around to the various sites to figure out where I would park “My Spot”.  I am in the Shady Meadows Area, right behind the VC where I will be working.  The WiFi is available, but for some reason I get an error when I try to post on my blog , on their WiFi or tethered  to my phone, so you might get these all at once that I get this glitch figured out.

Thanks again for visiting

  1. I'm sure you are glad to finally get settled. Wi-fi is sometimes frustrating when traveling in an RV.

  2. I wondered why I suddenly had a bunch of your posts. I didn't think I was missing you each day. :)

    Glad you made it safe and sound. You must be very relieved to be there. Good job driving that far from Sacramento!!!
