Not part of the plan but we were almost to our planned stop in Miami, Oklahoma when we seen Downstream Casino and decided to stop. We have water and electric…a dump station…and they do not charge anything. We are finding that is the case with many of the Casino RV Parks in Oklahoma and we are taking advantage of it along our route. They also have an excellent Buffet…by getting a Play Card you get $2 off…we were also informed to do the lunch instead of dinner since the price is half as much but is just as good…for under $20 we had a great refreshing, very tasty lunch.
We did mostly Interstate driving again and will continue to do it almost all the way into Phoenix…we are getting much better gas mileage which is a great factor…gas is actually going down as we head West…not usually the case but we hope this trend continues. Gas prices were as low as $3.36 for unleaded and $3.70 for diesel…we have not seen those prices since way before beginning this journey.
We spent Sunday watching NASCAR...congrats to Greg Biffle and recuperating from our travels…plan to get back on the road again on Monday…heading for a Camping World since our levelers just decided to stop working…hopefully it will be a quick fix. It is so funny how you become accustomed to certain things. When we first got our rig, our levelers did not work and it stayed that way for quite a few months before we finally had them looked at and it ended up being a $4 part. Now, a day without them is an inconvenience we do not want to live with for more than a few days…funny how our attitudes change with the circumstances.
This got me thinking about how things seem to change in our lives…when in reality nothing changed but our attitudes. Having a bad day? Change it by changing your attitude…begin again…not by changing the circumstance but by changing how you feel about it…nobody can do it but yourself. We are choosing this more often than ever…yes…we have come a long way!
