An Eventful Travel Day

Only a little over 200 miles today since we wanted to do some laundry. Unfortunately, we didn’t choose the best place to do that, we stopped at the KOA in Van Horn, Texas, nice place with great hosts but they only have 4 washers and 2 dryers and another couple that pulled in the same time had the same idea. Thank goodness they were huge dryers that dried fast so it wasn’t so bad.

Another item to mention today, is thank goodness for truck drivers. We have always liked having the big rigs around us and we always turn our lights off and on when they have cleared us while passing. This really nice looking rig was passing us when he got side by side and slowed down and began waving to us and pointing to our roof…we immediately pulled over and he did as well. We got out and began looking at our roof and could not figure what was going on, so Jerry got on the roof as the driver walked back to me and explained that we had been the talk of the CB for a few miles because our a/c cover was flapping in the wind. While Jerry removed it, I had a nice conversation with the truck driver, he was a NASCAR fan and told some great adventures he has done for Junior’s team.

Once camped we attempted to tape and glue it where it was cracked in several different places since the nearest Camping World is 600 miles down the road, hopefully, the glue and tape will hold up until we get there in a few days.

Weather is windy, cold, and calling for icy showers…had the same prediction for Deming, New Mexico, where we stayed last night but didn’t happen, hopefully they are wrong here as well. If it gets bad, we will just stay an extra day…will see in the morning what comes through the night.
