8:21pm Central Time – Childress, TX, en route to New Mexico.
Last night we were able to make it through Mississippi and into Louisiana where we spent the night at a rest stop! Not my favorite place to sleep, but sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do!
Today we’ve spent most of the day driving through the great big state of TEXAS! We have been skirting the edges of bad weather and still ended up in some of the highest winds we’ve experienced in the motorhome! You know, the kind where they say “high profile vehicles should be advised to use caution!” Tim has had both hands firmly on the steering wheel all day, and he’s doing a great job of keeping it between the lines.
This is the original looking Texas style rest stop that we saw earlier today! Oil wells are not the most attractive things I’ve ever seen, but somehow they look good in Texas!
We always make some fun stops on these long driving days to keep everyone happy. Gap Outlet is one of my favorites! That was our first stop and I did manage to find a few bargains. Then we found such a cool shop with a little of this and that in it. It was so big and packed with stuff that you really could spend hours there.
Most things were sadly too large to take home. Check out these extra large cheeseburgers!
This is something I would love to have in my house so I took a photo in the hopes that Tim will build me one! I would like mine in blue!
Guess what I bought in this giant store! An ornament, that’s it!!! Oh well, it’s easy to pack!
All that shopping made everyone hungry so we stopped for a lovely dinner of catfish and frog legs!
Now we’re all settled in and on the road and trying to make it to New Mexico!
Even long days on the road are a blast!!
Tomorrow, Lord willing, we will be in Santa Fe, NM!
