A milestone moment.
The past 5 days cranking out the miles across Texas on I-10 felt like a marathon. Probably because it is. Almost 900 miles in the saddle (as we say in Texas).
There was a lot of this ....
... and a lot of Rest Areas breaks ...
... where I toasted a lot of tortillas.
Yearning to escape the gravity of endless West Texas, I was happy just to see the simulated state line pop up on my GPS. No offense to my Texan blog-readers!
With the low temps, I’ve been burning through the propane and, desperate for a refill, I spent an enormous amount of time today searching for some. Due to the cold snap and the influx of snowbirds (like me), everyone I tried in Fort Stockton was out.
I finally located a stash at a Flying J outside of El Paso. After all that searching, the fill-up was momentous enough to warrant a photo.
I’m staying the night in a nice Escapees campground in Deming, NM - Dreamcatcher RV Park. I’m all plugged in and cozy in anticipation of another sub-freezing night.
