Our youngest daughter presented me with a decal for the truck. Pretty much tells the story of our travels.
We left home on Saturday, the 29th. We were surprised to find that the Corp of Engineers parks were still open during the Gov. shutdown. We made our usual stop at Sandy Creek near Jasper, TX for Saturday night, then on to Crane’s mill on Canyon Lake near San Antonio for the nights of the 30th. and 31st. While there, Sally was attacked by a loose dog while I was walking her in the campground. Though she sustained a puncture in the middle of her back that required a visit to the vet, I think I got the worse end of the deal.
We both are on the mend at present.
We departed Crane’s mill early on New Years Day. I found an open immediate care clinic and got a tetanus booster before we hit I-10. The temperature kept dropping, and it was below freezing when we reached Ft. Stockton around 3PM. We stopped there for the night, and hit the road again early Wednesday morning. The temperature was 23* and the deicing trucks were running I-10. I drove most of the way to Van Horn at 50 mph, or less.
After Van Horn, the road was dry and we made it to Deming, New Mexico just in time for the snow flurries and freezing fog.
We are staying in Deming for two nights, visiting with a dear friend that has been fulltiming in his Casita since 2003.
This afternoon I visited the local museum in town. Quite a collection of most everything connected to the area, and more. Here’s a random tour. If you’re ever in Deming, it worth a visit. The price is right, just a donation.
Lot’s of pottery and artifacts.
Like I said, lot of STUFF….jc
