Not a lot to write about today. Just lots of driving and riding. 460 miles. Drove through a severe weather system just West of Fort Worth. Plenty of lightening and wind, but we made it through with no problems.
We have stopped for the night in a small Passport America park near Gordon, TX. Middle of nowhere place but it is really nice for the price. Neat clubhouse and Wi-Fi, along with satellite TV at our site. So far, we are the only ones here.
I love to stumble upon folks that think like I do. As the park is too far from town for cable or over the air signals, the owner provides satellite tv for those who want it. With the wind blowing about 40 miles an hour, making it difficult to sit outside, I subscribed for the night. $3.00 got me a remote control for the inside of the trailer, and my own receiver mounted on a pole outside the trailer.
I connected the cable to the Casita, turned on our tv, and powered up the receiver. Just point the remote at the receiver through the window of your trailer to change channels. Nothing to it, though It’s hard to train the mind to point the remote out the window rather than toward the tv. They have four of these setups in their little park. Pretty ingenious, I thought.
Hope to make Las Cruces, NM tomorrow……jc
