Recommended Posts

6/13/22 Carol and I left home for our first leg of trip to Ohio . We in Hendersen Nv visiting my daughter . 6/15/22 we are in Gallup NM .

an observation of hiway traffic so far , I would guesstimate traffic at about 10% above pandemic days of shut down . 
trucks are working hard many packs on roads and every fuel stop with parking is loaded with trucks , Also miles of trains loaded with double stacked 40 ft containers ! So industry is moving but cars , pickups , Rv’s really noticeable , we counted five class A’s DP ‘s and about same in fifth wheels From Fresno to Gallup NM . Last year when we went to RPRU in Da Quoin we had to reserve RV parks head of time they were packed so far no problem . Just fyi could all change when we get to Amarillo .

few pics of so far .last pic was leaving home , then parked at daughters cul da Sac.

My daughter Tammi ,  Carol , Brooke my Granddaughter ,my three loves of my life !  Brooke is really into volleyball and driving her 300U at cafes parades .

6/16/22  Did not make my beloved ,”Amarillo by morning “ BUT DID BY EVENING !!

all went well 6 1/2 hour uneventful drive ! Just like flying we love uneventful flights and drives ! My dear better half drove 21/2 hrs .

I love Amarillo and every time we visit here , I tell Carol , Can’t leave here , let’s call moving vans , and few  low boys for the girls in shed !

actually most of the panhandle would suit me but I am afraid I am to old to start farming cotton again ! Lol 

2 picture leaving Gallup NM and one on arrival at Oasis rv park .

tomorrow head to Oklahoma City .

btw weather all along so far has been like home 87 to 104 very little humidity light breezes

fyi we have traveled 1200 plus miles and it’s 1100 plus to sSpringfield Ohio .

Have a great trip Tony! My traveling is done until the doc give me a clean bill of health. Maybe early next month? 

You gotta be proud of a kid like your grand daughter!

When you hit exit 242 in Missouri i am only a mile North, if you need anything. I don't have full hookups but i could set you up with a level spot, water and electric.

Go ahead and move to Amarillo Tony!!  You wouldn't have to raise cotton anymore. My nephew could probably put you to work in his cotton gin at White Deer, Texas. (about 30 minutes from Amarillo)  Be safe out there compadre and keep posting pics of your travels.

On 12/15-16/21 I really thought I was gone with pneumonia and after my heart , it’s been seven months and I am just know getting stamina back ! That is why we have taught Carol to drive , I get a rest and nap , keeps me going .

A tip or suggestion. The Cracker Barrel restaurant in Richmond,Indiana I 70 will let you park your rv over night on the lot in back .

They said it was a benefit perk for eating the meal there. We stopped  there on the way back from Kansas City. The Check out inform us in the discussion as we checked out. i don’t remember how the topic came up . Just remember a huge rv in the parking lot  with a little white guard dog watching us as we walked back to the Holiday inn .
