Midland Tx

Just a quick post tonight to catch you up.
We've been in Trucker Mode - dashing cross country for the last couple of days
and now are in the West Texas City of Midland.

Midland is famous as the home of George W. Bush.

Its a gritty dusty place - not much to excite us here but we've merely stopped
here as an overnighter on our dash west.

Before Getting here however we first had to leave Asheville NC.
While in Asheville I roasted some coffee beans as our supply was running low.
The tailgate of the truck works just fine in a pinch.

Leaving Ashville we drove 400 miles west to Natchez Trace State Park
in Western Tennessee.
It was a beautiful wooded state park and our full hookup campsite on the lakeshore
was a real bonus.   It would have been nice to spend more time here but we are on a roll.

Another 400 miles yesterday put us in Texarkana, Tx.
We stayed at a very nice RV Park.
The Shady Pines RV park.   Nice, clean park and only $23 a night.
It was a very rainy night but we had the fireplace going and we were warm and snug.

Finally today we did another 500 miles and landed here in Midland.

Tomorrow we have a 450 mile run to a very cool place...
City of Rocks State Park in NM.
We will only be there for a night but it is my first time there and I've wanted to check
it out so this will give me a taste for future reference.

Then Tuesday we have our final push - 400 miles
 to Lake Pleasant Regional Park in the Northwest Phoenix Metro.
We will stay there for 4 nights and allow us to get ready for Wednesday which
is going to be a busy day...

Meanwhile - tonight I have the Broncos on TV and its the 4th quarter
and its going well.

Stay tuned...


  1. Ahhhh... The City of Rocks State Park... One of my favorite places!!!!! We spent about 5 days there. I absolutely love that place. It is magical.

    You guys are really putting on the miles. WOW!

  3. Wild man on the run, truck in crazy man! Hey get some good rocks to tumble out there in NM. Be safe.

  4. Do you know I lived in Las Cruces as a kid? My dad went to undergrad school at NMSU. There was a GREAT Mexican restaurant in town called "La Posta." Maybe you'll have time to find it. Have fun!
