Tonight we are in Midland Texas.
Garden Spot of the US... Not!
We had planned on visiting Hot Springs Arkansas and spending a couple of days
but cold weather continues to push us west.
Our travel map for Fri, Sat, and Sunday
We left Asheville NC with snow and 27 degree temps.
Below is heading west thru the Appalachians on I-40
7 hours after leaving Asheville we were on Pin Oak Lake
in Natchez Trace State Park in Western Tenn.
Its a lovely state park and we would have loved to dawdle but
we were in search of warmth.
On Saturday we pushed west another 450 miles to Texarkana, Tx
and the Shady Pines RV Park.
Upon arrival we were greeted with 75 degree temps... nice!
The park is just southwest of town on some nice ponds.
Its a pretty location with good services and only $27.
Here at the park we found an interesting RV of sorts.
A 1928 Ford.
This morning we left Texarkana and pushed another 500 miles west and are now
in Midland, Tx where we will spend the night.
Tomorrow will be Deming, New Mexico then on to Catalina State Park
in Tucson where we will spend 5 days tending to our road sores.
We also made appointments at an Optometrist for eye exams and then
will pick up some new eyeglasses before we head to Europe.
One sad note:
If you've followed our blog for a while you know about
Mary Coyles Ice Cream in Phoenix.
We learned from our friends that after almost 70 years,
on Sept 30th Mary has closed her doors.
Another institution gone.
We are thankful that we had the chance to experience the nostalgia before it closed,
and thanks again to Lindsay for sending us in that direction.
A reminder once again that nothing is forever...
So enjoy life while you can.
We will do our part.
