So it was almost 11:30am by the time we finally got on the road. But almost all of our drive yesterday was on the I-30 highway, so we made good time. It sure is boring driving most Interstate highways, but you can definitely do a lot of miles in a fairly short time.
Crossed into Texas at about 2:00pm and had some lunch at the visitors center.
This is what you see on the Interstate.
We pulled into the city of Mount Pleasant and did some grocery shopping. Also picked up a few supplies for Mexico. We've been trying to buy a little at every stop, and of course adding things to the list that we happen to think of along the way! By this time it was getting late and I was just about done with driving for the day. We found a county park on Lake Monticello that even has electric and water hookups and a dump station. We didn't need any of these things and that made our campsite $4 for the night. It is an additional $7 for hookups, which still makes this a great price if you happen to need hookups.
We have found in our travels that county parks are some of the best value for finding cheap camping. The problem is that they are difficult to find online. But I came across a secret website that I use a lot to find cheap camping opportunities like this. Don't tell anyone else, because this website is secret!
Sherman, parked up for $4 a night.
It turned into a beautiful day yesterday, and today is starting out with more of the same. Happy to be driving on Texas highways, we think they are some of the best highways in North America, even the backroads are in great condition. And I love the 70 mph backroads! Even though Sherman only does 55 mph, I like the fact that you can go fast if you want to! Everything's bigger in Texas.
Yesterday's drive 190 miles (304 kms).
