Back on the road!

It felt great to get back on the road again. Sherman was raring to go, and we headed out of the ranch right at 9:00am yesterday morning.

Big thanks to Joy, Tracy, Arin and the family for letting us stay there! We look forward to a return visit in the future.

First stop was the town of Pampa where they have a free RV dump. Emptied the tanks, and then headed to the gas station where we topped things up at $1.28 USD per gallon ($0.48 CAD per liter). Fuel will start getting more expensive as we head north.

So, with empty holding tanks and a full gas tank and a full fresh water tank, we hit the road.

Beautiful sunny day, but it was windy.

We made it as far as Dumas, where we knew there was a free camping area. It's really just a parking lot and not ideal, but we had enough of driving in the wind and decided to stay the night.

It wasn't bad sitting in the shade though.

Free overnight and use of the 15, 30, or even 50 amp electricity for 24 hours maximum. There are three other vehicles here as well, but we didn't talk to any of them.

Yesterday's drive 83 miles (133 kms).

The wind has died down, and we are hitting the road again at 9:00am this morning and headed for Oklahoma.

Nice price drop on Camco's Rhino 36 Gallon RV Waste Holding Tank.

And in Canada...

  1. Very few things I like better than the sight of a lonely highway in front of my big ol' RV windshield.

    1. That is exactly how we feel too! We always dread getting onto a busy interstate highway, when we know that there are roads like this out there. :-)

  2. Don't like traveling on Windy Days either but do appreciate the scenery along the open road.
    Safe Travels and Enjoy the scenery.

    It's about time.

  3. Good find with that free electricity! Safe travels.

    1. Lots of these little towns have free or next to free overnight parking here in Texas. Too bad more places didn't offer places like this. In normal times most RVers would then go out and visit the town and spend some money there. Makes sense to us!
