Traveling to New Mexico

Pretty boring day, actually. We left San Antonio a few minutes past 9am and headed northwest on I-10, having a six hour drive ahead of us. The plan was to stop for the night in Fort Stockton, TX.

It was an easy drive. The highway was a smooth ride, thank goodness. A nice change from the horrible road conditions on I-10 in Louisiana! All we could see for miles was Texas countryside. Every once in awhile we'd see a house, but not many. This was our view for the entire trip:

Oh, and then for a few miles we saw windmills and every so often some oil rigs. Here we saw both:

That was it for the day! We'll have a short day tomorrow, just three hours to Lakewood, New Mexico. We hope to stay in the Escapees Park there. I say "hope" because Escapees Parks don't take reservations, so we're going in blind. Not in my comfort zone, but hey we're retired! We'll figure out something!

Until the next time . . .
