DAY 99 - Thu Apr 30
Warm & muggy again. We took a short drive around Slidell to pick up supplies and get the truck washed. Back at the park, I met a lady in the laundry whose husband washes RV's on site. Told hubby about him, negotiated a very fair and reasonable price, and set it up for tomorrow. Baby's gettin' a bath!
DAY 100 - Fri May 1
I am COVERED in bites!!!! Not sure exactly what they're from, but everybody say they're "no-see-ums". No kidding, but they should...

DAY 94 - Sat Apr 25
Another warm, muggy night, followed by the same kind of morning. We went out to do laundry, and found a great laundromat on Manchaca Blvd S. We stopped for lunch on South 1st St at the "Trailer Park and Eatery" -- not really a trailer park, but there are two vintage trailers, one an Airstream and one a 1959 Shasta being used as food vendors. Very cool. Austin TX is very into using vintage Airstreams as offices, vendors, etc. Besides the ones shown here, there...

DAY 92 - Thu Apr 23
It was a warm night, followed by a warm morning, with hi's in the 80's and possibly 90's today. Rolling out of Tucumcari's Cactus RV Park by 9:30AM, heading I-40 east towards Amarillo TX. We got off I-40 at Vega TX for a bite to eat, then followed TX385 south towards Lubbock TX. Nice drive through the country. We followed US84 east towards I-20. We hit a HUGE storm at Justiceville TX with major crosswinds, lightening, then huge blowing rain and dust!! We had to slow down...

DAY 86 - Fri Apr 17
We awoke to another beautiful, sunny, windy day. We grabbed our coffees, and headed over to our Aunt's house in our pj's -- she was definitely surprised ! We told her we were staying at Moon River RV until Monday.
DAY 89 - Mon Apr 20
Packed and rolling by 9AM, heading North on AZ95 to Kingman, then I-40 East to Seligman. We stopped at Delgadillo's Snow Cap Drive-In for a bite, and were sad to learn that Mr. Delgadillo had passed away a few years ago. We met...
