Regina and I made it to Durant OK last night, staying at Choctaw KOA--- wifi is good this morning but last night was soooo slow.

Really lousy traveling weather yesterday, rain from 30 miles outside Springfield, strong head and crosswinds, and highway 69 from Big Cabin OK to Durant was one bumpy ride, won't be taking this road again. It was a rough pull.

This morning the weather looks bleak, I went out and walked Toby the Schnauzer at 6, wind blowing so hard bending bushes over...

Jim, keep trucking. Weather here is amazing. A cool breeze came across last night, but during the day it is hot..."hotter than Africa" were one attendees words!

You better get on the road if you want to make it for dinner the Robin. We have 15 trailers on site including a few SOBs...but we don't mind! We are currently brewing Independence coffee company tea and coffee, and it plans to be a hot one today!

Steve, what time is tonight's potluck? We got hung up in stopped traffic on I 10 and running behind anticipated arrival time. There was an accident with a Hummer pulling a travel trailer.

Regina and I made to the park in the most serendipious manner.

Going through Austin was horrible! Next time, if there is one, we'll take the toll road bypass. Lots of rear end collisions on I-35 and bumper to bumper traffic. Hint, we leave 3 or 4 car lengths from the vehicle in front of us because we can't stop on a dime, when you cut in front of us you don't gain anything.

So, heading South we decide that we aren't going to make San Antonio and will probably want to find a spot for the night. The Texas RV guide has the back cover for Pecan Park RV park, GPS puts us less than 10 miles away.

I tell Regina that I think that's the park where the Texas Airstream folks are rallying at.

We get to the park, get a spot in the shade, I run into SoldierMedic as I am registering, he says come to the pot luck after you park.

Now, we've been on the road for two days, bad weather, bad traffic and strong headwinds. all we want to do is park and sit somewhere that isn't moving.

Lots of pretty, shiny trailers in the park. Regina and I went into to town and stocked up on supplies and are enjoying the strong wi-fi in the park.

Although we didn't make it to dinner, we still like that we are part of that Airstream crowd and we are parked next to the Knudson's who gave us the idea to paint our bottom banana peels black.... they look sharp and really add a finishing touch to our 78 Sovereign.

Tomorrow it's on to San Antonio

(we didn't have a reservation at the park, lucked out and got this spot for one night only due to a cancellation.)

Jim, sorry Austin was such a nightmare. There is a toll road from San Antonio to north if Austin that you could take while going back home if you like.

Before you leave, I would like to get you one of the gift bags that I have here in site 323 (Where all the flags are).

Thanks Steve, but we missed you all. We were up and out of the park by 10:30-- had a nice run into San Antonio, already been to the Alamo and caught up in George Strait Martina McBride traffic, both foot and vehicular.

Seems like half this trip has been stuck in traffic! LOL!

We're heading over to Corpus Christi and then up through LA and AR on the way home-- we don't like to travel the same road twice....

It was nice seeing all the trailers in the park this morning..... saw one older Airstream on I-35 just north of San Antonio and a AS food trailer in downtown San Antonio.

Stumbled upon a really neat, derelict vintage trailer park in San Antonio while trying to get out of the traffic. I recognized a Spartan, an old Franklin and several 50s style trailers. Even the sign for the court was 50s style. It was neat but the place was really trashy. It was on Roosevelt Avenue.
