Van Horn, TX Restrictions

I was looking at our route today and considering where to rest for a few when I found this on my Google search. I don't know if this is old news, but it does surprise me. We frequently like to rest a few hours, usually at Walmart, when are making long hops.

Pardon me if everyone already knows about this.

There's not much of interest in Van Horn in my estimation anyway...the last time we were through there we thought we might just stay there overnight, but the only RV park we could find was "questionable" so we got back on I-10 and continued east. There's a very nice rest stop just east of Van Horn where you can stay overnight...grass, ramadas for picnicing, WiFi near the main building...lots of truckers stop there to rest...as we did. It was actually a pleasant overnight stop...we'd do it again. (This was in 2009 on our way to Davis Mts State Park)...

The mayor of Van Horn probably owns that questionable RV park and wanted to make sure no one stays at Wal-Mart instead.

(I have no idea about the political scene in Van Horn, but I'm the cynical type!)
