As I mentioned in my previous post, it was a mistake to do the trip in 2 days. It should be done in 3 days or more. A lot of full-time RVers do the same, travel either 4 hours or 200 miles per day. Anything more is tiring.
Amarillo to San Angelo
We left on a Thursday morning, heading towards San Angelo State Park. It was a relief to finally travel again, and the really cool thing was that we left on our 1 year anniversary of our arrival in Amarillo. Fitting tribute, we thought. 🙂
Cleo was not used to the travel, and did not react well for the first hour or two of driving. She snubbed us most of the time. 🙂
We finally reached San Angelo State Park, but we were not happy with the delay getting to our site. We had to check in at one place, then drive another 8-10 miles to the entrance. We finally found our RV space, but we ended up setting up in 100 degree heat. That was not fun. Beautiful spot, though.
San Angelo to Rockport
As hard as the trip to San Angelo was on Thursday, it was even longer on Friday as we drove to Rockport. Not only was our drive at least 6 hours, we had to drive our RV through a major city (San Antonio) right as lunch hour hit on a summer Friday.
Once we made it through San Antonio, we made no more stops. We just wanted to get to our RV “home” for the next two weeks.
We were placed between two park models with seasonal owners, so there were very few people in our area.
On our next post, I’ll share some of our adventures from our first weekend in Rockport.
