Texas: Leaving Amarillo

Getting ready to leave Amarillo.

It’s true. After 15 months in Amarillo, we are headed to the Rockport area to be “Winter Texans.”

A wide angle view of our RV site, with our neighbor’s Scamp in the next site.

Bob’s employer has finally allowed him to be remote, and not just within a 2 hour range of Amarillo. My employer hired me as a remote employee, so they have no issues with location.

We drove the first leg of our trip to Big Spring, Texas. In this part of Texas, we are in the heart of oil field country, and most RV parks cater to those workers. That means a lot of gravel sites, though this RV park has paved roads leading to the sites.

Hooking up electric, water, and sewer after we arrive. Normally, we would just do electric, but our gray tank needed emptying.
A beautiful day in Big Spring!

The drive was fine, but it did reveal that we have at least one mechanical issue to deal with once we arrive on the Gulf coast.

Cleo handled this road trip better than the last trip. She stayed on her quilt for the entire drive, unless we were stopped. Then she demanded attention. 😂

It’s always fun pulling in to a rest area with RV and/or tractor trailer parking spaces. We stopped at this one to eat lunch and give Cleo some attention.
