Time to move on

We're not going far this morning so I'll have the opportunity to do my water aerobics after our morning walk and breakfast. We'll be traveling a whole 50 miles up the road today, which certainly helps save fuel. The local Flying J's diesel was down to $2.71 yesterday so we filled our one empty tank (we have two; a 34 gallon tank and a 50 gallon tank)and thought we were paying a "good" price since our last fill up in Lake Havasu City was at $2.97 a gallon. In February we paid $1.99 a gallon at this same Flying J; sometimes keeping good records just ticks you off.

Some friends will be arriving at the same campground on the 3rd (gosh it's hard to believe it's going to be November already) and I'm looking forward to seeing them. Which gives me an idea of a couple of lists to post later...

Safe travels to all.

Hey, Nancy! We spent the first three months of 2001 in southern Texas along the Rio Grande (Harlingen, Laredo, Del Rio) then over to Big Bend National Park which I absolutely adored as the wildflowers were blooming madly. Up to Alpine, Ft. Davis (great museum at the college, camped at a "dude ranch", explored the observatory and discovered the Davis Mountain Nut Company, yum), watched the Marfa lights, over to Boerne (have to go back to explore Fredericksburg) and San Antonio. Was in Ft. Stockton in late September when it snowed 3 inches overnight after being in the 80s the day before. Did go to South Padre Island, was appalled by the trash on the beaches, but really enjoyed the Laguna Nature Trails as I saw my first roseate spoonbills in the wild. Visited friends camping at Port Aransas, but haven't really explore the coastal area much, nor much of the interior of Texas. Hubby wasn't thrilled with the harsh winds of the Rio Grande Valley for wintering; it messed up his golf game too much. Heh.
