Since we had a very short drive and get good internet, we lingered this morning. I was hoping to catch up a bit . . . . yeah right. Paul had washed the windshield last night, but it did not last. Bugs were bouncing off it immediately after we reached 83 South.

We had to drive through the town of Childress, Texas, where gasoline was priced at $2.11 per gallon. That is the lowest we have seen all trip!

After setting up camp, we got busy cooking. I made tacos for dinner and cut up everything I needed to put in the crockpot beans tomorrow.

The spaces here are huge. We do not have shade though and it got to 100 degrees. They have a nice pool if it gets unbearable. However, we have gotten pretty skilled at keeping the inside of the ‘Beast’ a reasonable temperature.

Wildlife Spotted: None (Lots of Livestock though)
