|At last... on our way east!|
The trip from Las Cruces, NM to Van Horn, TX could have been much better were there a way to avoid El Paso. This is perhaps our 3rd time thru here and the traffic is no better. And, even though I had thought it impossible, the smog is even worse than last time. But, like a root canal, it was eventually over and we felt better.
|Van Horn KOA... every site is a pull-thru!|
Actually, we're not very weary as we only had a 175 mile day. Tomorrow's trip to San Angelo, TX will be our longest so far while towing- close to 300 miles. Some might think us wimps, but we've arbitrarily set 250-300 miles as our daily limit.
In preparation for a fast getaway we haven't unhitched. While it'll be convenient in the morning, it means the trailer rocks & rolls. When the dogs scratch at their harness, the whole floor leaps around like a California earthquake.
The KOA here in Van Horn has a small cafe which is why we didn't have to unhitch. We had dinner last nite and breakfast this morning. Van Horn is definitely not a luxury resort, but this was pretty darn close!
More coming from San Angelo...
