May 4-6, 2014 – Traveling from Arizona to Texas
On the road again – we left Apache Junction on Sunday, May 4th and are heading to South Texas where we will spend a little time with Rex’s daughter Jen and Jeremy. We drove to Benson, AZ where we stopped to see our friends Leroy and Jinx. We spent the night at their resort – San Pedro RV Resort and enjoyed visiting with them and their little Shih Tzu, Peppy. Monday morning we left Benson and headed west into Texas. We spent Monday night at the Saddleback Mountain RV Park in Balmorhea, TX and Tuesday night at the Bar M RV Resort in Pleasanton, TX. Unfortunately we had a couple of minor mishaps on the way – we stopped for lunch at a rest area between Balmorhea and Pleasanton and Rex noticed that some of the tread had come off a tire on the 5th wheel. We were very lucky he noticed it as it would have blown out very shortly. Then a short ways down the road after leaving Pleasanton, Rex noticed something white hitting the pavement behind the Jeep. When we stopped he discovered that the hard plastic cover for the air conditioner had torn loose and was demolished when it hit the pavement. So now we have to purchase a new tire and a new cover for the air conditioner.
We arrived in Falfurrias, TX on Wednesday afternoon and are staying at the Countryside RV Park which is where Jen and Jeremy are living in their 5th wheel.
