We are in Texas and in Lajitas near Big Bend National Park. Today we took a ride to Presidio, Texas and this is just a few of the pictures I took along the way. When we arrived on Friday the "plan" was to spend three nights here. After realizing just how much there is to see we decided to spend a week. Will we see everything in a week? The answer is no but we will enjoy what we do experience. As I get caught up to real time there will be a post about today and a lot more pictures. It was a beautiful day under blue skies; it was a good day!

Today we left the Amana RV Park after three nights and we are headed south to Texas. We discussed different routes and destinations but there are two bucket list places we have wanted to visit in Texas so we are on our way.
The leaves were showing us some beautiful color as we traveled along. The start of our Ninth Adventure and we are still grateful to be living our retirement dream.
|"Back to the Future"
Tonight's stop was the Lathrop Rest Area in Missouri along I- 35. Even though we were right next to the Interstate I remember we slept amazing well.

Still heading south under lovely blue skies.
|Lathrop Rest Area in Missouri.
|Going by Kansas City.
|Then we were in Kansas.
Missed the sign.

We were even on Route 66 for a few miles.
We spent the night at the Walmart in Muskogee, OK.

Leaving the Walmart parking lot we are still heading South and today's goal to spend the night in a Texas Safety Rest Area South of Dallas.
|Not much traffic yet and it is clear sailing
under partly cloudy skies.
|I have no idea???
Just thought it looked interesting.
|Beautiful lake on both sides of the highway.
|There is a breeze and we are still seeing beautiful color.
|We have crossed into Texas.
We made it and in a few miles the Stinger "B" pulled into the Hill County Safety Rest Area near Hillsboro, TX where we would spend the night.

Having our coffee and letting our day unfold. Our water pump is acting up, it does not shut off on its own, since, we do a lot of dry camping a pump is an essential piece of equipment. The first call is to a campground near Waco to see if they have an opening for the next few days. They do and we are booked in. Next call was to a mobile rv repair. Tom had done some research yesterday and when we asked the person at the RV Park for a recommendation it was the first suggestion she made. Though she did text us the names of several others in the area.
|If you are in the Waco area and need help we would
highly recommend this gentleman.
Tom gave him a call and after explaining our problem he had a few questions about where we were along with where we were headed. He was near a Walmart not far from the rest area and suggested we meet there. T

A late start today, we did not pull out of the park until a little after 11 o'clock. We are retired and just did not move that fast this morning.
|Had to take a picture of their sign.
We are going through Rosebud, Texas.
|as we drove even further south.
Tonight we are stopped at the Walmart in Pt. Lavaca, Texas. Tomorrow a Bucket List Location gets a check mark next to it.
