There was road noise through most of the night on highway 69, but I did sleep fairly well till about 6 a.m. I decided to get up and check to see if the Flying J next door to the Walmart had showers, but they didn’t. I am sure to get one tonight because I plan to spend the next two nights at an RV park in Sonora, Texas, if I can get that far today.
Took a little time to set up my new Garmin, and I am sure glad I did. It was a 434 mile trip, and even though I started at 8 a.m., I did not arrive at the RV park till 6 p.m. I hope this is the longest drive till I am on the return trip.
I must admit, there is not much of anything in this part of Oklahoma and Texas. The route that Garmin gave me took me around the Dallas/ Fort Worth metropolitan area and I must say that is a long around. I must have gone through half the small towns located in the northern an western sides of the cities.
Soon I entered Texas. About half the roads were two lane and the speed limit in Texas is 75, so my 55-60 created a lot of people passing me. Luckily, most of these roads did not have a lot of traffic. It was time to put my western hat on. Starting to look a little like the southwest with those cactus and ranches.
