I was in bed really early last night. Like at 9 I finally gave up with trying to read. I kept falling asleep! I should have napped earlier upon arrival, I guess. I woke at 11 feeling like I’d been asleep for many hours but dropped off again without any problem. It was early when I woke again on Sunday, Nov. 17th but didn’t get up until 6:30. It isn’t that we are on a deadline or a rush to get out and on the road, but when we’re up and ready, why dawdle? There wasn't much to pack up ........ well until Bill opened the closet. EEEEKK! 95% of my clothes and half of Bill's were on the floor. I guess we had no need to open those doors last night after that bumpy ride. LOL
|So, the day started out with construction|
and cotton clouds
Sunday - construction - yes some guys were working
The Road Warrior in the title came from blogger friends, Dave and Cheryl. We don’t sight-see much and hardly at all in comparison to their travels. I like to think of them as the Historians/Adventurers of the Snowbirds on our friends’ list. 😊 I love to see how we are all different that way. I remember meeting them during our 2nd year of travel at Pilot Knob. At that time, their first year (I think) Cheryl wasn’t sure how long she could stay away from home. Arizona and travel is addicting! You go guys!
Now, this is a beautiful drive. Once we were through the subdivisions around San Antonio and construction (workers were actually out today!?) what a gorgeous drive. The flat lands slowly disappeared and our elevation was up and down between 1500’ to 2200’. Yay! Now the views that we love are starting to appear all around us. We were both noticing many prickly pear cacti and yuccas with tall empty flower stems.
way, we saw many deer off in the fields eating but one baby was on the side of
the road and it made us fearful of what would happen to him. He appeared to be
looking for Mama. I was too busy watching him and pointing him out to Bill that
I wasn’t ready with the camera, even though I saw him in plenty of time. I hope
he listened when Bill called to him “Get away from the road, little guy!”
|I love when the views go on forever|
|There was nothing here at the Picnic Area but we didn't need anything other than to stop and open up|
That's when I saw this bonus structure
Not old, but neat all the same
|The clouds were breaking up and the temperature rose|
|Looks like the road goes forever - it was very peaceful|
A highway Bill said would be perfect for me to take over the wheel
Yah, he's right IF I needed to
|This, my friends, is crazy!! 90 mph is 130 kmh back home|
|This was a parking area where we stopped for a doze and our lunch|
It was quiet, only one other rv and a semi arrived
It looks like a fine spot, lower than the interstate so much quieter even though it is ‘right there’. It isn't the cleanest area but there are a couple of nicely sheltered picnic tables. Bill was a little nervous, “is it safe?”. I asked him from what and his little voice said "bad people?" but I don’t see a problem. I sure hope not to have to change that story tomorrow morning! We settled against a curb, leaving us lots of space to open slides in the event someone else pulled in too. It was 3 pm so still a good day of driving without arriving too late.

|You might see some duplicate pictures since I loaned mine to Bill|
That's what you do when one of you has to drive, right?
|We originally backed in here beside the shelter but|
it wasn't level
|And the sun sets to the west|
|An over the fence and over I-10 view|
|From our door, this is how close we are to the Interstate|
but it is surprisingly quiet
Because it is Sunday night?
|I peeked out the blind, just before it dropped out of sight|
Good night from Saragosa, TX
