Made it to Mingus, TX today. Texas, land of the Big Highway Bumps and the shortest entrance ramps ever! The road is actually pretty smooth, except everywhere there’s a bridge, there are huge bumps. When I arrived here at Desert Rose RV Park, a lot of stuff had been thrown out of the bins and both screws had worked their way out of the stove cover! Once I passed Ft. Worth, it got better. Entering TX from LA I saw the sign saying it was Mile Marker 615. 615 miles of Texas, that’s a bit daunting!!
This is a small Passport America park ($18 on the pass) with pull-throughs and full hookups, including wi-fi that actually works! I’m sure it helps that I’m right in front of the office. It is on the I-20 service drive so there’s a lot of highway noise but it will probably die down by bedtime. Heck, it can’t be any worse than last night’s loooooong train whistles! There’s a fence about 50′ away with this encouraging sign:
I was worried about arriving here after dark so it was another day of dried apples & Fritos for lunch on the go. I may never want to see another Frito after this trip! I try to think of the money I’m saving on lunches. If all goes well, tomorrow I get out of Texas and enter New Mexico!!
