Safely arrived in Abiline. No big hiccups. As usual, the first time packing everything after three months of sitting takes longer than expected. Then when we finally stopped, there was some extra adjustment as we remembered how the slide outs where supposed to go.
Something different this time though. I don't have that excited buzz about this trip yet. We will be seeing my sister tomorrow though and that will help. Seeing Mom again after such a long time will be awesome too. OK, now I'm getting excited.
There is another Open Range here in the park. I stopped and talked to the very friendly Frank who owned it. He bought it new in 2008 though it is a 2009 model. He is very happy with it. I have nothing but good things to say about them as well. He had a blowout today on the passenger side rear most wheel. He says he wouldn't even have known if someone driving along side hadn't told him. That is reassuring.
I am trying to remember to post some pictures of how I made my heated hose for anyone that is interested in that sort of thing.
A few notes about Abiline. The Denny's off I-20 on the East side is awful. Worst restaurant I have been to in years. That's saying something. Got a drink spilled on me, every order was wrong, bathroom was filthy. Just don't go. Also, the RV park...apparently there are only two. This one is 40 feet from I-20. Yup. I can almost tell you what brand of car just drove by, except so many are driving by together. Talk about noisy. Oh well. Adventure equals discomfort.
