Trippin'

Okay - well, finally, I'm able to get an internet signal and post a little something here!

This one's going to be short as we're ready to leave another campsite, but here's things in a nut shell:

We left Saturday the 17th and just barely made it into Roswell, NM (yes, that Roswell!) around 11:00p.m. before completely 'breaking down' in the RV at the first gas station in town.  Eventually, after many conversations with Geico and the towing company, we got towed into an RV spot at the Town and Country RV Park and finally 'hit the hay' at about 1:45a.m.!!  On another post we'll tell you all about our trip down main street with the Aliens, how great the people of Roswell really are and all the funny things that happened!

By Wednesday the 21st, the RV was repaired and we were on our way to Amarillo, TX. Other than lots of wind and a bunch of awful smells, there's not much to talk about regarding Amarillo, and the next day, yesterday (Thursday the 22nd) we pulled out and drove to Oklahoma City - which is where I sit now as I'm typing to you.

We're headed out today to Devil's Canyon State Park in Arkansas and we'll let you know how that goes once we get another signal and get settled in with family after the weekend!

Here's to another day of fun filled adventures, beautiful sites to see and here's hoping the wind dies down!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and fuel pumps, baby!!
Cheers,
~Shel~

Travel Trip #1 = In Oklahoma, when it says speed limit 70,....better to obey that. A very nice tropper let us know even 72 was way too fast for his state!  :)
