Heading Back to Texas

When the rally was over on Friday morning, Patsy and I hooked up the car, and headed back to Texas.  Our DIL is scheduled for major surgery on Wednesday, and we had volunteered to keep our grandkids during the ordeal.

On the last night of the rally, we visited Nick and Terry in their Bus.  They started with a used bus and gutted it, and with Miss Terry doing most of the work, they converted it into their ‘home on wheels’.  You can read more about it here.  Here are an outside and inside picture of the bus.

We spent most of the day driving, but we did stop in Tucson, AZ to visit a Camping World Store, where we purchased a folding aluminum table for the Bus, and to shop one last time at a Trader Joe’s to get some specialty food items. 

Here are some pictures of the scenery on the way out of Arizona and through New Mexico.

We drove until late Friday night and made it to the Flying J at Anthony, TX (close to El Paso) by 7:00pm.  After filling with fuel, we spent the night at the Texas Welcome Center at the Texas border.
