Monday, July 23Today we got up a little later than we should have to get on the road by 10AM, like we had planned. Oh well, we have to be out by 11. So we started with the chores of putting away stuff, strapping down furniture, and general cleaning, which we do each time we move. I also took our Eileen picture.

In a minute, he came walking up from the direction of the office. Immediately he said, "You know we can't go on a trip without adventure!" I said, "OH NO, now what?" Tony had discovered that the inner dual tire on the truck was low and had a nail in it, so he now had to go and find a tire shop to get it taken care of. He had gone to the office to ask for advice. While he went to get the tire looked after, I finished up the inside and getting ready.
We finally pulled out about 11:30, on our way back home.

We decided to stop at Buc-ee's again, to give it the real look-see and get something to eat. Mainly because we were starving -- we knew we could "fit" in their parking lot, and it wouldn't take long to get a meal. I also finally ate some Dippin' Dots!! For about 2 months, there has been a billboard near Terrell advertising: Dippin' Dots - Buc-ee's - New Braunfels ...so of course, now you know, advertising works!!

The trip was fairly easy again, as we took the 130 Toll Road around Austin. As we drew near the DFW area, we decided to try out the Blue Beacon Truck Wash. They wash Big Rig trucks and trailers. http://www.bluebeacon.com/ We had heard good things about them on the Heartland Forum, so we decided to see if it was a good idea if we need the Mammoth washed in the future. She was still a little buggy and dirty from her trip to Wyoming, plus the bugs from this trip. WOW, we were amazed! It took them about 15 minutes to clean her and the truck, and apply Rain-X finish rinse. MUCH BETTER! The truck even looks RED-ER!
We got home and really looked her over, and the wash isn't perfect as a hand-wash would be, but much quicker and much better than before. We will definitely consider this in the future!

We arrived home about 7PM and got unloaded. Another good RV trip. Can't wait to go again!
P.S. Here's the billboard:
