Monday, July 14, 2014Today we took our time getting up, but not too much time. We packed up and hit the road a little after 10. Thank goodness there was cloud-cover that made the prep not too hot. We were making good time and listening to music. Some interesting things seen along the way:
An ATM building on the shoulder… Apparently, the trailer it was riding had a blowout.
A dunking booth being towed… At first, I thought it was a badly loaded trailer of playground equipment, but once it passed us, I could tell what it was.
A pickup truck going in the opposing lanes went off the road and flipped several times. Here is a link to the story. I called 911 to report it.

We also saw very little rain, before reaching Denton. Apparently, in some areas we drove through, later in the day they saw severe storms with micro-burst winds in excess of 65mph!
We got home about 2:30, and got the trailer backed in on the first try. We hooked up the electric and got the A/C running, so it would be cooler later for unloading items.
We are glad to be home, but also unhappy we had to leave the great weather and fun times we were having in Colorado. I wish it could have been longer.
We now turn our sights onto our next adventure as we get ready to take Mammoth to Solid Rock RV Park at Lake Leon. She will be “home base” for us for a while, as Tony takes his new position in Cisco.
