We decided to leave for Midland from Abilene yesterday late afternoon and arrived one hour later than planned due to some wrong directions from my GPS! We got to see some parts of Midland that we never in a million years would have seen! The fact it was dark didn’t help either. Oh well, part of the fun, huh.
Our Eagle has performed flawlessly so far, and we are very grateful! I filled the coach up yesterday in Abilene at Fina where price was $3.49 per gallon for diesel. I then drove over to WalMart to wait for Becky, walked the dogs and filed the fuel receipt. I noticed that they charged $3.19 per gallon, which was the price of gas. Not sure how it happened, but felt blessed at the lower price.
Midland RV Park is located off I-20 down a dusty road. Not sure if we’ll ever come back here. I’ll have a better idea on the layout when the sun comes up. The site we are in is almost a double wide spot, which is nice.
We will depart for El Paso after a short visit to some of Becky relatives. She lived here back in the 70’s and knows the area pretty well. Google maps says it’s only 301 miles to El Paso from here. Our second stop and we are still in Texas! You know the old saying. “The best view of Texas is in the rear view mirror” because it takes so long to get through it.
