Dash cam typically loops and uses an SD card. Mine does.

Okay! I'm alright. I'm not going to be near you, but now that your luck is changing it may not be so bad.

I don't know how long you will be in Amarillo, but the "Grand Canyon of Texas" is 30 miles from there and is called "Palo Duro Canyon." If you can arrange to stay a couple nights try to take in the outdoor play that they have in the canyon. It is very well done and worth the extra pennies.

On you way to Amarillo, about 40 miles east you will see a big cross. It is located in Groom, TX. Plenty of parking for the MH/RV. It is worth the stop and walk around for about 1 hour to see the Stations of the Cross sculptures.

If you don't have a place picked out to stay in Amarillo, try Oasis RV. I'm not sure if they are offering the same prices, but at one time it was $20 a night and if you stayed 3 nights the 3rd night was free.

Happy trails.

Edited: p.s., Palo Dury has camping, but I believe it is all boondocking.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Loop recording. Based on the size of the memory card you select: any where from one to 32 Gigs, it still simply records over the earliest section.
I won't leave home without it. Wide angle (140 degrees if memory serves me) shows everything from just a few inches in. from from side to side.
Mine was less than $200, search "dash cam" on e-bay. No duty on purchase, they are shipped from Hong Kong or mainland China. Some can be found and shipped from within the USA but as you would expect, they are more expensive.

Check out the website www.thevideocopilot.com for some reasonably priced good cameras. I swap from MH to toad whichever is moving. I won't go without one since I had an issue with a driver turning in front of my brand new vehicle with 928 miles on it. Insurance Co (not mine anymore!) decided not to fight because no one stopped to say they saw it happen and I "could" have run a red light. Cost me a $1,000 deductible and I was furious. Got my camera within a week.

Kinda hard to believe that you wouldn't have had some laundry to do.

On my Dash Cam I record the GPS Speed, Google Maps Location and time along with the G-Force in three axes as well as the cockpit conversations Wife and I just call out the license plate number and that is it. Records in three minute segments. I transfer to CD and turn in to the local Sheriff. Makes a lot of money for the county and when on the road covers my A"" when people get stupid around the coach. The camera came from E-Spy mall.
