We have decided to take three days to get to Austin. Our plan is to stay the first night at Sunland Race Track and Casino, near El Pass. They have RV sites with water and electric with a nearby dump station. All we will use is the electric. For the sake of speed and convience the second night we will stay at either a truck stop or rest area in it near Junction, TX.

I will report on how it goes.

South Llano River State Park is not far off he Interstate in Junction. Beautiful park.

Hi everyone,

Our trip went very well. The first night we stayed at the Sunland Park Casino & Ractrack just outside of El Paso, TX. Great place for a stop over. They had 8 RV sites with water and electric for $15 or you could dry camp for free. We opted to go for the electric.

The second night we had a awesome situation. We got a really early start and ended up driving farther than we expected. We felt we could get to Fredericksburg, TX, 506 miles. We are members of Harvest Hosts and there happen to be a winery there. Called and they said they had room and we could fit, 45 foot monster here.

We got there after they closed and when we were about to turn into the winery the road looked way to narrow and had fences that looked to close to navigate. We decided to head to the center of town and figure out another place to stay. We pulled off to the side of the road in the center of town. Everything was closed so it did not matter that we were taking up a bunch of parking spots. We pulled out the gps and found a few possibilities, a Walmart, a KOA.

Just as we were deciding to head to the Walmart and elderly gentleman knocks on our front door. FYI, we are from Vermont, we open the door and he says "hi I am from New Hampshire and also an Rver, you look like your are lost and looking for a place to stay". We said that is correct. He then graciously offered for us to stay in his driveway that is 100 ft long with full rv hookups. I asked how much he would charge for the night and he said "I would not charge you anything, would just love to have you stay over".

Well, this RV lifestyle is filled with amazing people. You never know if he is a really nice guy or some king of wacko so we decided to drive over to his house and if we felt uncomfortable we would just continue on our way. As it turned out he lives in a beautiful subdivision in a beautiful large house. His wife was waiting in the driveway to greet us. We pulled in and spent the evening talking and enjoying each others company.

What a fun evening and now we have new friends in a place we will certainly come back to.

Stuart

Very nice Stuart. I hope you were able to enjoy our nice weather we have had recently. We will be passing through Fredricksburg on Tue, headed the opposite direction, stopping in Ft Stockton and Benson, on the way to Parker, AZ

In Benson we stayed at the Escapees park. Nice place. They had a great deal for first timers staying there, $50 plus electric for the week.

We will probably miss LHC on this trip. We are headed for Zion NP, after the race. Probable taking 95 on the CA side of the river.

We would like to spend some time in that area. So far, it's only been an overnight stop for us at Cochise Terrace. It has been a very nice park.
