Being planful

When I'm getting ready to travel, I'm pretty planful. I spent a portion of this afternoon mapping out possible campgrounds for my first night heading toward Houston. I've chosen one in Van Horn, and one in Fort Stockton, Texas. They are both Passport America parks.

Van Horn is about 226 miles away and Fort Stockton is about 350. Normally, I'd choose the closer park, but all but about five miles of the trip will be on I-10, which usually means easier driving. 350 miles is a long day for me, so I'm keeping my options open.

There are several other rigs heading that direction from here. When I went to the social hour today, I spoke with some of them. They have decided to pull out on Saturday instead of Sunday, as they think the forecast for Sunday has 40 mph winds. Well, I'll have to watch the forecast because you won't find me driving in those kind of winds! Only time will tell if it will be Saturday or Sunday. I'm up for either.

Thanks for stopping by....talk to you later, Judy


  1. We have been at the low Hi campground and have stayed at both the van horn places and the one in Ft Stockton. We much preferred the Fort Stockton one over either Van horn sites.

    Definitely watch the winds as they have really pushed us around on I-10 not to mention the dust!

    Have a safe trip

  2. Planning for a tour or travel is very exciting because you begin to explore and enjoy the great places. best park and fly deals
