Yeah, another KOA. I did not take pictures.

Some fuel usage numbers:

We went 187.1 miles
We used 12.615 gallons
getting 14.8 mpg

2nd fuel stop, Gila Bend, AZ
(I had the cruise control set to 60 mph.)
We went 188.4 miles
We used 15.101 gallons
getting 12.5 mpg

3rd fuel stop, Benson, AZ
(I put the cruise control back to 55 mph. The 'Zonies got past it)
We went 114.1 miles
We used 8.290 gallons
getting 13.8 mpg

4th fuel stop, Las Cruces, NM
(I kept the cruise control at 55 mph. Hey, we're on Vacation. No hurries)

We changed our plan a little bit. We got a late start leaving Van Horn. I keep forgetting to factor in crossing time zones! And yesterday we crossed 2 time zones in 1 day!

Tonight we are in Abilene, Texas.

THUNDERSTORM!
All of the locals are probably wondering about the Californians who get the lawn chairs out to watch it rain. Better than fireworks at the 4th-of-July!

Some pictures from yesterday, before the rain.

When you get home today, your neighbor will be gone. As crowded as it was getting, It might even be a big BIG sticky.

It was a really, really nice not-a-rally. I had the best neighbors ever. Rain and T'storms every night, but the days were nice. Even Rusty (my dog - who is the king of all thunder weenies) had a great time. During last night's T'storms, except for a few pantings and a couple of worrisome looks, he just laid there. What a miracle!

Enjoy the rest of your trip, neighbors.

A big sticky, 2 monster trucks, and a boat... ... all in one campsite.

I had a wonderful time, Visiting with SUZ, and Rusty the Wonderdog! Then seeing my Dad on Father's Day.

What do you get after a week of Thunderstorms?

Sitting in backed up traffic on I-35W South near Denton Texas while waiting for the flash flood across the roadway to subside this morning.

Once past that, we made good time. We are spending the night in Odessa, TX.
