And the Thunder Rolls

It has been disgustingly grey out most of the time I have been here. Thankfully, there have been some nice sunny patches, but it’s mostly been icky and the humidity has been increasing. It looks like we will finally get some rain tonight. I hope it’s not too much or I will have to move to higher ground.

If I didn’t have my solenoid, I would have had to move back into the RV park by now. Between it and the weak sun, I’m holding steady between 30 and 40AH down. So I’m fine, but my batteries sure would like a full charge sooner rather than later…

Mail will determine whether or not I leave on Thursday. I still haven’t figured out where I’m going next. I’ve pretty much decided not to stop in Austin. I’ve been told several times that I need to check it out, but I’m not into the music scene and nothing about the city is calling my name while there are things I want to see in Dallas. But Dallas is even more of a challenging in terms of finding an overnighting spot, much less somewhere that I can stay for several nights at little to no charge. I may just have to bite the bullet and stay at an RV park for a couple of nights.

That said, if I end up staying here later than Thursday and into the weekend, I will consider going to Austin on a day trip. An extended stay here would put me really behind schedule, so then I will probably overnight somewhere before Dallas, stop in Dallas for the afternoon (as long as I can find a place to drop the rig), and then overnight after Dallas.

I can’t believe I absolutely need to be back in Canada in 45 days, but I am aiming for no more than 40. April is going to SPEED by.

  • Don’t miss Dallas. And you cannot see what you want in a couple of hours. If you drive right on past, you will end up kicking yourself.

  • Good to know, thanks. I thought I could stop for three or four hours and see everything. Back to my overnight resources I go. 🙂

  • If you managed to park somewhere early enough, drive downtown, find a place to park and then walk to Deally Plaza by noonish, then you “might” get back to the rig in time to leave the same night. But then you would end up driving at night.. I think we spent two hours in the museum alone. 45 days is a long time. More time than we have and we have further to go.

  • That’s really good to know. I’m going to plan to overnight in Dallas, then. Just need to find a cheap place to do so.

    40 days sounds like a long time, but with the weather being so iffy, it’s going to be just enough.

  • Gina, it was just too funny last night. JUST as I was typing my title, the thunder rolled. I had no choice! 😀
