Sunday, March 19, 2017, Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, TX, 102.5 Miles, 6,197.6 Miles For the Trip

Another relatively short drive, mostly on US 60 and a little on I 40. As you cross into Texas, there are a bunch of cattle fattening farms, although I'm not sure whether they are considered farms or ranches, or businesses. Thousands of cattle in pens standing around waiting for the end.

I crossed into central time, so I lost another hour. I'm doing the page at 6:00, and it still seems like the middle of the afternoon. I'm at the Oasis RV Resort, "Amarillo's Newest, Largest & Finest". It definitely meets the description, although it isn't exactly my cup of tea. I'm in site 39, a full hookup site for $27.00. A level concrete pad, but no picnic table and not a tree in sight. They have individual bathrooms with showers that are very clean. They also have very fast, free WiFi. I will be moving on to Palo Duro Canyon State Park tomorrow.

Site 39


It is very windy today. Because of a tailwind, I was getting 18 MPG on the early part of the trip, but the average for the day was down to 14.7 MPG. After setting up I put the awning out a couple of feet to get a piece of shade for both me & the refrigerator wall. The current temperature is 91°F, so I'm running the air conditioner again.

When I get around to feeling hungry, dinner will be left over shrimp Alfredo.

Until Tomorrow -
