It's early in the morning. Katie is still sleeping and I just can't lay in bed anymore. The RV has cooled down to about 50 degrees inside. Coffee gets brewed and I take a seat in front of the windshield. This will be the last desert sunrise I may ever see, and I'm sharing it with Kitty.
More miles need to be slammed through in order to reach our final destination of Houston. We have already traveled this route and neither of us really feel the need to stop anywhere again. All of the real interesting stuff is hours out of the way anyhow. Out the front window is a constant repeat of desert scrub and rolling hills. The landscape is starting to change and Texas is rolling into view. Our first real taste of Texas once again was the bustling city traffic of El Paso. Shortly after leaving the city we get stopped at a border patrol station. Every single car heading East or West on Interstate 10 outside of El Paso needs to stop and be checked for illegal immigrants.
Six hours of driving has finally come to an end. We had originally planned on grabbing an RV park for the night but opted for some free Wal-Mart boondocking instead. With out spot secured we still had a bunch of distance to walk. Sigh.... let's go rack up a couple of miles.
Gaze upon our deluxe accommodations for the night. A total of 12 RV's, and 3 vans settle into the back of a small Wal-Mart parking lot for the night. Oh yes, life on the road.
