We liked these words

Today was travel day so we were up by 6:30 AM. The sky was overcast and it appeared that it could begin raining at any time.

We had our morning coffee and then began getting things ready to go. Marilyn normally takes care of the inside and I do the outside and then we cross check each other's work. We were ready to roll by 8:35 AM but it was difficult to say goodbye to Gina, Stephan and Wagner. We have all grown close to each other in a short time. Hugs and a few tears out of the way, we rolled out of the Admiralty RV Resort at 8:50 AM, and didn't stop until we reached Mitchells RV Resort at Perrin, TX, right at 2:00 PM. The trip planner said 5 hours and 13 minutes and our actual time was 5 hours and 10 minutes. Not bad!

This is a very nice, quiet RV resort out in the country just east of Perrin, TX on FM2210. They have 2 swimming pools, a nine hole par 3 golf course with real greens. Three of the par 3 holes are over 200 yards, one is 194 yards and another is 185 yards. Not your normal pitch and putt course. :)

After getting the RV set up we drove 10 miles to find fuel and food. Diesel was $2.94 per gallon, but there was a great little bar-b-cue place across the road, called Hashknife on the Chisholm. Jim McLennan, Jr owns it and he is known for his ribs. We ordered a slab of ribs with sides of beans and potato salad. They told us they were also known for their cole slaw and they gave us a small dish of that as well. The ribs were "fallin' off the bone" good, the potato salad was ok, the beans were not very good (No seasoning, no onions, nothing but beans), but the small cole slaw they gave us was great. I wish we had ordered just ribs and cole slaw. His business card says "Ribs to die for". I'm not sure I would go that far but they are definitly worth stopping for if you are anywhere close and hungry.

Now, back to the RV park.. They have a lot of activities such as bluegrass music festivals, entertainers such as Elvis impersonators, and country music bands, etc.

It is an extremely clean and neat park with level pull through sites, 20/30/50 amp service and sites large enough for any size rig. Doris and Kevin own and operate the place and they have a web site. Look them up at www.mitchellresortandrvpark.com

Marilyn and I brought our ribs back to the RV and had a nice lunch/dinner with a cold beer. Then we walked around taking pictures so that we could share with you, our loyal readers.

Tomorrow, we will see how far we get. No agenda, no place we have to be, just keep the nose pointed into the wind toward Wichita, KS, and let 'er run!

Can't wait to see what is around the bend.
