Jan 1, 2020 - Coleman RV Park (10/26/19)

This park is part of the Brownfield City Park and has several sites for RVs where they can stay free with water and electric. What a find! It was perfect for 1 night. On the drive that day, we were out in the middle of nowhere with very little traffic and not a whole lot to see. I was driving and thought I saw a bicyclist coming toward us on the opposite side of the road. As he got closer I realized it wasn't a bicycle, but in fact it was a unicycle. Yes, a guy riding a unicycle miles from any town! You just never know what you will see...

Nov 15, 2019 - Coleman City RV Park, Brownfield, TX

We left Oliver Lee Memorial SP today headed east back to Tennessee for Thanksgiving holiday. Our route took us via Highway 82 across the Sacramento Mountains and out onto the high plains of southeastern New Mexico and west Texas. We were bound for Brownfield, TX. Using my AllStays program, I found a neat city park in Brownfield that has a small RV park. The full hook up sites are free for five nights. How cool is that. They do have a donation box which we contributed too. We overnighted here, spent some money in town filling up the truck...

Scott Russell who is the Ag Extension Agent in Terry County (southwest of Lubbock) which grows a lot of peanuts.

He told us there are 4 varieties of peanuts grown in the U.S. and only in Texas are all 4 are grown. Texas is also the second largest peanut...

Sep 9, 2008 - Day 105 – “We have driven the Alaska Highway and we have survive it!”

Since "Day 89" we have followed some very interesting weather patterns. Once we arrived somewhere for the night, the temperature would be nice. By the next morning, a major cold front would slide trough! For example, in Jackson Hole-Wyoming, we arrived with a warm 84 degrees and beautiful. An hour later it hailed with rain and 40 mph winds. The next day, it was still raining and we reached a big 45 degrees around 9 a.m., but by 5 p.m. 43. (This was during Labor Day Weekend). So, we have had beautiful days on the road and raining/cold days...

Nov 11, 2007 - Sunday AM in Graham, TX - travel to Brownfield, TX

(Ron Writing) This morning we attended worship service and adult Sunday School at the First United Methodist Church of Graham. We enjoyed a great sermon delivered by Dr. Bob Holloway, a nice time of fellowship & coffee between worship and Sunday School, and a great lesson on "grace" with the "Open Bible Class". It was a wonderful morning. So many friendly folks greeted and visited with us. On the way to church we noticed a sign along the street advertising St. Mary's Catholic Church's annual Pork Fest today. Some of the people we visited...
