Feb 2, 2019 - Ozona, Texas

We left the Rest Area really early this morning. It was so foggy we could hardly see at first, it finally burned off. We drove over 400 miles today before stopping for the night in Ozona, Texas. The hardest part of today’s trip was the drive through San Antonio, Texas. It seemed to take us forever to get out of the big city, but all went well. We tried to stay at two different RV Parks in town, both of them were packed full. We ended up at another Rest Area for the night. We used our generator again, it has gotten a great workout on this...

Jan 29, 2016 - Ozona,TX.

The plan was to drive as far as Fort Stockton, it was early afternoon, so we pushed another 100 miles. We made a stop at a rest area for lunch and a break. Three more RV's from Oregon stopped as well and we all had lunch together and shared our travels. They were on their way to San Antonio to do the River Walk and enjoy a warmer climate. This was a just another overnight stop, and we decided to get a campground with electric hookup so we could have heat. We found a motel (Friendly Inn) with full hookups for cheap. It worked out well,...

Mar 31, 2014 - Eastbound on I-10

Heading east on I-10 as we are leaving behind the mountains and huge vistas of the southwest, and I will miss them. We stopped at Benson, AZ at a Coast to Coast park for a few days so we could revisit a few places we have enjoyed in the past. We went to Chiricahua National Monument near Wilcos,AZ for the day. Several years ago, My brother, Steve, suggested we go there as it is one of his favorite hiking places. It is such a unique area with geological formations that are very unique. You can drive to Massai Point and stay in your car to...

Apr 24, 2013 - Ozona, TX

Wed, 24 Apr: And how the wind did howl! We were able to extend the starboard slide around sunset but the slide topper (canvas that keeps rain and debris from the top of the slide) had become tangled by the wind and was flapping. Neither of us slept very well. First light we got out the ladder and Bob climbed up and untangled the slide topper. He did a good job and we were able to safely retract the slide for travel with no problem. But it wasn't the most enjoyable task as the winds continued, albeit somewhat abated, and it was in the low...

2013 Travels

Feb 27, 2012 - Ozona, Texas

As we drove west from Austin we drove into more hilly countryside. We got into farms and ranches once we left the populated area. Fenced fields had cattle, buffalo and goats, the most common goats were white with brown heads. Fredericksburg is well know for peaches and wine. The guide book said that Caverns of Sonora are the most beautiful in the world, I had never been in caves anywhere so was quit excited to see these. We went on a guided two hour tour, through the main part of the cave about two miles long. This cave is a living cave...

Dec 5, 2010 - Chihuahuan Desert

Today we drove all day through the Chihuahuan Desert. The high temperature got up to 14 (57F) degrees late in the afternoon but was only 7 (44.5)for most of the day but it felt a whole lot colder. I was wearing a sweat shirt and my heavy winter jacket. The Chihuahuan Desert is very different from the Sonoran Desert. The Sonora is rugged and full of cactus and plants of all description. I find it to be a fascinating place. Although there are mountains in the Chihuahua, much of it is flat. The plant life consists mostly of small bushes with...

Find Tom 3

Nov 23, 2010 - Blowin' in the Wind

Las Cruces, NM to Ozona, TX Las Cruces was cool and clear this morning. Don't remember the actual temp, but was below freezing. Well, the goal today was to reach my destination near San Antonio, but alas, that didn't happen. Once I figured out I wouldn't make it, I called ahead and found a campground at Ozona. Not much here, and the campground is fairly dry and dusty, due in part to winds. Today has been a nice weather day, though. Clear skies, so made for a nice sunset. The only downside is that I was travelling away from the sun, so...

Nov 23, 2010 - long driving day

I basically drove from 8:30 AM until 5:30 PM today on I-10 and saw nothing much more than cacti, mesquite trees, and sagebrush. I lost an hour going from Mountain time to Central time, so I was lucky to find the Welcome Center in Ozona at sunset! Dinner was at the "Cafe Next Door" which is next to a gas station on the corner! I am glad that it is warm in the evening - 70s instead of 50s!

May 21, 2010 - Travels with Rig #6

TONI: Well, here we are, on the “BIG TRIP.” We got all shined up and left San Antonio on Friday afternoon. We slipped into a rest stop Friday night, then on to Balmorhea State Park for one night. Greg and Angela didn’t have any time for sight-seeing there, but the park is home to the largest natural spring-fed swimming pool in the country. It’s fairly close to Big Bend State Park, but that’s a trip for another time. Sunday we left for Las Cruces, NM and found a very nice park called Sunny Acres. Nice sized sites with grass and a concrete...

Apr 21, 2010 - Ozona, TX

Where in the world is Ozona? Where did it get it's name? Great stop along the way. We had a picnic at the fairgrounds picnic area, shopped at the local market, and slept well. Breakfast was at the town square. We almost got barbequed! During breakfast, the local police set up a barbeque on the town square at our back door, then invited us for the first burger at 11:00 am. I'm glad I'm studying Spanish.

Feb 21, 2010 - Ozona, Texas

Another one nighter, but what a night! Thunderstorm, windstorm - thought we were going to get blown away. Wind came up so suddenly that it snapped the 19' pole flying Betty's patriotic red-white-blue whirligig; we now have a 9' flag pole! Had a hefty tailwind the next day.
