I Always Wanted to Spend the Night in Paris....

Paris, Texas that is...our first night on the road driving south in our new rig was spent here in the Wal-Mart parking lot, 300 miles south of Chanute, Kansas.  We were serenaded by grackles during the evening...a sound we haven't heard in a while.

Even our red roads in Texas are better than most interstates in other states!!!  Tulsa, Ok....forget it, chuck hole city.  We were glad to be on our good Texas roads.

Red-tailed Hawks have kept us entertained while driving.  I don't remember seeing so many before.  Their numbers are not dwindling.  Every overpass has its own group of pigeons.

The only fall colored trees here are Chinese Tallow, a non-native problem tree.  We left all the beautiful maples up north.

Once we hit highway 77, we felt we were home.  We drove from Paris, Texas to Victoria, Texas where we stayed in the Wal-Mart parking lot along with 9 other rigs.  This is where we have our first WHATABURGER!!!!  YEAH.  It was delicious!!!

Now we start seeing Caracaras, Harris' Hawks and other South Texas specialities....We are Home at Santa Ana.

I will try to post pictures of our rig tomorrow as some of you are asking to see inside.  We are still trying to get moved in and settled.


  1. I'm looking forward to pictures!
    It seems like a lifetime ago since we were at Santa Ana. It's been a busy summer.
    If you get a chance, could you see if all those trees and bushes we planted last year made it though the summer?
