Texas RV Park - Big Spring Texas - on the road

Thursday, November 8, 2012

The Original Ranch, Lakewood, New Mexico 42 degrees and mostly sunny.

Buster is on the road just before ten today headed southeast to Austin. We left our site just after nine but putting air in the tires and paying the electric and getting hug’s and greeting’s from members took time.

Buster's left front tire
One hundred twenty-six miles later Buster came up lame on the left front. The tire blew out just west of Andrews, Texas traveling east on state road 176. There is some damage to the inside wheel well area and the left fuel filler took some of the tire coming off. The compartment door behind the tire is bent also. I drove Silver Sally on into Andrews and found a tire shop to get Buster some road service. It is warm here about 88 degrees and sunny.

Texas RV Park Big Spring Texas, about 80 degrees and sunny. Buster arrived just before dark finding a full park or "no sites available". Inquiring about what is available in the area, nothing as the oil field workers are taking up the sites in most RV parks. I was able to talk them into letting Buster park there, then I was offered a fifteen amp electric so it all worked out. We did not need water as Buster left the ranch with a full water tank (one hundred gallons). Bonnie and I went into Big Spring for dinner, not dirtying the kitchen tonight. Lower elevation (2,500 feet) eight hundred feet lower than at the ranch in Lakewood, NM.

New tire
One hundred and ninety-five miles today for Buster mostly on state road 176 in New Mexico and Texas.
