San Antonio To Fort Stockton

We finally got away! We left at about 9:30 and headed up I-10 towards Fort Stockton. Google Maps said it would be a four and a half hour drive but we always take longer than their estimate. I guessed six or six and a half and that is what it took. We had a half hour stop for brunch at a Cracker Barrel along the way and got here at about five.

As we were driving into town I glanced at the indoor/outdoor thermometer and it read 104F! We found the Passport America park we stayed at last year and checked in. $10 per night plus $2 if you run the A/C. It is not much of a park, just a dusty parking lot with hookups really, but our space is a pull through and it is quiet here.

Norma can smell propane in the RV when we are stopped so we will stop at a little RV repair place we passed in town in the morning. We had the same problem last year and Camping World did a repair on a pipe under the rig. It involved re-flaring a line and the tech said at the time that it might not hold and if id didn't, it would involve running a new line. We might be slow getting away tomorrow.


  1. Been there! Isn't that the place where the police fine you for staying in the Walmart?

    1. I had not heard that Chris. It is too bloody hot to boondock anyway! 104 when we parked and still 86 at 8:30 PM.

  2. Hmmm - looks like you've changed your route Croft. Probably a good idea - a bit cold in these parts!

  3. Don't mess with propane! Good to have that fixed pronto!
    Safe travels to you!

  4. Get that propane fixed right away don't want no problems.
    Keep cool too.

  5. That is hot and it makes sense to be in an RV park with electrics to cool you down.

    Good luck with the propane fix.
