New Mexico & Texas
Life in our RV Trek Eastward Trek Toward Home Home at Last



We visited with my Aunt Donna and cousin Cindy and her daughter Suzanne.  We missed my cousin Bob by 8 hours who was off doing important Air Force stuff out of town.    We had a wonderful visit catching up and reminiscing over old times.  Next time we'll have to make it longer!

Then we flew through New Mexico, into Texas and into Oklahoma.  Microsoft again was our guide as we went on an unplanned sight seeing through Elk City.  Our RV park was in the opposite side of town from our knowledgeable guide! So it was 9:30 PM before we hit the park.  We are setting new records!  Now back into Texas to Southlake   where Mom's high school buddy Anne Marie lives.

6/26/99 We had a great visit with the Fosters.  Before we got there we stopped at the Balor Medical Clinic  to get the family tested for strep throat.  It took over three hours to get the results!  Luckily Patrick, William, Madeline, and Colleen were all negative.    Now we have have three of us on antibiotics - Ann, Phil, and Michelle.  Hopefully this is the end of strep in the RV.

On the way to Texas - our first test!  The air conditioner froze, overloaded by that Oklahoma humidity (we think).  Soon water starting pouring into the passenger side.   Then we heard shorting noises and the windshield wipers went on voluntarily.    Luckily Phil was able to take apart the car and fix it!   Score one for the humans!
