« One State Closer To The Rally - (Las Cruces, NM) | Main | Well, That Was Different - (Ozona, TX) »

Dan laughed when I put the gardening kneeling pads in with the boards he places under the motorhome jacks. But, those pads are the first thing he grabbed when he opens the door to get the blocks of wood. :) We'll probably get to Kerrville about the same time, as we had a new air filter overnighted to a Freightliner shop in Amarillo, so will not be leaving Amarillo until about noon today. We knew it would need to be changed soon, but thought it could wait until we got to Kerrville. Not so. And of course, none of the three Freightliner shops had the one we needed. Just had a call from the shop and it has arrived. And Dan was happy with how easy it was to get it off, so should be easy to replace. :) See you soon. Safe traveling.

You're doing the same hops we normally do from AZ to Texas Hill Country: Sunny Acres to Balmorhea - either the PA park or the state park (with it's mind-blowing naturally heated pool). Our next stop is usually South Llano River State Park in Junction, TX... wonder if you'll be there tonight?

Long driving days, but not too bad now that we know some beautiful spots (Davis Mountain State Park in Ft. Davis is a lovely park, too).

Glad your mechanical problems are solved. Safe travels!

Welcome to the knee-pad crowd!

Glad you two are well on your way, and solved all your brake problems! Nice little compressor. Do you know if will it run power tools? Or does one need a bigger reserve tank for that purpose?

Yes, Karen, it will power some air tools. I have one just like it. It is easy for me to carry, that is another reason why I like it. I don't think it would be sufficient to frame up a house with a big nail gun, but I have used an air ratchet, and sander with it. Also I use it for stapling trim. It will power a brad nailer, and palm nailer, but I rarely use them. Happy Trails, Penny, TX

Looks like you are going to make it! Awesome. "I love it when a plan comes together". Enjoy the Rally!
Bruce and I have to move to Las Cruces in November, for he is to play Santa at the Mesilla Valley Mall. We did a drive-thru Sunny Acres about 3 weeks ago. Would love to stay there, but it is a bit 'dear' for a month long stay, and we have to pay electric. Though, it is a pretty park.
