I have been camp hosting here in Tyler, TX since 7/8/2011. Since I got here it has been like camping in the Mohave Desert. There has been only one day since I got here that the temperature has been below 100 degrees and that day it hit 98. Another interesting fact was that for 22 days the temperature was over 105. Seems like Arizona only with humidity which makes it even worse.
I am planning on heading Northwest where I will stay at Lake Arrowhead State Park for a few days and then on to Palo Dura State Park for another few days. Both these destinations are in Texas and both are still predicted to be quite hot. From there I am headed into the mountains of northern New Mexico where I am hoping temperatures will cool off.
There has not been too much to blog about during my time here. I start my day by working for a couple of hours early in the morning before it gets too hot. Then it is inside for the remainder of the day. I have taken a lot of time re-organizing my rig. I have gone through every cabinet including outside storage. Anything I didn’t use for the last year is going to the Good Will. I gave away some CD’s to some of the people in the park and am getting rid of many of the books I have read. It is so nice to have a Kindle where all my books are stored. Right now I am finishing up on my outside storage, which should be completed before I depart.
I am looking forward to getting back on the road. I have HITCH ITCH something fierce and can’t wait. Also looking forward to more frequent blogs showing pics of the beautiful places I visit. Thanks everyone for being so patient during this time.
I am with mom. Touch and go. God only knows. Take care.
I can’t wait for two things…1 your going to be in cooler area soon and 2 that you’ll be blogging more – we sure miss you. Millie I am praying for your Mum and you. hugs to you three (Jim/Millie and Mum)
Jim, don’t know if you are aware but there is absolutely no cell service in Palo Dura Canyon.
