Welcome to our Adventure...

We packed up the kids, dog and the trailer and headed out for adventure, learning and helping others. During our adventure we will try to update this site as often as possible to keep everyone interested involved in our travels and to keep a journal for ourselves. The plan is to be working, schooling, helping and sharing on the road for a year.
Please feel free to post comments and questions! Thanks for following!

Amarillo By Evenin'

It was an absolutely beautiful day for a drive. It was very warm and clear with minimal winds. The drive was a little boring...instructions from gps were to get on I-40 and stay on it for 257 miles or some such thing. The scenery for the first half was downright boring.

We stopped at a rest area about half way and ate lunch and stretched our legs.

Then we had to find a gas location. We like to find Pilots or Flying J because they are usually a little more big rig friendly than just finding a random stop that we may or may not be able to get into and out of easily. We found a nice one about 20 minutes down the road from the lunch stop location and we decided that ice cold drinks sounded really good. It was 91 degrees outside! Brighton, Brynna and I went in to get the fountain drinks. They had a very nice fountain station with a good variety of flavors. The whole operation didn't go as quickly as we would have liked since there was a line to check out too, but boy, did those drinks taste delicious and refreshing. There is always that side effect of drinking soda though which is not convenient when you are on a road trip and at least a couple people wanted to stop for a potty break before we reached our destination, but we were able to get them to stretch a little and make it all the way.

We finally pulled into our RV resort tonight about 6. Turns out we crossed back into the Central Time Zone so we lost an hour in our day this time. The office closed at 6 so we just found out our site and will settle up with them tomorrow morning.

Tonight, even though it was a vacation day for Brock, he had to work on his HTG reports since they were due and it took him a little longer than he thought, but he got them all posted and now he can really take a day off tomorrow. We are looking forward to checking out what there is to see in Amarillo.
