Day 2 November 20

We pulled into Casa Blanca State Park in Laredo about noon after driving about 160 miles. Not much sleep last night as the first day/night on the road your body has to get used to the change. The pups were also up and down all night aware of all the new noises they hear in the Walmart parking lot.

I thought there might be a problem with the refrigerator as there could be no noise heard from the propane coming on when switched from electric to gas but it seems to be keeping things cold so not going to worry about it now.

The wind wasn't blowing as strong today but still blowing enough so that the ceiling vent in the bedroom came off its tract and is danger of blowing off completely. When we get home we'll have to get a new vent. Hopefully it will stay together until we find someone with a ladder so that I can get on the roof and duct tape it down.

It's still quite warm but we have a nice camp spot that backs up to the lake at Casa Blanca State Park. Leo and Hayley couldn't wait to get in the water and have a swim. It's been a while since they've been swiming and Hayley didn't want to come out of the water when called.

We're scheduled to meet up with our "travel buddy" David tomorrow. He left the Denver area several days ago and he and his dog are driving to Morelia where he and his wife have a home. The plans are to cross the border early on Tueday morning.
