Left Wharton about 8:00am and got to Casa Blanca State Park about 1:30. covering 254 miles.  The temperature for the first few miles was a little cool and we ran into light rain shortly after leaving Wharton.
Nothing much happened on our trip down highway 59 and I filled up with fuel about 50 miles from Laredo. Doing so won't require me to stop at a Pemex early in the day for fuel. With a full tank I can make it to Matehula about 300 miles from the border where we'll spend the night at Las Palmas Motel/RV park.

The pups must have smelled the lake when we drove into Casa Blanca park and as soon as we had set up the motor home they practically dragged us to the lake shore where they enjoyed themselves getting themselves and both of us wet.

We're going to try to get out of here somewhere around 7:30 in the morning as the Mexican Immigration Office doesn't open until 8:00am. If we can do this, hopefully we can be past one of the favorite stretches of highway that the Mexican Transit Police patrol.  The speed limit is 80 KM per hour but the stretch of highway has numerous trucking companies and the speed limit drops to 60 KM for a short stretch on either side of the trucking companies entrances. The Transit Police just sit in a trucking company entrance and wait for people to fly by.
