Texas 87

What a pleasant surprise we got today! First, we said goodbye to Coleman Park this morning promptly at 11:00 and after a stop at the sani we were on our way. Thanks for the free campground Brownfield! On our way south - to Lamesa and then on to Big Spring. Big Spring has a Walmart Supercenter so that was our destination to stock up - we were out of almost everything!

The plan was to sleep at Walmart tonight but since we arrived at 1:00 it was pretty early. By the time we shopped and had lunch it was just after 3:00 so we decided to continue on.

The new plan was to push all the way to Brady - thinking that it would be better to go through San Angelo during the early evening and thus missing rush hour.

Throw that plan out the window - as we were getting closer to San Angelo we saw a sign for a rest area (nothing new of course) but wait - look - a sign for wifi and it sure looks like a nice rest area - let's go take a look.

Our home for the night.

We see A LOT of stars in Texas.

Well, we pulled in and thought - lets stay here! A very nice and CLEAN rest area - and wifi!

Thanks Texas  Department of Transportation!

Front of the Restroom & Information Building - love the golden stone they used.

The first thing we did was go for a walk around.

Today's Interesting Link: I would be remiss if I didn't pass on TexTreks - the provider of our internet at the rest area. Check out the site for lots of great info on Texas - boy do we LOVE Texas - really!
