Amarillo, Texas

As I do every morning I checked the weather for our area. I saw heavy rain to the west of Tucumcari and when 0800 rolled around I woke Jim and apprised him of the forecast. He got up and we both got busy packing up so we could leave ahead of the rain. We were on the road before 0900! We skipped breakfast and Jim even skipped his coffee!

We had overcast skies and a few sprinkles but we stayed ahead of the rain. Matter of fact we out ran it! LOL We crossed into Texas and the central time zone around 0930/1030. The drive was uneventful and we made one stop for stretching and to get Jim's sunglasses. We arrived at Oasis RV resort outside of Amarillo around noon. Within an hour we were all set up with the exception of no internet. For some reason our dish won't pick up the internet. The same thing happened at our last stop. We have TV but Hughes isn't connecting. Jim will head up onto the roof tomorrow to see if all the connections are ok.

Meanwhile we're using the free wifi here at the resort. This evening it's very, very slow and it comes and goes.

Boo loves it here! We've taken him out several times and he runs and runs! Mostly asphalt and cement here! He's a city dog for sure.

We had beans and rice for dinner, quite tasty if I do say so myself! We had a pastel sunset and now that the sun has gone down it's getting cooler.

We've spent most of the evening in front of the TV or our computers.
