Tried to go back to sleep but unsuccessful, so up and about by 6. Loaded everything – MC included – by 7:30. All hooked up and ready to roll by 8:10. Goodbyes and pictures took a couple minutes so pulled out of the driveway of 8607 at 08:20 Friday June 8th 2012 – 4 days later than planned.
By the time I had stopped by the bank, got fruit and other groceries, topped off with gas it was 10:35 when I hit I10 westbound.
I set the cruise on the speedometer at 62 – GPS said it was 68. This 10% speedo error is new as it was not there when I brought the truck back from Vegas. I wonder if the slightly oversize rear tires I put on contribute? Maybe it’s a calibration thing with the PU’s computer.
Filled with gas at Fort Stockton – only 13.25 MPG @ 64-65 MPH on the GPS.
Now typing this settled in for the night at Davis Mountains State Park. Overcast with a wonderfully cool breeze. Just ate some beef and rice. Caravan plugged in to the electricity and the AC has cooled the interior so it should be cool enough to need a light blanket tonight.
Tonight would be really pleasant – if it wasn’t cloudy so I could see the Milky Way and if the damn midges and flies weren’t so overbearing. The flies being a great reason to want a different campsite that’s not so plagued with them.
Davis Mountains State Park - Dry and desolate huh?
