First Day on the Road

I left Sun City West this morning at 8:30AM and except for gas stops drove 450 miles to Albuequerque, NM. It was an adventure. Very different pulling Ms. Capri. Lots of down shifting to get through the mountains...averaged about 60mph. We won't even discuss gas mileage. The good news was gas prices under $4.00 once I got into NM. Nice break.

I stopped at the truck scales and had the trailer weighed. According to my owner's manual, I can tow up to 3500 pounds. Ms. Capri weighed in at 3200. Whew!

Tonight I am staying at the Enchanted Trails RV Park. Located next door to Camping World. Plan to shop for a light weight table tomorrow and get in a swim. I will stay here 2 nights and then on to Amarillo, TX.

I am heading for my bed....450 miles is a long day. Don't plan on any more like that.
Sweet Dreams.

I am so happy to follow along on your adventures. Have you decorated Capri as cute as you did Cassie?
