Happy 2017

Kathi and I helped 2017 roll in lying in bed watching the celebration at Times Square in New York City. That was plenty of celebration for us.

We left the Winstar RV Park in Thackerville, OK about one pm and moved south to avoid some freezing weather coming to Oklahoma in a few days. We enjoyed our stay at the Winstar World Casino, but it is obviously too early to move this far north and still avoid the freezing weather. Our goal is to get to Sunset, UT and have some RV work done. We will try again, probably in February.

We drove south on I-35 without a home scheduled for the evening. We are moving back to Cedar Breaks Park on Lake Georgetown today, but I chose not to drive the 250 miles from Thackerville. Kathi spotted the I-35 RV Park & Resort in the unincorporated community of Elm Mott, TX, about 10 miles north of Waco.

This RV park is being remodeled. They have just finished putting in new asphalt roads and the sites will be covered with gravel soon. Rates are reasonable and the park host is very friendly and accommodating. Rates are comparable to other RV parks in the area. They have about 200 sites available. We chose a pull-thru site, so we would not have to unhook our Jeep for a one-night stay.

Kathi is making black-eyed peas and cabbage, which she does every New Year’s Day for good luck in the coming year. It must work, because we mostly have good luck every year. Of course, luck and how you feel about it and how you feel about how well you are doing depends on your own attitude. I choose a positive attitude whenever I can.

We awoke this morning to a little sunshine coming in our windshield and while we were having coffee and reading the news, the sun disappeared. Now we are experiencing drizzling rain and overcast skies. It will make slow driving on the way to Lake Georgetown, but at least we only have about 90 miles to go and cannot check in at the lake until after 2 pm. As I was writing, the rain stopped and the sun came back out. Maybe we are really having intermittent sunshine. Where is my weatherman?

I went out to disconnect the utilities this morning and saw a rainbow to the north. Rainbows are always a cause for joy at our motorhome. More signs of good things to come this year.

A beautiful sight to see anytime.
I hope 2017 is happy and prosperous for all my friends and travel blog readers.
