Ona Saturday our 299-mile ride found us pulling into Cheyenne Mountain State Park for a two-week stay. Our ride had been great until we hit the Colorado border, from there it was a bumpy ride all the way into Colorado Springs. We had to do some rerouting as our normal route had long delays due to an aviation gathering at the airfield which was causing long delays.
Thursday was our next move day, thankfully Dave was still okay to drive but the 95-mile ride to Trinidad Lake State Park took a lot out of both of us. We had a week planned in one of the few full hookup sites they have. By the time we got set up, we were both done for, over the next week we both fought our viral infection, and we managed a few walks around our loop but that’s about it.

Thursday we moved again, 210 miles found us at Cooper Lake State Park-South Sulphur Unit near Sulphur Springs TX. We settled in for 5 nights. A very nice park just wish we were up for walking the trails, but we did get out when it wasn’t raining and walked around our campground area. We did manage to get out for our first meal out in about a month.

Tuesday we moved 76 miles down the road to Purtis Creek State Park near Eustace TX where we only stayed 2 nights, we had planned 3 but with more rain on the way, we wanted to travel on a nicer day.

A 238-mile ride on Thursday found us pulling into Spring Creek Park in Tomball TX a day early. Since we were early our first night was in site 5 then the next morning moving into Site 4 when the occupants left. The trees have bushed out up top since we started coming here, next time we’ll try for sites 7 or 8 for easier satellite reception. Once we were settled we headed over to Dave’s Uncle Ray’s home.
With more rain in the future forecast, we opted to head on into our winter home, we were still recovering from our viral infection and ready to be done traveling. Of course, our 238-mile ride wasn’t uneventful, in East Barnard TX we found a place to pull over. Our tire pressure monitor indicated we had a tire losing air so we found a place where we could pull off and change it, 15 minutes later we were back on the road.
To date, Dave has only gotten a few days of fishing in, and the weather has turned cold and rainy. We are slowly getting back in our groove, walking a couple of miles a day when the weather permits and both of us are feeling better every day. Our friends Vic and Phyllis have arrived at a nearby park and we're already getting our card games going again.
