Home Turf

Home Turf, Site; Driveway
Rockwall, Texas
Weather Condition; High 56, Low 38,

We started loading up about nine A.M Tuesday morning so that we could leave Daingerfield SP and head back to Rockwall around noon. Well, we’d met a really nice couple from Missouri (Donny and Judy) they were at the site across the street from us. We made quick friends with them. Anyway, Judy came by to visit and brought a cup towel she had crocheted a drawer handle on. It’s very cute and matches our colors great. We got so carried away talking and time was ticking by. An hour later we were back to getting ready for the road.   

Then we met Polly and Paul. They’re also a very nice couple. They were in a site located down the street from us. We started our conversation talking about our fur kids and then Polly mentioned Tyler SP and the dutch-oven cooking they do every first Saturday of each month. Dawn has always been interested in learning how to do the dutch-oven cooking. Well before you know it another hour had past.

It’s been so much fun meeting people along our travels. We have made many new friends in our very short time as full-timers.

Back to the day’s events, we finally did pull out of Daingerfield SP a little after one. We really weren’t ready to leave Daingerfield but we both have medical appointments and needed to get back to Rockwall.

The weather was nice but the wind was blowing when we pulled out. When we arrived at I-30 there were cops, tow trucks and dump trucks at the underpass at the I-30 entrance ramp. We were shocked to see a travel trailer, what remained of a travel trailer that a car had driven through. The only thing that even looked like a travel trailer was the rear bumper and the rear wall. The axels were knocked out from under it and the walls were gone. There was stuff scattered all over the intersections. We later found out that a car had driven through it. We aren’t sure what the cause was or if anyone was hurt. We have searched the web and can’t find any info on it.

It was an awful site. Your heart just sinks. We pray that everyone involved is O.K but it’s hard to believe it could be possible from what we saw.

We finally did make it to Rockwall. We pulled into our old driveway. It didn’t take us long to get set up and we sat back and relaxed for a while.

We’ve been busy since we arrived back into town. We have a lot to get done while we’re here. We both need haircuts; I have dentist appointments for a broken tooth and several fillings. Dawn has her blood work and doctor’s appointments. We need to take things to storage, visit friends and family, wash and wax the fiver, clean and condition the roof and numerous other things. The list goes on and on.

I do have faith that we will get it all done before we head out for Rockport.

  2. Never good to see an accident site but it hits really close to home when it is an RV. Hoping everyone was okay.
