We were up as usual this morning, and after having a quick breakfast and coffee, we were packed up and moving about 8:30, or right on time from an overnight stop. s soon as we hit the open road it began to rain lightly and continued all the way to Thackerville. Not only did we fight the rain, we had gusty winds to deal with as well. It certainly effected the fuel mileage today! Yesterday, coming down out of the mountains, we made very good mileage, showing almost 13 miles per gallon but today was much worse, around 8-9 mpg.
It was pouring rain when we arrived and it didn't take me long to get soaked while I got the water and electricity set up. I came inside and saw some water on the floor from an apparent leak around the kitchen slide, but it was dried up quickly. I added a small puddle where I was standing, but it too dried up well.
Our friends, Tony and Erika were coming in from Cisco, where they live, and told us to do our own thing for supper since they would be later arriving, so we ate in and relaxed until they arrived. They got here a little after 7, and after hugs and handshakes, we again split up, then to get something to eat and us to stay inside, out of the never-ending rain!
It had been a long trip, in the rain, but we were glad to be here spending time with friends.
