We scheduled a visit at a KOA park in Carlsbad, NM for Saturday. So we had to make some good time going across Texas. Jim drove 400 miles and I had the computer on my lap most of the way.
We stayed at the Escapees park in Pecos, TX.
We made it to Carlsbad in plenty of time. The last 5 miles Jim had to wrestle with the steering wheel to counteract the wind. We got parked and sat in the motorhome with the wind pounding us. I heard various numbers … indluding gusts up to 60mph. Hurricane strength is 74 – but I swear that what we felt today was like Hurricane Katrina in Fort Lauderdale. Gee – this is the second time in the last 10 days I’ve compared current weather to a hurricane … yuk.
Our seminar went well, and the wind is quieting down now. It sure is amazing how just hearing and feeling the wind can mentally and physically wear you out.
