Laredo, Texas

Sunday, March 4, 2007 (Happy Birthday Jeff!)

sunny 0 °F

Another Sunday morning and we're on the road so no church. We watched Hour of Power last night & this morning, but not the same thing. We haven't figured out how to attend church while on the road yet--it's hard since we normally have to check out of the campground by 11am and then we have a 35 ft trailer, which most churches do not have parking for. We'll figure it out eventually....I just found out that my bedroom closet has a light last night :-)

The drive to Laredo is uneventful. We're driving along the U.S./Mexico border so we have to stop every hour or so for a Border Patrol check. We stop for lunch at a picnic stop on top of a hill overlooking the Rio Grande River, so Mexico is easily visible. There's a 30-year-old hispanic man at the other picnic table, listening to loud music and occasionally doing push-ups. I'm sure he's either an undercover border patrolman or an illegal immigrant smuggler :-)

We stop at Lake Casa Blanca International State Park in Laredo, TX for the night. We debated driving another hour or two, but we're not sure there will be any campgrounds for at least 100 miles after Laredo and this park is nice. So we walk around the lake and campground for an hour or so, before having dinner and making a quick Wal-Mart run for supplies. Joe wants s'mores tonight and I ate the last chocolate bar several days ago--there were a couple days there when I just really needed a chocolate bar :-)

So in the evening we have the first campfire of the trip and our first s'mores!
