We left Hondo Friday morning and drove to Georgetown. Texas….didn’t want to overdo the first day.
Got up Saturday morning and headed to Thackerville, Oklahoma to the Winstar Casino. Those of you that know Jim know that we always have to make a “casino” stop on our way to and from home. In the past, it has always been Tunica, Mississippi. But, this fall, Jim discovered the Winstar. We had planned on staying at the casino RV Park but, after calling for reservations, we found out that they had raised their rates to $45.00 per night…….a little out of our price range. So, there was a Passport America park just down the road…….Red River 5 Star RV Resort…….now don’t get to excited…..this was definitely not a 5 star resort and, if you don’t mind fire ants and your RV site full of “stickers” it was okay for $15.00 per night. We got set up and Jim headed over to the casino while I stayed back and enjoyed the “5 star amenities” of the resort! Jim came back around 4 p.m. to pick me up for dinner. We had a very nice Tex-Mex dinner at the El Finex in the casino and I deposited my $20.00 and Jim took me back home and went back to the casino to continue making his deposits…..
The next part of our trip was to Tahlequah, Oklahoma to visit very dear friends Bob and BJ. We met them our first year on the road and have kept in touch through the years. A number of years ago they came off the road and bought a very lovely place in Tahlequah. We played “catch-up” Sunday afternoon and Monday went on a picnic to Honor Heights Park which was just beautiful.
We finished our picnic and headed home just before the storm front came through. Thank you again Bob and BJ for a lovely visit. We so enjoy your company……..
Today was a long day….460 miles….but we made it into Illinois and stopped at a little campground in Litchfield. Tomorrow we will be in Woodstock…….we are looking forward to seeing our kids and grandsons……it’s going to be a great summer.
Take care…..love to all……
Linda and Jim
