Adventure Location: Fort Davis to Seminole Canyon State Park, Texas
WOW it was an exciting evening last night. In an upper loop of the Davis Mountains State Park where the Teams spent the night was a travel trailer that looked familiar. It turned out to be that great blogger GUMO. He had been at the park for a couple of days. We had a nice conversation and since it was dark and he is a wonderful gentleman, he offered to take me back down to the Castle in his truck. That way the OFM did not have to worry about fighting any rattlesnakes during his walk back down the hill to the Castle. If you ever cross paths with him you will enjoy the visit.
The Teams left on the next leg of the journey back to our prepaid site in Rockport about 0830 this morning. The OFM was not feeling too frisky but the Teams rolled anyway. Everything went fine and traffic was almost nonexistent on the highways. A little before noon the heat hit with a vengeance. We had also dropped about 3000 feet of elevation. By 1330 it was miserable hot. The trucks we saw were leaving tire ruts in the hot asphalt road. The Teams took a vote and decided to get off the road at Seminole Canyon SP near Comstock.
We are the only FRV (fried recreational vehicle) in the campground. About 1730 the OFM made a silly mistake and went out for a walk. It was a very short walk. Back at the Castle we checked the temperature at Rockport and it was 90. We checked the temperature in Comfort and it was 106. It is not surprising that from when the AC on the Castle was turned on right after we got set up, that it still has not cycled even once and it is now 1845. The hot dry wind is rocking us around fairly violently.
For now the plan is to roll out early and try to get most of the next leg of the journey over before the heat gets too bad. Soon we will be back in Rockport where the humidity makes certain you need a bath every night. But at least the morning temps will let you hit the fishing areas for trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
