Tulsa, OK to Palo Duro Canyon, Texas

We awoke pretty early with the time change and everyone slept comfortably. I love my Tempur-Pedic pillow top, Legna duvet and my Gravity weighted blanket to top it of. It’s like all the comforts of home. I am a very fussy sleeper so to say I slept well is pretty damn good.
We started our day with K cups and Cheerios and I am impressed with how the girls have pitched in to help. Turns out, Ayla is pretty handy with a dish drying rag. We left the garbage scented luxury of the Mingo RV Park to drive straight into a snowstorm…in Texas. I mean, I thought Texas was a fucking desert. Brad says we aren’t sliding on the highway MUCH. We are averaging about 35 MPH and it is pretty much white knuckle driving all day. Even brad is a little nervous, which, if any of you know my husband you know that is not good. It will be a long day of driving today.
To sum up day 2: Traffic, ice, snow storm, cancellation, repeat. Staying in a different location tonight outside the Palo Duro Canyon because the RV site we rented was not accessible due to the ice and snow. Apparently the 10’ grade at the entrance is completely covered in ice and has the current RV residents stranded.
We made it to an abandoned Adventure park at the rim of the canyon in time to see some beautiful views. I was very thankful for the heat in the Airstream. We are making the most out of our 30 feet utilizing every square inch.
Dinner tonight was short rib tacos and fresh guac. If you want to try out my super easy 3 step guac, you can find the recipe on my membership site here.
