One thing I have noted on the last couple trips is that Northern Texas and Oklahoma on the I-35 corridor is now heavily involved with "Fracking"....and this has had an impact on the quality of the Motels in the area..they seem to be catering to the long term young Oil workers rather than their Nighty guests...which is understandable...but what has occurred is the condition and cleanness in the rooms have gone down hill....another reason to convince my bride that Ms. Casita should be our Comfort Inn on these travels...

The next day Tuesday(30 April)...0530 in the morning...I start getting ready for a Loooong walk and I notice that one of my toes is really swollen and hurts....so did I bang it against something after my second margarita or is there an infection that set in...forgo walk and call the foot Doc at 0800...bottom line, its an infection..they do stuff that needs NOT to be explained and send me home with antibiotics and instructions on what to do twice a day, etc... well 2 days into this "treatment" I start having a bad reaction to the antibiotics....back to the Doc. and begin a new regiment .....the good news is I can do my daily walks...the weather has been better than perfect and I'm walking 7-8 miles each morning starting at 0615...need to make sure I can see if any snakes are lying in the road....have had enough Doctor visits..
Started working on some stuff inside the camper...reattached the bathroom door which I had taken off a couple years ago...doing a side shelf(cutting board) thing by the stovetop to provide some more counter space....still trying to configure that....put some more Led lights in...and looking at what the best configuration would be when I have the 2 Gkids....it will be tight and they like to watch a little TV, play with their Xbox when it rains,etc....and there won't be any table set up..TV trays and outside eating will be the norm...also starting to look at places they would enjoy...Lynn of "Casita in the Desert, Casita in the Mountains" send me some GREAT info on the Gatlinburg area...also Barney of OFM had made several SUPER suggestions....I'm starting to get excited...of course at my advanced age it doesn't take much to get the blood flowing...
