2,068 Travel Miles Later… 

 July 22, 2018 |  By David Risley


Last I checked in here on the blog, we were in Little Rock, Arkansas and weathering some insanely hot temperatures.

From there, we continued west through Oklahoma, the Texas panhandle, New Mexico… to where we sit now in Durango, Colorado. And yes, it is MUCH nicer here. Currently 86 degrees, low humidity. The wife is very happy. 😉

More on that in another post. First, let’s discuss how the rest of our 2,068 mile drive from Florida went.

In our first Oklahoma campground, I decided to take out my drone (DJI Mavik Pro) and get some footage of the place. I am by no means adept with this drone yet. The footage is overexposed and it is a little long-winded, but it was a first attempt. 🙂

From there, we continued to a little known little campground right on the border of Oklahoma and Texas on I-40. It is called the “Double D” RV Park. Tiny little thing… right next to the interstate. But, a lot of space and we really enjoyed it as an overnighter. It was only $28 for the night for 50-amp full hookups. Also, even though it was right next to the interstate, it was surprisingly quiet.

And yes, of course, I whipped out the drone there, too…

If you ever stop at the Double D during your travels, you might think the place looks abandoned. It isn’t, however. You pay for your site inside the restaurant. Just ignore the fact that the place looks empty and there’s an abandoned gas station next to it. The campground is legit.

From there, we hiked across Texas. Stopped at a Sam’s Club in Amarillo to do what all RV owners do…

From there, we were off into New Mexico. We stopped for a night in Tucumcari at the KOA. The Double D didn’t have a pool, so I had to ensure the kids got their pool the next night. 🙂

Next stop was the KOA in northern Albuquerque. The neighborhood around it doesn’t look like much, but the actual campground was quite nice.

That morning, we picked up Highway 550 and headed northward up toward Durango.

And we’ll pick up there on our next post. 🙂
