The First Adventure Continues

So excited to be on the road, now the Continuing of our adventures…
Day 3
Left Caverns of Sonora headed to Ft Stockton with just a half a tank of fuel and thinking no problem we can get fuel anywhere along the way. WRONG… about 75 miles before we get to Ft Stockton, Ed says we better find a station real soon SO it’s ask Siri time on my phone. Sisi says closest gas station is in Iraan a little town 13 miles off I 10. and is 18 miles before the exit. Well we made it there and they had 2 stations. We picked the one we could get into, blocking some of the driveway, but we get our fuel and it’s back to I 10 we go. Later we found out that little town of Iraan use to be an Oil Boom town and named for a rancher Ira Yates and his wife Ann. They named it Iraan. Neat story. Got some neat pictures along the detour.

Tonight Nov 20 2014 we are staying at an RV Park in Ft Stockton.
Parkview RV Park
735 S Hwy 285
Ft Stockton TX 79735
432-336-0103
It’s a Passport America park for $13.00 The sites are level, full HU, 30/50 amp, on gravel and pull through. It’s a good park for a one night stay. If you don't have Passport America you are missing out on a GREAT value. There are so many parks across the US that offer it and you save 1/2 off the regular price. It's WELL worth the $39 a year, sometimes they even run a special of $29 a year.
