Travel Day 11-17-2019

Where Are We Today
Rest Area Saragosa Texas

Tonight we are at this rest area , exit 212 off I-10, at the bottom of the exit ramp.

This has been a great travel day, leaving the Sam's Club parking lot just before 8 a.m., we were on I-10 within 5 minutes, rolling through the rest of the San Antonia construction. Being Sunday, there were only a couple of workers out moving pylons, probably for tomorrow. Even with this being major road work to I-10, the travel areas of it are fairly smooth, in fact, I would rate the days travel as being an 8 out if 10 for an average.
Construction at San Antonio

Our 347 mile route through this part of Texas sees a lot of open country and change in elevation, climbing from 600 ft. to over 3300 ft., with speed limits starting at 60 mph., then to 75 mph and finally topping out at 80 mph. We of course,  cruise along at 65 mph., that's plenty fast enough for our likening.
Up and down thru the cuts in the rock
The scenery is breath taking, as you look out over the open landscape, with the foothills rising to the mountains we will see tomorrow and the first glimpse of cactus. This is the southwest that we come to enjoy each winter.
What a view!

Thanks for stopping by, check in with
Patsy for an in depth look of our day. Until the next time, take care and be safe.
Prayers and hugs to you, George and Suzie.



  1. Lots of miles today and still able to settle down for the evening before sunset. Enjoy the evening.

  2. I honestly think 65 is a perfect speed for anyone! Why 80 i'll never know :0 Looks like a really nice place to hang for the night ;)

    1. I agree, 65 mpg. Yes it was a really nice to hang for the night.

  3. We are in the 55 to 60 mph
    Always like when we start seeing cactus. Next week Saguaros and Ocotillos will be in our view!!! Enjoy New Mexico and continued safe travels.

    1. 65 is my top, 60 - 63 mpg is where the truck seems to get it's best mileage.
