|Our spot at the Casino|
We pulled into Camping World about 0730 and proceeded to have our breakfast of yogurt and fruit. We saw workers running around and I think 3 men talked to Ken to ask if we had an appointment. When we arrived there was a motorhome in the parking lot and they left pretty quickly. Apparently they don't allow overnight camping. Boo on them!

About 0850 or so we saw a huge fifth wheel pull to the back so Ken decided to go into CW and make sure they knew we were there. The girl came out put a number on and about 0915 they put us in line. One worker walks up and says "What the hell you doing?" You need to unhook, Ken followed him and they had a not so nice conversation, the guy was a jerk. He said he's not a tech doesn't know if they need the truck or what. Finally, Ken talked to another guy and he gave better info. They had us pull up out of the lot and then unhook. Long story short about 1130 or so they told us it was done. Ken told him we needed someone to explain how it works as we've never had one.
Finally about 1140 Dave came out and did a nice job of explaining and showing how to hook and unhook the Weight Distrubution Hitch. So, $452.00 later we're done. Thanks Dave, nice guy.
1150 we pulled out and headed towards the freeway. We stopped for lunch at a beautiful road side rest area and then headed on.
|Truck and trailer definitely sit even now..|
|Along I 10|
I was looking for Passport America Campgrounds down the road. Found one located in Bowie, AZ only 106 miles from where we started. The next ones were a lot further than we wanted to travel. We pulled in at about 1430.
This is a wonderful park. Mountain View RV Park. It has gas, propane and a cute shop with homemade fudge, jerky and flavored nuts of all kinds. Bathrooms, showers and a laundromat too. Dwayne told Ken this is where he really makes his money, in the shop. There were any flavor of anything you could want. He keeps coffee going all day and it's free. You can leave a donation if you like but not necessary. Check in was a breeze, gave the cashier $16.14 for the night and pick our own spot.
|Rocks at the Rest Area|
it's a cute place, nice wide spots and full hookups. Trains run all hours of the day and night, but that doesn't bother us. I will definitely put this one on our list of places we would stay again.
|Our site, nice and wide..|

We just enjoyed the afternoon and evening and called it a night after some thrown together dinner. Ken was going to bar b q but there were meat bees and he didn't feel like fighting them.
Slept in this am (Thursday) until 0620. It doesn't help I was awake at 0215 again for a couple of hours. Hate it when that happens. Oh well on with the day.
The hitch works well, Ken says he can feel the difference in the swaying of the trailer. That's wonderful. When we got to the park, I asked him if he had his lights on, No....well, the brake lights were on with the truck and trailer! Bummer, now we're thinking it's a truck problem. It didn't happen until the last leg of the trip somewhere after lunch. The ABS system didn't come on so we're not sure what's up with that. Keep ya posted.
Looks like we're headed for Elephant Butte State Park, reading this morning we're missing Bill and Patsy by a few hours. :( Maybe down the road we'll catch them or someone else!
Have a wonderful day! Travel Safe!
