Hondo and Fort Stockton, TX, Dec 18-19, 2011

Sunday, we arrived at the SKP park, Lone Star Corral, about 8 miles west of Hondo.  The reason for coming here, to get our Norcold frig recall module replaced, it went bad when we were in Virginia and the repair shop bypassed it had told us to get it replaced when we got home.  Well, our home is where we park it, so that answer was a major cop out.  Murphy at Matthews RV Repair lives at the Hondo SKP park, we had used him to do our original recall last March, so it seemed he was our best bet.  An email a few weeks ago to him had let him order the recall module, so when we arrived here, he was ready.

He arrived about 9 am, and done by 9:20.

So by 10 am we were not our way to Fort Stockton.  The forecast rain followed us out of Hondo for a hour or so, then cleared up.   The scenery is definitely changing, looking more and more like the west we love.

These mesas have windmills on them.

In the special moment in time…take a chance

You look mighty comfortable behind that wheel. Did you have to fight with Bob before you gave him back the wheel?

You must have been a race car driver in a previous life... ;c)
