|We try (and sometimes it takes an effort) to avoid the Interstate Highway System. The GPS kept trying to get us on I20 to get to Hurst, where we intended to visit the kids for a couple of nights. We decided to drive US180 and stubbornly stuck to our own route. Because we got a relatively late start leaving Carlsbad, we didn't get too far. We also stubbornly refuse to drive very late in the day, unless it is absolutely necessary. Quitting time found us near Lamesa, Texas, where a campground guide said there is a free camp ground at a community park. Directions were good and we found it with no problem. An RV was just setting up. We pulled in behind it and proceeded to settle in. It didn't seem to matter to either of us that we were parked perpendicular to the RV spaces. It was more convenient to park across them, so we wouldn't have to unhook the car. I guess we were convinced we would have the place all to ourselves. Well!!! That certainly wasn't the case. RVs kept arriving. Clark would go out and help them get situated, because we certainly didn't want to move. He managed to get everyone parked and plugged into electricity and nobody seemed to be put out that we were parked wrong.
