Travel to Casa Grande Arizona

Monday to Wednesday Feb 1-3/10
1200 miles driven

Packed up and travelled up the road to San Antonio and then got on Interstate I-10 for many miles. Monday night we stopped at Segovia Texas - was an EconoLodge that had a few RV sites in a field beside it. Only $16 for the night but we had to go to the lodge lobby to use the internet and the restrooms were not pretty. The Lodge was run by an East Indian family which seemed out to place in Texas ranch land.

Tuesday we almost made it out of Texas but stopped on the east side of El Paso and ventured to the Cattleman's Steakhouse. This place was 5 miles off the highway and had all kinds of attractions with the restaurant - little zoo with rabbits, goats, peacocks, deer, llamas, buffalo, cattle and rattlesnakes; a lake complete with some Canadian geese; western movie set - a list of 10 movies were partially filmed on this site. Their largest steak in the Steakhouse was called the Cowboy - a 2lb T-bone. We did eat there ($50) and stayed the night parked in their RV area (no charge).
Wednesday took us through El Paso and finally out of Texas and into New Mexico for 200 miles and then into Arizona, through Tuscon to Casa Grande. Most of the day we travelled through rainy drizzle and temperatures in the 40s but when we arrived in Casa Grande, the temperature climbed to over 60 degrees and the sun was shining. We are in Leisure Valley RV Resort in a temporary spot for the night and will find a better location to stay the month of February and spend quality time with our good friends - Lynn and Tom Brudnicki.
