We’re camped tonight at a wide piece of state right-of-way. Because of the close proximity to the highway, and remembering their performance last night, we have the horses tied to the wagon for the night. This is actually a nice camping spot. There is a large herd of Longhorn cattle in the pasture next to us and we are some distance from the road. There is also several pools of fresh water from yesterday’s rain, so watering the team is no problem.
This was a very superb day.
P.S. - I think the pressure got to John McComsey. He told me yesterday that Marylyn and him plan on hitching up the mules and joining up with us about April First. Thanks to everyone who applied a little E-mail persuasion - but then again, once you’re jaded by some wagon travel, you’re forever a gypsy at heart.
