Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - Lake Murray State Park, Ardmore, OK - 183 Miles, 9,702.2 Miles for the Trip


A pretty serious cold front went through overnight. Lots of severe thunderstorm & tornado warnings, and the park supervisor driving up to each RV and letting them know what was coming. It got me nervous enough that I stayed up reading until the front went by around 2:00AM. While there was lots of rain, thunder & lightning, and wind, it was no worse that others I've sat through, although it did look nasty on my weather radar app. 

Because I was up so late, I got a late start in the morning, leaving the campground around 10:00. Most of the drive was on Texas farm roads, a couple of US highways, and about 30 miles on I 35. Lots of wind on the drive, but sunny skies. I made a short stop at the Bridgepost, TX Brookshire's for gas & food.

I'm in site 18 in the Buzzard's Roost campground (there are 9 campgrounds in the park). Site 18 is a pull through, full hookup level site for $28.00 per night with a $2.00 senior discount. It is still windy, but warm at 76°F at 5:00.

Site 18

Because I got a late start this morning, I didn't get quite as far as I expected, so tomorrow's drive is going to be longer than normal. I have reservations for 2 nights at the Aux Arc on Ozark Lake (which is actually the Arkansas River) in Ozark, AR. While I hate to make reservations, there was only 2 sites left in the park, so I did.

Dinner was a turkey sandwich & the last of the salad.

Until Tomorrow -
