Texas Oil Fields- Monday, March 18, 2013
We were on the move this morning at 8:40am heading west on I-20. We did stop for fuel at a Love's soon after starting. We traveled through the hill country of Texas and then we were in the oil fields area.
Oil drilling equipment was being relocated and the refineries appeared to be in full swing. We had planned to stay in Odessa tonight but had heard that the campgrounds were filled with workers from the oil fields so we weren't sure if we could find a site in a campground or would need to go to a fair ground in the area. We stopped at Midessa Oil Patch RV Park and were able to get a site for the night although there are many workers in this campground. Our travels today were a little shorter than the previous days at 298 miles and we were off the road before 3pm. Tomorrow we hope to be through this state of Texas.
