|Organizing is exhausting!|
The next day, we headed to Pecos, TX. We spent the night at an Escapees park. We knew the reviews were bad for this park and we had heard it was the worst park in the Escapees system, but we wanted to see for ourselves. Yep, it was bad. It is not full of retirees. It is full of oil field workers. We don't have a problem with that, but we do have a problem with the condition of the park. It looks very run down. It is basically just a parking lot with trailers on it. Escapees should be embarrassed to have their name on this park. The park manager spoke to us and told us that no one wants to work there. He and his wife have a deal where they work for nine months and get three off.

We finally left Texas on Wednesday. We saw some pretty scenery as we left Texas and drove through New Mexico and Arizona.

|Scout looks pretty happy at this rest area.|
We arrived at an Escapees park in Benson, AZ on Thursday. We stayed there for two nights. Our stay was free thanks to our friends, Val and Lee. They had won a free stay there, but couldn't use it, so they gave it to us.
|Our site was quite large.|
|See, we have lots of room.|
|We were not allowed to sniff the landscaping.|
|This is the large dog park. Just gravel. :-(|

|Is Scout happy or concerned?|
|This is the club house. There is an exercise room, library, etc.|
|People lease the lots and they really take pride in their homes.|
|There is a train track going through this yard.|
|This is where people dry camp (camp without any hook-ups).|
This park is very nice. Dad asked Mom if she would want to stay there in the winter. She told him no. She said it was not a good park for us because of all the cacti and no grass. We also had to be on the lookout for rattlesnakes. They do come into the park. We were told so by one of the residents. The people there were very nice. One man gave Dad a tour of his home. A welcome wagon even came by while the folks were gone. They left them a packet of information.
