Upon leaving San Antonio, we drove a new route to take us around the madness that is Dallas/Fort Worth. This route was recommended to us by another New Horizons owner with an HDT. Taking US281 all the way north, our first stop was a park near Santo TX; Coffee Creek RV. It was a really nice park, nice sites and lots of room. One afternoon, we drove into Mineral Wells (the closest largest town with amenities) for fuel and a few groceries, about 15 miles. There was a bit of a surprise when encountering a railway underpass of only 13’ 11” (we are 13’ 6”) that was not on any of our maps. I sent a note to the people at lowclearances.com. Apparently, most railway bridges over roads are privately owned by the railroads, who are under no obligation to report to anyone, their bridge heights. We held our breath and ducked while going under the train tracks and that seemed to help, practice for when we come this way actually towing our rig. The bridge over the Brazos River was a box girder bridge, with a clearance of 14’ 1”. As long as the first number is 14, I don’t get excited, but any time I see 13, it’s slow down and think about it.

IMG_0650IMG_0652The park has no shade, but the sites are nice and roomy. There is a short walking trail to a fishing hole that is suffering from the Texas drought, but it was a nice walk for Robbie. Along the way, we came across some gigantic spiders and webs that would make Shelob proud.

There were also some quiet neighbors on the other side of the park, who kept to themselves, but there was one who kept a close eye on Robbie as we walked by.
