31/03/07 - Donna, TX -Set off at 8.00am and again exercised my right not to pay for an overnight hook-up.Yet another visit to Wal-Mart (my second home) and bought some provisions - bacon,eggs, mushrooms, bread, coffee, bananas, milk, cooking oil, scissors, waste bags, toothbrush & paste, tinfoil, doormat, new trainers,and of course cigarettes. Made breakfast in the car park. (one thing I don't understand, when I cook breakfast the Fire Alarm activates, but when I smoke nothing stirs, Why's that?)
Miserable weather and awful driving conditions, storms all day, (something not right about rain and palm trees, seems contradictory). Nothing to see down this side of the Gulf coast of Texas. Arrived at Harlingen at the foot of the Rio Grande (near Mexican Border) @ 1.45pm.
Having arrived at Harlingen Country Club to be told I couldn't play coz it was a private club, I decided to go for the "rich man's" hook up for the night (see previous entry).

"Victoria Palms" RV resort - "the best available" @ $25/night (13). It has everything, a restaurant, a bar, a general store, a fitness room and a 12000sq ft dance floor. (don't think i will see the latter two facilities but the bar seems likely!).
You can tell it's rich because the Office Registration is closed at weekends.(which by the way means, if I exercise option 2 I'll get 2 nights for the price of 1!)

PS: At a cumulative 3524 miles my RV is now overdue a service (yet another cost I didn't plan for!) And I still haven't replaced my wing mirror!
