Answer: Old Fort Sumner Cemetery. Today’s marathon drive started at our Lake Waco Marina and Campground stay. Our goal was to make it to Arizona. To stretch our legs, we made a pit stop here after 8 hours of driving.
With Hurricane Hanna having made landfall in Texas, we had timed leaving Destin, FL as Hurricane Isaias approached the east coast. So much rain with windy weather as we had our marathon drive leaving Florida and getting out of Alabama, Mississippi, to Louisiana… blazing through these states off the I-10 on a 9 hour drive. Yesterday, we boondocked at Buc-ee’s in Katy, TX… only 3 hours from Waco, TX.
We had to passthrough Texas to get home to Arizona… but where haven’t we been yet? As fans of HGTV’s Fixer Upper show, we planned our pitstop at their Silos Baking Co before settling in at Lake Waco Marina and Campground.
Found this motorhome on RV Trader and reached out to the dealer. Spoke with Duane Kimbriel who gave us a video/facetime walkthrough of the RV. Negotiated pricing and loan/financing details. Next thing you know, we’re off figuring out flying to Apopka Florida. We highly recommend Central Florida RV Center which has a 4.8 out of 5 star rating (55 reviews) on Google.
Located only a few minutes north of the Laughlin Strip, there were 9 miles of Colorado River front to choose from… a variety of walks and hikes, fishing spots, shaded picnic areas and a day-use park with Davis Dam as its backdrop. We choose to take the Heritage Trails Loop then continue on to Davis Dam Trail that splits the dam and Lake Mohave… 5.25 miles roundtrip.
Went exploring about ~15 miles from home on the Polaris Rzr to get some fresh air. Blessed that social distancing is easy to practice when you’re outdoors in our area… simply, because there’s lots of land to spread out and there aren’t as many people as you find in the big cities. On this ride, we discovered the United Oatman Mine. In one word – creepy!
