SEGMENT 8--Amarillo, TX to Oklahoma City, OK

Well, week one down. Sort of a take it easy day and football day. Small roadside attractions, but nothing to write home about. Tonight we sleep in Wal-Mart parking lot.

So the in's and out's of motorhome life. Grandpa recently had back surgery and is still recovering. He has limited mobility and uses a wheeled-walker to go short distances and a motorized scooter for longer distances. As long as i can keep him exercising every day he will be able to recover more quickly.

Getting used to the motor home and where everything was located took a few days. Grandpa had to teach me how to start the generator, set up his power inverter, connect to city water, and yes, how to dump the black water holding tanks.  Just the other day he taught me how to make a u-turn using a bootleg movement where you back up across the road first, and then you are clear to pull forward. Quick and easy.
