Enough of This Wind, Already!

There is no such thing as a perfect RV park. The Oasis RV Resort comes fairly close for a commercial RV park, but there are 2 things that stand in the way. First, somewhere in the area there's a stockyard or feedlot. Yes, I know, the smell of money! The problem with that is it's someone else's money we're smelling. I'd learn to love it, I'm sure, if was my money!

The second is the wind. Relentless, constant, ever-annoying. We're out here on the western plains, outside of Amarillo, and there's just nothing to stop, or even slow down, that wind. The only thing I can tell is that it changes direction now and then, but it's been blowing hard ever since we pulled in a couple of days ago, and it's still going strong tonight, our last night here.

This is the office, which is interesting because it is not located at the entrance to the park. I'm not sure why it's designed this way, but you have to drive into the park and around the perimeter to reach this destination:

Behind the office is the pool and hot tub. On the other side of the building, there's an adults-only spa:

One of the features of this park is free laundry. There are three of these buildings located throughout the park, and each one has 4 washers and 4 dryers, as well as restrooms:

This picture shows three rows. The first row is just the empty site, the second there are two rigs side by side, and the third row shows our Castle - the one in the center. You can tell that the sites are huge!

And the back of the Castle, with another rig next to us:

One other plus of this park is that rig washing is allowed. We've taken advantage of both the free laundry as well as washing the Castle while here.
Our other purpose for being here has been to visit with Shirley and Mike, cousins who live here. We've had a good visit, gotten caught up with a few "to-do" items, and now we're ready to go find someplace where the wind isn't blowing so hard!

Wow...what a nice RV Park...but you are right, the wind is never ending.

Safe travels,

We were there end of April--loved the free laundry. We also took advantage of the free limo ride to the local steakhouse---it was excellent.
