EL PASO, TX
31 March, 2004. El Paso is no fun to drive through. The closer you get to the border, the more it feels like you're already in Mexico. Just as you cross into El Paso from New Mexico, there is a great Welcome Center with hundreds of pamphlets and booklets detailing a large portion of Texas. We appreciate the frontage roads that run along the interstates in Texas cities since our microbus doesn't like to go over 60 mph. We almost stayed at the Franklin Mountains State Park but they wanted $3 per person just to enter the park and $8 to camp with no clean water available. Apparently, it's not much fun camping there anyway. But we were also told that it's a great place for bicyclists. So, instead of paying a total of $14 to camp there, we found the Robin Hood RV Park with full hookups for $15.
