After a night with high winds, we made an early start this morning.  West Texas is big and Don got a call late last night that indicated that his Mom was not doing well.  Not far into the trip, a second call told us that she had passed away early this morning.  Cell phone coverage was not great today but, periodically, we were able to get more details and make plans for the next few days.
We had originally hoped to connect with on-the-road friends but that was set aside and we stayed on I-10 so that we could make the best time possible.  Our choices were two days back to Austin or two days on to Phoenix.  We opted to move forward as it would allow us a visit with Scott when we return, abeit a short one.
We put in a long day of driving on mostly flat or rolling highway and just as we pulled up to a park in Willcox AZ, we got a call from friends in Sunsites, a nearby community, and opted to spend the night parked near their house.  This allowed us to touch base for a short visit and put us a little closer to our destination.
