After much serious discussion on what to do about the broken hitch jack, we finally decided to go to Shamrock, Texas as planned. We were going to stay there two nights, take the trailer off the hitch, go to Big Vern’s for dinner, and then go back to the campground and rest a bit. The new plan was to go to Big Vern’s first, park in the big parking lot of C&H Supply and walk across Route 66 to the restaurant, then go to the campground. That plan worked our really well.
We got to Shamrock around 4:00 p.m. Big Vern’s wasn’t very crowded at that time of day, so we were seated right away. Sweet tea! Oh how I have missed you! Salad, corn muffins, and filet mignon cooked to perfection, with a side of carmelized onions and mushrooms. Divine!
When we got to Shamrock, it was 95 degrees. I sat in the truck with the AC on while Fabgrandpa got the trailer hooked up to the electricity and water. It didn’t take him long, because we weren’t getting the trailer off the hitch. When the hook ups were done, we both went inside and went to straight to bed for a nap.
One night in Shamrock, and this morning when we get on the road, we’ll be headed for Choctaw, Oklahoma, with a stop at Camping World in Oklahoma City to get a new electric hitch jack. We don’t want to be stuck on the hitch forever!
