Shortstop: Windmill RV Park – Merkel, TX

After a drive of 350 miles we were ready for an overnight stop. We arrived at Windmill RV Park, just west of Abilene, in Merkel, Texas. The park is just a short distance north of I20. The gravel sites are long and level and WiFi is good. There are also restrooms and a laundry. My Verizon signal couldn’t have been stronger. The cell tower overlooks the campground! Overnight there was a few minutes of concern. There’s some kind of heavy equipment yard next door. About 4:30 a.m. we were treated to what sounded like someone banging on a big metal drum. It only lasted about 5 minutes, but it certainly brought us up out of a sound sleep.
