Giant Storms, a New Camera, Levelland Texas, and a Great Free RV Spot
Armed with our Nikon D5200 and ready to take better looking photos, we finally started heading west!
And, it appears we may have left a little early. Along our path, we encountered tornado sirens – causing us to have to duck and hide in a Walmart, temperatures dropping into the 30’s, and another large storm system heading right for us.
Wanting a way to have some heat, and to not be pummeled by a tornado, we started planning a route around the storms, where we could sit right on the border of rain and cold. Kind of in the little sweet spot, where we didn’t have too much of either.
This lead us to the town of Levelland, just a little west of Lubbock, Texas.
Levelland is one of several areas around Lubbock, where you can find an RV parking area – complete with power, water, and a dump station – for the low, low price of free. That’s right, free. Some locations have a 5 day limit, some have a 3 day, all of them are a pretty awesome of the town to offer.
So, what is this free RV parking like? It is next to a road, causing some traffic noise that calms down quite a bit at night. Picnic tables are located on the road side and dumpsters are at the rear of the area. Lastly, there is a small municipal airport a few hundred feet from the rear of the park, where you can watch small planes landing and taking off. Don’t worry, it’s not loud like you might think.
If you’re up for a bike ride, it is only around a couple of miles in to Levelland’s downtown, where you will find lots of shops and some great vintage architecture. We love exploring areas like this, so our bike rides are always some of our favorite things.
We’ll wrap this post up with a gallery of photos from around the town of Levelland, Texas.
