Sanger, Texas

There is a Camping World in Denton, Texas, and I like their RV sheet sets (top sheet is fitted) so we aimed there from Shreveport.  Then I remembered that one of our South Fork campers lived hereby, so we called and set up a time to meet for dinner.

We picked out Wagon Master RV Park to stay because it is a Passport America park.  Then when I checked in I found that the owners owned an RV Park in Buena Vista, CO and both owners earned their masters degree from Adam State in Alamosa, CO.  We talked of favorite restaurants there like Campus Café and El Charro.  Nice to talk to folks about home. 

This is a very, very nice park.  Clean, well maintained, level sites, etc. Cute theme buildings. Highly recommend.


Look at the laundry


Here is a view of the park


Our friends picked out going to Babe’s Chicken Dinner House in Sanger. Wow, wow, wow, what a choice! The inside and outside are very unique.




They offer only six choices – smoked chicken, fried chicken, fried chicken tenders, chicken fried steak, fried catfish and something else.  You pick your entrée and then all the meals come with all-you-can-eat sides served family style in big white bowls.  You get creamed corn, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, biscuits and sorghum molasses.  Look at the platter of chicken.  And see how big Jim’s chicken fried steak is compared to his hand?  Oh, and look at that coconut cream pie!


We enjoyed visiting with our friends Lani, Richard and son, Nathaniel.



We were surprised to see we were in Braum’s country here in northern Texas.  I was happy and had to have an ice cream cone before dinner….yes, I got chocolate, of course.

Well, that’s it for tonight.  We learned that our buddies, The Two Lindas, are traveling to Norman, OK tomorrow, so we are detouring and driving there to meet them and another South Fork campers, Susie and Dave who live in Norman.  It only adds 100 miles to our trip to Amarillo….what’s 100 miles amongst friends?  Nothing!!!!

Remember, you are loved.


  1. Be sure to say Hi! to Suzie and Jim for me.

  2. We used to manage a storage facility in McKinney, know that Camping World in Denton well. Love Babes!

  3. I love the little theme shacks in the park, and I love that old school jukebox! Did it work? What kind of music did it play? Looks like you guys ate more than you could take lol... Thanks for the post!

    Howdy B&J,
    Babe's does have good food everywhere they are!!! Jim's CFS looks like a half-order anywhere else in Texas!!! Wandering around in Indian Territory, WATCH OUT FOR STATE TROOPERS, they 'bite' really hard up there!!! The Indians are friendly, though!!! Norman hardly ever gets hit with TORNADOES, except in EARLY APRIL!! HEE HEE!!!
    We'll try to NOT send any while y'all are there, tho!!! Hope y'all have a great time visiting with the 'girls' and riding their motocycles!!!! Keep on meandering westward and northward and maybe old man winter will leave by the time y'all get back up to the hills!!! Be safe and have lots of FUN!!!! Remember y'all are 2, also!!!!


I really enjoy reading comments so please take a moment and say HI or something so I know someone is reading this thing.
