After a few months of some stress due to Judy’s medical issues, we finally got a bit of good news. A celebration was in order, which in our life means food. Continue reading
We felt like Chicken Little on I-45 in when a big “Bam” hit our windshield just behind the rear view mirror. We felt the glass shatter in small pieces and saw the cracks in the windshield. We pulled off the expressway at the first opportunity to check out the damage. Continue reading
We spent some time in Austin for Thanksgiving with family and got stuffed with turkey, dressing and pies. Austin has limited RV Parking without early reservations, so after we spent two weeks in the area dry camping, we headed south. Continue reading
When heading east form Arizona on I-10, finding spots to stop for a night or two is at times a challenge. We like to drive 200 or less miles per travel day, arrive by 2PM and stay overnight for two nights whenever possible. Continue reading
We’ve been quiet a while. I guess that the winter weather has slowed us down a bit and we are still in that keeping warm mode. We spent a month from mid-January to mid-February in Austin visiting family. The three little grandchildren were a joy to be with and they were great little campout buddies.
They seemed to like to spend time in the rig at the lake and are very good s’mores cooks. We walked the woods, the lake fishing piers and the San Gabriel River walk in the city of Lake Georgetown. One is an avid photographer, another is as a talented actor for videos and another is a remarkable ghost story-teller. We were held close to the campfire with the scary tales!
We stayed at the Corps of Engineers managed Jim Hogg RV Park at Lake Georgetown, which just north of the city of Lake Georgetown. It was a busy place on week-ends but during the week it was quiet and serene. We took our strolls when the weather permitted. However, it was colder and rainier than we had expected. We were surprise when a group of extreme “Dry Campers” took the spot next us on a cold winter week-end.
Jim Hogg Park is about 30 minutes from where our family lives, but Austin is limited on RV Parks much closer to our destination. We thought the park to be attractive enough to be worth the drive and with our senior pass the discount compensated for the commute. It was a nice family time and it was hard to head westward toward our destination in Arizona.
