This morning I left Austin about 8:30, heading for Lake Texoma (Denison, Texas). I had a quick lunch at the I-35W rest stop south of Fort Worth and took advantage of the free WiFi to update my trip journal and check my e-mails.
The site that was assigned to me has not yet been vacated by the outgoing volunteer. He was supposed to have left before I arrived, but that didn’t happen. The man who came around to collect the fees told me that the volunteer’s father is in serious condition with multiple health problems. Maybe that is taking a lot of his time. That site is the only one in the Texas Damsite campground that has full hookups. The others have only electricity and water.
