Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog

First of all, I want to thank those of you who wrote to us concerning the problem with the fridge. I checked the temp in the fridge first thing this morning and it appears to be working just fine since we repaired the broken wire. Temp inside was 33 degrees. Hey, the temp inside the coach is only 63 this morning. But I am getting ahead of myself.

Yesterday morning we had our coffee first, and then began getting the coach ready to roll. I dumped the holding tanks, put some water and deodorant in the black water tank, took the sewer hose apart and stored it, disconnected the cable tv, disconnected the water hookup, checked with Marilyn to make sure she had the inside done, and then ran the slides in. We then hooked up to the truck, checked the trailer brakes, raised the hydraulic jacks, pulled forward just a couple of feet, stowed all of the blocks, etc, and disconnected the shore power. After stowing the shore power cord and making sure all the compartments were locked we raised the steps, did our walk around and were ready to go. We had some friends, Will & Harriet, and Doug, came by to see if they could help in any way, and to say goodbye one more time. After pulling out into the street, we checked the brakes and the lights, waved so long to our friends, and pulled out of the resort. We had a very nice trip to San Antonio. We took Hwy 83 west to 281 north to I-37 north, Loop 410 west to Hwy 151 west to Military Dr, then a short distance to Ellison Dr, a left turn, and the Admiralty RV resort is on your right hand side. We drove through about 50 miles of rain, but the remainder of the trip was very nice, with wild flowers growing beside the highway, everywhere. We wanted to stop at Three Rivers, on the north side of town, at a place called the Staghorn Restaurant. Great food, reasonable prices, and good service. Going north through town, the Staghorn will be on your left side, and just passed it, there is a large gravel parking area on your left side. We arrived at the resort, and by 4:30 PM, were all set up, had met some new folks, and were ready to drive over to the home of some friends, Rick & Sherry, for dinner. They had a really tasty meal and we left well fed, in fact we were stuffed. I could hardly keep my eyes open and went to bed at 9 PM. The difference in the temperature between here and the valley is remarkable. In the valley, it was warm, actually hot, and humid. Here in San Antonio it is cool and dry.

It was the most stress free travel we have had with our rig. We had a phone call from our good friends, Howard & Linda, while en-route. They said they were also coming to San Antonio and the Admiralty resort. OK, we have some plans ready for them. An oyster bake, the river walk and a trip to the Hill Country. Life is good! In fact it just doesn't get any better than this! God Bless you all. Thanks again for the input about the fridge.
