UConn fans before the game


Houston, Texas is the home of our sons, Andy and Billy, also home of Reliant Stadium, where UConn won the Men's National Championship in Basketball in 2011. When UConn won their regional and went to the Final Four in in Houston in 2011, Andy HAD to attend, and UConn won! When UConn went to the Final Four in 2014, Andy and Billy both went to Arlington to see it, and UConn won again!

The great state of Texas also hosted the 2010 Women's National Championship won by UConn (San Antonio), the 2004 Men's NCAA won by UConn (San Antonio) and the 2002 Women's NCAA won by UConn (San Antonio). We think Texas is lucky. Needless to say, we love Texas!

We will spend a few days with Andy and Billy and catch up on what they have been doing. While we are here we will hit our favorite BBQ and Tex-Mex restaurants, and watch a basketball and the Superbowl. The UConn men are here and will play the University of Houston on Sunday afternoon. Andy got tickets for all of us, so we will spend the afternoon at the basketball game and the evening watching football.

On Sunday the temperature hit an unbelievable 78 degrees. We broke out the shorts!

We got a flat on the camper about 10 miles from our campground, on one of the Houston beltway freeways. This is our first road incident with the camper, so I cannot complain. After we called roadside service and got the spare put on, I got a replacement tire, and then had it put on the camper on Monday before we hit the road. Make sure you check and maintain those spare tires!
