Apr 4, 2019 - Alamo Springs Café

Just south of Fredericksburg, along the small slopes of the serene Texas Hill Country, you’ll find this burger oasis known for some great grub. A place with burgers so good their featured on the cover of magazines. To say Mike Tangman opened Alamo Springs Café in a desolate location would be a bit of an understatement. It’s a very unique place. It’s out in the middle of nowhere kind of between Kerrville, Fredericksburg, Burney, and San Antonio so it’s a neat place to come to. Word of mouth was already gushing in burger lovers to the Alamo...

Jun 4, 2015 - Day 12 June 4 2015 Fort Stockton to Comfort TX

Day 12 June 4 2015 Fort Stockton to Comfort TX I mentioned the wind last night, it finally subsided as the sun came up, but picked up again slightly as we left after breakfast. I did get up and look at the roof to made sure the top was still on, everything was fine. Instead of having home style breakfast we took advantage of the Roadrunner Café in the RV Park. Breakfast was good, and I took a few pieces of left over bacon for the cats sitting outside the front door, waiting for a handout. We had to head into Fort Stockton proper to gas up....

Apr 1, 2011 - Comfort, TX - arrival

Well, the beeping mystery has been solved but the argument about what actually happened continues. Our sleeping duo was once again awoken at 6am by the sound of loud beeping. Neither knew that the clock that has hung on the wall for many years had an alarm function and it got set and that was the source of the beeping. The “discussion” centers on the how. Sharon swears she accidentally pushed a wrong button when she last set the clock a few days ago and that turned on the alarm. Stacy believes Sharon has perpetrated a most elaborate April...

2011 Explorations

Mar 11, 2009 - Comfort, Texas

We found Comfort in Texas (as so many signs and t-shirts proclaim), but it seemed to be closed. Originally, we had planned to take in Austin today. However, the rains came and the cold north wind blew—not a very good day to walk around the capital city of this great state. We dug through the mound of brochures and Comfort caught our eye. Comfort was established in 1854 by “freethinking” German immigrants. Many of these freethinkers had been active in the German Revolution of 1848 and, like so many others escaping religious persecution, came...

Mar 31, 2004 - Day 5 - Comfort

The nearby town of Comfort was my next stop. I had some ice cream in the Soda Shoppe. Comfort was established in 1854 by German immigrants moving further west from New Braunfels. They rested here and were so taken with the place, that they didn't see any need to travel further. Nearly the entire downtown is on the National Register of Historic Places. Many rock buildings and businesses were very well preserved and, therefore, did not have to be restored in order to be placed on the Register.
