May 17, 2010 - Fredericksburg, TX

We left San Antonio at 9 am and arrived in Fredericksburg at 10:45. We had visited there two years ago and wanted to come back again. Fredericksburg was settled by German immigrants led by John O. Meusebach in 1846. Within a year he had made a lasting peace treaty with the Comanches. Many of the buildings still in Fredericksburg date from that time. The town has a distinctive German atmosphere with bierhauses and great German food. We had forgotten about the Sunday houses. Farmers and ranchers lived so far out of town that it was a big deal...

West Trip 2010

May 16, 2010 - Sunday, May 16, Fredricksburg, TX

Traveling day. Left Denton, TX about 7:45 & it was 68 degrees and humid. Just a few drops of rain all day as we made our way to Fredericksburg (Hill Country) in TX. Arrived here about 3 p.m. and a very nice campground called Fredericksburg RV Park. $60 for 2 nights with GS discount. Also free ice.......we liked that a lot. Rained tonight after Dick got done wiping down the RV and truck..........never fails!!

May 1, 2010 - Cleaning up at Texas State

What a great shoot. The stages were interesting and fast with no procedural traps. I actually shot slower than I usually do in order to be sure that I hit every target. I only had one problem on a reload when I couldn't seem to get the reload round into the rifle. Cost me about 5 seconds, but I still ended up with a decent time. most of my times were around 30 seconds or a little less, but that was fast enough. I also had a clean match, which turned out to be the difference. This was a total time match, and i won first place by less than 5...

Apr 30, 2010 - Setting up and enjoying Texas State

The Texican Rangers, a club that I shoot with in Fredericksburg, was awarded the privilege to hold the Texas State Championship match at their range at the Adolph Stieler ranch south of Fredericksburg. I convinced Glenn jordan to join me again in attending this shoot. This time he and i each brought our own campers. Between the Winter Range shoot and now, Susan and I had decided that it made more sense for me to have a little camper that I could take on these shoots and park on the range rather than trying to take the RV. So Glenn and I...

Apr 23, 2010 - Wow.. Who woulda' known?

town, stopping at Walmart for some Velcro to finish a project I had been working on.. One thing that many of us RV’ers really dislike is having to keep the front door closed either when the A/C is on or when it is cold and the heat is running. It makes everything so dark inside. Lots of our friends have cut down plexiglass to fit inside but I wanted to do something different… I decided to use vinyl and valcro it on the door so we could remove it when we wanted fresh air. After some trial and error, I found some cute little vinyl that had...

Apr 22, 2010 - Stay at home kind of day

We were really looking forward to seeing more of the Texas Hill Country today but I never even left the house ( Bill went out for some fresh air but I only opened the door and breathed in)… It wasn’t the most perfect weather day anyway and Bill had a beastly headache so we decided it was a good day for me to get caught up on the things that I have been putting off for way too long. While I was doing 7 loads of laundry I was also finishing my updates to my new computer… The best time I had was when I transferred my music from the I pod and...

Apr 21, 2010 - More sight-seeing

I finally have my new computer up and running again. Remember a while back when I had the window open and company coming for dinner? The rain came in and landed right on my keyboard and I was having too much fun to notice it. Well I was able to use it for quite awhile by adding an external keyboard but lately I was getting a lot of extra things added as I typed. I was warned about this when everything got all wet because eventually the water sitting on the bottom starts rusting whatever is inside the laptop. When the odd things started...

Apr 20, 2010 - Fredericksburg

Hello again, We have moved to Fredericksburg for a week before heading to Dallas. We are at the peak season of the Texas Wildflowers and they are incredidable. I bought a new computer and do not have everything uploaded yet so I will just put some awesome pictures up that we have seen in our outings the last two days. Fredericksburg is very crowded at this time of the year and you will see why when you look at teh pictures but in spite of all the people, we managed to run into the Wagon Masters from our MOC rally in Kerrville last month....

Apr 17, 2010 - Hill Country of Texas

Vacation 2010-2 April 14, 2010 It is cloudy today as we begin to head west toward the Hill Country. After stopping at Flying J at San Antonio, TX we began to get into some rolling hills which is the beginning of the Texas Hill Country. As we motored along we saw not only cattle but also sheep and goat herds along the road. We arrived at Oakwood RV Resort. It is old but well kept. The sights are narrow as when one puts out a slide it hangs about a foot over into the next sites patio. Just as we got settled in it started to rain. April...

Apr 10, 2010 - ENCHANTED ROCK

While in a shop on Frederickersburg, a shop owner suggested we drive about 20 miles north of Fredericksburg to Enchanted Rock National Park. So Saturday morning that's just what we did. And boy, were we glad we took her suggestion. A beautiful area! Enchanted Rock State Natural Area consists of 1643.5 acres on Big Sandy Creek, north of Fredericksburg, on the border between Gillespie and Llano Counties. It was acquired by warranty deed in 1978 by the Nature Conservancy of Texas, Inc., from the Moss family. The state acquired it in 1984,...

Apr 10, 2010 - Fredericksburg TX and Wildflowers

Friday Ed had a couple of conference calls so we got a late start to Fredericksburg, about 30 miles west of Johnson City. We had planned to stay there, but all the RV Parks were full. This is Bluebonnet time of the year as well as other wildflowers. Johnson City was as close as we could stay. Fredericksburg was a German settlement and is quite a downtown shopping area, about 3 blocks of Main Street. We spent a couple of hours looking a local shops before going to Wildseed Farms. Wildseed Farms is a very colorful place! As the name...

Apr 9, 2010 - Another Enchanting Day in Central Texas

Today Cousin Lullene Knox from the Huntsville area came by to get me. She had arrived yesterday too late to get together then. We went to Fredericksburg, arriving in time for lunch with other cousins, Dick and Maxie Hoester and their son, Rick. We met them at Dick and Rick's law office and we all rode together in their car to the Peach Tree Restaurant. We had a very nice visit. Lullene and Maxie are first cousins and I am a distant fourth cousin to them. More important to me than the fact that we all are twigs on the same big family tree...
