Nov 16, 2010 - Enchanted Rock State Natural Area

After we left the LBJ Ranch we decided to take a chance and see if we could manage to get to the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area before dark. Well, it wasn't quite dark when we arrived but pretty close. It was impossible to get good pictures. The Enchanted Rock itself is a huge, pink granite exfoliation dome, that rises 425 feet above ground, 1825 feet above sea level, and covers 640 acres. It is one of the largest batholiths (underground rock formation uncovered by erosion) in the United States. The Enchanted Rock State Natural Area is...

Nov 6, 2010 - A small respite in Fredericksburg TX

Spent a 1 nighter in Fort Stockton TX at Wally World. Not too bad noise wise and it was free. We moved on to Fredericksburg TX where we will spend 4 days resting and waiting for our spot in Corpus Christi to open up. We are going to totally rest and relax and do tourist things.

Jun 7, 2010 - Fredericksburg, TX

So how did we wind up in Fredericksburg, TX? Easy, I screwed up! While unhooking the car at the RV park in Marathon, we were parked on a slight upgrade and the car was on a slight angle and not straight behind the motor home. The adjustable Blue Ox tow bar didn't want to release so what to do, I muscled up up and, in the process broke a spring inside one of the arms of the tow bar. This is when we pulled in on Saturday and I had a feeling that the tow bar would be unusable. I sent Blue Ox an email and the answer was to not use the tow bar...

May 24, 2010 - Historic Fredericksburg, TX

Dear Friends and Family, We had a wonderful time in Louisiana. We said goodbye to our family in Gonzales and Prairieville and headed for Texas on May 24. We made it to just east of Houston and stayed at the San Jacinto Riverfront RV Park in Highlands, TX. Allen and Sue had stayed there in February and said it was nice. It was. All the sites are pull-through, which makes it easier all around. We took a walk to the river front for a view of the San Jacinto River. Tuesday, May 25th, we drove from Highlands to Fredericksburg, TX. We were amazed...

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...

May 17, 2010 - Monday, May 17 Fredericksburg, TX

Spent 2 nights at the Fredericksberg RV Park for $30 a night (GS rate). Very nice park with easy access in & out. Only about 1/2 mile from the main street but we still drove uptown since it was very humid. Toured the Nemitz Museum today and it was very well done. The new George Bush gallery was also very well done and the grounds were immaculate with the Garden of Peace and all the memorial plaques. We had a nice lunch in a german restaurant and then Dick continued on with a tour of the battlefield while I did some shopping downtown...

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...
