Apr 25, 2016 - Guadalupe River. The North Fork

The Guadalupe is a major recreational water source in the Texas Hill Country. Many of the floods and Hill Country Destruction is caused by this river. Last year Carolyn Sanders and I took a ride to the South Fork of the Guadalupe. This week we made it to the North Fork. The ride up out of Hunt Texas, was a typical, beautiful Hill Country. Earlier this year this little river was flowing pretty fast. It caused flooding in all the areas. Here at Rio Raft it covered the 4th crossing bridge and was climbing the banks. No worry here as we are on...

Apr 25, 2016 - Comfort Texas A nice place to visit.

As we returned from our trip the North Fork of the Guadalupe River, we stopped in the town of Comfort Texas for a bite to eat. Comfort is the home of High’s Cafe, which is one of the places patronized by the local population. The soup of the day and sandwiches and good glass of wine, hit the spot and provided a nice break from the drive to the Guadalupe. The photos show all small and comfortable the town is. Just a relaxing day and then a stroll around Comfort, before we drove the final lap back to Canyon Lake. I took pictures of the more...

Oct 19, 2011 - Texas Oasis

Texas Oasis What a wonderful and restful haven the Guadalupe River RV Resort is after our run from northern Wisconsin that started two weeks, six states, and 1500 miles ago. The river is spring fed and has remarkable clarity as it runs over limestone and sandy bottom. That is why it has the green/blue color. Wildlife is plentiful in the park along the river and amongst the towering cypress trees. Nancy has been getting in some quality reading time, other than maps, and catching up on her beading under the shade of the magnificent trees....

Oct 15, 2011 - Death Drive

Death Drive Oh my gosh! We had a nice drive from Austin to Kerrville along US 290. Our plan was to meet up with a childhood friend that we became reacquainted with at the class reunion. John Cahak and his wife Tracie have a ranch outside of Hunt, Texas. Since the four of us shared a few meals back in the Northwoods we have planned on some time at their ranch. Their real lives occur in Waco, where they both are still very busy in their professional careers. Their retirement plans include hanging at their ranch part of the year and near...

Apr 24, 2008 - A Day to Cross Texas

We left Portland, Texas, at 5am for our week-long trip up to the Black Hills of South Dakota, across South Dakota to Webster, and home again. Everyone was asleep for the first few hours of our drive, so I just drove right on up and through San Antonio. I stopped in Kerrville so we could fill up. I stopped at the H-E-B, and while I was getting gas, Elias decided he needed to use the restroom. I sent him into the H-E-B, and I told him I'd pick him up in front of the store. After I finished filling up, I continued from the gas pumps into the...
