Mar 19, 2009 - Finally, 1st of 2 reasons for whole trip-Killeen

Finally, we've made it to Killeen/Ft Hood for our visit with Paul. Liz had already arrived from PDX when we arrived and shortly after Paul picked up brother Tom at the airport, too, in his cute, yellow&little VW The Thing. We parked the trailer for the night in the street and we all packed the Durango and headed to the Texas (yes that +'s loud&smoky) Roadhouse Grill...good meal though + Tom paid :) Brother Tom made a one-night stop to join us between his client in Houston and Spring Break (family flew down from Boston) in Florida!!

Jun 2, 2007 - Texas

We arrived in Texas on May 23rd and it has rained everyday since!! and I don't mean sprinkled. I believe we recieved 10 to 12 inches in the last 9 days. We also had a tornado touch down on the air base at Ft Hood, about a mile from us. See the photo's of the lake at flood stage! Belton Lake is at least 30 miles long, so this level of flood represents a lot of water. The good news is we picked up our grandson Brandon, and we are about 100 miles from being out of Texas. We will be in Taos New Mexico from the 4th of June untill the 10th. We...
