Nov 25, 2011 - Time in Texas

From Fredericksburg, on November 22, we drove to Thousand Trails at Lake Medina, where we've been many times. We arrived on Monday and quickly got settled, because we were leaving on Tuesday. We packed the car full and headed to Hurst to spend Thanksgiving with our son and his family. We all found it strange for us to be there without the motor home. I kept thinking I'd run out to the motor home and get something and then remember it wasn't parked on the curb. Our grandson graciously gave us his room and slept on the sofa. Janet and I...

Mar 15, 2011 - Lakehills, TX - Medina Lake Preserve

Tuesday - We arrived in Lakehills and the park is almost full. It is spring break in Texas. We decided to to visit Bandera, TX, Cowboy Capital. Years ago when cowboys were looking for jobs on trail rides, this town is where they congregated to find work. Now there are a lot of shops and cowboy bars to visit and we saw a couple of them. The 11th Street Cowboy Bar is the Littlest Bar in Bandera with its own unique decorating style. You never know if you are going to see a horse hitched outside or a Harley parked on the street. Even though the...

Rojoe 2010-2011

Dec 1, 2010 - Lakehills, TX - TT Medina Lake Preserve

This area of Texas is considered "Hill Country" and there are many panoramic views of the rolling hills and Lake Medina down in the valley. We are camped about a mile from the clubhouse and Lake Medina, but it is a quick bike ride. It is an easy ride down to the lake, but the heart gets a little workout on the way back. There are deer literally everywhere in this park. Some of the campers, like ourselves, buy 50# bags of corn and feed the deer. They have learned our schedule and know that we feed them in the morning and in the evening. The...

Rojoe 2010-2011

Oct 14, 2009 - Medina Lake, Texas

Arrived at our campsite on Medina Lake and the first thing we did was play ‘hunt the lake.’ The lake is used to irrigate the agricultural land in the area and so during dry periods the lake level falls. You can see from the pictures just by how much. It’s a big campground, well spread out amongst low trees with hundreds of deer roaming around. Jo took great pleasure in supplementing their diet with some chocolate chip cookies and crackers. It had a great pool which we had to ourselves most of the time and we really needed it to cool off...

Apr 8, 2009 - Texas Hill Country

This morning we had a leasure start and was on the road around 9 AM and with the 160 or so miles it was an easy day without any truck problems. We were on I-10 westbound for most of the trip and right before San Antonio we had three big trucks each carrying a propeller blade off one of those big wind turbines. I mean those things are HUGE. The last 15-20 feet of each was hanging out over the end of the trailer hauling it and it was bouncing up and down as it traveled down these wonderful Texas roads. OK, the roads are too bad, not yet...

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

Feb 15, 2009 - Medina Lake TT (Pipe Creek, TX)

We are at Medina Lake TT campground. We were here last year also. This park has a very rustic appearance like a federal park but has full hookups. There is lots of wild life here also. I attached a picture of a huge buck that Dan was feeding. The deer here are very tame and will eat out of your hand. They also are very smart. They learn which campers feed them very quickly and begin hanging around the campsite. They also learn which storage area you keep the corn. We like this campground but the area really has nothing to offer. It is about...

Dan & Dee's Travels

Dec 23, 2008 - Lakehills, TX - Medina Lake Resort

Tuesday: It is a drizzly day but the temps are already at 41 as we approach Austin. We got started around 9:30 and we are both still suffering with sore throats and a cold. Last night we said goodbye to new friends, Mario and Sharon from Missouri, with fun conversation, Asti and cheese & crackers. You somehow know that it is not goodbye but just seeya again somewhere on the road. The deer must know they are safe in this preserve because no matter what direction you are looking in, there are deer. We are going to buy some corn and see how...

May 1, 2008 - Medina Lake

We have been staying in a place that they call "hill country" around here, about 30 miles from San Antonio.We're camping at Medina Lake, which is huge. Campground's big too, with lots of deer and jackrabbits running around, which I could personally do without, because I always worry about ticks. (Oh well, I guess that's what bug spray's for). The kids have been enjoying the activities here.They played a game with a group of kids which involved rolling a giant dice for candy, and "stealing" candy from your opponents. James was one of the big...

Mar 15, 2008 - Lakehills, TX - Medina Lake TT

We arrived at Medina Lake Thousand Trails on Sunday March 9th. It is a very nice rustic park that sits right on the lake. We have a nice view of the lake from our front door. They also have lots of wild life. There are many birds, ducks, squirrels, and deer that are very use to the campers being here. Dan bought a bag of feed corn. He threw a few cups of the feed near our campground. Within minutes, there were around 60 deer in the area. There was one young buck that wanted Dan to feed him. He stood within a foot of Dan while Dan was...

We are leaving here on Friday and heading to Arizona, and I wanted to share with you just a few more pictures of the deer and sunsets. I hoped you enjoyed our travels in Texas...we sure have. We are looking forward to our time in Arizona where we plan to meet up with our Georgia friends who are also full-timing, Al and Judy. Happy Trails...

Feb 29, 2008 - Medina Lake

On Monday, 2/25. we travelled through San Antonia and northwest to the small town of Lakehills, located on Medina Lake. We weren't sure what to expect, but we anticipated some great views, small towns, and friendly people. We got all three. This is Texas hill country. The hills in this area are small, more like bumps in the earth, and are covered with Live Oaks, Cedar, and Mesquite. Because the trees are low growing, you can see over the hills, so it's different and unique from what we've experienced in other areas of the country. But as we...

Oct 30, 2007 - Packing up

Tuesday Oct. 30 Today's laundry day again before we leave Lake Medina tomorrow. We've got almost everything packed up and ready to move. There was still time for a few more deer pictures. I get a little carried away with the deer, but you can't see them this close everywhere. Thousand Trails calls their parks "Preserves", you can see why here, probably more than the others.
