Sep 1, 2016 - Lampasas, TX - The last stop

We headed to Lampasas under cloudy skies and by the time we got to the south part of the Abilene it was raining. We had rain off and on for a good part of the drive to Lampasas. But Lampasas was dry with threatening clouds. This stop is only 35 miles from home and we’re staying here to get organized for our return home and most importantly to get to the house early in the morning to unload the RV before the heat of the day. It may be close to fall on the calendar, but here in central Texas we won’t see cool temperatures until November. But...

May 21, 2015 - Cen-Tex Campout at Lampasas

THURSDAY This morning I left Crestview RV about ten o’clock and had an easy drive to Lampasas. The weather stayed cool today because of all the rain in the area last night. Coco Davenport and Val White hosted the rally. The very artistic Coco made some delicious cookies and put them inside clear, colorless plastic boxes on a bed of confetti and finished the package with pretty handmade bows. Val served chips inside the brims of sombreros, along with various dips. She also gave us “diplomas” of a funny item about how things were when we...

May 16, 2013 - Cen-Tex Campout at Lampasas

THURSDAY This morning I headed first to Georgetown to Don Hewlett Chevrolet to have Daisy’s annual state safety inspection done. Unfortunately, she didn’t pass because of three relatively minor things: One rear clearance light was burned out, one front clearance light was missing its cover and the wiper blades needed to be replaced. The technician told me to take care of these things and return later. Then they would finish the inspection, including the emissions test. I decided to test my luck and drive a few miles up the road to Crestview...

May 17, 2012 - Cen-Tex Campout at Lampasas

THURSDAY This morning I left the Galveston Island State Park campground about a quarter to 9:00 because I had a long drive ahead of me. I made only brief stops and it still took about seven hours to drive to Lampasas for the Cen-Tex campout. I was more than ready to stop! We had our usual bountiful potluck dinner tonight. We had two visitors, both from the Austin area. I hope they will decide to join us. Our hosts this time were Coco Davenport and Val White. Coco provided the table decorations: herbs in small pots wrapped with blue and red...

May 19, 2011 - Cen-Tex Campout at Lampasas

THURSDAY This morning I had to get up very early so I could have Daisy's annual inspection done. This time I went to Don Hewlett Chevrolet in Georgetown, which Val has used for several years. Since she has been pleased with their service on her motorhome, I assumed that I would be, too. I arrived there at 8:00 but had to wait for about 2 1/2 hours. That is my only complaint. Then I headed to Lampasas for the Cen-Tex LoW campout. This would be a very busy week end for me because, in addition to my regular duties as club secretary, I had to...

May 20, 2010 - Cen-Tex LoW Campout - Lampasas

THURSDAY This morning I had a couple of errands to run before heading to Lampasas for our Cen-Tex LoW Campout. On the way out, I stopped at the park office to tell them about a dead squirrel in the site next to mine. The stench was horrific! Bob, one of the backup park managers, said that he would take care of it. First, I went to Factory Mattress Sales to pick up my new mattress. I hope it will give my back better support. It appears to be a good one. Then, I went to the Salvation Army donation center to drop off the foam mattress and pad,...

Oct 14, 2009 - Reunion #2

A good visit with another long time friend - Wednesday, October 14 We checked out of our soggy campground at Whitney and headed south again. Today our destination is Lampasas, a town that is ‘Deep in the Heart of Texas’. Lampasas sits on Highway 281, a north/south highway that pretty much bisects this big state from Wichita Falls all the way down to Brownsville. It’s a good road that bypasses Waco and cuts through the beautiful Texas ‘hill country’. This is the land of the Chisholm Trail and the great 19th century cattle drives. Range...

Oct 27, 2008 - Back in Lampasas

Well we arrived back today from our weekend. We had a good time even though the weather did not cooperate, each day we were up early, out on the field but the wind was also there, so 3 days up and ready, 3 days early to breakfast. We had a great time visiting with Steve(our pilot)and his wife Jodi, and some other friends that we met in Albuquerque. We were also able to visit with Glenn and his girlfriend Lisa and her son Colton. We left Sunday after breakfast, stopped by and saw Glenn again and then headed back, we decided not to do it...

May 16, 2008 - Cen-Tex LoW Campout – Lampasas

FRIDAY This morning I headed for Lampasas for the Cen-Tex LoW campout at Boone RV Park. The drive was only 87 miles and the weather was comfortable. Because the temperature was so pleasant, we sat outside under the beautiful large pecan trees for quite a while. We had 17 rigs this time, which is about average for our club. Our visitor, Tom, decided to join the club. This was his second campout with us. Of course, we miss Regina very much. At our business meeting this afternoon we agreed that we will donate a tree in her memory at our...

Nov 29, 2007 - Movin' On to Lampasas, TX

Thursday, November 29, I stayed up until 1:00 a.m. working on four Thanksgiving journal pages and finishing the last pages of Thoreau. We got up on this 35-degree, sunny morning and had plenty of time to pack up. But then everything started going haywire. The water heater wouldn't light so we had no hot water for showers. I did the breakfast dishes with a tub of water that I heated in the microwave. As I opened the big day/night shade by the table so we would have a view while we ate breakfast, the cord on the blind broke. That's never a...

May 19, 2005 - Cen-Tex LoW Campout - Boone RV Park

This was a good campout. One of the highlights was a visit to the home of Merritt Roman to see his extensive collection of rocks and minerals which he houses in a special building. They were artistically displayed and well labeled. I really enjoyed them.

May 20, 2004 - Cen-Tex LoW Campout - Boone RV Park

The weather was ideal for our campout this week end. Some of the members played golf at the nearby public golf course. They didn’t talk about their scores! We sat outside under the trees a lot to take advantage of the nice breeze. One night John Cuthbertson brought his karaoke machine in to provide music for dancing.
