Nov 22, 2014 - Texas Hill Country Trip - Day 7 Last day

November 14, 2014 (Friday) – Day 7 Today we drove up to Wimberley. I had heard of the town but never been there. I loved the downtown area. They had a lot of older buildings and shops. I would like to go back there sometime and spend more time there. We didn’t spend much time in Wimberley because mama wanted to go to the town of Buda. She had known some people who use to live there. There was not much there but mama wanted to spend some time there. We went into a little store, then the doughnut shop. We were killing time until some of the...

January 10 2011 Lockhart Texas The rain came yesterday and today is a sun shining Texas Day so we decided to take a short trip to Lockhart Texas. To read more about the city please click here You can also visit another Lockhart web site by clicking here or visit their Facebook page by clicking here They say this is the Barbecue Capital of Texas. I cannot verify that as we go elsewhere for our great Texas BBQ. There are 4 BBQ Restaurants in Lockhart and these restaurants estimate that about 5,000 people visit their restaurants each week....

Jun 12, 2010 - Lockhart, TX

You probably read or heard about the floods in New Braunfels, TX that actually washed away an RV. We were very fortunate - driving from Boerne to Lockhart the next day we skirted around New Braunfels but didn't see any of the damage. We stayed in Lockhart State Park which is one of the nicest state parks that we have seen, complete with a 9 hole golf course, huge swimming pool and full hookups. Lockhart is billed as the Bar BQ Capital of Texas, halfway between San Antonio and Austin and home of four of the best restaurants in Texas. We were...

Apr 1, 2010 - the triple bypass tour

We're on the way to the Bluebonnet Festival in the Hill Country, but after a long, long three hour drive, it was time to stop. We'd read about a state park that has a golf course and a scenic bike ride near here, but it looked thickly forested - not good for the satellite dish reception. And after our last adventure picking up the mail, it seemed better to stay in a commercial campground where the mail could be forwarded. We could drive to the state park from there. Once we got here, I realized I had heard about this town before. We are in...

Nov 18, 2008 - Austin/San Antonio

We camped in Lockhart, Texas because it was between Austin and San Antonio and we wanted to explore both cities. Unknown to us, Lockhart claims to have the best BBQ in Texas and we decided we couldn’t stay there without trying some of it. Perhaps our expectations were too high, or we don’t appreciate true Texas BBQ, but the meat seemed dry and lacking in the flavor we expected. The state park was nice, with a golf course where you can play 9 holes for $8. (We aren’t golfing on this trip.) We also visited McKinney Falls St. Park which is...

Sep 28, 2008 - Second Day of TSRA--Did I lose? No, I won my category!

September 28, 2008 We finished up with 4 stages today by about 11:30, then they had some side matches while they put the scores together. I had no idea how I was doing because they had not posted scores. I shot the rest of the 4 stages clean, but I made a sequence mistake on the 1st stage of the day that cost me 10 seconds and a clean match. So no misses, but a procedural penalty counts like a miss for the clean stage issue. At the awards ceremony I was surprised when they announced the top 3 Classic Cowboys and I wasn’t even on the list. I...

Sep 27, 2008 - First Day of Shooting in the Texas State Rifle Association state match

September 27, 2008 Turns out that we decided to stay in Wimberley for the weekend (I had played golf on Thursday at Palmer Lakeside near Lake LBJ and afterward I went by the SRB house and checked on everything.) So that left me free to go to the Texas State Rifle Association State Match on Saturday and Sunday in Lockhart. This match is not a SASS match, but it plays by SASS rules. We managed to get 4 Classic Cowboys so we could make up a Classic Cowboy class. The match is set at Agarita Ranch, the Plum Creek Carriage and Shooting Society’s...

Jun 2, 2007 - Battle of Plum Creek at Agarita Ranch

June 2, 2007- Battling the Comanche with Wild Duke at Plum Creek Got up early to go to the Agarita Ranch in Lockhart to be part of the Battle of Plum Creek, a two-day shoot held at the surprisingly detailed Agarita ranch setup. I was meeting Duke Weidmann, who, along with his wife Monica, had attended a portion of the Green Mountain Regulators shoot in Marble Falls last week. Duke was ready to start shooting. He and Monica came about the time I had my cart set up, and we took a look at his contribution to the guncart—a gold plated, finely...

Jan 21, 2001 - 1999 September 11 - Caldwell County - Noah's Land

Today I went to Noah’s Land Wildlife Park in Caldwell County to see their three new Bengali tiger cubs. I had seen a picture and article about them in the “Austin American Statesman” a few days ago. They are about three weeks old now. I was able to hold the female, Sasha, and have my picture taken with her. Their names are Tijar, King Midas and Sasha. The males, Tijar and King Midas, are different from Sasha, who has the characteristic orange coat with dark stripes. The males’ coats are lighter and their stripes much less distinctive....
