Dec 17, 2018 - New Braunfels, TX

New Braunfels is a new city for us. We have heard a lot about it as a tourist destination for it's German heritage and for the Guadalupe River. Billy and Andy have come here to tube down the river, which is beautiful, and we've read about the German downtown and German restaurants. It should be decorated for Christmas and be pretty. The campground is right on the river and we had to drive about 2 miles on the river road to get here, It was a scenic ride and we went past many tubing, rafting, and fishing guide businesses along the way, so...

Sep 4, 2018 - New Braunfels, TX

Tue, 04 Sep: Continuing west in Texas... Post Labor Day and we're back on the road. We were up and about at a reasonable hour and managed to get our act together sufficiently to prepare for a day of driving. We'd connected the car and performed oil and tire pressure checks yesterday, so that took a few "to-do's" off our list. Bob rolled wheels at 0837 and headed north on TX 146 into Livingston where we turned onto TX 90 west. Our route took us thru town and continuing west along the north shore of Lake Livingston. Ours was a somewhat ziggy...

Mar 23, 2017 - Off to Tend Grandson and Granddogs

Our next stop is just 20 miles up the road in New Braunsfel, TX at Camping World. We are once again back to having trouble with one of the leveling jacks, part of the whole new system we had installed a year ago November to solve our previous issues. The problem started back in Yuma, but no one there could see us for at least 2 weeks. So we made an appointment here in Texas to have the part replaced, as we were flying back to Arcata to stay with our grandson Zane while his parents take off for warm and sunny Nicaragua. We also arranged to...

Jan 9, 2016 - The Historic Riley's Tavern

I have been to Rileys Tavern once before, but they did not have any entertainment going on. Click HERE for the official Facebook page of Rileys. Click HERE for the history of Riley's It is the very first Saloon in Texas after prohibition. Tonight it was much different. The famous Billy Joe Shaver was the feature attraction. Click HERE for Billy Joes website. Billy Joe is the original country music "Honky Tonk Hero." Even if you have never heard his music, I am sure you have seen the bumper stickers that say "If you don't love Jesus, Go to...

Sep 10, 2014 - New Braunfels, TX

NEW BRAUNFELS,TX-9/10—Tried to bring in back slide with bin door open-(not supposed to be done) heard a bang and realized what had happened- went out to check expecting to see the bin door crumbled under the slide but all was good. Other than that we had a good trip over but it was a very long day-on the road six hours. We were about an hour out and the Low Engine Oil light came on so Ned added bit of oil (always has extra), just aggravating because we have appointment for oil change tomorrow. Got into campground Ron and Linda were already...

Apr 5, 2014 - New Braunsfels, Texas

Dick and Janet picked us up today at 11:00 AM today and we headed to New Braunfels and especially to The Alpine Haus for some German food. We read all the reviews from the German restaurants in New Braunsfels and decided that this one sounded like the place to go. It was absolutely the best German food we've had since we were in Germany. Lee and Dick had the Jӓger Schnitzel. I had Weiner Schnitzel and. Janet had Sauerbraten. Everyone was extremely happy. We picked the right place. It was more expensive than what we normally would pay for...

Aug 6, 2013 - Camping World “Adventure”

This morning the RV service technician discovered that my toilet problem was more than just a leak from the hand-wash wand. The toilet case was cracked behind the valve, which meant that a new toilet had to be installed. They ran into all kinds of trouble during the installation process. The toilet seal and piping to the holding tank had been glued instead of bolted. They couldn’t remove it, so they had to cut it off. This meant that new piping had to be installed. The piping was unusual in that it had 60-degree elbows. They made a couple...

Aug 5, 2013 - To Camping World

This morning I drove Daisy to my exercise class so I could leave from there to go to Camping World at New Braunfels. Before heading out, I stopped at the Discount Tire store next door to have the air pressure in my tires checked. The two front ones were down a little but all four rear ones were fine. On the way out of town I called Karen Enterline, of Kyle, to see whether she could meet me somewhere for lunch. I caught her just at the right time. She was coming out of her church, where she had attended a Bible study, and was thinking about...

Dec 12, 2012 - To Camping World

After exercise class I headed to New Braunfels to Camping World to have my air conditioner checked. It has been making a loud noise for some time now and I have been reluctant to use it except on the hottest days. Also, my water heater has been making the water much too hot when it’s on electricity. The service leader said that the air conditioner motor is the culprit and that they will try to get my extended service plan to pay for a new one. They will check the water heater tomorrow. Tonight I’m staying in their parking lot where I at...
