Nov 9, 2014 - OKC to Temple, TX

11-9-14 Oklahoma City, OK to Temple, TX Got up at a fair hour for a change, was 7:30 when I went to the absolutely new, clean KOA shower and had a wonderful time. Simple pleasures mean a lot. I told Julie the night before that I would like to be on the road by 9AM to make the daily goal before sundown. She served our breakfast, got a shower, and was ready to move by 8:58AM. Not bad! We got fuel and were on the road south by 9:15AM. The weather was perfect, most of the roads were in good shape. It is a straight line south of OKC to Dallas...

May 13, 2013 - Lake Belton

We left Georgetown and headed north toward Dallas to meet up with Jacquelyn and Ed Williams of Gunter, Tx. But we had dental appointments in Temple so we spent the night at Lake Belton. Glad we did- sure beats a Walmart parking lot. During happy hour some deer can by to say hello.

Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park is a United States National Historical Park in central Texas about 50 miles west of Austin in the Texas Hill Country. The park protects the birthplace, home, ranch and final resting place of Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States. During Johnson's Administration, the LBJ Ranch house was known as the Texas White House. Spent a week at my sister Carol's house. Enjoyed the time spent with them all.

Land's RV Trip

Oct 15, 2011 - Travel to Temple, TX

We left the N. Llano River RV Park in Junction and headed north on US Hwy 377. We passed through several small towns, e.g. Mason and Brady, taking photos along the way. It seems that there is a BBQ restaurant on every corner in Texas! The smell of cooking BBQ often filled the air. The topography changed off and on from rocky grounds full of prickly pear cactus to pastures with sheep, goats, horses, and cattle. We also saw pecan groves and some irrigated pastureland that actually had green grass! Texas has suffered from high heat and drought...

Mar 2, 2011 - Visit in Temple with Maxine Lisenbe and Betty Wendler

This morning Val, Ann and I headed for Temple to see two of our Cen-Tex LoW friends, Maxine Lisenbe and Betty Wendler at Maxine's house. Betty had driven in from nearby Holland. She and Maxine have been unable to attend our campouts for quite some time due to health issues. We have really missed them. Maxine had made some wonderful soup and biscuits. Val had made a nice cake. On the way out of town we had stopped at H-E-B so Ann and I could get bread and drinks for the meal. And what a nice meal it was! After lunch we played several games...

Nov 18, 2010 - Ready To Travel

Thursday, November 18, 2010--Cedar Ridge Campground-Temple Texas Thanksgiving is coming!! For years we have ordered a pre-cooked Thanksgiving dinner from a local grocery store. When working, as a tradition, we always went camping over the Thanksgiving weekend, and still had a traditional dinner. This usually allows us to have a four day weekend of camping. Big deal huh? Four days. Now, we are thankful that we get to camp every day!!! Last year, and again this morning, we ordered a dinner from HEB Supermarkets here in Texas. We will have a...

Nov 15, 2010 - Short Update

Saturday, November 13, 2010--Cedar Ridge Campground--Temple, Texas A few updates: I guess every cloud does have a silver lining. Before we left East Fork yesterday, Debbie was talking to the host there about the lady that had the camper fire. He said that she is actually excited now that the fire is over. She was having a lot of trouble with that unit, but could not afford to trade it or otherwise get rid of it. She was in too deep with financing. Now with the total loss, there is enough insurance money to allow her to get another unit. So...

Nov 12, 2010 - Our Last Stop

Friday, November 12, 2010--Cedar Ridge Campground--Temple Texas As I suspected would happen, the two dogs have now learned to play with each other. Maggie, the Basset, and Peanut, the Chihuahua, play “chase me” and run up and down the length of the camper. Peanut runs past Maggie and bites her feet. Peanut can also run UNDER Maggie. When a dog is low enough to run under a Basset that is low!!! LOL Peanut has no problem playing with a dog that is at least eight times his size. It is good to see that they are becoming friends. The other...

Apr 8, 2008 - To Temple

This morning I was up and at 'em earlier than usual because I wanted to get my last-minute chores done in time to leave for Temple right after lunch. While unhooking from the utilities, I was stung several times by fire ants. How I hate those things! Their stings are very painful. My timing was very good. I was on the road by 1:05. On the way I stopped in Belton to get propane and to feed Daisy. The next stop was at Don Ringler Toyota in Temple to drop Sweet Pea off to have them determine why the CHECK engine light was on. Scott said that...

Mar 15, 2008 - Thoughts On Leaving Harlingen

It was with mixed emotions we left Harlingen Texas, our Winter home for 6 weeks. We stayed busy right up to the day we left for Dallas to see Pete and family. A few things we HAD to do before leaving: visit Mexico one more time! We did, and had a ball. We met some other RVers from our camp over there and we purchased a WONDERFUL pig chimnea/grill! We had lunch and of course, Margaritas and Pina Coladas! They make the very best! We picked up a few more souvenirs for family and friends before heading back across the border one last time. On...

Jun 7, 2007 - Now we are really going, but bonehead moves all day

The plan made sense—spend the morning doing last minute packing and get off about 2:00 pm, getting through Austin before rush hour and ending up in Waco—well down the road toward our Wichita Falls destination. In general, it worked—we did spend the morning and early afternoon packing, we ran to Arby's for lunch (Susan and I, Jen and Matt, and Dutch). We packed until about 2:15, then we started getting serious about leaving. I think we got more stuff cleaned up in our house in the last 2 days than we had cleaned up or organized in the last...

Feb 14, 2007 - Registration Saga and RV Maintenance in Temple

My new registration sticker still has not arrived so I called the Williamson County Tax Office. The woman checked the status and informed me that the envelope had been returned to them. I couldn't believe it! How difficult would it have been for the Postmaster to have written down the street address when I spoke with him and to have given it to the mail carrier? The tax office employee typed up another envelope, this time making sure the street address was on it. All I could do was just hope that a highway patrolman wouldn't stop me on my...
