Nov 3, 2017 - Waco to Choke Canyon

We were anxious to get started this morning and left Lake Waco behind at 8:00 AM. I followed Bob but he made it through several red lights that we had to wait until they changed to green. By the time we reached I-35 south, Bob was nowhere to be seen. Marilyn and Janet stayed in touch by texting and we were sure Bob must be miles ahead of us by that time. He remained out of sight as we tried to catch up. After some time we asked what exit he was going by and he texted back that it was one we had already passed. We don’t know how it happened...

Aug 2, 2015 - Held Up At Choke Canyon

We finally made it out of Mission last Monday - this time with the RV. Our first stop was just 182 miles up 281 to Choke Canyon State Park, outside of Three Rivers.

We both then headed back to the site and easily backed in. We were just...

Shortly after getting onto the 281 North we came upon a Border Patrol station. The board showed 97,559 lbs of illegal drugs confiscated and 19,425 illegal aliens apprended,...

Living our RV Dream!

Nov 13, 2006 - Three Rivers

This morning Stuart, Regina, Bruce and Ethel all headed home early. Later Ann and I caravanned to Three Rivers to spend the night at Choke Canyon RV Park. I called the two RV parks on Barton Springs Road in Austin to see whether either of them had a monthly space available. They didn't; so I called the Berry Springs RV Park in Georgetown to see if they had one. They had only one left so I reserved it for one month. I was very glad that I had called today. After dinner Ann and I drove back into town to see the movie, "The Hidden Clause". We...
