Jan 4, 2016 - Historic Jacob's Well

On our way to the Bella Vista Ranch Olive Farm on Mt Sharp Road near Wimberley Texas, Click HERE for the Olive Ranch Information. Carolyn and I came across a little gem Jacob's Well, which is the middle of nowhere. Mount Sharp is a peak about 7 miles from Henly Texas and about 10 miles west of Wimberley Texas. This mountain is characterized by hilly terrain with steep slopes. There is a lot of Live Oaks, Mesquite and many different grasses that grow in the area. As we twisted along Jacobs Well Road and Mt Sharp Roads, on our way to the...

Mar 3, 2012 - Wimberley Texas. Oldest Outdoor Flea Market in Texas

March 3 2012 Wimberley Texas Market Days This is the oldest outdoor flea market in the state of Texas and it is the second largest market in Texas. Lots of things to do and purchase here. Today was a warm sunny Texas day and the winds were just hard enough to keep you cool walking around. I took pictures of some of the unique items we came across, but there was so much it was hard to decide which were the best. Plenty of pictures of the flowers and the people. If you are ever in Wimberley Texas on the first Saturday of the month, you...

Mar 6, 2010 - Wimberley Texas

Today Nancy and I along with our friend and campground owner Sherry visited the Wimberley Texas famous Market Days. It is the oldest outdoor market in the Texas Hill Country and the second largest in the state. There are over 475 booths of just about everything you cannot live without. The booths are tucked in and along side of tree-shaded paths, you listen to live music while you walk and shop and everyone is just Texas Friendly. It is really nice watching and listening to local artists sing popular country songs. Nancy did buy one pair of...

May 13, 2009 - Preparations are ready

May 13, 2009 We are packing our RV with the clothes, food, and gear we think we will need for the trip to Canada and Alaska. Given our experience on previous trips, we are trying to be more economical in our packing and take less clothes and stuff. Unfortunately, our trip will entail both hot weather, medium weather and cool weather, so we can’t just pack for one season. Even so, we have a lot more space left on our closet bar than in times past. We had a pretty easy day today packing up and preparing for the trip. By the late afternoon we...

Mar 3, 2009 - That's all for now!

To our Friends, Hopefully this note finds you all in good health and great spirits. The three of us are fine but somewhat tired from the last few days on-the-road. After our departure on February 5th, we traveled to the Everglades National Park. We were 22 days in the park (with a limit of 14 days???). We divided our time between the Flamingo Area with it’s marina and campground, and Long Pine Campground. We both had a great time, it was the perfect "Detoxication" place after Key West; and our bad habits acquired while at Sigsbee (Sunset...

Feb 19, 2009 - Last Day in Wimberley for awhile

February 19. 2009 We are preparing for the trip with lists of things to take, packing clothes and other items. I was putting all the guns and equipment together — the guns I plan to shoot, the back-up guns in case the guns I want to shoot aren’t working right, the long range gun, the holster I plan to use and the back-up holster I need in case the holster I plan to use doesn’t work right. Then I have the ammo that I prepared to use at the shoot and then the ammo that I made in case the ammo I intended to shoot isn’t adequate. (Susan says...

Winter Range 2009

Feb 18, 2009 - Preparing for our trip to Winter Range

February 18, 2009- We are loading up the RV and making plans for our trip to Winter Range SASS National Championship Match. I spent the last few nights loading up ammo in new brass purchased for the match. My guns worked fine in the last match, so I am not planning to open them up for cleaning (that is the advice of my shooting guru Evil Roy, but against the advice of my trainer Calvin n’ Hobbes—hope Roy is right) We should have plenty of time to get to the match—we are leaving 4 days before the start of the match so we can get to the...

Winter Range 2009

Oct 5, 2008 - Final matches, awards ceremony, and then back home

October 5, 2008 We shot 4 stages today. I finally switched back to my 1866 rifle. It is not my fastest rifle because it is heavier and harder to lever, but it is reliable. Today I shot the way I should shoot, with one stage at 24 seconds and a couple others under 30 seconds. If I had shot like that on all the stages, then I would have had a much better chance as winning. As Evil Roy says, you don’t win on your best stages, you win depending on how you do on your worst stages. I had a couple of really bad ones. As expected, I didn’t win my...

Aug 16, 2008 - A long flight home with a brief interlude in Denver

Time to head home. Our flight is at 1:55, but we decided to get to the airport early since we have the guns to transport. We packed up our trusty Chevy Equinox and said goodbye to our pleasant Larkspur Landing.We found the airport with little difficulty and turned into the Hertz location to check in our car. Boy did we get an education on long term rentals with Hertz in Seattle. First, the Seattle Hertz location charges a $5.00 fee per day because we picked the car up at the airport. When you rent for 17 days, that is $85. Wow. Then we...

Jul 29, 2008 - Getting ready to go

July 29, 2008 Susan and I are setting out on another adventure, returning to the Northwest, Washington state, and Western Canada. This time we are flying to Seattle on Southwest Airlines. We will spend time in Seattle, then take in the Olympic peninsula west of Seattle, the San Juan islands, Victoria B.C., Vancouver, Lake Louise and Banff, then return to Seattle, perhaps via Couer D’Alene and Spokane. As usual, we are last minute packing late into the early morning hours the night before we leave. We have given ourselves a little window,...
