Monday February 22, 2010-Moving Day, Mission to New Braunfels Tx

We woke pretty early this morning and made our coffee. Bob had told me that he would come down for coffee again this morning. He had knocked on the door at 7:30 yesterday with his cup in hand, and we had a nice morning sitting around and drinking coffee in the warm early morning. Today it was a cool 60 degrees and foggy when I went out at 7:15 but the fog soon burned off and the morning warmed up. Bob didn't come down until almost 8, so we didn't have much of a visit this morning.

I had already taken the porch down last night, so the only thing I had to do outside was the utilities and the Dish. I worked steadily but was stopped a few times when our neighbors stopped by to say goodbye. This is a very friendly park! Everything came down pretty easily but Stella had a lot to do inside today. We finally got through and left the site about 11:20. By the time we stopped by the office to turn in our electronic gate opener and paid for our electric use, it was about 11:45 when we pulled out the gate. My friend Lenny had told me about the Pueblo Tire Service to check my tires, so we stopped in. It only took a few minutes to have the tires topped off, and we were on our way.

We stopped in George West at the Country Store to pick up a snack to eat and again at a rest stop for a break and to transfer some fuel. We like being able to stop when we want to so that we can stretch our legs and still make good time. We pulled into the Hill Country RV Park a little before 5 and got all checked in. Wow, this place has changed a lot since we last stayed here! We left our trailer here when my Dad was sick back in about 1995 or 1996 and it was only one pretty good sized park. Now there are two separate parks that are run by one office. I suppose they added the second location when they outgrew the old park. It's not a bad park but some things need improvement. Someone had run over the water pipe, so it is leaning; the concrete patio has been broken, and the site is actually more gravel than concrete. We've been in worse, but we've certainly been in better, much better.

We went out to eat supper because Stella didn't feel like fixing anything. We needed to get out anyway to buy a new coffee pot. Our old one had finally stopped working, so we needed to get a new one. I finally convinced Stella to buy a bigger coffee urn that makes 40 cups. We frequently serve coffee for our friends, so now we have a big enough pot for everyone. When its only Stella and I, we can make a half pot or even less.

Today was a nice trip and we had a good day of traveling. I hope our upcoming travel days go as well.

So long.
