Friday September 17, 2010-Lake Tonkawa RV Park

We woke this morning, still upbeat about the possibility of a new truck. I was somewhat disappointed when we didn't hear from Greg early in the morning, but he had told us that he was very involved in being a coach for his son, so I figured he might have gotten tied up with something for the football team. He finally called but it was after eleven in the morning and the news wasn't good at all. He said he couldn't get a very good interest rate and would need a signed buyer order before he could have the truck transferred. I wasn't willing to sign anything until we had a firm deal, and wasn't about to get caught in a squeeze, so we declined the deal. I really figured that he would call and say he found some good interest money, but he didn't so we went about our business. We decided to go back to Nacogdoches to look at another RV park for future trips up here. We found one that was decent, the Paradise Lake Resort, and made a note of it for reference. Since it was so late in the day, there wasn't time to leave and get to Palacios at a decent time, so we just extended our stay by one more day.

We returned home and hung out until later in the afternoon when I went outside and took down the porch and a few other things in preparation for leaving in the morning. Stella worked on the inside, so we made good progress for our departure. Our neighbors, Don and Chris came by and asked us to sit outside with them later in the evening. They bought a Bighorn model 3385 about four months ago, so we had lots to talk about. I think I gave them some good information and also a contact card from the Heartland Owner's club. They said they will join the forum and possibly the owner's club also. We exchanged cards so that we can stay in touch in the future.

So long.
