We made a very long and uninteresting drive from Durant to Boerne with a stop-off in McKinney for me to grab a whole bunch of Munzees. About 4000 to be more precise.
The drive itself went well with no issues on the trip. We stayed in a dumpy little park called the Lighthouse RV Park in Melissa. It was pouring down rain when we arrived and due to lots of road construction in the area, we had a hard time finding the park and then it was an absolute mud hole when we got into a site. I guess I can't blame the weather for this, but the park is pretty seedy.
We changed our route at the last minute-literally- because of road construction in and around Austin. The route we took was out of the way but there was little traffic. It took us almost 8 hours to arrive here in Boerne, but no problems occurred. We did pass another fifth wheel being pulled down the road on the shoulder with a flat tire. Had they been pulled over and stopped I would have stopped to see if I could help, but he had ruined the tire already and probably damaged the wheel, but he continued on toward the next town. Maybe he lived there.
When we arrived, there were 8 other Heartlanders already here. We were tired and just wanted to get set up and rest up. We did visit with our friends for a short time but I was soon in my recliner, recovering from the drive. We'll spend more time with them tomorrow and during the rally.
