Wednesday August 24, 2016-Moving Day-Ron Hoover RV to Sandy Creek Campground, Jasper TX

We were able to sleep in for a bit at the Ron Hoover lot because we didn't have any more work to be done, so we slept until after 7am. nice...

We had all forgotten about getting both the truck and trailer inspected for the safety inspection that is required by the state in order to renew our license plates so I went over to speak to AJ about having it done. He even sent his inspector over to us in the parking lot where he knocked it out in short order and we were finally on our way.

It is only about 160 miles from Katy to Jasper, so we made good time. We only had to make two comfort tops for Stella and pulled in here about 2pm. David, Bill and Jim were already here, and we actually followed Jim into the park, which made our drive in very easy. Actually Bill and Jim had arrived just shortly before we did, so we were all hot and sweaty and just got together for a short visit before retiring to our trailers for a nap and a break, and got together later in the afternoon to visit.

 This is our site. As you can see, we are surrounded by huge pine trees giving us some good shade, something we have  not had for awhile.

We have a very nice view of the Steinhagen lake. Back in the old days, this park was called Dam B but somehow this name was dropped.

We had a big 'ol cloud come up this afternoon, cooling things off with a good rain storm. A welcome relief from the heat!

I saw this little fellow swimming by this morning. I am told that he come by in the morning and goes back across in the evening. I'm not much of a gator guy but he looks to be about 8 feet long. I don't plan to find out.

I'll have more soon.

So long.
