Monday: Today we were up early and at Discount Tire when they opened at 8am. We bought our spare tire, stopped to get a few errands, back to campground and on the road at 9:45. We drove 450 miles and finally stopped for the night in Van Horn Tx around 5:30pm. The downside is, they don't have cable and we can't be bothered trying to set up the sat dish for one night.. It sometimes takes us hours and much frustration. Neither one of us up for that. So I popped in a frozen pizza, put in a movie and here we are relaxing. At least they have free wifi and I will check the score of the football game as the night goes on.
We really enjoyed the ride today. The hill country is so pretty. We saw lots of foliage, something we miss in the Houston area. Being from New England we really appreciate the changing color on the trees. After leaving the hill country the contrast to the drive with no trees was really something. I guess you could call the second half of the drive boring but we enjoyed it, having never been this way before. Of course being out in the middle of nowhere can make one anxious as to whether a gas station would pop up in time before running out. We lucked out just in time, although the price was alot higher than we had been paying.
Below I snapped a picture of Buckhorn Lake Resort in Kerrville Tx., this is where we will be spending the first two weeks of March with some of our RV Dreams family of friends. It looks like a great area, very convenient, being right off the highway, and we are really looking forward to it.
