Sounds like you had a fantastic time and you are all rested up for tomorrow's RV pick-up. I can't imagine pulling that gigantic thing down the road. Will you be helping with the driving when you go traveling? I'd be too afraid!

Oh no...... we live in South Texas..... we are just taking a quick couple of days to get used to it.... Hill Country ! We love it there

We will stay in Texas for the 1st few trips at least I'm sure. longer trips out of state will take some planning. With our schedule - work 6 12's - off 8 -- these quick trips will be wonderful and easy

I love the Hill Country too! Park that thing up at Canyon Lake for a night or two and think of me. I miss the Guadalupe River so much. Natural Bridge Caverns, etc. So excited for you guys!!!!!

GG, glad you found a new ticker for the month of November. I love it! (Oops. We happen to have two "GG's" at the present. I meant Greengeenie.)

No way ! the traffic around Lakewood Church is horrible ! We would not have been able to take it ......parking garages and traffic.

I think Lakewood is the largest church in North America last I heard.

Cheryl, not sure where we will stay. I wanted to stay at Lost Maples, but I checked and of course there are no available spots . Checked another state park and ....same thing. Waiting for DH to come in to see which ones we should check next.

We love Canyon Lake and NBC too......... too cold for tubing the Guadalupe this week though....

off to check canyon lake availability !

Well, I took a 2 1/2 hour nap this afternoon ! The kitchen and dining room are covered with stuff...... seems like we're taking the whole house !

Still having trouble finding a campsite that we like with openings. May end up at KOA in Kerrville, which would be fine.

Supper was jalapeno poppers ~ ~ and wings ( frozen from a bag - 2 carbs ) Never had tried them and had some in freezer. They are ok - nice when you're tired.

Dh has been outside doing work and packing up big stuff in truck. We should both sleep good tonight ! Going to take benadryl and melatonin to make sure my nap doesn't mess me up !

FYI ~ diet A&W root beer is the bomb !

It's a lot of work to get ready for a trip, isn't it? I hope you sleep well. Sorry about having trouble finding places at the moment for the camping expedition. Things might open up as you move around. Just keep checking back at the other places and see if they had some no-shows and stuff like that.

Keep in touch as you travel! We want pics and updates, honey.

WOW Laura !!! That's an awesome number to see on the scale !

Have a lovely, relaxing RV adventure! Christmas is coming so your family can get you all those RV home essentials so you don't have to pack up so much every time you go somewhere .

That's right, Susan. Once they've gotten all the cupboards and drawers stocked up with light-weight things that can stay in the trailer, trips will be much easier "down the road." Exciting! Can't wait to hear how everything goes on your maiden voyage!

We made it ! Yesterday was a stressful one RV wasn't ready
but, no worries, we went to this little local RV park to try it out ( gave us one free night here with purchase ). Everything works !

Bed is HARD.... We figured it would be. Will probably stop and get a pillow top to put on it and see if that helps.

Cold and super WINDY !! We are fixing to load up and head to park in Kerrville ( Cheryl you will know where this is ). Really nice park. Plan to stay 2 nights....

Didn't eat much yesterday :
almond milk/prot pwd/chia
few bites of brisket and pickles
Hamb patty with swiss / lettuce/tomato/pickles/mayo/mustard
greek yogurt


Well, I guess it was more than I thought. We were sooooo tired. Barely made it to the news
plan to make a big ole pot of chili later ! yummmm......

Up with cramping and multiple bathroom trips in the middle of the night. And of course our neurotic dog had to go out in the middle of the night, so not much sleep here That's ok.

Just checking in. Should have wifi in Kerrville, have read through the threads quickly, will respond later.

Sorry for the troubles with getting the RV. I'm sure you'll find just the right mattress topper and soon you'll be loving that bed. Kerrville! Yep, I know it. What a great time of year to be in the Hill Country. You said it's cold? Are you enjoying the cool?

Does your 5th wheel have one of those electric fireplaces? It looks like one that would have one of those. If so, turn that puppy on and have yourself a LC hot chocolate or something equally comforting. Hopefully you are in a good place and maybe can even light a real fire in a nice fire pit.

Keep feeding us your stories! We will be waiting for the next installments. I hope you get more sleep tonight and doggy settles in.

Yep, just as I thought... motels are better! Hope you get all the kinks ironed out. You'll be happy to get home & back to work!

Motels are NOT always better. When she gets all the tweaking done, she and her DH will be riding in luxury and never have to unpack a bag or go out for dinner or anything if they don't want to. I'm so green with envy! But it's fun to even KNOW someone who can afford to buy something I drool over.

We stayed at a campground in Myrtle beach last year for Spring break. Rented a little vacation house, but all around us were these huge RV's. I was so jealous!! They looked like they were always having fun!! Enjoy it, even little short getaways are better than sitting at home wishing you were getting out

Sounds LOVELY! I think I've been to Lost Maples. Or maybe I'm confusing that with a place that (if memory serves) is called Horseshoe Falls. So glad you're getting comfy cozy in the RV and enjoying your home-cooked meals and fireplace, etc. Enjoy every second of it.
