Where I stayed
Today as we were driving, we noticed how many critters were on the side of the road dead. It reminded me of the time when we went across country the first time on the bikes in 1993 with the 3 boys. Chris had Jim on his bike and I had Tim behind me with Matt in the side car. Chris and I were able to communicate with each other via CB's. We were able to radio each other what each of the kids thought was on the side of the road. The kids loved trying to figure it out. Ok they are boys... Not my most favorite game in the world, but it kept the kids entertained, As we pulled out of a rest stop today, the first thing we saw was a dead goat, several deer, and some things we couldn't identify
As I mentioned before, we got a great start to the day. The weather here is absolutely beautiful. The wind was blowing pretty good today out on the road, but to our advantage. It kept us cooler and we didn't run into the heat issues we had yesterday. The ride into San Antonio was one of the nicest rides we have had. That part of Texas we enjoyed very much. The little mountain ranges that are here were fun to ride.
Stopped at a gas station today (well 4 of them, was afraid to go much over 100 miles, didn't know when the next as station was), I have found out if you ask very nice they are happy to give you ice in your water bottle. Told a gal here that we wanted to stay hydrated, she mentioned we must be miserable in this heat. NOT, where we came from, we are enjoying be warm.
We got into San Antonio around 3ish this afternoon. We are staying at our Daughter In Law's Mom's house. Kay teaches at UTSA and was working when we got here. She had left us a email to make ourselves at home, take a shower and do laundry if we wanted
Will be leaving bright and early, (ok daybreak isn't until 6:30ish) and will be heading towards Houston to get me a new back tire. We knew I would need one somewhere on this trip, just didn't know when it would be. Tomorrow is the day. There is this HD shop in Houston called Stubbs Harley Shop (Shelby), but it is on the wrong side of Houston, or we would have gone there just for you.
I must be the only one sitting in their home in a sweatshirt. Air conditioning.
Hope all is well back home, chat with you soon! Love the little notes, make us smile throughout the day. Chris and Sher
