What I did
Costco and the Dubya Store
Then we set the CoPilot on the phone for Costco. There was lots of traffic, due to it being a Saturday. Folks have much less respect for a tiny Subaru Forester compared to Shorty. Why is that? We found the store, which was packed! There are lots of items that are unique to the area in such stores, so we always make the full tour to see what we can learn. We didn't buy much, since we don't have the storage space of the Newmar Coach we had looked at. Thanks God...
We got a few more items at the Dubya Store, which was a good one, with a great inventory and friendly clerks.
It's an interesting ethnic mix here as it is in most larger Texas towns. I enjoy just looking around and seeing the folks. Montana is still impressing folks with many wishing that they could visit. They're always interested in the winter temps and snow depth, so I have to inform them about how it used to be before the climate has taken a turn for the different.
Our current RV "Resort" is pretty sad. It's old, but with friendly staff. Sites are okay, surface-wise, but it's not a resort by any stretch of the imagination. No pool, no grass, nothing resortish. The washing machine has to be coaxed to spin, according to the lady who checked us in. Thus, we went to Seguin proper to wash our clothes. The only advantage is that it's cheap, at only $15 a night.
The weather is warming nicely. Yesterday was a sunny day and got up to 82 degrees outside. Since we hadn't left the AC running, it was "toasty" inside of the coach when we returned. It took no time at all to get it back into the "comfy" range however.
I drained our tanks and replaced the blackwater blade valve with no problem. It had been a bit reluctant to open, but now is smooth as silk, if such can be said about a wastewater valve.
We'll be moving west in a short while to Lost Trees State Natural Area. I'll be checking in from there if the connection is decent.
As always, thanks for checking in, you loyalists...
