After a couple of weekend trips and having to cancel our original big trip thru the Northern US for family issues, we’re ready to head out on a shorter southern trip. We really wanted to go RVing before winter sets in and we have to winterize it, so a little trip down to Texas worked out.
We’re taking five days to drive down to San Marcos, TX (between Austin and San Antonio - SA), with a couple of nights in Hot Springs, Ark. San Marcos is just north of our daughter’s home, which is just north of SA, and in the Hill Country known for BBQ and German food, including chicken fried steak. We’ll be there the weekend before and early Thanksgiving week, so the grandkids are out of school for our entire visit. We’ll come back the southern route through LA (Louisiana) and LA (lower Alabama) taking several more days to get home.
We wanted to pull our little Honda hybrid, which required getting a tow dolly, and here we are loaded up and ready to pull out.
We’re taking the two little dogs along and the house sitter will look after Cody and Kitty, so hopefully that will all work well.
When we ride in the car, I generally have Sweetie on my left leg and Coco rides with Bev - I won’t do that in the RV (at least yet), but they both still want a lap, so this is how Bev gets to ride.
While I was relaxing and Bev went in to fix our dinner of warmed up pepperoni buns with sauce and cheese, I heard this loud, and pretty long, crash and went running to the RV. As it turned out, when she opened the fridge, the top plastic hinge broke and the door fell off – and it was only day one. We used some duct tape to secure it (Bev’s universal fix-all) and spent the next couple of hours out in the cool dark talking about stuff – that was different – no TV, no computer, just us and the two little dogs enjoying the night air under the stars and the jet contrails.
So much for day one and I’ll keep you posted as we go along and weave a couple of pre-trip posts in as well.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
