Movin on down the road.

Thanks for joining us on our journey of North America
 in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006

Where are we today ?

        Well we have been here at Glen Rose Texas for a week, a very nice place but time to move on and explore another membership park Sun Country Resort in Whitney Texas its nice to camp with no overnight fees, really helps the budget. Just a nice scenic country drive of a little over an hour, 51 miles today.

         We had been here in 4 years ago and were not impressed at that time. This place was very tired and run down and we said we would never return. But they have been taken over by a new  company just recently and the improvements are happening very quickly. Still in the growing stages but what a big difference, friendly staff, and the campground is really getting cleaned up, we will be back again for sure now.
51 Miles
        All set up on a huge site before lunch, then after a bite to eat off to the hardware store for some nuts, bolts and washers. Putting away our satellite dish this morning, rivets on the tripod broke so two choices, either fix it or get a new tripod. Well I think the 'fix it" is much less expensive a good chance to repair it with stronger parts.
broken rivets
        So with new bolts, washers and nylock nuts in hand I drilled out the worn and broken rivets, straightened the brackets and a few minutes later we are good to go dish is set up again. An easy fix for less than two bucks. Better than fifty bucks for a new one.
sturdy repair
         Now we are good to go ! Yep go outside set up lawn chairs, put up our feet, enjoy our books, in the shade of our coach, with a cool beverage and a nice light breeze. Eben chatted with a couple neighbors for a while too. It was overcast a bit and good thing, because the temperature was 90f (32c) without any direct sun a great spring day for sure.
nice large sites
        This is the only place we have ever seen this sign. No doubt in my mind that everyone picks up after their pets here.
        Well before w know time for supper again, and what to have? Hmm let see a nice huge thick smoked pork chop was found in our freezer, big enough that we can share it. So just fire up the grill, boil some potatoes and mixed veggies we have a nice tasty meal.

        That chore and dishes out of the way, we can relax outside a bit more on a nice warm evening with our books until its too dark to read any more. Then a bit of tv to wind up another get Texas day.
