On the Road Again, So Happy to be On the Road Again

Picked up the RV from storage yesterday afternoon, loaded up this morning and hit the road.  We didn't go far but the Traveling Longdogs and I are so happy to be out in the RV.  I called on a whim last week to see if La Pointe RV Resort might have any openings--didn't expect to get a yes because the COE campgrounds are all full.  The trick is that they don't take reservations here.  It's a membership park but they don't take reservations from members either.  They honor Passport America and Escapees as well as a couple of others.  Sooooo, I called again yesterday to see if they still had openings, got another yes, and went to pick up the RV.  I came early in the week because I figured most people would come later.  School started in Texas this week.   Here we are tooling down the road to Canyon Lake.

Even though school is on, the toobers are still doing business.  It will be hot here for quite a while.  And, no, those are not rainclouds.  There is no rain around here and we could use it.

Sometimes it's "toobs" sometimes it's "tubes" but then you are liable to get "haus" instead of "house".  Anyway, the toobs are the round donut floats that were originally from tires but are now usually plastic inflatables.

Okay, I'm here and this is the only picture you are getting tonight.  I took it out the back window of the 5th wheel.  Nice, huh?  See the deer?  I've seen at least 10 or 15 including a mother with two fawns and several guys with racks.  Of course, these deer aren't a whole lot bigger than my youngest son's mastiffs.

Things are all set up or stowed away depending on the item and I'm off to bed now.  I'll be back with more pictures.


  1. You are choosing to camp over Labor Day? You are a better woman than I. I would be avoiding the weekend. :)

    1. My son will be here and he gets the grandkids this weekend. It's a private campground with two pools. And I am not right next to them so think it won't be so bad. Also, kids in Texas started school this week so that cuts a few of the campers down too. The COE camps were all booked. Right now it is extremely quiet here so I will soak that in until Friday.

  2. always love having a great rear view. . .nice!


  3. Yaaaay, you're doing it! I'll bet the dogs love being walked in an area that's so pretty and smells so good. Love your view - it's nice to have so many deer nearby. Gonna be fun!!! :)

  4. Good to see you're on the road, again. Even if it's a holiday weekend. Hope you have a wonderful time.

  5. Oh I love that area. I miss it. Spent many a day down there eon's ago when I lived in SA. I always took the back roads to get to Canyon. And well, when I tubed, it was tires...Have a great time!!
