Okay, the RV is in the driveway, the fridge is cool, and I am throwing things in and heading out. Yay! I don't care if it is a crowded weekend. As long as I have a spot to stay, it will be wonderful. Let's see: clothes (check), medicine (check), dog medicine (check), dog crates (check, check, check), wine (check), dog food (check), fridge food (check), freezer food (check), wine (check), computer & bag (check), kindle (check), wine (check), camera (check), hmmmm, that should cover it. Give the dogs a quick bath, leashes, and we're off.
"On the road again, I just want to be on the road again.....". Willy, Gretchen, and Harley are a very uncritical audience when I break into song. lol
It wasn't a long trip but it was kind of exciting. The normal route I take out to Canyon Lake has some construction going on as you turn off I-35 so I decided to take some back roads. No problem, good roads. Out 3009, right on 46 heading towards New Braunfels, hmmm, "Old Crane Mill Road", that must be the one Vicki and I pulled her Casita back from Canyon Lake on. Gee, looks a little narrow. One lane going each direction. Wow, these lanes can't be much more than 6 feet wide. Check out these hills and it's windy like a snake on the move. No shoulders, trees crowding the sides. Hmmm, 20 MPH speed limit then 30 MPH, nope, back to 20 MPH. Okay, when the signs in Texas say 20 MPH, you want to pay attention because we are not known for holding down the speed limit. No place to turn around. Okay, we can do this. I pulled over the top of hill to see a pickup truck parked off the side in the ditch but it looks like it was intentional and we can get by...no problem. What! There's a water tank truck coming at us ahead. Hope he slows way, way down. Might have to pull the mirror in. We can do this.
Guess he took one look at the big 5th wheel and truck (it couldn't have been the driver) and he pulled off in the ditch behind the other truck. Okay, I didn't scare him off the road....they were meeting up.
Well, thank goodness those were the only two vehicles we met on the road. "Old Crane Mill Road" is what I call a really fun motorcycle road.......RVs.....not so much. Anyway, we connected up to the road heading into Sattler and zipped right along. Oh, yes....there's the road I should have taken to get here. All's well that ends well. Sorry, no pictures, couldn't take my hands off the wheel.
Arrived at my destination after a long travel day of 1 hour. More on that later.
