We had a great rally. The hostesses picked a good location that was out of the way but perfect. I arrived on Thursday. I was all set up and getting a little nervous waiting on my sister-in-law Elaine to arrive since I knew she was going to be coming in a hilly, curvy road. No Verison cell phone service here so I couldn't call her to check but she arrived and was all set up before I knew she was there. She sent me a message but, of course, I didn't get it. Friday, Judy, Lois, and Deb were busy cooking up bacona nd sausages ahead of time for the Saturday breakfast. That was a lot of bacon and the smell filled the rally room.
I'm always eager to head out to a new place. I originally thought that Camp Wood was in a different location because I was thinking of Camp Verde until I looked at the map. I was heading to Nueces River RV and Cabin Resort for a rally. More on that in the next post but This is a great area and a great park. I took Hwy 90 out of San Antonio and turned north at Uvalde. Okay, okay, I actually cut across country at Sabinal but the important info is that the roads are super easy with an RV no matter how big. You should also know that the famous Twisted Sister region is just north of Camp Wood. It's loved by all motorcyclists for it's very hilly, curvy, and exciting roads so coming from the north and northeast, you need to know what you are getting into. The RV park is surrounded by hills and trees.
All in all, it's a very nice park with friendly staff. The hill country is beautiful. It's wise to bring plenty of groceries. There is no grocery store in Camp Wood but you can pick thigs up at the gas station/convenience store or King's Texas Smokehouse which has good food. The Canyon BBQ and Grill and Casa Falcon are also good but go early as they close early. We sampled all at the rally coming up in the next post.
Spring break is over and I had to take my granddaughter back to Marble Falls to meet her mother. As long as I was already out on the road I decided to take advantage of my travels and expand them to take in the wildflower bloom. since I was already up in Marble Falls, the "Bluebonnet house" was first on the list. It's famous among professional photographers so I decided to take a shot myself.
Next, I headed across country to the Willow City loop where I have gotten good results some years. It's north of Fredricksburg Texas and goes through private ranch land. Ride along and enjoy.
