Up Date

We made it to Medina Lake in Lake Hill TX last week. It was a longer drive that usual about 300 miles. It is a great park to spend the holiday and Christmas was real nice. They put on a great dinner and there was around 75 people there.

We haven't done much here as we have seen most things around here. At least this time the lake is full. We have never seen water in it in the past 5 years. They got lots of rain last year and it filled up.

And then there are the deer.... There are lots of deer in the park that people feed Deer Corn. They love it and come right to you to get some. We went to the store and got a 50lb. bag and Gloria feeds them every day.

Bristol even go into the Christmas Spirit.

We sure like this park and will always come back here. We will be here for another week so we may get out and do some touristing but then again we may just stay around here and relax.

All most that time again


Well it is almost that time again. We pack up tomorrow and leave on Wednesday. We have had a great time here meeting up with friend and doing activities at the club house. We also did some sight seeing. First we went to Huntsville TX. and seen the Sam Huston Visitors Center then to the Huntsville Prison Museum and the Veterans Museum. All were great and I have added a link at the top as always so you can see the pictures I too. The next trip was to Huston TX. to see the place Sam Huston beat Santa Ana at San Jacinto They also have a nice museum on it there. Also we went to see the Battle Ship Texas. It was built in 1914 and is the only surviving ship that served in both world wars.
We will leave here and head to Medina Lake north of San Antonio. We have been here several time and will be there for Christmas and New Years.

We moved again

Wednesday we left Whitney and headed south to Conroe TX. Just in time as it was going to be real cold that night. Got all set up at Lake Conroe RV Park and even got the Christmas stuff out and set up.

 It is a real nice park and they have done some real good work on the park since we were here 5 years ago. We will be here for two weeks and have already met up with friends we had met in other parks. Even got to play Bingo several time and we both did some winning. Have not done much but will be out and about soon. It has been a bit cool and wet the last few day.

We moved on Wed. and headed south to a member park we have not been to in 5 years. It is Lake Whitney RV Park and is Whitney TX. We will be here for only one week so we wont be doing much. I am still fighting a cold but it is getting better. Today it is raining and cold but we got up to breakfast. Gloria did a craft sale and did real good. We will leave here and go farther south to Lake Conroe for two weeks on Wednesday.

Not doing much

We really have not done much here this time. We did get to meet up with friends we met in Ohio Mike and Christine Shields. That is always fun and we have gone out to dinner twice with them. The weather has not been all that good with rain and wind some of the time and cool. So I have not taken on the bike at all here. We did go to Sulphur Springs TX. We went to the Southwest Dairy Museum to learn all about cows and milk also had so ice cream there. Then it was off to Grand Saline TX  to see the Salt Palace. It is run by Morton Salt and is built all from salt rocks. And yes it does melt away in time and has been replaced several times. The mine is about a mile away but you can not tour it. The salt deposit is about 20,000 feet deep and can supply the country with salt for many thousands of years.
The last few day I have been down with a bad cold and have just stayed around the house. We leave here on Wed. and head south of Dallas to another member park.

Guess I am getting old or something. I forgot to say we have moved again. We left Lake Texoma on Wed. and drove 111 miles to Lake Tawakoni. It is a real nice park and we got a big site close to our friends Mike and Christine Shields. We will be here for 2 weeks. Sat. we had Thanksgiving Dinner that the park put out. It sure was good and there was about 120 people that showed.

We are here

After a 3 day trip we made it to Gordonville TX. and got all set up at Lake Texoma RV Park. We have not been here for 5 years and the park looks allot like it did back then. It is a nice place to stay and real peaceful.

There isn't must too see and do in the area so we will just enjoy our time. We did go to the Birth Place of Eisenhower yesterday. It is in Denson TX and we got to do the tour of the house he was born in. He was born in 1890 to more or less poor parents. They moved to Kansas when he we 18 months old. The things in the house and not the things that were there then but are period things.
