Good Ride

We rode to Luckenbach Texas. It's a small town only because it has a Post office. They have live music on a small stage.  They have a bar with food and a Texas hat shop, and that is it.
Luckenbach Population 3
And a long horn steer.
We got back and Santa stopped by to wish us a Merry Christmas.
Today we need to get ready to move to Mercedes Texas to stay for the winter. We have to travel about 320 miles tomorrow.

Bikin With New Friends

Yesterday was a great day. I rode with Bob. He rode his Ultra. We rode 260 miles on some of the coolest roads. We rode two legs of the 3 sisters. They are Texas 335, 336 and 337. We rode some of 337 but the coolest was 336. At one point you are riding a ridge with a valley on your left and one on your right. Each 1000 feet down. I forgot me phone so this is the only picture I have.
  Bob and I when we got back.
Today Peggy and I are going to ride to Luckenbach. I will try to remember my phone this time.

GO Loins

We sat outside and watched the Lions get a big win.
Then after the game we went to the Thanksgiving dinner in the park. Lots of food. My smoked salmon was a huge hit. We sat with all the people that are parked around us.
Today we are going to go for a bike ride once it warms up.
Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving Day

Last night the park had a dinner show. They had a singer from Nashville. Karen Waldrup she was very good.
The barn they have the shows and party's in is real nice.
I smoked some Salmon on the BGE for the dinner party tonight. I am also going to make a pasta salad to take. The weather yesterday was great it got up to 73 and sunny. We sat outside in the sun reading the new books we got at the Pacific War Museum in Fredericksburg. The park started to fill back up in the afternoon. Things I am thankful for is being able to retire and do our dream.
Happy Thanksgiving Day to everyone.

Get Ready For Thanksgiving

We are busy getting ready for the Thanksgiving Party. I had to go get propane it was cheaper here then at home. It was $21.75 to fill one tank. Peggy did laundry while I went to the store. Had to get new head lights for the truck one burned out.

It was a little cool out yesterday 64. So it was shopping day. We had to go get groceries  for Thanksgiving party here at the park. They are supplying the Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. Everyone is bringing a dish to pass. I am going to make my world famous Pasta Salad and I am going to smoke some Salmon to take.
We went to the local find everything store Gibson's and found a new phone holder for my cell phone. It's made of boot leather so it should last a long time.

Big Bike Ride

We went on a good bike ride 120 miles. We rode in to Kerrville then on Texas 16 to Medina and then onto Bandera. Bandera is an old Texas Hill Town. There was a lot of bikers in town. The weather was great, sunny and 76.
Texas hwy 16 was a great road it had a lot of curves and hills, some you could only do 20 mph. We stopped at the Chiken Coop to have a pop. It was a cool bar.
We got back just in time to see the Lions get there butts handed to them. You can still change your vote on the poll.
Today is sunny but a little cool out.
Peggy will not let me call and thank the people that bought our house so we can do this great trip.

Movie Day

It was rainy but warm yesterday. So we stayed here and watched a movie, it was Captain Phillips it was about the hijacking of the Maersk Alabama in the waters off Somali. It was a good movie.

We have our own Christmas Decorations.
Today the sun is out and it should get to 78. So we are going for a bike ride. The park gave us a map of bike rides in the area.
Lots of good curvy roads to ride. One is the best road in America that follows a river. I am going to look for that one. We are in the Texas Hill Country. So the road have a lot of curves and hills.

Kerrville Texas

Park Entrence

We moved to Kerrville Texas, to Buckhorn Lake RV Park. This is one of the BEST parks we have ever been to. We traveled 290 miles, got here at 3. The drive thru Houston was not fun. We ate at Cowboy Steak House, it was good food.
Our Site at the Buckhorn

On the drive to the restaurant we saw 4 small does and an 8 point buck, but he looked kind a small for a buck.
Just  5 lots away are some friends from Betty's, Jim and Debbie They are here until Sunday. They are on their way to the RGV so we will meet up with them there.

The Garmin doing it's job! Showing what lane to be in.

Lazy Day

Did not do much yesterday. It is starting to warm up, it got to 57.
Today we need to fuel up to get ready to move to Kerrville Texas. I saw fuel for $3.06 the other day. I hope it is still that price.

Cliff the lucky dog.
We went to the movies with Kim last night. The theater was one of those that has mix drinks and beer. They bring it to your seats. The girls did like that. We saw Interstellar, I liked it the girls did not.

Sunny, Cold and Windy

It was Sunny, Cold and Windy yesterday. It only got to 48 degrees. So we were on a mission. We are hungry for pickled bologna. Have not been able to find any in the stores. It is not a Texas thing, they do not ever have ring bologna. So we got some pickling spice, vinegar and some beef sausages to make our own.

Give it a week or so it will be killer. Just like grandpa Miller made. We did find Shrimp at the store. I steamed them up and made my world famous sauce and that was dinner.

Rainy Sunday

Kim came and picked us up at 11:00. Then we went to La Brisa Mexican Grill for brunch. It was very good.  
After brunch we went to Kemah it is on the Galveston Bay. It has a boardwalk with a lot of bars and restaurants. We tried to walk on the boardwalk, but it started to rain. So we went to The Monkey Bar and watched the football games and Nascar race. Then we went to Outriggers Seafood Bar and Grill and had some crab dip.

Fun Rainy Day

Kim came and picked us up about 12:00 noon. We drove around looking for  Verizon store to replace my phone case but we were unsuccessful. My phone is too old, they do not have cases for older phones.
Then we went to lunch at T-bone Tom's Steakhouse. The food was good. I had one of my favorite things Sausage sandwich with BBQ Sauce. 

We did some site seeing then we went to dinner at The Swamp Shack. The food was good there too.
We did not get back to our rolling home until 7:30. Cliff was pretty mad at us for being gone all day. But he got over it fast when Peggy filled his bowl with food.

Then we have the best traveler of all Cliff.
It is still cloudy and cool. It's only 48 this morning.
It should get to 63 today but cloudy.
