June 18, 2019 to June 25, 2019

Mileage:    
2638

Location:    
Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground
Santa Fe, NM

We had several errands to tend to in the nation’s oldest capital city, and we were excited to be back in New Mexico. We had originally hoped to route through Las Cruces but just didn’t have enough time to get from Point TX to Santa Fe NM to make that work. We’ve pretty much decided that 200-250 miles per day is our range.

Mileage:    
2136

Location:    
Lake Arrowhead State Park
Wichita Falls, TX

Arrowhead Lake State Park was simply beautiful. We thought it would be quiet, and it was one of the prettiest and best-kept state parks we’ve stayed at. We were only here for one night and wished we had more time.

Lake Tawakoni, Point TX, and the family reunion

Mileage:    
1946

Location:    
Thousand Trails RV
Point, TX

We went to Point, TX to attend the Reed family reunion – ElizaBeth’s family. Particularly when you get into rural Texas, the patriotism is really on display. State pride is evident all over, too, with the Texas flag painted on barns and even gates.

ElizaBeth and I made our home in New Mexico in 2008 and Livingston, TX is our domicile, but I grew up in the Dallas Fort Worth area, went to college at TCU, and have lived and worked in Arlington, Fort Worth, Dallas, Watauga, Colleyville, Plano, Richardson, Denton, and Gainesville – and it’s where 5 out of our 8 grandkids are growing up.

Hallettsville TX and a visit with Heather

Dates:     
May 23, 2019 to May 28, 2019

Mileage:    
1343

Location:    
Knights of Columbus RV Park
Hallettsville, TX

Hallettsville is a little south of Schulenberg, although probably not that many more people will know where that town is located either. There is a very rich history in central and south Texas, and this part of the country is where the Germans, Czechs, and Austrians settled. The area is also home to ElizaBeth’s youngest daughter and her husband Jose. We stayed over Memorial Day at the Knights of Columbus RV Park, and as so many places have been already, the park was an accidental great find.

Magnolia RV Park and Goodrich TX

Dates:     
April 25, 2019 to May 23, 2019

Mileage:    
1163

Location:    
Magnolia RV Park
Goodrich, TX

While we really enjoyed the Escapees Park in the Piney Woods of East Texas, we were nestled in some trees that completely blocked the satellite dish. We also found out that we needed to stay in the area a week or two longer than we first planned, so we moved 7 miles down the road to Magnolia RV Park. We’ll admit that we missed TV more than we thought we would.
