Harry and Judy's RV Trip
No Photos 20th Apr 2011 - Summer 2011
Day 4-Columbus to San Antonio. TX

Weds., April 20th-Got up early again, must be the time change.  Did I mention the owner of the campground has 28 chickens in addition to the cats and dogs?  She gave us some fresh eggs for breakfast from her Araucana and Americana chickens-they lay green eggs.  They made the yellowest scrambled eggs I've ever seen.  Janice, do you have this kind of chicken?

Hooked up and said goodbye to the cats, especially a 6-toed Hemingway named, what else, Ernie, and a little black 5 month old kitten that reminded me of Beasley, very fuzzy.

Texas from Houston to San Antonio is very flat with lots of wide open space, ranches with mostly black cows and horses, lots of babies this time of year, and wheat fields with some corn fields. Only 136 miles driving today, 2-1/2 hours.

There's lots of hurricane evacuation signs which surprised me and flashing highway emergency signs saying "Extreme Wild Fire Danger".  They haven't had rain for a long time and everything is dry and dusty.  The campfire ban has been extended so probably no fire tonight.  It looks like it might rain today but then the sun keeps popping out. It's about 85 degrees and a bit humid.

We met a couple at the campground in Louisiana and told them we were coming here and we met up with them again today.  Supposed to do something with them tonight and maybe continue on with them.  We spoke about going to Big Bend National Park and the Mexico problem but we also spoke to a man who's 86 and goes back and forth all the time (he even lives in Mexico part of the year) and says there's no problem, so we might go that way.  But, like John says, it's not a problem 'til it's a problem.  I'll keep you posted.  It's about 600 miles south of here and really out of the way but supposedly really beautiful.

Going on a tour of San Antonio tomorrow, to the Alamo, the Riverwalk and down the river on a boat.

Thanks for all your comments, I really like reading them.
