Some Travel, Some Rain, Some Fire

Boerne, TX.

59 deg. fog, SE wind @ 3 mph.

Forecast = Overcast in the morning, then mostly cloudy. Fog early. High of 77F. Winds from the ESE at 5-15 mph shifting to the NE in the afternoon.

We pulled out of the Happy Oaks RV Park in Alleyton about 9:25 yesterday morning and immediately got back on West bound I-10. Again the roads were smooth and the traffic was moderate, so we moved right along. Just before we got to San Antonio, we turned off of I-10 and headed North on TX 1604 / C.W. Anderson Loop. The first part of this road is 2 lane, then turns to 4 lane and finally an Interstate type 4 lane with limited access.

The 2 lane part of this road was kind of bumpy with quite a bit of truck traffic, the next portion was smoother, but there were stop lights and lots of traffic, and finally the last part was fairly smooth but there was a lot of traffic merging onto the road, so the traffic didn't move very smoothly.

The whole loop road cut off quite a few miles though, and I would imagine that the traffic through the main part of San Antonio on I-10 would have been pretty heavy too.

Once back on I-10, on the NW side of the city, it was only a few miles to our destination just Southeast of Boerne.

One of the main things that slowed down traffic is that just before we came to the 1604 loop it started raining lightly and continued all the way around the city and up here to the Alamo Fiesta RV Resort.

It was 11:50 when we pulled up to the office, so we traveled exactly 150 miles in 2 hours and 25 minutes.

Not too shabby!! ; )

It was still raining when when Jim pulled me into my site, so Jim went out and just hooked up my electric cord. Then, he came inside, leveled me and put out my slides.

 Oh, and he did hook up the cable TV while he was out there so that he could watch some of the Daytona 500 race that had been postponed from Sunday.

Speaking of the race, it was delayed again, so yesterday evening, Jim and Linda got to watch the whole thing. I'll have to admit that it was pretty exciting, and at one point, I thought they were going to burn down the track!!!

We'll be staying here at the Alamo Fiesta RV Resort for 5 nights. My first impressions of this park are mixed. Jim said that the man who registered me in the office was very nice and helpful, there are lots of amenities, but the area where my site is, is just a gravel lot with cement parking pads. I do have full hook-ups with 50 amp electric, the cement parking pad is very level, but the site is narrow and Jim had to park CLT along side of me because the site's not long enough to park him in front or behind me.

I am in one of the lowest priced sites though, so I'm thinking that maybe the more expensive sites are larger. I'll be fine here for 5 nights while Jim and Linda explore the area. This area of the park seems pretty quiet and maybe I'll get to know a few of the RVs that are parked near me while they're out and about.   : )

Did you know that  Boerne, TX was named in honor of Ludwig, Borne, a Jewish German author and publicist? The city was founded in 1849 as Tusculum, the name was changed to Boerne when the town was platted in 1852
