Sep 16, 2020 - South Fork, CO to Fredericksburg, TX

We hit the road from Riverbend Resort in South Fork, CO, about 9:30 Monday morning. We had beautiful weather for traveling & we did a little over 300 miles to Dalhart, TX. It was interesting to see the change in the country from mountains in Colorado to mesas in New Mexico to flat land in Texas. Friends had recommended the XIT Grill in Dalhart so we decided to try it. It's almost out of town but was worth the short drive - the BBQ was delicious! XIT comes from 10 (X) counties in (I) Texas (T) - an historic ranch that covered over 3,000,000...

Mar 18, 2020 - Fredericksburg, Texas aka Fritz Town

One place we have always wanted to visit is the Hill Country of Texas, 10,000 square miles of sweeping vistas that is considered the border between the American Southeast and Southwest. We chose to stay in Fredericksburg, a town approximately 70 miles northwest of San Antonio. The town was founded in 1846 by German immigrants and was named after Prince of Frederick of Prussia and is the birthplace of Admiral Chester Nimitz who was instrumental in our victory over Japan in WW II. The downtown and historic district is on the National...

Jan 27, 2020 - Fredericksburg, TX

We bypassed Junction, Texas this year as we were so disappointed with the condition of the RV park that we had stayed in for several years. Their sister park south of town was a disaster as flood waters from the Llano River had played havoc with the bottom part of this park. Arriving in Fredericksburg, we decided to stay for a week here as there is much to see and do, plus great restaurants. We did take a day trip back to Junction, about 80 miles, to eat at our favorite Texas BBQ place, Lum's. We were not disappointed. Many improvements...

May 8, 2019 - Spring in Texas

Contrary to our last entry, we are adding one more to this trip journal and then will be discontinuing it. Never fear, it is good news! Stay tuned for more information. We had a wonderful visit to the Texas Hill Country this spring. We left Wellton on March 17 as planned and took four days moving to Fredericksburg. In Benson the first night out we had a minor collision with a tree branch which caught our roof. This resulted in major damage necessitating a new roof while in Fredericksburg. We were fortunate to have good insurance once more...

Mar 23, 2019 - Prep and a Travel Day

Our prep day was busy as I dumped and rinsed the holding tanks. I then stowed the hoses and put that container in the truck bed. I made sure the inverter was working properly and then changed the fridge plug to the proper outlet and now it is running off the inverter. I programmed the GPS for our trip tomorrow and finished several other chores. I was ready when Jim walked over to help me take the DISH antenna off the roof. It is now stowed in the truck for travel. We cleaned up and drove to Denny & Jackie’s place to share a meal with these...

Mar 4, 2019 - Fredericksburg, TX

We had an uneventful trip to Fredericksburg, TX. It has become one of our favorite cities to visit in Texas. We stayed at The Vineyards RV Park just outside the city. Unfortunately their winter has been a little cold, we actually had low 20 degree nights for several nights of our stay, so the blue bonnets are not blooming yet. We did see them east of San Antonio, but not here yet. This area has wineries every 1/4 mile east of Fredericksburg. We didn't do any wine tasting but did try a new brewery out among all the wineries and near the...

Feb 20, 2019 - Kerrville and Fredericksburg, TX

Kerrville and Fredericksburg, TX 2-20-19 Today’s plan was to finish visiting the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg then do some free style touring of the area. We had breakfast in Kerrville then took a short half hour, 25 mile trip to Fredericksburg. We finished the main museum then headed over to the Pacific battle zone exhibit. This exhibit features a typical battle field with tanks, guns, pillboxes, and other cool stuff. They periodically hold battle reenactments viewable from a shaded amphitheater. There is also a PT...

Uvalde to Fredericksburg to Kerrville, TX 2-19-19 After a hearty breakfast at Days Inn and coffee from the Local Fix we were on the road again saying goodbye to Uvalde.

We took state Hwy 16 into Fredericksburg. Drove 120 miles in a bit over 2 hours arriving at noon. We are in Fredericksburg to see the National Museum of the Pacific War which we heard was supposed to be good. We...

Jan 11, 2019 - Hamburger Heaven and Remembering Willie and the Boys

Newt and Bernie let me sleep in on Friday and picked me up at 10:30. We had a short drive out into the country to what is known and believed by many to be the best hamburgers in Texas. Again, we wanted to beat the crowds. This place, Alamo Springs, is out in the middle of nowhere and people come from all over to enjoy their hamburgers and numerous other items on their menu. I had been their guests on my last visit and requested the revisit, but on my dime this time. After lunch they had more surprises for me. We visited a seed producer (I...

Jan 10, 2019 - Newt and Bernie are my Tour Guides!

My buddy, Newt, picked me up at 8:30 and we began a full day of seeing the sights. Fredericksburg is in the heart of what Texas calls the Hill Country and we did see a few hills. (Texas hills - not California hills.) Newt first took me to Cross Mountain (what Texas calls a mountain ;-D ) and then to Enchanted Mountain which probably does qualify as a mountain. Certainly a very big hill. (Forgive me Texans...you all are so proud of your state and how big everything is, so I just have to tease you about your hills and mountains.) Enchanted...

Jan 9, 2019 - Bush Country to Hill Country TX

It was an uneventful (love those) drive to the Texas Hill Country. I am returning for the second time to see my forum buddy Newt and Bernie, his bride of 32 years. They sold their HitchHiker, moved into a home without any wheels and bought a smaller RV for jaunts when they feel the urge. When I visited them for the first time back in January,'15, it was so cold in Fredericksburg that icicles formed on my truck and RV. It wasn't warm, today, but still, only in the 50s. Compare that to the 20s and it's almost tropical! I checked into Lady...

Oct 25, 2018 - Moving on South

It was a good idea to remain parked yesterday as it rained relentlessly all day and into the evening hours. We enjoyed the quiet, restful day and awoke this morning to find our site in the middle of a soggy, swamp-like, area. I waded around to get things ready for the road, disconnecting and stowing the sewer hose, the co-ax for the cable tv, and finally the water hose and electric cable. We had planned to leave the RV Park at 9:30 and were both ready to go at 9:15. Denny & Jackie followed close behind us as we headed south on Hwy 281...
