Mar 10, 2019 - San Angelo, TX

San Angelo, TX is a city we had not visited on our previous Texas visits. We stayed in the KOA here for four nights. Like all places in west Texas the wind blows pretty much all the time. However, one day we went down on the Concho River Walk which is 4 mile greenway along the river and didn't experience much wind. There has been a lot of rain in Texas this year so the rivers are running pretty full. We watch a show called Texas Country Reporter on RFD TV and the Phillips (hosts of the show) visited an ice cream store in San Angelo so of...

Winter2019

Feb 18, 2018 - Tripping to Texas

Traveling back to the U.S. from Loreto was a breeze. I love looking out the airplane window. As we flew over the desert I was surprised to see a large body of water that could only be the Salton Sea. As we turned west, there was Borrego Springs, CA off to my right. I waved to Susan Ammons but she didn’t wave back as she was busy playing tennis. I decided to spend the night near LAX instead of flying into Tucson at midnight. The Sheraton Gateway was wonderful. A last minute Hotwire booking made it cheaper than the 3-star La Quinta I had...

Nov 16, 2015 - San Angelo KOA

We'll spend 4 days here, slowing down. Then we'll move on to Fredericksburg on Friday where we will spend a week and celebrate Thanksgiving while there. Now I am up to date on my journal and I'll try to stay in this mode and maybe share a bit more of what we are up to.

Dream On

Sep 2, 2015 - San Angelo, TX

Since we couldn’t check into the next RV park until 2pm, we didn’t rush to leave Midland. It was only a 2 hour drive, so it was a nice leisurely morning. We went out to breakfast at the Main Street Diner…… a VERY local spot. Great breakfast before we got on the road. Our travels took us on I-20 east for a while and then south on a couple U.S. highways. We went from seeing oil pumps and storage facilities to windmills the further we went southeast. Quite a change in scenery. We arrived in San Angelo around 3pm and found a nice quiet RV park...

Jun 5, 2015 - Work's Done

Finished my work at the J&J plant in San Angelo, TX. It's an interesting place and pretty unique within J&J. It was built in 1963-64 when General Johnson realized that all of the needle and suture manufacturing capacity was along the east coast and vulnerable to nuclear attack. He decided to move some plants inland and this plant was built entirely underground. It was designed to be capable of surviving a nuclear blast. When most people were building home fall out shelters, General Johnson built the underground factory. I never knew. We had...

2015 Texas Trek

Mar 28, 2015 - Trailer and Motorcycles

After many weeks of planning, ordering, driving around, writing checks, and researching, the end of March had arrived, and we were finally able to enjoy the fruits of our labors, (and stress). First, we overnighted at Mother Neff State Park, so we could get an early start on a busy day. Recently renovated, Mother Neff turned out to be the better of two state parks we stayed at during our trip out of Texas. (State parks probably struggle over funding much like pigeons getting bird seed; they all eat… but some eat a lot better than others,...

Mar 30, 2014 - San Angelo St. Park

We spent three nights at San Angelo State Park in San Angelo, Texas. While there we were able to spend two days with Jerri Schooler and her son Steven. It was really fun to catch up with them again. We had not seen them since Jerri's husband and Steven's father, Jamie, passed away. The area is frighteningly dry from lack of rainfall. There is no OC Fisher Lake--it is totally dry. The city has about 14 months water supply. If it falls to 12 months very severe water restrictions will be imposed.

Oct 29, 2013 - Going West

Left Bandera @ 10:00 AM We seem to be getting started later and later all the time. We will be leaving Hill Country of Texas via 173. Picked up 10 in Kerrville @10:45. We are still in hills here but instead of traveling in the valleys we are going up and down the hills--clear to the top and then down again. Rosie DOES NOT like this route and she lets us know by groaning a lot when we are going up the hill. Believe it or not the speed limit here is 80mph We are going about 52, you can imagine the traffic passing us. At least it a 4 lane...

Mar 2, 2013 - San Angelo, TX

3/2/13, Saturday A couple hours drive brought us to San Angelo, TX, home to Goodfellow AFB. As we got nearer to San Angelo, the countryside changed to green!! AND, there was water (which we have not seen for quite awhile, at least this much)! Goodfellow AFB's RV Park is right on the shores of Nasworthy Lake. They have boat docks, boats to rent, BBQ places and great fishing. We think we will come back here for a longer stay on another trip. We talked to some local fisherman staying at the park. They had caught really nice Crappie, Catfish...

2013 USA Trip

Jul 15, 2012 - On the way!!!

We're finally on the way!! We left the house approx 1245 and about 10 minutes later, Bob discovered he left his phone in the Lincoln, so we turned around to retrieve it. So officially we left San Antonio at 1:05. The further north we traveled, the darker the skies became. We exited I-10 at Junction where we filled up at $3.60/gal (guess they are really proud of their gas). We drove NE on US 83 and ran into a downpour which lasted about 20 min. In Eden, TX we turned NW on US-87 which took the rest of the way into San Angelo where we...

Jul 7, 2011 - OTRA - TX - San Angelo

7/7/11 Well, much as we like Ft. Stockton and even though we didn’t see everything we wanted to see, if we plan to get to the east coast this year, we’d best get our rears in gear so off we went by 10:10 this morning. Next stop, San Angelo. We jumped off the interstate at U.S. 67 to follow the red road and see some Texas sights. Let me tell you, this red road was basically straight as an arrow and very good driving. Oh, how I like drive west of the Mississippi. We first passed through “Mesa Land” where we saw miles of flat-topped mesas...
