Cap in Red, Thanks for your post. It is a good feeling to know that we can get diesel on 77. We bought a new 250 but have not taken a trip with it yet.

Rednax, Wow you did a great job on your post to me. I feel so much better knowing what roads are the best. It will make my trip so much better. Thanks again, AP

I'd add an option to Rednax's route from Fort Worth. If you're starting from the western half of town, we like 377 to Stephenville and pick up 281 there

I'll second that notion, overall.


can get diesel on 77.

To be certain: my post above concerned only the way to use US-281 and avoid US-77 south of Corpus Christi. It is otherwise a good choice north of this city in staying off of the Interstate to travel towards D/FW.

DKB-SATX and Rednax,
We are in North West Fort Worth. 377 will be easy for me to pick up going out of Fort Worth. I sure appreciate the help as I will be driving and I don’t have any experience towing. Our rig is in great condition and our truck is new so I feel comfortable in that aspect. However, it is sure a comfort to know that I will be traveling on good roads that are recommended by folks that have actually made the trip. AP

If you want to stop at the Bluebonnet in Marble Falls, it is on the left, going south, about mid-city. There is a big parking lot behind the Bluebonnet that will accept our rigs quite nicely.

At the Bluebonnet, check out the meringue pies. They are awesome; at least 4" of meringue. They usually sell out by late lunch time.

Just SW of Burnet is Inks Lake State Park. Plenty of space this time of year and a great place to hike. Not only a pretty lake, but granite outcrops. My photo above was taken at Inks Lake.

Wow, who doesn’t love pie? That is for sure a place to stop and take a rest and enjoy the goodies. Thanks for all the good travel tips. The lake in the picture is beautiful. You guys sure know your way around Texas. I am beginning to believe this trip is going to be as relaxing as the destination.

We were there for Pie Happy Hour. Life is good, my friends.
