The Road to San Antonio

I was watching a rerun of "Family Guy" where Brian and Stewie had a road trip and ended up doing in a freightcar doing a duet that was an homage to Bob Hope and Bing Crosby's "Road" pictures. Quite clever.

In that spirit I'm heading out on the road to San Antonio tomorrow morning. I'll be posting daily as I have my laptop and wireless card. I'm looking forward to my first serious ROAD TRIP in over two years. Sorta sad to miss Alumapalooza and a week in the Wilds of Ohio, but looking forward to going out on the by-ways and seeing the small towns and unique spots along the way. 10 days to travel so no need to push it... 300-400 miles per day, stop when something interesting pops up, enjoy the sights and the people along the way.

Happy trails, all. See you down the road. Paula

FYI - A good size group of Forums folks are getting together near the river in San Marcos, TX, if your travels have you that far south by the upcoming weekend. Should be tons of fun.

meadows of Dan

Well I traveled out State route 58 instead of I-64 from Virginia Beach. Fairly uneventful, except the new wheels and tires meant I needed to mess with the hitch setup. Didn't get it dialed in right so in 99 degree heat I fixed it in a vacant building's parking lot. Nice law officer came up to kanoodle just as I was finishing up. (smelled like a goat and was dripping with sweat down to my ankles, wouldn't you know.)

Got him convinced that I knew what I was doing when I retorqued my lug bolts (after 124 miles, not 50) so he went away. Never has one woman been SO grateful for a gallon or two of tepid water to shower in. Fresh clothes and "on the road again".

Meant to stay at the Virginia Highland Haven, but ran out of daylight due to the readjustments, etc. Saw the Meadows of Dan and knew there was a small campground there... so pulled in and went face first into the mattress after hooking up water and electric. Havent been out on the road for a while, first day was tiring.

The mountain air with the Laurels in bloom was really intoxicating and the night cool enough that the fantastic fans were enough. Saw several bluebirds the next morning - nice to see them making a comeback. Dawdled and didn't get started until almost 10 am.

Thus ended the first day of the trip.

Paula
