Heading East

Yesterday’s trip from the Texas Hill Country back to Rainbow’s End was uneventful, but, at six hours, was a little too long for our liking.  One thing that we noticed was that in Texas “they” (whoever “they” are) dress up the overpasses.  Not just your average concrete stanchions with steel girders.  “They” use color and design in the concrete, as you can see from the pictures below.  Being that Texas is the Lone Star State, you’ll see lots of stars in the decor.

Being that we are in the “Global Warming” phase of history, the warmer winter/spring has brought the wild flowers out in full bloom earlier this year.  Real “purdy” to say the least.  Here are the blue bonnets, they’re everywhere and just plain beautiful.


Judy shot the following pictures as we were going down the highway so they are just a tad bit blurry, but you get the idea.  God is a great artist and the flowers were gorgeous.

We made it to Rainbow’s End around two o’clock, set up camp, and headed to Pizza Hut for some grub.  Pizza Hut has never been one of our favorite pizza places and still isn’t, but it was substance and we were hungry.  Plus we added one more state to the list of states where the four of us have shared pizza.

Just lucky, I guess, but we managed to get one of the most unleveled sites that we’ve had in a long, long time.  If we still had that cheap landing gear that Forest River installed on our rig, we’d have never gotten level.  But, the new Ultra-Fab system had no problem leveling front to rear and side to side.  The legs are extended further than I’ve ever had to extend them with the “gooseneck” of CC so high that I can walk under the front without ducking.

There’s a severe weather pattern heading our way so we’ll hunker down here until it passes.  But, another problem with staying at Rainbow’s End is that we only get one television station (FOX).  Now, we don’t really watch a lot of TV, but do like the weather coverage when there’s strong storms passing our way.  In any event, we’ll have plenty of time for reading and for watching West Wing; we’re up to year five now.

Hope You’re Having A Good Day and May God Bless  - - - - - - - - - -


  1. Stay safe. Not sure if that front will be down this far south, but we will keep an eye out for it.

  2. Stay Safe...hope the weather isn't too bad...
