On the move again-Yeah!!!!!
|Winstar Casino RV Park|
|Free shuttle to the casino|
We finally left Kansas and it was certainly time. Our first stop was Thackerville, Oklahoma at the Winstar Casino’s RV park. This is a very nice park and if you sign up for their Players Card it is a great deal. The card gives you the first night free and the subsequent nights at $20 (regularly $25). That is for FHU with 50 amp, paved sites and patios, very nice laundry facilities and a free shuttle service to the casino. It is amazing that we have spent the last two Christmases at casinos and we are not big gamblers. Maybe next year we’ll break the streak. We were here 4 nights for $60, and that was a bargin.
|Eastview Ranch RV Park|
Yesterday we were off again to our next stop, Georgetown TX. We will be here for a week before heading to Port O’Connor. We are parked at the Eastview Ranch RV Park. This was recommended to us by a fellow work camper who stays here when visiting family. It is very reasonably priced and a very clean little park. The sites though are pretty tight; I miss the state and county parks but we are trying to save a little on our trip south. The people here also are very friendly and have given us lots of ideas for things to do.
|Outside the local winery|
|A great coffee shop|
Today we checked out Georgetown’s downtown and enjoyed their local Winery and a local coffee shop. We did some shopping but the only purchase was wine. It is a beautiful downtown that revolves around the town square with the courthouse on it. It was so nice to have the time and energy to be out discovering new places again. I was in heaven. We also hit their very nice shopping mall and the Target store. Target is one of my favorites so I was able to stock up on all kinds of things. The fridge and freezer are once again stocked.
|Got the coffee guy to take our photo|
|Not bad for an amateur|
Our Christmas gift to each other this year was a small camera, a Canon Powershot. Today’s photos are taken with the new camera. Sometimes there are places I don’t want to take my big Canon SLR and I wanted to get John taking a few photos. I figure it is the only way I’ll actually get in a few photos along the way. I’ve tried to give John some tips on photography and he usually ignores me but today he actually took a decent photo of me. I was pleasantly surprised, maybe he’ll get the hang of this yet.
One other item John purchased was a thermometer to put outdoors so we’d know the temp. He went very old school and mounted it to the outside ladder. There is one flaw in his plan: it seems it is always in the sun so today when I looked out it registered almost 100 degrees. If it is 100 out why did I need a coat and why was the furnace still running??? I think he does these things just to make me laugh, and laugh I do. :)
|Wow, its hot outside-----maybe|
We have plans to head into Austin which is just a few miles to the south. We have already found a couple brewpubs and maybe even a bike trail. The weather is suppose to get warmer and may even hit the 70’s later this week (which should be about 120 on John’s thermometer). Oh yea, bring it on.
