Today was our first “do absolutely nothing” day in a good while. I even resisted the temptation to dabble on my To-Do list. Jan and I just sat around the rig and caught up on a lot of our DVR’d stuff.
Medina Lake TT is pretty nice, with almost 400 sites, some heavily treed, but many others with good satellites views.
Unfortunately the coveted lakeside sites leave something to be desired.
Like a lake.
This used to be a boat launching ramp.
Due to the recent drought, this manmade 5,426 acre (18 miles by 3 miles) lake is empty, and has been since last year.
People are even driving out on the lake bed.
One thing I noticed while I was reading through the park literature is the fact that it cost to receive a package here, $2.50 for each and every one. I’ve never seen this at any RV park before, much less a Thousand Trails park.
Hope this doesn’t spread.
After lunch I got out the slow cooker and poached a bunch of chicken breasts for soups and other dishes for the rest of the week.
For dinner we made ground beef taco salads, using this seasoned hamburger meat we buy at Wal-Mart.
It comes refrigerated, but freezes well. And it really tastes good. But it also keeps from smelling up the rig by cooking hamburger inside, or dragging out the grill and doing it outside.
As much as I like eating at the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, 19 inches of snow would certainly dampen my ardor.
Really glad we’re about 500 miles south of there. Even so, it’s supposed to be 38 degrees here in Lakehills tonight, and that’s cold enough for me.
Thought for the Day:
All that is required for evil to advance is for government to do "something"
