Moving Day in Whitsett . . .

Today was moving day here at the Whitsett yard. A 5’er pulled out this morning heading for their new gate, so after double-checking with the office, we moved our rig over to the full hookup area. So now, we also have water and sewer, as well as the 50 amps we had before. We’ll be here until we go out to our gate, probably sometime this coming week.

We’re parked backed up to a scrub brush area, complete with a lot of cacti.

And a lot of blooms.

After we moved, I was talking to Terry here at the lot, asking about some of the utility setups. This large tank is used to deliver water to the individual gates. It holds enough water to fill up three individual tanks.

I also asked about the capacity of the diesel generators that are on the trailers.

Gate Guard Lot 6

I did notice that each one has 2 – 50 amp receptacles, 2 – 30 amp, and 2 – 20 amp ones. Terry said the generators are rated for 13KW intermittent, and 11KW continuous. In comparison, the Onan diesel generator in our rig is rated for 7.5 KW.

Terry said that occasionally gates are so busy that two rigs with two couples are parked at a gate, and the one generator is capable of supporting both.

Later, about 2:30 we headed into San Antonio to have dinner at another of our favorite places, La Fonda on Main.

La Fonda 1

Opened in 1932, it’s the oldest Mexican restaurant in San Antonio. Over the years, a lot of famous people have eaten here, including Generals Eisenhower, MacArthur and Hill. Even American presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson enjoyed La Fonda’s fare. And movie stars like Gary Cooper, John Wayne, Yul Brenner, Veronica Lake, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans have all dined here.

We’ve been eating here since the early 80’s.

I had the La Fonda Platter with 2 cheese enchiladas, a pork tamale, and a beef tenderloin taco. All very delicious.

And for dessert, Jan and I split probably the best Tres Leches we’ve ever eaten. It was so good, we got another one to go.

Brandi and Lowell sent over some pictures of Landon’s first Easter Egg Hunt.

Looks like a pretty good haul.

As a final note, in yesterday’s blog I talked about Bob Miller BBQ. That was a typo.  It should have been Bill Miller BBQ.

Thought for the Day:

Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never run out of material.
