A Very Short Season . . .

We made the move back to the Colorado River Thousand Trails. our 3rd stay since we left Galveston Bay RV Resort on Feb 24th, and hopefully our last park stay in the area before we head north.

As it stands now, we’ll leave here on May 2nd, heading up to Elkhart, IN, and then on to Goshen, IN for the 54th Escapade starting the 12th of May. We plan on making several stops along the way to visit family.

Getting into Colorado River, we had our choice of 50 amp sites, so this time we picked a site at the top of the hill in the ‘A’ section, and got a nice site overlooking the field below. I thought about pulling straight in so we would be looking out over the field from our windshield, like we overlook the bayou at the Galveston Bay park. Of course this means that we have to hook up our utilities underneath the rig, but we have long enough cords and hoses to do that with no problem. But for some reason some parks frown on this, and since I hadn’t checked it out beforehand, I decided to back in as normal.

Unlike a lot of the other sites, this one is nice and level, with a gravel pad and a concrete patio.

One thing we noticed coming up US71 and the turnoff to the park is that all the bluebonnets are just gone. And in only two weeks. Now that’s a short growing season.

We know the area hasn’t been mowed, because the Indian Paintbrushes are still there. We had thought about driving up to the Brenham area later in the week to check out the big Bluebonnet fields, but we may reconsider now.

Now that my shear pins have come in, and look to be the right ones, I’ll try to get underneath there and get it replaced pretty soon. But as before we had no problem doing it manually this morning as we left the Lake Conroe TT Park. But hopefully this morning will be the last time we have to do it that way.

We’ll see how it goes tomorrow.
