THANK GAWD I HAVE AN EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT !!
I’m near blind looking on a gazillion websites trying to find a cheap, safe and nice place to stay.
I’ve been on the road now for 11 days and have driven about 1,250 miles so far – still got over 3,500 to go !!!
But it’s high time and well overdue for a STOP !!
I gave my EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT a ‘challenge’ to get me all the way home without having to pay anything for ‘campground’ fees. Well she rose to this challenge in fine style, however, we both learned very quickly that once you are out of Arizona boondocking is not so easy to find – actually near IMPOSSIBLE would be a better word.
She did find this gorgeous little gem of a Park in small town Junction, TX – AND it’s right on a Lake. What a bonus. AND all of this for the incredibly low price of FREE !!
I got myself snugged in around some trees when I first pulled in there because the winds were HOWLING. I was hoping for some protection.
Met a really nice couple from Quebec (the Class C parked in the pic). They also are heading East – slowly – very slowly.
Ben and I took a little stroll to check out the PERFECT spot here to spend a week or more.
Sniffing – Sniffing -- Sniffing….
YES MOM !! YES MOM !! This is the spot !!
Got settled back in the rig for the night and cranked up the computer. NO INTERNET ACCESS !!! I just couldn’t believe it.
I knew I couldn’t stay anywhere where I didn’t have Internet access. CRAP
So the search continued and a quick overnight in Kerrville was necessary.
Today while driving to my new location I see the big HARLEY DAVIDSON sign. But I was on the opposite side of the Highway. A quick gear shift into ‘U-TURN’ and in no time I was there. A moment in history happened at this particular location. I CAME OUT EMPTY HANDED !! That is a first for sure. Does that mean that I already have TOO MUCH stuff ?? NAW !!!
The drive today was NERVE RACKING to say the least. Why does my EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT make me FANCY MAPS that take me through MAJOR CITIES !!?? Or better yet, Why do they put a major Interstates right smack dab in the middle of a major city !!?? The traffic was flying – there were more overpasses and underpasses – and merging and exiting. Branch off here – merge on there. I did miss one ‘branch off’ but managed to get myself turned around within a mile.
The end result was worth it though. A major score here I feel.
Scoped out the area and at first I thought I was going to settle in right up there at the peak. But after observing for awhile I realized that it was the ‘popular’ spot for the locals to fish during the day.

Got myself nicely snuggled in….
Major fishing happening here. If I keep finding these ‘fishing’ places I’m just gonna have to start fishing myself. Well the fishing part would be ok, but I wouldn’t be able to take (or see) the poor little fishes on that hook.
Doesn’t appear that Texas has any restrictions (like Arizona) with the number of fishing poles one person can have in the water ??
Can’t get much closer to water huh – and Bennie approves.
We’re in for some really NASTY weather for the next day or two. It actually just started a few minutes ago. 30MPH wind gusts and thunderstorms. The sky is black. I’ll likely have to bring in my slides soon.
But I’m glad to be off the road.
