Getting the RV Ready
Man..where's a car wash when you need one?!? It took nearly three hours to wash.
A good friend suggested I create an Internet blog to keep in touch with family, friends, and to diary our long awaited, and much overdue vacation. I must admit, the very thought of learning a "new technology" repulsed me. Heck, I didn't know what a blog was, and I sure in the hell didn't know where to start.
As this is my first "blog," please don't be too critical of it's content, layout, spelling, grammar, or style. (By David)

Our goal was to leave around noon. Knowing Bruce, you know that didn't happen! Our first day's trek was around 250 miles. Which was about half of what we were shooting for. (By David)

--Split Rail RV
Lets just say it wasn't the prettiest RV Park, but at $14.00 a night, it did the trick!
Midday- We made really good time. We stopped off at a rest stop to stretch our legs, only to be welcomed by an Indian man with no shirt and man boobs. Yuck!! (By David)
Ok…what’s the thing? On route 10 heading East, there
are at least a dozen or so signs referencing “The Thing.” Take my advice…do not go! I can’t believe we paid a whole dollar to see it. Legend has it, “The Thing” is a mummified Indian woman with child. The casher at the Dairy Queen, which is conveniently located next door to “The Thing,” say’s the mummy is a fake. (By David)

We stopped off in another small town for some eats. Chewy's, also known is John Madden's favorite place to eat, has some pretty good food. We sat down next to an old timer who had guacamole running down his chin. Ahhh..the joys of aging!
How did I end up here? Somehow I picked the same RV Park (Circle Bar) Bruce stayed at the last time he did a world wind trip to Texas. That night, we saw bats flying around the light poles...eerie.

We arrive in Austin. Laura meets us later that afternoon at our RV Park.

Barton Creek Resorts. I would not have been surprised if I saw Robin Leech taping an episode
of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous." This place is outrageous. Tuns of "Lilly White/Blue Bloods" running around in their golf carts sporting draped sweaters across their shoulders.

Laura gets sick and goes back to California. Ironically enough, we gave up our tickets for Saturday night's performance of “Wicked”, and hauled ass to get to Texas to spend time with Laura…all for nothing.

Bruce and I explored the rural areas of Texas.
