Kerrville, Texas, Sweetheart Rally 2010

We arrived in Kerrville yesterday about 3:30 p.m. It was about a 6 hour drive up from the valley. We got parked on our site and set out to greet some friends. This is a rally for people who have "met" on the forums on the internet. The forum is a discussion forum for people who enjoy RVing. There is something for everyone on the forum and you can always find answers to problems you may be having or get needed information on a route you plan to take, etc.

Today we drove up to Fredericksburg to do a little browsing in the shops there. We were there for a couple hours and planned our visit so that we would be back in time for the twin 150's of Nascar. We moved the car several times as it was raining and cold so we drove closer to areas so we wouldn't have to walk in the rain. We finally decided it was time to leave and we got into the car and it wouldn't start. Grrrr. We tried and tried, but it appeared it wasn't getting gas to the engine. We called Ford, who recommended a tow service. We called there and within 15 minutes, the truck arrived. He first tried adding 5 gallons of gas to the tank, but that didn't work. We had been down to 3/8 and since we were parked on an incline, we thought maybe the gas wasn't getting to the inlet. We were towed to the Ford dealer. They believe it is the fuel filter or fuel pump, but we didn't hear anything else before we left. Kerrville is only 22 miles away, so we called some friends at the rally and they drove up and picked us up. Thanks to Ron and Betty. They may take us back up when the car is fixed, or we may just leave it there and pick it up Monday when we leave the rally. We could drive up and hook it up behind the motorhome and take off for the valley.

Once we got back to Buckhorn Lake, we went over to the "meet and greet" and then had dinner that was prepared by the park staff. It was very good and we enjoyed seeing friends we had met last year.

Till next time. . .
