Six more weeks of winter weather. . .

Well, what can I say? Punxsutawney Neal has spoken. This morning we awoke to a chilly 22 degrees here in Kerrville, Texas. Neal poked his head out of his hut which has blankets thrown over it for insulation and a fuzzy fabric flap to keep him warm at night. He looked around and rushed back in. My guess is he is ready to head back down to the Rio Grande Valley where we will be enjoying warmer temps at this point in the year.

We have had a fun time here in Kerrville. We were here for the RV.net Sweetheart Rally and several of us stayed over because it's hard to say goodbye to friends. One of our friends drive this big HDT and tow a Grand Junction fifth wheel. Their smart car fits right behind the cab. Quite the setup. We also had two RV.net moderators who attended and it was interesting to sit and talk with them over dinner last night. The restaurants here in town are sure going to miss our group because we have eaten out every day. Hah!

Yesterday we drove in to Gibson's store which is kind of a general store that has everything you could ever want. I never buy much but it is an interesting store to wander through. When we left there, we drove out to Hunt and viewed the Stonehenge site. It is a one-third scale replica of the real thing. It is interesting because it actually looks like Stonehenge with all the stones in place. There are also two Easter Island statue replicas. The area around Kerrville is very hilly and a beautiful place. . . if it was just a little warmer in the winter, it would be a nice place to stay. Summers are usually milder than south Texas, which would make it ideal in the summer.

Well, we are getting ready to move today. It's a six hour drive and we want to get started as soon as we get around.

Till next time. . .
