Hospitality in Texas

haRVey at Faith Lutheran in Stephenville, Texas this last week.

In Texas, the acolytes wear cowboy boots!

 Our travels this winter have taken us through California and east through Arizona, New Mexico and now we are starting our northward trek through Texas. 
We always enjoy staying in campgrounds - lots of electricity, water and usually a place to run, walk and ride our bikes. 

In a Church/School parking lot -  were are usually met by a church member as we arrive and enjoy a lively chat while we set up our house, we are sometimes given a key so we can utilize the kitchen and have access to the sanctuary and set up our equipment. Just this last week: we met Phoebe, a comfort dog (who has her own facebook page!), sang for 100 preschool children, donated two items to the annual garage sale and bought four items (not the preferred way to minimize). We were guests for fabulous lunch filled with good conversation. I love my job! Campgrounds can be quieter on occasion, but for the most part we really do like to meet the people in our neighborhood.

The Laundry Chore

If you are going to carve a wooden sign - check the spelling
Well... however you spell it. 
My favorite places have swimming pools nearby so I can do laundry and swim while I wait. 
There are a number of campgrounds where the laundromat is connected to the Women's restroom/shower; and the game room is connected to the Men's restroom/shower. What?

Texas Today

All full-timers want FULL hook up (water,electric and sewer) therefore there is a lot of room on the right for those who can settle for just water and electric. 

I did not fall off the edge in California!
It has been a long pause....
We are parked at Summit Park in New Braunfels, Texas.  Yep, I jumped right over New Mexico and Arizona.

We are parked here until Saturday, when we travel to Thorndale, Texas. We are working on "projects" while the sun shines and we can work outdoors. 

Dave fixing the fender.  It is cracked in many places. Fine plastic that it is. :)
My friends in the North will appreciate how the ground looks without snow.

After several tire blowouts over the years, poor haRVeyhas taken a beating.
