After laying low for 4½ months I’ve finally hit the road again! In the meantime, I dug into my wallet a bit and upgraded B to a new 4-season 5th wheel trailer. Lotsa research led me to the Grand Design Reflection 337RLS. It has a very similar floorplan as B but adds a slide-out in the bedroom for more floor & closet space and a larger bath (especially the shower!). Plus, the basement is heated so freezing temps aren’t an issue—except for the massive amounts of propane I seem to have been burning the past few weeks in Grapevine.
Today was an easy 3-hour scoot down I35 to Mother Neff State Park, with the namesake of one of my favorite ladies: Isabel! Landed a beautiful campsite—one of the nicest. From here I’m going to Austin to visit the state capitol (have heard the building is kinda cool) then through the Texas Hill Country, out west to Big Bend National Park, then to the Phoenix area for some favorite pastime spring training, and then as far west as Las Vegas to visit my cousin Pam & Bill. Brad & Jonathan are joining me in Arizona; Julie is catching up in Vegas. Then I’ll be back in G’Vine for Easter and a couple weeks of pre-hot north Texas, before heading back to the Rocky Mountains in mid-May.
Feels good to be hitting the trail again. Glad to have you tag along!
