Hico, TX City Campground August 30, 2017


We stayed at this nice and peaceful city park from August 30 until September 11th.  Lots of shade. $25/night for W/S/E and it was 30amp/50amp service.  And you also get free Wifi which worked for us.  Pretty awesome.  You pay in town at the city office.  The park is next to a walking/bicycle trail, which they are expanding right now.  Still working on the concrete portion.  There is a nice creek that runs around the park.  Clear water.  Very shallow right now but the water is moving and you can see fish in it.  I would have fished except I haven't a license.  I'll get one someday.  I did ride my bicycle all over the trails and through this little town.  Very nice small town.  Koffee Kup was a great restaurant.We ate there twice.  This park is used by the locals frequently.  They have a section of the park with a big concrete slab next to a stage where they do exercises and aerobics.  There is a playground close so the women let the kids play while the women exercise.  Some women just walk around the perimeter of the park while the kids play.  It is really nice to hear and see kids playing on slipper slides, swings, and climbing equipment.  Just like in the old days.  There is also no road noise because we are off the beaten path.  The only noise we hear are the squirrels dropping nuts/pecans on us during the day and owls at night.  We slept with our windows open almost every night.  Pretty amazing this time of the year.


Did have one mishap.  An old camping chair gave way to me laying me gently on the ground.  It was actually in 3 separate cracks until I was totally on the ground.  The worst part was trying to get up from that position!

Catching up with our winter pictures

We spent the winter in a very small rv park (20 sites) on the south side of New Braunfels, Texas.  We had a beautiful view of a pasture filled with ponds, a few trees, and a constant rotating of some cattle.  Some were dropping calves.  At times their bawling would fill the night with atmosphere.  We really enjoyed having the cattle around us.  We sure were out of the city.  Here are a few pictures, some taken from inside the rv looking out.




We were on a hilltop and the wind seemed to always be blowing, sometimes pretty dang hard!  We rocked and rolled all winter like we were going down the highway.  We got used to it.  At least we didn't have to deal with any flying insects.  I did get stung twice by scorpions though.  Man, those things hurt.



This was a selfie that we took inside our rv on Easter morning before we went to church.
