I drove around Del Rio this morning and did some sightseeing and a little shopping. Most things were open like Walmart and Home Depot but a lot of places were closed, considering this Monday a holiday. The only one that really affected me though was the UPS store I was hoping I could talk to them today about getting some Amazon stuff in, but it looks like I'll have to wait a while longer.
Del Rio's not that far from the San Pedro Boondocking area, I make it about 7 or 8 miles away, which isn't too bad to be able to shop at a Walmart supercenter. I ate lunch at Rudy's barbecue while I was in town and there always a consistently good barbecue joint. I think they may be a franchise because there's a lot of them in Texas and even one in Colorado Springs, that I used to eat at when I lived in Colorado.
I also saw another one of my favorite hamburger restaurants which is Fuddruckers. Fuddruckers used to be really big 25 years ago and you could find them in a lot of places. But something happened and they started closing stores and pretty soon they got really hard to find. I always thought they did a great job and had a pretty good concept of making their own hamburger patties from aged beef, cooking it to your specification, then letting you put whatever you wanted on it from a very extensive condiment bar. I stopped by while I was in town but they were also closed for the holidays.
People started showing up here at the campground this afternoon so I'm no longer by myself. I now have three trailers and a tent as neighbors. I don't see any solar panels on their roofs so I assume I will have to listen to generators running tonight. I can only hope that there quiet little Honda generators, and not the $250 contractor generators from harbor freight that sound like a Harley engine with straight pipes. But since we RVers are a cost-conscious lot, I'm betting on the Harley.
