I left Kerrville this morning kind of early before the winds picked up and moseyed on down to Hondo Texas. It may be useful to know that Texans mosey a lot so since I'm going to be in Texas for the winter I figure that I should mosey just like they do. And since I'm never in a hurry to get anyplace, I figure that I can mosey with the best of them.
I got to the escapees RV Park that's called the "Lone Star Corral" which is actually about 6 or 7 miles from Hondo and is deep in farm and ranch country. Hondo is a bigger town than I thought it would be and actually has a Walmart supercenter, and just about any other store that you would need.
I checked in and got a Boondocking spot for five dollars a night, and since the policy here is you don't have to pay until you leave, I can just wake up every morning and decide whether I want to stay another day or not without any pressure to have to re-up.
The folks in the office did try to talk me into staying for Thanksgiving explaining to me what a huge spread they put out and it did sound tempting. but I don't know, I might stay that long or I might leave Monday I'm not sure.
The Internet is great here that's always a plus for me, and everybody's been very friendly, but that's expected when you're at an Escapees Park, it's not that far to go shopping and that'll save some gas money. But there are some train tracks nearby and the faint hope that it was an abandoned line that hadn't been used in 20 years quickly went out the window when the first train came by within 15 minutes of me getting here. So far today there's been four or five trains go by and I'm really hoping they don't do that all night. The train itself is not noisy, in fact I can barely hear it, it's all the horn blowing that's the real problem and that's hard to ignore.
