Angel’s view from her perch.
I arrived at Leisure Resort in Fentress, TX for my next Workcamping gig yesterday afternoon. I was escorted to a site that had a tree that would block my bedroom slide. Even moving to avoid the tree, wouldn’t work, so we went to find another site. When I moved out of the site we had to move a trailer. In order to get to the new site (76) I needed to follow another road to make a wider right hand turn. My escort wanted to make sure that we avoided another trailer. The jeep that normally goes on that trailer was parked in front of the MH. When I looked in the mirror, I thought that I would miss it, but I forgot about the swing of the 5ver in back of the tires and caught the fender of the jeep. Fortunately it was only the fender, no other body damage on the jeep. However I can’t say that about the 5ver. It damaged the back panels where the back jack control, clearance light and the electrical plug connection are,as well as the panel on the slide, maybe the back corner too. Fortunately it didn’t affect the operation of said jacks and connection. I’m not sure about the back panel.
All other damage was already there and it shouldn’t be too bad to repair.
I called the insurance company and Bill at Camping World (CW) earlier today. I’ll bring pictures in to CW some time next week to find out when I can get it fixed. I think from now on I will get out and look more often than I need to.
This time it was much more upsetting than any of the others, because it shouldn’t have happened. After I got everything set up, I went over to the office to meet Sheila. We talked about what I would be doing. We’ll get all the paper work done on Monday and then she wants be to help decorate for their Halloween Weekend. If anyone is interested, there is a coupon on their website for 30% off camping for that weekend. I returned home with a bag of ice to the smell of several campfires. That was yesterday.
This morning I slept in until 7:00 am and fixed a light breakfast and took Angel for a hike on the nature trail on the south end of the park. It parallels the San Marcos River and there are parts where you can access the river and dogs can go in, as they are not allowed in the camping part. We stopped and talked to three girls that were trying to tire out their dog, playing fetch, throwing sticks into the river. She was having a blast. We hiked to the end and back. There were even people tubing. They must have been crazy as the water was really, really, REALLY cold.
That’s the girls and the dog on the bank of the river.
The river near where the girls were. The beginning of the path.
About half way to the end.

A few wild flowers along the trail.
View going back down that little hill. Almost home.
After a short nap, we went into San Marcos to Wal-Mart. I needed eggs and a few other thing that I was nearly out of.
I hope you enjoyed the hike.
Thanks for visiting
