We drove 377 miles west today. We broke the 330 rule (i.e. drive no more than 330 miles or no later than 3:30 in the afternoon), but there aren’t a whole lot of choices once you leave San Antonio on I-10. We did see a billboard advertising caverns in Sonora, but we blinked and missed the town.

We stayed “off base” at the Blue Angels Campground on Bronson Road. This area includes a primitive campsite as well as, Anchor Cove and Battlecreek Row. Anchor Cove ($14) has 83, 30 amp/water sites on packed sand. The area is on Perido Bay and … Continue reading →
We woke to rain and squalls. A friend called and warned us about winds. But after orienting our sticks and bricks renters to our home, we hit the road at 11am just as the rain was beginning to subside. Frankly, I was a bit anxious. I’ve been looking at the weather on line for over a month now, worried that things may not go as planned.
