|Who the heck calls it: "microsleep"?|
|Yes, that is our F250 sans tailgate. Somebody stole it in June. Add that to the list...|
The campground is beautiful kept - lots of natural area between each spot, creating privacy. Huge old mature trees, and lots of moss/air plants. We had deer in our site both mornings. It was fun to watch Diesel who was completely oblivious to them until they sprang off in another direction. Needless to say, he's no hunting dog.
Saturday morning we got up (late) and dropped in at the San Felipe De Austin historical site (its less than a block north of Park Rd 38). This was the location where Steven F Austin started his colony in 1823. As RDB and I camp across the southern part of Texas, it's amazing to learn about the tumultuous times that surrounded our State's birth:
"After the fall of the Alamo, Gen. Sam Houston's army retreated through San Felipe de Austin. On March 30, 1836, the small garrison remaining at San Felipe to defend the Brazos crossing ordered the town evacuated and then burned it to the ground to keep it from falling into the hands of the advancing Mexican army. The terrified residents hastily gathered what few belongings they could carry before fleeing eastward during the incident known as the Runaway Scrape. " -http://www.visitsanfelipedeaustin.com/
