It is hard to believe that we have been in the Bryan/College Station Texas area for a month now but it is true! Tomorrow is our last day here and today we will begin our preparations for our move westward. We have really enjoyed our stay as visitors instead of residents to this area. Becoming reacquainted with the town, its restaurants, and our friends has been truly enjoyable.
I am still struggling in determining our future route out west since I would like to stay south as long as the heat isn’t too unbearable. But this time of the year is dicey at best with regard to temperatures that fluctuate wildly in the desert southwest. So we will most likely play it ear quite a lot as we slowly crawl west.
What I hope to do is leave here in the morning and go to the Colorado River RV Park just west of Bastrop, Texas. Then we will make a drive into Austin, Texas where we will be picking up the grandkids to take them on a last campout before we leave. From Bastrop I am not sure where we will go as much of it will be determined by the 5-10 day weather forecast in west Texas.
The hope is that the weather cooperates and allows us to visit the Big Bend region or if not,fate we may end up at Guadeloupe Mountains National Park in the northern part of the trans-pecos region of Texas. We hope to be able to visit a friend in Albuquerque, New Mexico but where we go from there remains unknown. The only knowns are that we will spend late summer in Oregon and we will spend the winter in either the Palm Springs, CA or Tucson, AZ area. We shall wait and see what fate has to offer us at that time…
