- I purchased "Sadie''s House On Wheels "in late 2007 and loved traveling in a motor home so much that I went on the road full time in late 2008. I started writing this blog to help me remember all the wonder places I have been and it allows me to share those places with my family and friends. Summer of 2013 I decided to hang up the keys for a while and moved back into my stick house. After nearly two years, I am on the road again.

March 15-19, Lakehills, Tx
We left Big Bend National Park a day early and headed for the "Hill Country" of Texas via the towns of Sonora and Kerrville. The Hill Country encompasses a large area near San Antonio and includes little towns such as Bandera, Helotes, and Fredricksburg . We headed for the Thousand Trails campground on Medina Lake near the little community of Lakehills near the heart of the Hill Country, about 40 miles from San Antonia. Joel made an exception to his "no planning/no reservation rule" and actually made reservations, although now we would be arriving two days early.
It was a good thing reservations were made because by the middle of the week, when we arrived, the campground was pretty full of families enjoying Spring Break. This is a very large campground with several sections with lots of camp sites; some with full hookups and some with just water and electric. The water and electric sites are closest to the lake and full of boaters and the majority of them were full. We chose a full hook up site only because there was a clear line for the satellite dish. Most of the sites were heavily treed and shady.
Once we got settled we headed into San Antonio for grocery shopping at Costco and Sam's Club. We haven't done any real grocery shopping since Tucson, the the fridge and cupboards were getting pretty thin. We also checked out the little cowboy town Bandera, which will be our next destination for the SI dance rally at the the beginning of April.
The campground has lots of trails to explore and we have been taking advantage of them. Deer are abundant and don't seem afraid of humans, although I have noticed they do scattered when people are out walking their dogs. I'll share some pictures of them later.
Recently, Joel purchased a new cooking appliance. With the weather warming up, he thought it would be a good idea to do some of the baking outside and not heat up the RV. I, on the other hand thought it was a good idea because we wouldn't need to be hooked up to power or run the generator.
