We have several days to get to Justin’s Diamond J RV Park near Tucson so we are taking our time.
Canyon Lake COE.
We stopped at Canyon Lake Corp of Engineers park north of New Braunfels, TX in the hill country. We have been here before, COE parks are nice and for seniors with a geezer pass, cheap.
View from the front window.
A very nice site.
A fellow with whom I used to fly Radio Control planes back in the 1980s lives somewhere around here and we thought we could look him up. It turned out he is about 2 hrs east of here so that wasn’t going to work.
The next day we headed to Kerrville, TX for a two night stop.
The Kerrville-Schreiner city park on the Guadalupe River is a good stop. We had plenty of time to get to Tucson so we thought a couple days here would be good.
There seemed to be another visitor from up north visiting as well.
The next day, January 29th, was Our 44th Anniversary. So we drove south to Camp Verde for lunch at the Camp Verde General Store and Restaurant.
This was an Army Post in the late 1850s. Its claim to fame was the attempt to bring camels to Texas to be transport animals for the Army. It didn’t work out so well. Today it is an event center, general store, Post Office, amazing kitchen store and a fine restaurant.
44 years. Wonderful!
We had a great lunch, brought enough home for supper. After lunch we spent some time shopping in the kitchen store and general store.
Susan found one of these holsters for whatever you put in it. It is silicone and just hangs there on its own. We got a new vegetable peeler, some napkins and a few other things. The whole store seems to have things we haven’t seen in other stores. There were some signs I liked.
A good anniversary message. Put your own picture at the top.
We are heading towards Deming, NM next with one stop along the way. It is a long way across Texas.
More later, Much Love,
Roger and Susan

Congratulations on your 44th guys.

Hi Roger and Susan: Nice to hear from you. All is well here in vung Tau Vietnam. I’ve been out riding my bike a lot, and looking for a job. Right now I have one job that I kind of like but it doesn’t pay very much. That’s okay it’s worth it. I managed to go swimming almost every day down in the ocean. Hey this is a great life. Hope you are well and I’ll talk to you again maybe on Sunday.

Good morning Roger & Sue. Reading your post I was thinking I might be that guy you flew RC planes with back in the 80s? I know I was at least one of them and I was a couple hours East of where you were so I wanted to make sure you knew Nancy & I would still love to have you drop by to visit here in Kiln MS anytime. Were about 20 miles North of the gulf coast in the country of Kiln MS. I have a 30 amp RV power connect behind my garage I used to connect my 75 freightliner race rig/motor home up to in between races so we can easily park your motor home (but no sewer). I’m retired, Nancy’s still working at John C. Stennis Space Center on the LA/MS line. There really isn’t a whole lot to see or do around here in the home Brett Favre, Red Neck Capitol (we do still have ABC busts on active stills, Kilns). The coast miles and miles of unbelievably empty beaches ( I wouldn’t go in that water though hehe) a gazillion casinos and some pretty good seafood restaurants but not really a bucket list kinda place for sure. However, if you’re on I-10 going East to Florida, you have a few hours or need to rest awhile, we are 15 miles North of I-10, we have a place to park and hook up your RV, take a dip in a pool/Spa, cook up a steak, repair your rig or just sit around and chat about Xerkon and what could have been.
Talk to you guys later,
Todd & Nancy Drummond
Because no one lives forever, the goal is to create a Mighty Mouse Nova that will.
Wow, a voice from the way back machine, more than 30 years ago. Thanks for getting in touch. Next time (it might be a while) we are heading SE we will let you know.
