LOCATION: In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Cold in AM, warmer as we drove south
We awoke to freezing temperatures. It was hard to believe that it got so cold overnight, as it was a sunny 90 during the day. I had left my herbs out, and now am afraid that they might have frozen.
The weather forecast changed, to be overcast and cool (50s) in the Hill Country, today, so we decided to head south. We drove about 400 miles, through San Antonio (not pleasant). It is one of the fastest growing cities in the US, and we were on the most congested highway going straight through it.
As a contrast, once we left the city, we traveled on desolate roads. We saw a bar aptly named “Bar in the Middle of Nowhere”. We stopped in a good, authentic Texas BBQ joint for lunch.
We made it home by 6:00, and started unloading the Airstream. We may take it for another short trip in March, before we go to Seattle and Mexico. We had wanted to go to a nice Army Corps of Engineers park near San Antonio, but it was booked up. Since holiday weekends cause full campgrounds, I’m going to start working on Memorial Day Weekend reservations. We will be on our way to Ohio for the Airstream rally called Aluminapalooza.
DINNER: Using some of the leftover rotisserie chicken, I made an Asiann chick/veg stir-fry and served it over Japanese udon noodles.
