Thursday, March 17, 2016, Maverick Ranch RV Park, Lajitas, TX, 41.3 Miles, 5,151 Miles for the Trip

After being nervous about Spring Break and the availability of campsites, I made a reservation at what I thought was a good distance away. Unfortunately, Lajitas is only about 40 miles from the park, so it was a short day on the road. This is a large full hookup campground; I'm in site 34. The place was empty until around noon when 31 Class A RVs showed up. I think I caught the name of the group - Red River Rovers. The campground WiFi was fast until they showed up, at which point it completely lost its connection to their internet provider. Unfortunately, while I have a good Jetpack signal, it is roaming on some other network than Verizon, & my plan does not allow roaming. Strangely, my iPad (which is also on Verizon) has no problem making a connection, although it is so slow it is unusable. So, last night's photos of the sunset at the Window & a few of the trailer under the stars will have to wait. As to the Window photos, it was a lousy sunset so the ones I took from the campground the night before last are better.

The campground had individual rooms for showers, which is nice, but not a lot of room for your stuff while you shower. A large pool, but according to the kids in it, very cold.

I sat outside after lunch, being entertained by a diesel pusher that decided to stop with the engine aligned 10' from my site, then left it running for over a half an hour. Not sure why since he eventually moved into a site. No idea if he was part of the group.

While every once in a while a piece of email slips through on the campground WiFi, I can't see a web page or post, so I doubt this will get posted today. If I wake up at 4:00AM, maybe then! I managed to post at 11:00, so I don't have to get up at 4:00AM!

Dinner was a chicken patty sandwich & the rest of the rice from yesterday.

Until the next internet connection -
