The start this morning was not early but the Team rolled out a bit after seven. Traffic was light all the way back to Rockport. This will be our location until the VA doctor appointments are finished in early August (I hope).
As we rolled comfortably south the thunderstorms hit us again and again. For a few minutes it would pour down very hard. Then in a few hundred feet it would be bright sun and very hot. The temperature outside varied on the Truck thermometer from 81 to 96 depending on the moment. It was a constant fiddle with the AC controls. Freeze one minute and fry the next.
When we crossed Copano Bay Bridge the goofy weather was over. Now all we had was severe sun and mid 90s temperatures. The humidity was around 600% when the Team pulled into our new campsite. The old site did not get shade and my choice of it was not the best. During the last few days before the surfside trip, the shade was mapped carefully on many sites. Site 29 is my new choice for the summer time. It gets shade for all but three hours all day long.
Here the Team is situated in the new site. Notice all the beautiful shade for the Castle. It should help some on the cost of cooling.
Now seems like a good opportunity to answer a question from this blog. The reader wanted to know my style of how the utilities were hooked up. One thing done as often as possible is to keep the electrical cord and hose off the ground. That way the weed eaters can cut the grass without cutting my cords or hoses. The sewer is always put in some roof gutter materials and propped to slope the correct direction.
A prop to get the water and electrical up will be installed tomorrow.
Usually only the back stabilizers are put down. Between the front jackstand and the back stabilizers the Castle is steady enough for my needs. And we all know my needs are to try to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
