Adventure Location: Lake Amistad, Texas
The temp this morning was 58 headed down to 49. That is too cold for the OFM. After some discussion with BBob, the OFM went to the Castle to do some more serious thinking. However the mantra kept coming up in his head. “You have wheels.” The OFM finally decided about 1030 to roll south to get out of the cold that is below 55 F.
It doesn’t take him long to get ready to roll when cold is involved. The solar panel was laid down. The kayak loaded on the Truck and tied down. SightSeer was loaded in the back of the Truck and secured. Then the interior of the Castle was put into travel mode.
Over to BB to say good bye and away we went about 1115. The first hour plus was easy rolling. Then we hit the rain. It RAINED out there on highway 90, 173 and I-37. The Teams slowed down in the rain. For three hours we fought the rain and strong gusting winds. This was not one of the nice trips. The temperature kept on dropping until the Teams were south of San Antonio. The Truck outdoor temp gage dropped one more degree a few minutes after this picture was taken. Notice the rain on the windshield.
We arrived back in Rockport a little after 1800 and got set up for the night. It is 63 at 2000 hours tonight when the OFM left the Whataburger. The electric heaters are working very well. This should be a very comfortable night for sleeping.
Back on highway 90 an eating establishment was noticed. Maybe BB has been holding out on his fans. He could be a rich restaurateur.
Now for a nice warm shower, a warm bed and a good night’s sleep. It will be interesting to see what is going on down here to help with the chore of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
