Foolish Planning

Adventure Location:  Decatur, Alabama

The rain continued all day sometimes gently, sometimes harder and it was cold rain. The highest temp we noticed today was 63 and that was chilly running into the Mexican food restaurant in the cold rain. Virtually the entire day was spent deciding about travel plans.

The end result was we plan to leave Decatur at the end of October and head back into Texas to spend some time roaming the parts of that state (former country) that are warmer than most areas. The expected return to Decatur is not earlier than late April and not later than right after the Fourth of July.  

For the rest of the time in Decatur, when not playing with grandkids we, plan on putting serious wear on the golf course next door to the campground. And that is normally a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun.

  1. You must be feeling better if Mexican food appealed to you. We are quite fond of the Big Bend area ourselves.

  2. I have spent a lot of my life messing around hiking and biking in the parks of Big Bend and the Guadalupes north of there too. Not to forget the Davis Mountains in between them.

  4. Moving around is a good thing and wearing out the golf coarse too much fun as well.

  5. Don't drive too fast! Here in Central Texas the highs are moving back to the mid 90's for the next 10 days and the humidity is climbing. Summer is not quite over here yet. (dang-it!)

  6. Won't be in that area before November 1. It is usually pretty good in your area then.
