First Time for Everything

Well, we just arrived at Lake Tawakoni SP here in Texas and I'm going about setting up coach.... Levelers, open slides, plug in electric and open the door on the water hook up and out falls a 3' snake.... Must admit, I did some pretty quick high stepping getting out of his/her way..... Got a stick and escorted it to the woods ..... Been MHing for 40 years and never had that before.... Lesson learned...

DW and I watched a 4' long Texas Rat Snake slithering across our yard early this week. It went to our TT parked under a shed. We watched it climb (is that a good enough verb?) up the steps - gave DW the willies. The last we saw, it was crawling over the tops of the tires.

I'm not sure where it went... hoping not to see it again!

Mr. Dan....

I'll bet you have a "snake in the camper"...... At least he'll keep the mice under control... Be sure to check under the covers because they like warm places....

That'll wake you up real quick.

That looks like a really nice state park, going to add it to the must visit list. How's the fishing there?
