well, I really screwed up this trip !
1st - I didn't realize that this is a long weekend (another postal service workers day off on Monday) so when we got to Lake Somerville SP we were disappointed to see that the sites we'd checked out on Wednesday were occupied - and then, to top it off, the whole park was reserved (didn't realize SPs could take reservations - thought only ya couldn't reserve individual sites)
the gal checked the "other" location and said there were some sites available but I didn't want left-overs so I decided to head on home (a little over 2 hours driving)
2nd - we got only a couple of miles out of the park when a fellow in a pickup truck passed us and flagged us to a stop - said one of the tires on the right side was shreading - sure enough, it was ! So, got that changed and decided to head into Brenham and get 4 new tires at Discount Tire - did that, had lunch there then drove on home
so, camping trip #2, in the new tt with the new truck, turned out to be a big pile of #2 (tho blowing the tire might have been a blessing - now have 4 new ones, the quality of which I'm confident.....Bill
