I'm just up the road from you up the Eastex, and truthfully, we've done pretty well here with the rain. But it is good to hear out in the Hill Country that they're getting some too. They need it a lot worse than we do, especially Lake Medina, Lake Travis, and others in that area.

Your truck should have no problem handling that trailer.

You're correct. When we got there, it was dry and hot. But then

Welcome... we were at Guadalupe River SP the same weekend. It rained a lot Saturday night... and there were tent campers around us. We heard some grumbling the next morning. We had one couple stop by and told us they were long-time tenters but had enough of it, and asked a lot of questions about our TT. It is so nice to be off the ground, dry, and warm... or cool... as the season dictates.

Enjoy your new toy!
