Belton Lake, TX

View Our Journey on Meike Carter's travel map.

We stayed in San Antonio for 5 nights to spent time with Michelle and Peyton .
Another hurricane approached Mexico and pushed a cold front up into Texas. We had an overnight drop of 40 degrees. That morning Tony stepped out of the coach wearing the usual, tank top and shorts, and came right back in. I thought he was exaggerating, so I went outside. Wowza, it was freezing cold! We had no Winter clothes packed, because they were all stored away in Temple, TX.
We timed it just right, headed out that morning and made the 3 hour drive to Belton.
We reserved a spot on the Army Corp of Engineers campground for a week. We had to go thru all our boxes , find our Winter clothes and take care of our 27 ft. Travel trailer.
It rained a week straight with temperatures around 40. Not suitable to go thru a storage unit , because we had to move boxes outside to inspect and then restack. Finally, on day 7 the sun came out and temperatures climbed. We spent hours organizing our stuff. I was getting overwhelmed and realized that I couldn't care less about the majority of crap in there. Even though we sold all our furniture in June, we still had a ton of boxes. We made sure to take tools needed for the RV. Space heaters, our North Face boots, Mermot Jacket, extra Coralle plates and cups and kitchen supplies. We had to be very careful which items to choose, only the must haves were picked. We noticed that less is more. Pick the most important items that are of great quality and call it good. You will always go back to the same few items when you travel. They work and it makes life easier. Don't get lost in stuff and fill every inch. Most of the time you have no idea what is stored in the back on a shelf, if you don't use it on a regular basis.
We took care of the storage issue, next was...what to do with our old little gutted travel trailer???
Originally we planned on gutting and remodeling our 27 ft Grand Surveyor, but parking her out in the elements was costing us and wasn't good for the camper either.
It needed a good home!
I asked my friend Jennifer if she was interested in a big project and she did not hesitate. Happily she picked it up and towed her away.
We were excited to help out a Family that loved the outdoors as much as we do.
With all our errands done in Belton, it was time to start our new Journey!
