I'm in Blanco, TX, now. Actually about ten miles out in the country side, but the address is Blanco. Had a heckuva rain and thunderstorm this morning. When I finally peaked out the door-side awning
support post had slipped and the awning
was all catty-corner. No damage apparently. I had been trying to cure myself of tightening the knob TOO much and evidently didn't tight it enough. When I first came out I thought the post had dug itself into the ground from the furious rain! And, oh!, the tenacious Texas mud. It has a life of its own.
Tomorrow morning I'm going to the Austin Farmer's Market with my hosts. Their booth is Texas Specialty Cut Flowers, so if any Austonians (?) drop by, it will be fun to meetcha. (I'll be the guy with the camera.) And the flowers will be especially good, too.
Last night was my 46th from home. This trip has definitely given me some insights into the "sustainability" of the Casita
lifestyle. I hope to share some of those notes when I finally get home (on the 17th) and can transfer them from my laptop.
By the way, the gray tank seems to take FOREVER to drain. May I assume that everyone has the same problem? I even ramp up the starboard side when draining. That seems to help, but it's a pain when there is someone behind you wanting access to the dump.
I'm stopping at Rice Monday morning on my way to my next stop (the last before home) in Tennessee. Nothing major, but I have a few questions plus a coupla parts to buy (broke both front running lights
on gravel roads) and would like to take the factory tour again if possible.
That's it for now. Happy holiday, everybody.
