Leaving Medina Again

Tomorrow we will have to pack up and leave The Farm Country RV Park and return home. We got out here this past Sunday and were only able to stay until Friday due to commitments back home. We will leave the camper here and return in March for a couple of weeks and then take the camper home. That will be the end of our six month stay. We will return again in October.

This has been a nice few days here in the Hill Country. They got a little rain this week but only a little. This part of Texas is in desperate need of a lot of rain. It is as dry here as I think it has ever been. They are in the mist of a severe drought! However, the last few days have really been nice. The mornings are a little cool but it warms up nicely during the day.

We were fortunate to be here this week for the anual bean soup supper provided by one of the camp residents. He makes several large pots of the soup and although about 30 to 35 folks show up, there is always a lot left over. Other people bring side dishes that go with the soup. I made the cornbread from the recipe that can be found on my website (Dan’s Cornbread). It is really a good recipe and everyone who eats the bread likes it. I always get lots of compliments when I make it.

Last night we went into Bandera, about 8 miles south of us, and went to the 11th St Bar. Every Wednesday night is steak night with a twist. You bring your own steaks and cook them on the very large pits that the owner has set up. For 4 dollars you get all of the sides that go with the steaks with the exception of your drinks. It has become a very popular event and there is always live music provided by some of the local talent. After you eat, you can hang around for the music and dance. A lot of the people from this campground go every Wednesday night.

Today I drove into Bandera with my camera in hand thinking that I might take pictures of a couple of the campgrounds close to town. After driving through them, I decided not to take pictures. The sites in both campgrounds were mostly side by side and were very narrow and close together. They just seemed very cluttered to me. I decided when I started my website, that I would not write up and recommend campgrounds that were not appealing. Both of these campgrounds are Good Sam parks, but I wouldn’t stay in either of them. Visit my website, This Old Campsite, to see the type of campground that I recommend.
