GPS… Not Always the Best Directions

Today we say goodbye to New Braunfels, Texas. We have really enjoyed the Hill country so it is with mixed feelings that we leave.  We were able to spend quite a bit of time with family and friends and we saw sights in the area.  It was a very quiet campground and a pretty area.

We decided we would take Texas "Farm to Market" roads to the new campground in Willis.   The roads were good—but they were crazy narrow!  The other challenge we have found in Texas… to get to anywhere in the state the “Farm to Market” roads are the road of choice.   However, these delightful little roads are not marked until you are there... and I mean RIGHT THERE!  

Let me give everyone a hint:  Do not turn a 75 foot long train at 65 mph!  Ok, I'm kidding… we did not do that; but we had to back track several times.  This day was probably our most challenging so far for me. 

We followed the GPS exactly, but it did not seem to have a clear idea of where we were supposed to be going; or specifically how we should get there.  I was so afraid we were going to make a mistake and end up in Houston.  We have had several people tell us they would drive 100 miles out of the way to avoid pulling an RV through Houston. 

I was a nervous wreck by the time we got to the campground.

We are at Bishop’s Landing Resort in Willis, Texas.  We have a beautiful view of Lake Conroe from our campsite.  Normally there would be large beach area directly to the lake from the campground—but the lake is so high the beaches are under water.  It is a nice campground, but everything in the area is wet and mushy.
