Friends recommended an RV park in the center of downtown which would have been great, but there were no available spaces for another month. RV Park #1 recommended Lone Star RV further south -- and we got one of their last spots. What's taking up all the RV spots is not the presidents and their entourages. Obviously. Instead, it's the 2014 Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas, which is some kind of motorcycle race. I guess. There are lots of "toy hauler" type rigs here at the RV park, full of motorcycles. We look a little out of place with kayaks on our tow car.
Anyway, we arrived in Austin yesterday, went to lunch, bought groceries at the local HEB (Steve and Norma introduced us to HEB -- a Texas and northern Mexico food store chain started in 1905 in Kerrville, TX, and named for the founder's youngest son Howard E. Butt, who later took over the business). Then we wandered around the RV park and that was about it.
Before we left San Antonio, however, we did some kayaking on the San Antonio River and spent more time with SLC friends Steve and Norma.
