Hidden Valley RV Park, Von Ormy, TX May 7

Wednesday, May 7, 2014
Dilly, Texas - Buster’s Gate 74 degrees and mostly cloudy to 89 degrees and mostly sunny. Very slow to clear today still hazy at one in the afternoon.

Very busy morning with the move out and more of a picture show today. As these pices of the rig were moved away from each other there was more cleaning or pressure washing that was done to the areas that were not previously accessible.

About two the company man showed up at the gate to collect the equipment we had here and we were released from the gate. Finished packing Buster and started the three mile drive to the paved road. As I readied to depart the retractable electric steps would not retract. Not wanting to spend the time with troubleshooting them now I would drive with them out and give that condition special consideration as I drove to the campground.
All the parts still in place
Now going one mile before meeting another vehicle going the other direction I slowed (from eleven miles per hour) as we were about to pass each other the other driver (one of the guys from our gate area) stopped me to advise me the steps were out. I related the condition and continued to the paved road ant normal speed twelve miles per hour on the dirt road. Turning onto the paved road there was new road repair construction one lane traffic just ahead and concern with the steps out. It was a tight mile and it was only a short wait until it was our turn to go, staying clear of the orange cones. A quick stop for diesel fuel  for Buster $3.699 per gallon at H E B in Pearsall then the remainder of our trip today.

Hidden Valley RV Park, Von Ormy, TX (southwest San Antonio) for a few days.  Total trip today ninety-two miles for Buster mostly on interstate thirty-five. After parking and setting up we treated ourselves to dinner our and stopping in a super walmart for a few things. Been a while since we were near a super not really shopping as we were tired from a long day, just gathering essentials.
