Atascosa RV Park Pleasanton, Texas - Sept 8

Monday, September 8, 2014
Atascosa RV Park Pleasanton, Texas  - 73 degrees and partly sunny to 97 degrees and mostly sunny.

Bonnie and I were up early as our portable air conditioner was making a horrible noise when bonnie shut it off. We pried it open carefully and found the exhaust blower was bad and the coils in the bottom plugged with dirt. We made plans and got to Lowes in San Antonio to replace that portable air conditioner. Idylis portable air conditioner from Lowe's 12,000 BTU, remote control, three speed fan.

Getting that done there was important as I got a telephone call (after I got the new portable air conditioner operating) for a new gate starting eight AM tomorrow morning and we could go there this afternoon. There were other things we needed to do but we headed to the new gate. It was a forty eight mile drive there from the RV park thru Pleasanton to the new gate north of Tilden.

We are here on a paved road, two miles north of Tilden with real electric (no generator, we are “on the grid”) and sewer, but the well water is not good. No dirt roads to deal with on this gate. Ok the road in to the well area is dirt but we do not have to drive that.

Buster at Tilden Gate

They are bringing a portable tank of water in the morning. Tonight we use the water on Buster that I filled at the RV park. It was a good thing I made sure Buster’s water tank was full before we left there. As we needed showers before we went out to dinner, last chance for ten days, unless the gate job extends beyond that expected date. On "the grid" we also have a regular street light.
