DSCF2935Kerrville and Buckhorn Lake Resort was the location of the NHOG Class Pix_20130430_0010 5x72013 Spring New Horizons Owners Group (NHOG) Rally. We had attended our first rally in Bushnell Florida (back in October of 2011) just months after picking up our new home. This was a much larger group of attendees, as Texas is a bit more centrally located and many full timers were making there way north from their winter hibernations. Our 'Mother' from the last rally has abondonded us in favor of a new pair of 'newbies'.

Rally’s always tend to be hectic affairs, and this was no exception. A number of very useful seminars on topics from health care, Internet/Wifi/Cellular to rig maintenance and generators/inverters/converters/batteries. I made the mistake of responding to the Rally Masters when they called out for samples of maintenance lists, sending them a rather comprehensive maintenance schedule that I had developed over the last 18 months. Their response was ‘this is great, you should present it during the maintenance seminar’. So, only my second rally, and here I am, presenting to RVers who have been doing this a lot longer than me. Go figure!

We did have 1 free day that could be used to go visit local wineries and sites, but we used it to catch up on chores and prepare a large pot of jambalaya for the last day’s pot luck dinner. I actually made 2 batches, one for carnivores and one for herbivores.

We had planned to stay 2 extra nights at Buckhorn Lake after the rally, to give us a chance to catchup on laundry and other chores that would have fallen by the wayside during the rally. On Saturday, the first day after the rally, it gave us a chance to catch up with friends, have one last social hour and a few information exchanges. Lynn spent some time with a scrapbooker and is going to make an attempt at digital scrapbooking while I spent an amount of time reviewing Microsoft Streets and Trip with one new friend and ‘iMovie and Macs in general’ with an old friend. Sunday morning, a lot of time was spent saying goodbye to fellow RVer’s who were setting off on their travels. By Sunday afternoon, the place was looking fairly deserted.

IMG_1743IMG_1750We took a side trip to Ingram Texas, about 10 minutes south of the RV park, to visit Stonehenge and Easter Island, all in the same Texas field. It didn’t quite give you the same eerie feelings of wonder and awe, but it did make for an interesting afternoon. After that, it was back to Tractor Supply for more food for the dogs.

There was some interesting work going on along I10, a new hydro transmission line was going up. The transmission line went right beside the park, so I managed to get some interesting pictures of the workers up a the top of the tower, adding cross pieces.
