Here are some more photos of our get-together. We went for dinner at Cooper's Old Time Barbecue in New Braunfels, TX. No frills, but very good steak. You pick out your meat, grab a potato and they wrap it in butcher paper and put it on your tray. Women shown here (except one) all drive RVs--some smaller and some bigger than mine. Brought most of my steak and half my potato home for tomorrow.
If we all look like a bunch of old ladies, that's because we are. But all but one lady drives her own rig. A handful have small Class Bs, which are the van conversions, but all of those women still work so they do not full-time and don't need big vehicles. Most of the rest drive either big Class As, Class Cs like mine, or 5th wheeled vehicles. Several full-time like I am doing. It is nice to be able to talk about places they have gone and get campground recommendations, as well as technical advice for adapting our vehicles to meet specific needs. (Like, how do you hang something on a wall?)
So for all of my friends and colleagues who think I am brave for doing this, here are a bunch of women who are around my age and also drive really big vehicles! Some of them even tow cars or pickups behind their motorhomes! I am meeting up with another bunch of such women from this forum in Florida this winter for the same kind of get-together. A couple of people from this Texas group will be there as well.
Leaving early tomorrow morning for east Texas and then Natchez, MS, the next night. Not looking forward to two long days of driving, but I DID find an Einstein's Bagel shop a few miles out of here on my way out, so I will pick up a dozen of my favorite cranberry bagels tomorrow. Yum!
