Back to By the River RV in Kerrville

Driving west from College Station, Randy (our Rand McNally RV GPS) wanted us to drive through the south end of Austin, Texas on Hwy 290 and we’d been there and done that so we over-ruled him.  Lots of traffic and being a Saturday would be worse with soccer moms everywhere and shoppers.  So we drove through San Marcos and New Braunfels on Hwy 46 just north of San Antonio onto I-10 west.  We made it into Kerrville and By the River RV Park by 3 PM.  We ended up with a wide spot with a large Mesquite tree shading our west side so were really pleased.  Good to see our friends Tom & Katherine from last year’s stay in Idaho who are work campers here.  After setting up we joined them and drove into town for a great catfish dinner at Lakehouse Restaurant.  They do a good job and we discovered that this used to be a Catfish King’s location so the current owners have carried on a good tradition.  Afterwards we drove on Main Street (Hwy 27) east to place called the Wagonmaster where they restore and sell Older Willys and Jeep Wagoneers, known as Woodys.  They do many restorations and are almost a museum for this unique vehicle group.  Amazing guys who had a dream!  Check them out and their inventory at:  We are constantly amazed at the resourcefulness of average Americans.
