My step sister Teresa lives in Texas with her husband Chris. We met this morning and ate at Cracker Barrel. I looked on Google maps and found the place on the map. Funny thing, we follow the directions and there’s no Cracker Barrel anywhere. Teresa finally calls and tells me we’re nowhere close. Goddamn modern technology. Finally, we find the ramp and then the restaurant. Breakfast was good and the company was outstanding. We talked about a number of different things, and we spoke of my birthfather Joe. My God, I’m just like him.
After breakfast we went back to camp for a minute, then we drove north on I-35 to the Camping World between San Antonio and Austin. Marie and I have been talking about when we upgrade, and I think we found our winner. Thor makes a gas Class A toy hauler that I really like, the Outlaw 37RB. Camping World didn’t have any, but when we got home we looked online and found a few. There’s a dealer on I-35W just after the I-35 split outside of the DFW Metroplex. A week from Monday we will be driving that way on our way to Smithville, so we may make a stop. The 37RB has a garage with patio, sleeps 8, has a loft that we would use as storage and a whole host of goodies that we fell in love with. I can’t wait to take a peek. The Camping World in Boulder CO has a couple of used ones to look at. I crunched numbers and a $100k loan over 15 years is almost $800 a month. We can’t afford that until Marie gets on Social Security in 2.5 years. So, that’s what we are waiting for.
