Bridget the Airstream Arrives at Goose Island State Park

Just a few more photos of the wildflowers in the Texas Hill Country.

We did indeed go out and take more flower photos in the Hill Country. The spot the rancher told me about was absolutely breathtaking. I wish I could do these locations justice with my photos but it’s just not possible. 

These are a couple of my favorites. I’m so glad I was able to be here for this abundant spring bloom. 

I booked us into a little state park near Rockport, TX for four nights. Rockport was where hurricane Harvey came ashore two years ago and is still in recovery.  The day we arrived the humidity was 93%. I thought I was going to die. 

This park only has back in sites and the sites have water and electric only. There are no sewer connections. 

I fretted and worried for days before our arrival because I knew I’d have to back Bridget into her site… alone. The afternoon I arrived there were two men standing on my site. I thought quickly and recruited them to spot me while I backed in. Whew! Potential crisis averted. 

Murphy doesn’t do humidity either. Poor guy needs a haircut and bath. 

Bridget has a 38-gallon gray water tank. That means over the four days I’ll be here I can’t use more than 38 gallons of water for showering, dishes, brushing my teeth, washing my face, etc. 
I knew it would be a challenge but I wasn’t expecting the oppressive humidity. 

I’m happy to report I am officially 72-hours in and I’m at 31% of capacity in the gray tank. That’s 11.75 gallons overall and just under 4 gallons per day. This is really useful information for when I camp with no hookups at all. As a side note, I have been showering and I don’t stink!

This is the Big Tree. Yes, that’s the name. This is a 1,000-year-old oak tree. 

We’ve been to see the big tree a few times because it’s just fun and there aren’t many people there. Murphy loves the place. When someone else does come by he considers himself the official greeter. 

The humidity is significantly lower now and it’s much more comfortable here.

  1. Thank you! I'll consider myself a successful backer-upper when I can do it myself without having a stroke before and during the actual attempt.

  2. Love the pictures of the wildflowers, well done. I hate humidity too. Don't think I would have survived. Congratulation on backing up the "cloud". You will get better the more you do it.
