Been a bit have not posted for awhile we had a great airstream rally 22 unites showed up with close to 60 people in attendance looks like we will have a yearly event now central TX rally, We have made new friends and were able to put faces with on line handles. After the rally it was back to work with the tube operation and it is a hit we rented out all of our tube's every weekend for the last 3 weeks now it looks like we have to buy some more tube's. The other issue we have been having it is hotttttttttt over 20 days 100 or above not use to the TX heat yet our ac went down for few days but a nice airstreamer from Wimberly gave us a replacement ac for parts so back up and cooling , We have done some modification with our vents putting fans in and the trailer is more livable now keep safe out there my friends till next time

airstream sighting

We found this little airstream at a RV store by Austin  we picked up a new set of airstream awning lights . We have our tube shack up and running I did the carving on the signs the wood used for them and the counter came from a very old and large pecan tree. Now all we need is a martini bar

 yes the blue bonnet's are up and the area around the park is greening up Juno takes me for a walk around the San Marcos river by the park

 We had some down time so a bit of grading to make a patio for the owners home at the park.
 3 hard working guys we had a 90degree day doing this work, should have waited a day drooped to 70 next day.
Safe travels my friends.

The park Pecan Park is right on the river well with a short trail from the camp sites also a walking trail and Frisbee golf along the river. notice the large sites and of course ours is the best very vintage looking ha ha.
