I guess we are all in this together, not too many places to hide from the cold weather.

Waiting..... There are several things I wanted to do this month, but the cooler weather has messed up my plans.

I was thinking about moving south, along the coast or maybe even over to Big Bend for a week or two. I want to be back in San Antonio for Christmas, so now I will just stay put instead of traveling in this cruddy weather.

After checking out the 10 day forecasts, I don't see anywhere worth traveling to. I have read reports of icy roads and lots of wind along the highways. No way am I driving in that. Florida is too far to go and then come back for Christmas.

So now I wait... to go to the Winnebago dealer/service center in Kerrville, TX (the roads around hill country have been icy).

I wait... to ride my bike along the river trail to the San Antonio Missions.

I wait... to go back to a little village of shops to pick up a few Christmas presents.

When the weather is good, San Antonio is a great place for walking and biking.  I have been to the river walk area downtown. I also like the Mission Trail which goes along the river, starting downtown heading south past five Missions, part of the National Park System. (see the link above)

And I really should wash the RV again. I washed it right before I left South Padre, but it needs it again.

I was really, really hoping for warmer weather in San Antonio. 

I visit with the kids and play with Sophia (which is a good thing, but it will be hard not seeing them for a few months at a time while I am workamping and traveling). So, I spend a lot of time indoors reading and planning future trips and future workamping jobs.

Sophia likes Santa

I am also waiting... for news about a job for January-April.  It is not a typical workamping job, so I had to find a RV park close to the job site. This particular RV park has an application process for monthly renters, so I am waiting to hear back from them. I can't take the job unless I can get into that park.

What are you waiting for?
