Thank God For Weekends

I don’t know about you, but after a hard week of work (actually, as soon as the week starts) I’m ready to hit the road and enjoy another weekend.   If the weekend isn’t already planned, I use Texas Outside to help us find an area to explore and enjoy a weekend that involves some combination of multiple activities including: camping, biking, boating, golfing, music festivals, hiking, cruising, touring, restaurants, and more. We try to cram as many activities into the weekend as we possibly can.  Which means on Monday, it’s really hard to drag our sunburned, tired, and sore body into work!   Having done this in Texas since 1980, we have gone through four RVs, a sailboat, three ski boats, and multiple bikes, golf clubs, tennis racquets, walking sticks, and Frisbees – the good news is that we haven’t worn out or replaced the knees, elbows, or other body parts. 

Thank God For Weekends will provide you with an overview of our activities for that weekend.

What a fun time, well for some of us, chasing that golf ball through tall pines, around and in Lake Conroe, and into some huge white sand bunkers that made me think I was on the beach at South Padre Island.

Fun on the Guadalupe River and Canyon Lake

We spend five days at two different campgrounds on the Guadalupe River, boated on Canyon Lake, and did a lot of other fun things including meeting our ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!
