On the Road Again!!

The ltlgrntruck is on the road again. We left Rockport Friday morning with hugs from our new friends—Dave and JoAnndave joann from Indiana--vanilla.  Heading north to Smithville TX and an ATHS chapter truck show –here--- we traveled through the wild flower capital ofP1020576 Texas.   Living in MI all our lives we are use to spring being green—Texas is different as most of the winter it is quite green and so spring means the wildflowers. The colors are amazing---Red, pinks, oranges, whites, yellows and of course  blue.  DSCF6947 Just beautiful every where we look.  As we pulled out of the commerce center parking lot we were flagged down by a woman in a pickup truck and she said park in the firebarn lot and follow me home.  We are having happy hour and will grille some steaks and chicken laterP1020610 What a welcome.  There were about 15 or so people there--- members of the Yellow Rose chapter.  They all welcomed us and made us feel right at home. We stayed in the parking lot overnight and early in the morning(7 am) left for the park. It was a beautiful day with about 50 trucks and 100’s of people looking. Smithville was having their Jamboree festival.  About 20 of the trucks left the park and lined up to join the parade.parade We went around and through the town with 100’s of family’s lining the streets. After the parade we headed west about 20 miles, found a campground and crashed. Sunday afternoon we let for Boerne TX and the Class of 2007 Escapees Rally. A couple of years ago some people decided to form a Birds of a Feather (BOF) group with fulltime classes--- 2005,2007 etc. So now they are having these rally’s each year.
