Great spot for a base to go and come from when you give up the working thing.
Yes, this post has been a real education.

First, what I thought was going to be a monolithic slab turned into a totally awesome foundation.

I've taken 10 across West Texas to San Antonio but didn't know anything about the Hill Country. Sure looks nicer than West Texas.

Only thing that's worrying me though is I don't see those visitor trailer pads yet.

Great looking place Robert. We've spent a little time in parts of the hill country, if I were to move to TX, that'd be the area.

Drove from Austin to SA this Jan on I-35, first and last time I go there.

I-35 is really bad. The busiest interstate in the country someone told me. I think it's because of all the trucks. Duluth MN to Laredo TX...NAFTA corridor.

For me it has always been the opposite, to get away from all the busyness of life, to slow things down for a while.

Try I95 from Philadelphia to Richmond, virtual parking lot 24 hours a day
Interstate 95
Interstate 95 passes through the most densely populated part of the U.S.
I-95 crossing the George Washington Bridge in New York City; Wally Gobetz
A few stretches of interstate carry more traffic than the busiest parts of I-95, but no road in America is as consistently busy from one end to the other. I-95 runs from the Canadian border south to Miami, covering 1,917 miles and crossing through 15 states — the most of any interstate highway. According to the Federal Highway Administration, 1,040 of those miles are in urban areas, and more than 60 percent of those segments are classified as “under heavy congestion.” I-95 travels through the most densely populated region of the country in its northeast passage. More than 325,000 vehicles per day travel through the area encompassing the New York City/New Jersey/Connecticut area, making that stretch the seventh busiest in the country. It gets worse. I-95 passes through the Washington, D.C., area, another traffic chokepoint on the way to its southern terminus just south of Miami, where I-95 there rates as the sixth most-traveled section of interstate in the U.S. Florida’s 382-mile portion of the interstate is not just busy, it’s deadly — a Daily Beast study of federal data from 2004-2008 found I-95 in Florida to be the deadliest stretch of interstate highway in the U.S.

I tried it last week. DC to Quantico. Depends on the time of day, but yes, pretty bad.

Having driven I-95 many times, it is worse then 35 at rush hour. Was on 35 around starting around 10am, it seemed like a never ending rush hour. Then it started to rain.

Lost Maples SP was very nice.

House is coming along. They did the 5th punch of the framing and the inspector cleared it. Electrical and mechanicals done, low voltage done, roof done, stucco skip coat done, most of the batt insulation done, the rest will be blown once the ceilings and trays are up. Next is stonework and drywall.20180505_123510.jpeg20180505_124151.jpeg20180505_123148.jpeg20180505_123514.jpeg

You are going to have many relaxing evenings enjoying the outside area. Love the open look.
