Operation Winter Texan has commenced. We have spent the past two winters in Florida. This year we are giving Texas a try. We had hoped to make a little stop off in Hot Springs, AR on our way to Texas but cooler temps forced us farther south sooner rather then later. We did our first night in Texarkana, TX at the Red River Army Depot on the shores of Lake Elliott; nice campground and had the weather not been going into the freezing temps we would have stayed there through Thanksgiving. However, we ended up in the Sabine National Forest and that's where we will be on Thanksgiving.
Today we trekked into Center, TX picking up last minute provisions and getting our 1/2 price Sonic cheeseburger fix :) AT&T coverage is non-existent in the forest for data but at least our phones/texting work. We are enjoying the natural beauty of the area and the big pine trees. Have done a bit of exploring and plan to hike to the nearby waterfall tomorrow. Happy early Thanksgiving, pray that you enjoy the blessings in your world and realize that you are truly very blessed.
