|This is stop #4|
Today is day three and it's moving day. I seem to be saying that a lot lately, but I'm liking these quick stops and short tows. It's like it was when I first hit the road with Freedom and Liberty. We were averaging moves every three days with the distance between campgrounds being about 150 to 175 miles. This trip I'm averaging less than 100 miles between campgrounds.
You can see a lot of new things when traveling quickly and that is the main purpose of my travels; to see new things. They don't have to be giant, spectacular things. Sometimes they are just a small flag on a fence post in the middle of nowhere. Or a long abandoned homestead along a deserted highway on the prairie. When lucky, nature will throw in a great sunrise or sunset just to keep me saying "wow". New things are everywhere, RV traveling just allows me to see more in a short period of time.
There wasn't anything special that brought me to this campground, but it is a another really nice COE campground. I had thoughts of visiting Fort Hood and its museum but I was afraid I would catch more "museum disappointment", so I just drove around the area to see what I could see.
|This is the campsite here at Cedar Ridge Campground. The days have been great with clear skies, highs in the 60's with lows in the 30's. I rarely use the awning on Liberty but I have it extended here so it can dry from previous rain.|
|The view looking out Liberty's door. That is Cedar Creek which feeds into the larger Belton Lake. Notice the line of clouds as a small "trough" blows through.|

|I drove around looking for things to see. This is the typical landscape of the area. It was a pretty day for a drive.|
|I saw a side road with the name "Bald Knob Road" so I had to check it out. The road was in pretty good condition with only one house in the first few miles.|
|Along with "everything is bigger and better in Texas", how about a giant Texas State Flag. Of all my travels, Texans fly their state flag more than any other state. Notice the name of the building on the left. I think it was a bank. Texas First.|
Ya'll take care of each other. I'll Cya down the road.
