The Texas Bluebonnet Allegro Club

This weekend, we are in Fredericksburg, TX at the local KOA campground meeting with 13 couples to form a new Tiffin Allegro Camping Club. 

We had a little bad luck on the way up here……… a passing truck, associated with all of the oil and gas work going on around the Cuero/Gonzales area, threw a rock as we passed each other, and put a big ding on the windshield….. in the tinted area above the driver.  I was loud and sounded like a gunshot!!  Here are some pictures………..


I am pretty sure that the ‘ding’ can’t be repaired, and we will need a new windshield because it is in the tinted area and due to the size!!  I will get a glass place at home to confirm, but I have already contacted our insurance company and have it set up for a Red Bay replacement on the way back from our trip to Disneyworld in June.  I am not as disappointed as I might be, as the Bus is almost 5 years old, and when you get up and clean the windshield it is easy to see lots of “little” dings!

We arrived Thursday afternoon, and Patsy and I toured the downtown area. The club meeting did not start until Friday, so we stayed at the Oakwood RV park because it was $16.50 per night with our Passport America discount while KOA wanted another $49 for the extra night!!  The savings paid for dinner.

We decided to eat German food, and chose the Asulander Restaurant on Main St. in Fredericksburg.  We both had the wiener schnitzel, and although it was good, I am not sure that I would order it again.  The restaurant was nice, and here are some inside pictures…….


On Friday morning, we left at 8:30am in the car to visit the Fredericksburg Trade Days event.  It was interesting, but was mostly antiques and Junque!!  After about 2 hours, we went back to the Bus at Oakwood, quickly washed the bugs off the front, and then departed for the KOA across town.  We got a really nice site, and we were quickly set up. 


On Friday night, the whole group went to a local “K-Bob’s” steak house for dinner and had a good chance to get acquainted.

This morning, we had a group breakfast, and then our initial meeting to get the club set up.  That was interesting………. too much like work!!!

Afterward, Patsy and I drove over to the Lady Bird Johnson Municipal park to walk through a car show that is happening this weekend.  Here are some photos………



There were several hundred really nice vehicles.  

Another update as the weekend unfolds…………

Hi Richard

Just found your blog. Looks like you are having a good time. Bonnie and I did Disneyland 2 years ago but without the rig. We leave in July for South Fork, CO and then Eagle Nest, NM.

Safe travels
