October 28th - 30th, 2016 (2 nights)

SITE # 118 (Okay site, but not level where I needed it to be. We did not have adequate leveling devices and had to park far away from the hookups on a level spot.)

November 10th - 13th, 2016 (3 nights)
Kerrville Schreiner Park (36th time here)
Alone
SITE #234 (I chose this site because I had noted how level it was the last time I had it.
It is very level. Unfortunately, there is a huge Mountain Cedar tree that grows too close to the trailer. You can not use the awning, and it hits your head when you are walking where the awning would be. Phone service was excellent, possibly due to a different kind of roof on the Colby 2.0.)
