Thousand Trails Medina Lake RV Resort – Lakehills, Texas Day 1 (GA302)

 Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,500+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here


The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Acton, California. I’m scheduled to depart here April 3rd.

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues. She had successful carotid artery surgery on Wednesday, November 14th,  returned home Thursday and is in the process of recuperation.



Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 50 miles from Kerrville to Lakehills, Texas. This location is about 40 miles northwest of San Antonio.



The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails. the largest RV resort company with 80 locations nationwide, of which Mary and I are members. I’ll begin my “Winter hibernation” by hiding out from colder weather with a three-week stay, departing not later than December 10th. After my stay here, I’ll head even further south until I reach the Rio Grande River and the border of Mexico to hide out from the colder Winter weather.



Along my way yesterday, I passed through the scenic Texas Hill Country…

Upon arrival at the campground and was in the process of locating my camping spot, I was greeted by a six-point black tail deer…






The RV resort is 260 acres with 357 camping sites. My location is level, partially shaded and very quiet…






As always, I like to show the view from the dinette window…



This is Deer country!



There are so many deer here, the welcoming paper work has two sheets of paper about them. The first one says…

Please DO NOT touch the fawns.

The majority of the fawns are born in late May through the end of June. Mother deer often give birth at night in areas, such as your campsite or the surrounding area. Does will often not return to their fawns until well after dark. DO NOT touch the fawns! This could cause the mother reject it. Keep yourself, your children and pets away from them. Enjoy looking at them from a distance. For the first 5 days after birth, fawns will not run when approached. Instead they will exhibit “freeze behavior”. They lie still when approached. From the 7th day on, fawns will exhibit “flight behavior” on approach. By one month fawns venture out to browse with their mothers.



The second sheet of paper says…

Mating Season For Deer

It’s mating season for the deer. Please use extreme caution when approaching the deer while they are feeding as they are very unpredictable.



I wasn’t here very long before I started seeing lots of deer. In the 18 hours I’ve been here, I’ve seen more wild deer than I have all the rest of my life combined. Certainly more than 100. Obviously they are protected here, not hunted and used to human presence. As a matter of fact while reading outside yesterday afternoon, a doe came along and lay down on the ground only about 10 feet away from me. You’ll be seeing lots of deer photos from me during my time here!



I haven’t been in San Antonio since 1979, so I may take a day-trip or two there while I’m here. Other than that I’ll just be hanging around reading and doing area photography. I’ll be supplementing my daily Blog with RV related topics that I’ve accumulated over the past year.



Enjoying beautiful wildlife is another joy in the life of the full-time RVing lifestyle!
