Hill Shade RV Park - unofficial home of the NuRVers

I had heard about Hill Shade in Gonzales, Texas as soon as we found the NuRVers online. It seems one of the first rally's was held here and everyone we met spoke highly of Christine and Michael and their family. Last year when we were in Texas we thought we'd get over to stay with them for a bit but our plans changed and we headed back to California instead. This time, though, we actually had about a week with no plans in between our stay in Austin and visiting Bill's brother in Smithville for Thanksgiving. Their park is now very busy and full-up with people working on the pipe-line out there. I emailed Christine and told her who we were and she replied that she knew exactly who we were and couldn't wait to meet us. We got lucky and a nice spot with a huge front yard was awaiting our arrival. Unfortunately, though, Christine was not - she was out of town and not back until the day before we were going to leave.

We had been on a whirlwind in Austin and it was nice to be out in the country with nothing to do and no where to go...except, of course, to the Spoetzel Brewery, home of Shiner Bock beer, one of my favorites, just down the road a piece in Shiner, Texas.

We did a lot of cooking while there - Bill made a fabulous vegan chili (with a few twists) from our new cookbook "Crazy Sexy Kitchen" and I made a few other yummy things.  The best thing about cooking, of course, is all the great left-overs you get!
