New Chair

Yesterday we went to Camping World in New Braunfels. We were looking for Endurabond to better repair the tear in our roof. Camping World doesn’t sell Endurabond, they sell Dicor. It looks like the same stuff, but we weren’t sure if it would work as well. I’ve done some online research, and it seems they are pretty much the same stuff.

The duct tape Kevin put up there is holding up fine so far. However, we are concerned about the spring rains we know we’ll encounter further north. We ended up not buying it for now. We’ll be near another Camping World when we are in the Dallas area.

In the meantime, I am going to call the insurance company this week to check if they want to send someone to see the damage. We’ll be in Texas a few more weeks. It sure would be a waste to do the temporary repair, and then they want to see it and make us try to take it off.

I did buy a new chair though. Here’s a screen shot from Camping World’s website. I’ve been looking for a chair with a foot rest. This one actually has several reclining positions. You can have the foot rest in or out. And, it’s very comfortable.


We drove through the town of New Braunfels. There didn’t appear to be anything we were interested in looking at, so we didn’t stop.

The last stop of the day was at Walmart for some odds and ends. We rarely shop on the weekend. Now I remember why!

We had thought about doing some hiking in this area, but yesterday was really hot and today is very windy. So, Kevin has been enjoying the NCAA tournament and I’ve got a few projects I’m working on.

P1140284I walked down to the river area yesterday afternoon. There were a few people enjoying the warm day. I saw this cute little guy on one of the railings. I was expecting him to start trying to sell me some Geico insurance at any moment :)

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!


  1. I don't know about the other stuff, but I think the Eternabond is pretty permanent. Once it goes on, I don't think it comes back off.

  2. Oh I like the foot rest on the chair! Something to look forward to in my future. I bought a couple of very nice chairs right after we bought the Alfa, but because it was the end of the season they were really marked down. Good thing, because now if I decide I need a foot rest too, I won' t feel bad about the replacement. We have to get to full time first though.

  3. Downtown New Braunfels has some interesting murals, Naegelin's (the oldest bakery in Texas), etc. The town of Gruene is on the edge of New Braunfels. The oldest dance hall in Texas is located there as well as other interesting sights.

    1. Landa Park & Arboretum with the headwater springs of the Comal River, the Comal River, lots of bird life, and many trees with identifying markers is also a beautiful place. Oh, the Sophienburg Museum looks very interesting, but we haven't made it there yet.


We'd love to hear from you!
