Moving! Headed across Texas...steemCreated with Sketch.

Last night, I took a picture of the sunset while headed to our destination for the night near Coolidge, TX.

Packing up to leave this morning from RV Park in Coolidge, TX.

Today, we headed further into Texas.

The traffic going through Austin was horrible (stop and go for about 20 miles which added about 2 hours to the trip).

Also as we neared our destination in San Antonio, a driver suddenly pulled right in front of me and slammed on his brakes even though there was nothing in front of him. I slammed on my brakes but was not able to stop in time so I had to swerve, pulling the camper over the curb, and down into the ditch. Amazingly no damage was done to either the truck or the camper and I was able to use 4 wheel drive to pull the camper out of the ditch, back over the curb and back onto the street. All of this happened 1 mile from our final destination!

I was pretty upset at first that someone would do something like this. I don't know if they wanted to get insurance money or what.

Everyone with me was ok though and there was no damage done which is still hard to believe. Someone was watching out for us. I deciding that I needed to forgive them because I have no idea what they had to go through to resort to something like that for money. After deciding to forgive them, I felt much better.
