(Ron Writing) We left Fredricksburg this morning and drove east to Luckenbach, TX where “Everybody’s Somebody”. This tiny town has never had much more than a post office, bar, and dance hall since it was founded in the 1850’s but it was made famous by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings with their 1970 hit song “Luckenbach Texas”. We enjoyed seeing the old dance hall, post office (now a “general store” and bar) and the beautiful huge oak trees that make the hill country a special place.

Next we continued east on Hwy 290 to Stonewall, TX and the LBJ State Park and Historic Site. We looked around the visitor center, watched a film about LBJ and looked around the grounds. We didn’t take the ranch tour since we did that when we were here a few years ago.

We continued east on Hwy 290 to Johnson City and toured the Visitor Center at the park headquarters and took a tour of LBJ’s boyhood home. We skipped the Johnson Settlement walking tour because of the heat. It was about 95° and humid. It was not at all comfortable being out in the sun.

From Johnson city we continued east on Hwy 290 to Austin, TX. Monday I arranged for the Discount Tire shop here to order the tires I needed for the trailer. When we got to the store at about 4 PM they had the tires and had them installed within a half hour.

We are spending the night at a Wal*Mart Supercenter parking lot on the north side of Austin right off of I-35.
