Scottybdivin,

In old town Grapevine are some great places to eat. Tolbert's at 423 S. Main St., has very good bowl of chili. Frank X Tolbert along with Wick Fowler(2 Alarm Chili), started the Orginal Terlingua Chili Cookoff 49 yrs ago. 2015 cookoff scheduled for Nov. 5-7th. Grapevine Texas' Premier Steak, Hamburger, Salad and Chili Restaurant - Tolbert's Restaurant

At 316 S Main St., is Main Street Bistro & Bakery. Delightful place for dining or sweets. Main Street Bistro & Bakery

Would not be surprised to learn you already know of both.

It's a nice park, but haven't stayed there yet. Its only 5 mi. from my house. Last few days, haven't traveled that far at all due to ice here. Warming a bit now, but another cold wave due Wednesday.

Actually, we didn't know about any of these places. This park is close to our dealer and we stayed here over Christmas when we purchased it. This time was for some pre-arranged repairs. So both times we have been here, everything was kind of shut down for different reasons. Found a good brew pub in Colleyville called the Londoner.

We don't see much snow in the Austin area so it was an adventure. The oldest airedale is 3 and she had never seen it. The whole family is enjoying the Mountain Aire.

I have decided that buying a coach in the winter is a good exercise in driving under adverse conditions. The 1st 3 trips were in gusty crosswinds. Today, i drove 250 mi on melted slushy roads. I have to say that it tracked nicely and felt very stable. The toad was nearly unrecognizable when we got home.

I am going to guess Scott, they don't use salt or calcium on your roads when they get snow on them do they? Just wait for them to melt off? I would love to go out on a winter camping trip, as the Coach is not winterized, just sitting in the garage waiting for spring, but I don't want to drive it on our roads with all the anti-skid, salt, calcium they dump on them.

I'm not sure what they put on the roads way up north here in DFW . I know in Austin they use sand on the overpasses.

Dallas just uses sand too. Last year they used fluid on the cobblestone ice on the bridges but otherwise no chemical. We got stuck in a campground west of where you are for 5 days and loved it. Nothing like having the place to yourselves.
