We visited the Texas Renaissance Festival, in Plantersville, Texas this weekend, which is an annual pilgrimage for us, but this year we made the trip in Tallulah Belle. We had towed her 1400 miles home from St Paul so we knew that towing would be noi problem. After testing all of the varioius systems, tying up loose ends and loading for the trip, we set out on Friday morning. One thing you immediately notice is the attention that these vintage trailers attract...we got horn honks, thumbs up and people asking what year was it and what make of camper every time we stopped. This is a BBQ shack in Montgomery, Texas...some really good brisket and sausage here! Swamp Witch waiting on her bbq order in the smoke shack.
Camping at the TRF is on 400 acres of pine covered fields, no assigned spaces just set up where you want to. Here is Tallulah Belle in her natural habitat!
Here we are in our RenFest finery.. but Tallulah Belle easily looks better than us! Ded Bob! Night time in the campgrounds was an experience! Thousands of pirates, wenches, knights, nobles and ladies, mostly all tipsy and roaming from bonfire to bonfire. We set up a firepit and just observed.
On the drive back home, we spotted an old canned ham in a used car/wrecking lot in Conroe, texas and had to stop and investigate. Turned out to be a Yellowstone, 19 foot, and we think late 50's vintage, but in no condition for anything but parts. Note front and rear doors with transom windows!!
