How I love thee.
I was going nuts sitting in an empty apartment. I was getting soooo irritated by the fact that I couldn't log on to pg.org from my iPhone (still won't work for whatever reason).
Anyways, we found a lovely 2 bedroom apartment with a fantastic view of the interstate. We've been enjoying sleeping on the floor and enjoying meals on a card table. Funny enough other than lack of furniture and the lovely background noise, this place is nicer than the base housing we were in. And this is the 2nd cheapest apartment we could find near the base! Nice as in it has CARPET and a WORKING dishwasher (other than me ). With luck we'll have a bed and couch later tonight (rental furniture).
I am enjoying the city though, which is funny because people keep apologizing that we're "stuck" here for 3 months because "it's not a great city." Ummmm....yeah, they should all take a vacation to Del Rio. I'm pretty sure they'll change their tune quickly then.
I hope you at least get the bed. I hate sleeping on the floor.
I bet some of the people there do vacation in Del Rio. Lake Amistad is very popular. They don't go for anything other than the lake though, and usually rent a houseboat and spend a week on the lake. We have a group of friends that go do that every summer. DH has talked about some day getting a small place out there on that lake that we can go to every summer. Or at least keeping a boat down there. The lake is awesome and totally kicks but to any body of water near San Angelo (and we have 3 lakes here).
I'm glad you are back online with us!!
Oh yeah, the lake is great from what we hear (we never went out on it), but like you said none of them actually probably step foot in Del Rio other than maybe the Walmart on the edge of town. lol
