Why am I in San Antonio? I'm supposed to be in Corpus Christi.
 
I have two possibilities.
 
1-What I am thinking is created and the events happen to fulfill those thoughts.
 
2-My Journey is pre-determined and my thoughts occur prior to the event happening so that the event may occur.
 
Now which possibility created this reality?
 
I know I'm behind on some blogs and have some blanks to fill in but the internet at the campground isn't working as it should and so I'm at a Starbucks. I haven't pre-typed anything so this won't be one of my longer blogs.
 
Yesterday's blog indicated that the campground might not have room for me to stay more than one night. Actually what it was is that they didn't have any spots available for 3 nights in a row as I had asked for. I might have been able to move the trailer to a different spot this morning and stayed another day or 2.
 
I wasn't so sure I wanted to stay in that campground. It was a very nice campground. Everything was nice concrete. It's just that they had us packed in like sardines. I don't like to sneeze and have people in trailers next to me say gesundheit. I had driven around last night (I do have pictures to post) and noticed in all the other campgrounds that they were quite packed. I could have chanced it, but decided to move on. They were predicting rain for tomorrow anyway.
 
So why do I think my thoughts are creating events in my life? Or, that I know ahead of time the way things are going to turnout?
 
When I was in Galveston I wasn't so sure why I was going to Corpus Christi. I did some research and found a list of things to see and do. There's an Air Craft Carrier there, the Seashore, the Historical section of town, but not much else.
 
I started thinking in Galveston that I was starting to have enough of seeing the old parts of towns. It's all very interesting but these buildings are all not more than 150 years old. They're all very similar. That's why I want to get into the desert area of Texas with the cacti and varied landscape. It'll be different from what I've been seeing.
 
The second reason that I believe things turned out the way they did is that I've had in my thoughts that I don't like these campgrounds where they pack you in like sardines. At this campground in San Antonio I was put in a corner spot where I barely see the neighbours. Perfect, though the Wi-Fi issue doesn't give me a perfect spot. But hey, that wasn't a criteria I had been thinking about.
 
There are a few other things that are making me think about these "coincidences" but I won't get into them at this time.
 
Once I arrived this afternoon I started looking at the sites to see here and they are more along the lines of what I was hoping to see. So spending a few extra days here will be a good thing. I have something special planned when I'm here so I'll let you all know once it's happened. A few things have to fall into place first.
 
These past 2 days I've stayed off the Interstate and driven the secondary highways. That was something I had said I was going to do before leaving on my journey but haven't been doing much of it to date. Hopefully I can continue doing that for most of the remainder of the trip. It's slower going as you have to slow down as you go through all the towns, but you see so much more. Traffic is also better.
 
I'll get caught up in my blogs tomorrow as the forecast is for rain. Then get them posted either at Starbucks or at the campground rec centre that's supposed to have internet access.
