Stunting Scrambler & San Antonio

What a Scrambler can do with the right tires and the right rider.

Sarah and I took a trip to San Antonio this weekend. It was the first time for both of us.  Got to see the Alamo and walk the length of the River Walk. We didn't go into the chapel part of the Alamo, the Spanish missionary building you probably imagine as "The Alamo." But we did go through the museum section in the standing barracks part.

After that we got some fancy Tex-Mex food and walked around the Riverwalk. It's fascinating that such a thing exists in an American city. We watched Wreck-it-Ralph in a mall theater right on the river and took a boat tour around everywhere we'd walked. I definitely recommend taking the boat tour after dark; there's more to see and the route will less disorienting if you've walked around a bit first.

Unfortunately, when we got back to our car we discovered that someone decided to help themselves to our overnight bags we'd left in the back seat of our car. I lost my assault pack and a fleece. Sarah lost her school bag, research, and planner. We both had clothes and phone chargers in there too. The car window was fixed early this afternoon and we'll be getting some cash to defer the value of the stolen items. San Antonio PD, USAA insurance, and Safelite glass repair were all helpful, but the situation still sucks.
