TBD on Ning

Well it has been a while since I've posted, so I guess it is about time.

We've been having really nice weather here in East Texas, or if you are a west Texan, East Louisiana.
Been here two weeks and two days. This is the Headquarters of the Escapees RV Club. It is more than just a nice RV park. Escapees has over 60,00 members and over 30,000 are active. Many are full timers. If any of you readers think you might want to join our ranks in the future, the web site is www.escapees.com It is a full support service for the RVer. At the main Escapees web site you will find many other web sites listed for additional info.
Disclaimer: I in no way profit from your visiting the website or joining the club. I put this information here simply because I know there are many people out there who have an interest in RVing, but do not know where to find the info they are looking for.
I'm in the process of purchasing a Jeep Liberty to replace my Saturn that I currently use as my tow car. Or as RVers call it, "TOWD" because it goes where it is towd. I'm buying it from Enterprise Car Sales in Houston. NO!!! Please don't tell me any horror stories about purchases made from Enterprise. I'm to far along in the process and want to sleep at night.
I have visited with Pru a couple times and will report that she is doing well. She is just as friendly and humorious in person as she is on line. I'll probably be here at least a couple more weeks while I go through the process of purchasing and and setting the jeep up to tow. I've been here over two weeks and my feet(or tires) are stating to itch. Plus a cold front just came through(it's down in the 60s)and the wind is blowing. Can't stay here to late in the winter. There are signs around here that say "Warning, Bridge may freeze before roadway". That is a sure sign that I'm too far North for this time of year. I just attended a two day "Boot Camp" for RVers. We learned about fire hazards and what all could go wrong with tires and various other things. I almost came back and put a "FOR SALE"
sign on the RV. Just kidding, but there is a lot of hazards that all RVers should know about and learn how to cope with. Ok, I going to put up a couple pictures of Happy in the dog park and then take him for a walk.

Happy Trails to you.

Robbie and Happy

Robbie, I envy your lifestyle. I threw the idea out to Kittycat about selling the house and travelling the country for the rest of our lives. She didn't share my enthusiasm. I know I would miss the grandkids. We would have to figure out a budget to determine if it's even feasible. Paying campground rental for most of the year would get pretty pricey.

Your lifestyle must get better every year. We took a road trip in August and realized that we had taken 4 items with us that was out of the question 20 years ago. Cell phone, GPS, Satellite Radio, laptop.

To Jaylee, Well, this is not official, but the people who live in dry,dry,dry, low humidity West Texas usually think of anything East of I-45 as West Louisiana. They say it isn't really part of Texas. The people who live in this area claim that the West Texans are just jealous because East Texas has trees. One thing for sure, anyplace east of Dallas, Austin, San Antonio can't ever brag about "dry" heat. I'm currently at Livingston which is about 60 miles Northeast of Houston.

Quinn, anybody who lives in South Canada, Oops!!! I mean Pennsylvania, is automatically forgiven between September and the next June. In case A From B reads this, Massachusetts gets a pass between July 4th and 14th. In Mass you can miss summer by taking a long bath.

Pru. Happy is very shy and afraid of people. He doesn't like contact with humans so, I usually keep him hidden.

Forgive me if I don't feel sorry for you :-)
