Kingsville, Texas

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Chehalis, Washington. I expect to depart here June 4th.

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

 

 

 

 

This entry was posted January 13, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 120 miles from Brownsville to Kingsville, Texas.

About 75 miles North of Brownsville we passed through a Border Patrol Station with no problems…

Kingsville is the headquarters of the famous King Ranch which you can read about by clicking their website link…

Here’s a Wikipedia link about King Ranch…

Upon arrival we went to the King Ranch Museum…

The King Ranch Museum is one of those museums that I give a GREAT BIG BOO too because they do not allow photography. Once again and as always, I saw nothing in the museum that would make the World stop turning if a few photos were taken. Most uncommon for me, I did not care for this museum for I saw it as shamelessly flaunting its wealth which I have never cared about. It seems so funny for me to be saying I didn’t enjoy a museum.

 

 

 

 

 

After the museum we went to Elks Club #1926 where we parked for the night. The folks there were very friendly…

006

 

 

 

 

 

They suggested a location where we could plug into electricity so we ended up with this very colorful view from our dinette window…

Enjoying interesting museums that don’t flaunt their wealth is another joy of the full-time RVing lifestyle!!!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

 

 

The weather here in South Texas has been erratic lately. First it’s too hot like in the mid-80’s with high humidity and then it’s too cold with highs in the mid-50’s and mid-30’s at night with the wind …which seldom stops blowing…providing a really chilly wind factor. Like yesterday at 6:00 AM it was 78 degrees and this morning at the same time it was 54 degrees. Crazy!!!

Brownsville, Texas The Southern-Most Point In Texas…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

This entry was posted January 12, 2013…

 

 

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 25 miles from Port Isabel to Brownsville, Texas.

 

 

We spent the night parked at VFW Post #2085. Now that we have reached the southern-most point in Texas, at this latitude the Gulf of Mexico forces us to drive North to continue our journey. Later this morning we’ll drive the about 120 miles to Kingsville, Texas.

 

 

Brownsville is unique in that it is located at the southern-most tip of Texas and across a not-very-wide Rio Grande River lies another country…Mexico. Because Brownsville is also close to the Gulf of Mexico, it has a most interesting history. You can read its history by clicking this Wikipedia link…

After our arrival at the VFW yesterday morning, we unhooked the Bronco and drove the about five miles to old town area of Brownsville. The museum was the kind I really like…it had lots of old black and white photos. We also visited the Stillman House (founder of Brownsville) adjacent to the museum. After another shrimp lunch we visited the Costumes of the Americas Museum. Here is the link to the Brownsville Historical Complex Museum’s website…

Motorhome Internal Engine Cleaning…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Chehalis, Washington. I expect to depart here June 4th.

 

Yesterday I took the motorhome to a local shop for a BG Inductive and fuel injector cleaning. It’s supposed to clean out all of the carbon buildup in throttle body, intake passage, intake valves and combustion chamber. The fuel injector is supposed to clean the injectors, and fuel rail of particle buildup. The process is also supposed to increase the gas mileage.

 

The cleaner(s) is put in a container which is pressurized by shop air. The vehicle engine is started and the cleaner flows through the system until the cleaner chamber is empty and the engine stops running. This is what the system setup looks like…

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

 

 

The entire process took a little more than one hour.

 

I’m not sure if it’s psychological or real, but during the 10 mile drive back to the RV resort it seemed to me that the motorhome was idling smoother, was more responsive to foot pedal pressure and seemed to in general run smoother.

 

Back at the campground, I hooked up motorhome computer scanner and found that my pesky P0306 – random misfire on cylinder 6 is now gone and presented no other codes.

 

So much for the initial drive. Next Monday, I’ll continue my travels further north on about a 125 mile drive to Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’m looking forward to see how that trip goes. Upon arrival, I’ll once again attach my scanner and hopefully there will be no new default codes.  🙂

 

 

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTO.

Forecast for today is cloudy and 67 degrees.

Harlingen, Texas Day 22 (GA363)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Chehalis, Washington. I expect to depart here June 4th.

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

 

 

 

 

This entry was posted January 10, 2013…

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at Tropic Winds RV Resort. We’ll be moving along later this morning.

 

 

Yesterday, once again, we had planned a day trip to San Padre Island about 50 miles distant. But, once again, heavy rain with lots of thunder and lightning forced a cancellation of our plans.

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

So we put the day to good use by doing laundry, picking up Mary’s bicycle from the repair shop, visiting with a contingency of the my ex-RV singles group, for which I belonged to for 10 years and dropped out in 2007, who were passing through Harlingen and staying at the Elks Club. By time we returned at 6:00 PM, the sky was starting to clear, I thought, only to be followed by more rain, thunder and lightning during the night…

004

 

 

 

 

 

The weather forecast for today is sunny and 71 degrees. That’s good because our allowed time here at Tropic Winds RV Resort is up and we are obligated to move on. So today we’ll take both the motorhome and Bronco and head towards San Padre Island. The below Google Earth image shows the Harlingen area in the upper left. SPI identifies the island which is a strip of land that runs North for 70 miles and PI identifies Port Isabel, a small community with some museums we’ll likely visit…

Harlingen, Texas Day 21 (GA362)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Chehalis, Washington. I expect to depart here June 4th.

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

 

 

 

 

This entry was posted January 9, 2013…

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at Tropic Winds RV Resort. We expect to move on tomorrow.

 

 

Yesterday we had planned a day trip to San Padre Island about 50 miles distant. But constant 50+ mile per hour winds and severe morning thunderstorms canceled our plans.

This is your smarter-than-average jack-rabbit, not only does it have its back to the wind…it’s hiding from the wind directly behind a tree…

The rain finally stopped around noontime…the wind continued. In the afternoon we ventured out with the Bronco to take Mary’s bicycle to a shop for repairs. Then a little grocery shopping and back to the motorhome. We’re hoping the weather will cooperate today for our San Padre Island trip.

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
