Palacios, Texas Day 2 (GA378)

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 Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’ll depart here June 25th.

 

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 25, 2013…

 

 

 

 

We are parked at VFW Post #2467 in Palacios. We will depart later this morning…

 

 

You may have noticed that in the last couple of weeks we have been slowly moving north and as we follow the Texas Gulf of Mexico Coast…east. The reason is because on February 6th, we have reservations to enter Sam Houston Jones State Park at Lake Charles, Louisiana for a one-week stay while we enjoy Mardi Gras!

 

 

Yesterday we wandered around Palacios. Here are some of the photos that I took…

Palacios, Texas

The motorhome is parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. She is busy with personal matters. She departs with her 14-year-old grandson for a trip to Turkey tomorrow.

In other news…

Yesterday, in preparation for my upcoming departure date which is still unknown at this time, the motorhome got an oil change and lube job.

Eight days ago I got my Ford Bronco II back after a transmission rebuild. It seems to run fine. However as part of the 3 year, 50,000 mile warranty, they require to re-inspect the vehicle after two weeks. So I’ll return to the transmission shop on Monday, April 21st. During the next few days, I’ll be busy with routine maintenance and cleaning on both the Bronco and motorhome. My actual departure date will be determined by the receipt of the telephone call discussed below.

Last September during my eye exam at the Seattle, Washington VA Hospital I was told I have a large cataract in my right eye that should be attended to in the next year.

On March 24th, we drove the Bronco 104 miles (one way) to the VA Medical Center at Livermore, California for my new eye exam which confirmed my cataract in my right eye. I was told I’m a candidate for surgery. I now await a phone call to establish an appointment for a consultation with an eye surgeon.

During my eye exam I was told that the surgery would be performed at the large Palo Alto facility near San Francisco. Just like being in the military, I am now standing in line and waiting! 🙂

A more relaxed mode..

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, we have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months we will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

CLICK ON THE BELOW PHOTO. ONCE YOU ARRIVE AT THE PHOTO ALBUM, SIMPLY CLICK “SLIDESHOW” AND ENJOY!

Palacios, Texas

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was a sunny day at 75 degrees. Forecast for today is a sunny day at 76 degrees.

Wadsworth, Texas – Along The Colorado River Trail

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 20 miles from Palacios, Texas to the Farm To Market Road 521 Colorado River Trail parking area along the Colorado River near Wadsworth, Texas where we spent last night. We are visiting with some folks who belong to the WIN (Wandering Individual Network), my ex-singles RV group of which I was a member from 1997 to 2007…my BM (before Mary) days. We’ll move on later this morning…

You may have noticed recently that we have been slowly moving north and as we follow the Texas Gulf of Mexico Coast…east. The reason is because on February 6th, we have reservations to enter Sam Houston Jones State Park at Lake Charles, Louisiana for a one-week stay while we enjoy Mardi Gras!

Here are some of the photos that I took. With the exception of the last photo who are WIN’s, all other people in the photos just happened to be fishing here along the river…
