Victoria Texas, the Crossroads

Ringing in 2018 in the crossroads of Texas

We migrated to south-central Texas the second week of January, landing in Victoria Texas. This medium-sized community is dubbed the “crossroads” for the coastal bend area of Texas. It is centered between Houston and San Antonio and about 30 minutes from the Port Lavaca, on the Gulf Coast. This is a working town. No real […]

January Journal: Ugh – the dreaded flu hit us

About a week after we arrived, we both came down with the winter, nasty flu. I actually tested positive and Marc did not, but they treated both of us with Tami-flu and antibiotics, as well as some cough suppressant. For almost 2 weeks, we did pretty much nothing more than the absolute minimum of work, […]

Baseball games and practices, church and friend activities, school and […]

August Journal – Week 3

Tuesday, Aug 23 – Well, we are carefully watching a fire that grew up very quickly about 6 miles south of our RV Park on Monday, being whipped by high winds and heat. The fire went from 500 acres to 25,000 acres in a little more than 48 hours.  Yikes! We are somewhat protected by […]

August Journal – Week 2

After a great week in Jackson Hole Wyoming, we moved on Sunday the 14th, to a small out-of-the-way RV Resort near Ririe Idaho.  Heise Hot Springs turned out to be WAY off the beaten path, down a few sketchy roads that a 40 Ft motorhome with toad probably shouldn’t be going. We made it anyway, […]
