RE: dentists

We've been using Dr. Santana for 10 years. Have had root canals, bridges etc. Our stateside dentist says the work is exceptional. He was surprised. Highly recommend Dr. Santana but be prepared to wait for a appointment to get work done. He's very busy. Do you have more contact information for Dr. Santana such as an address etc. About four blocks down on the right would be the West side near where the original Red Snapper restaurant is.

RE: Rock N Roll in the Rio Grande Valley Texas

And what park were they playing at. We are at Benson Grove Next Door at Green Gate Grove.

Rock N Roll in the Rio Grande Valley Texas

Just came in from what in my opinion is the best Rock N Roll band in the Valley. Gatos Locos, translation, Crazy Cats, Sold Out, Full House. Also very good are Ralph and the Cruisers. And the Renaissance Rockers. Finally good Rock N Roll comes to the Valley. The dance floor was full. Also a very good free Rock N Roll Jam at Green Gate Grove every Friday at 1:00 P.M.

RE: Peak Season Survey

Oh yeah, one more rating. Participation in the Snowbird forum, 2 out of 10. Rio Grande Valley RGV. RV.Net participation low but far greater than Florida, Arizona, or S. California. As of now this post has 281 views.

RE: Peak Season Survey

Runaway carts have always been a problem here from my observation. Less so in Minnesota and when they do get loose in Minnesota they usually get hung up in a snowbank before they hit a car.

RE: Peak Season Survey

Here are mine: We are an ownership park, out of 424 lots we only have 3 or 4 vacant. RV Park fullness 10 out of 10. Age of park residents, 8 out of 10. We have several new couples this year in their late 50's to mid 60's Attendance at dances, flea markets, etc. 10 out of 10. For the Rock N Roll dances. 7 out of 10 for Country dances. Traffic 9 out of 10. There are some crazy drivers out there and also some that can't see. Someone backed into my golf cart yesterday. Politeness, 9 out of 10 locals. 7 out of 10 for the over 70 Winter Texan Crowd. Weather, 4 out of 10. Worst weather in our 14 seasons south

RE: Peak Season Survey

Politeness of locals a 10, some of the older gringo Winter Texans not so much. The cool winter must be making them crabby. Have you not shopped at a H.E.B. lately? You would understand my low score for politeness. No, we shop at a Walmart Marketplace store on Bryant Rd. They rate a 10 except they are often short staffed. Used to shop the HEB Plus on Shary Rd. They also rated a 10 but only there a couple times this season. Hope your HEB is not setting downhill trend in the HEB customer service department Valley wide.

RE: Rio Grande Valley Parks

On the west end of the Valley check out Mission West, then on Bentsen Palm Drive, Bentsen Grove, Americanna, Green Gate Grove, Golden Grove, Val's Country Corral and high end Retama Village and Bentsen Palm Village Resort. Near the World Birding Center, State Park, National Butterfly Center and paved biking trails. A mile off interstate #2, semi rural and easy fast access to McAllen and Mission.

RE: What does the future hold for 55+ park model communities?

I've actually been watching the market on park models in that area for three or four years. Some of the homes advertised right now have been on the market for several years. Some of those properties are not really, "For Sale", but if someone offers them more than it is worth, they can have it. There are some real bargains in the "For Sale" units, not so much in the "You can buy it" models. I have heard people say, "If it sells, it sells. If it doesn't, we will be back next year". (And they want to come back next year) This is so true, have seen it again and again.

RE: What does the future hold for 55+ park model communities?

My wife and I have been considering the RGV as a spot to winter when we retire. I've actually been watching the market on park models in that area for three or four years. Some of the homes advertised right now have been on the market for several years. Initially we were thinking that was the route we wanted to go but if you can't get rid of it when the time comes it might not be the best option. We've decided to go with a motorhome to begin with. Unless you go with an older moterhome it will depreciate as much as the cost of a couple park models within a few years.

RE: RGV weather

RE: Need advice 5th wheel size

I would not go over 30 feet, maybe less if you like to camp in state or national parks. There are not many sites the really big rigs will fit in. We downsized for that reason.

RE: When Is The Florida Migration At Its Peak?

Not in Florida but our biggest wave is the week after Thanksgiving and second biggest the week after Christmas. We arrive mid October.

RE: Weather forecast for after Christmas

14 seasons here, I have already worn long pants more than any other Winter and it is only Jan. 1.

RE: UPS Deliveries

If you still have the same manager you did 8 years ago it doesn't surprise me a bit. She was quite a dictator. We moved.

RE: Texas hurricane recovery

Most chatter is saying if they are open and have vacancies please come, they need the business and income to help rebuild the community, not just the RV parks but also the restaurants and other businesses that the Winter Texans patronize.

RE: Weather forecast for after Christmas

Florida warmth, traffic and high costs or Texas hospitality, slightly cooler temps and very low cost of living? Oh, so many choices.
