My Motor Carrier's atlas is dated 2012. It shows a low clearance of 13 feet on I-45 just 1/4 mile north of the I-10 junction. Is that still accurate? I find it hard to believe that I-45 thru Houston isn't a truck route. I'm driving a MH towing by myself, and need to know in advance if there is a re-route due to height.
I greatly appreciate the help!
I'm a solo Winter Texan, under age 50. I've stayed in RV parks for the last several months, usually for 2 weeks or more. The parks where snowbirds stay for a few months at a time have been the most friendly by far in my experience. It helps that the weather is usually nice, so people are out on their patios or at the pool. I visit with my neighbors daily, and the parks have several activities during the week. Heck, I even went stag to the Valentine's Day dinner and had a really nice time.
If you spend time around other RVers you'll be with others who are traveling and temporary like you. Driveway camping, you're with people who are tied down and have their own agenda, family, job, interests, and you're a little more like a house guest. Find a park in nice weather with activities like happy hour, fishing trips, golf scrambles, Daytona 500 party, open mic night, etc. They're not all potlucks and bingo =)
I was in DFW with the RV a few weeks ago. Severe storms with tornadoes were expected to hit after 2am. I went to the office and asked where the tornado shelter or storm was. They didn't have one or know what I meant. I asked if a church or school nearby had one, no idea. So I rode it out in the MH. I was surprised, because they get far more severe weather in TX than we do up north.
