RE: End of season

It was my first season, and I was solo for most of it. LOVE the temperate weather, friendly RVers, and new things to explore.

I-45 League City to N side of Houston - clearance?

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!

RE: Texas RV parks

I'm on Mustang Island. Gulf Waters and Pioneer appear mostly full with a few empty spots. There are RVs coming and going daily from these two parks.

RE: I miss having a local community. Advice?

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 =)

RE: RV Park destroyed in Tornado DFW last night

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.

Great post, Dodger! Thank you!

RE: What About Mandalay?

We bought a used Mandalay DP and are enjoying it. Ours is 43', has 4 slides, a 425 Cummins, a tag axle, hydronic heat, a quiet 10 K generator. It has lots of nice extras like an outdoor TV, washer and dryer set, electric fireplace. Drives very nicely, too.

RE: Milwaukee and Chicago

We really enjoyed the City Museum in Milwaukee. It has nice variety in it's exhibits -- something for everyone. Is that the Milwaukee Public Museum? The "City Museum" that I know of by that name is the St Louis City Museum, which is also a neat stop but obviously isn't in or near Milwaukee. . Yes, the Milwaukee Public Museum. Thanks.

RE: Milwaukee and Chicago

We really enjoyed the City Museum in Milwaukee. It has nice variety in it's exhibits -- something for everyone. In Chicago, the Field Museum of Natural History and the Shedd Aquarium are very family friendly. I'd also recommend going to the Skydeck of the Willis Tower, tallest building in the western hemisphere. It's gorgeous around sunset, and you can watch the city light up for nighttime. If the weather is nice, bring a soccer ball or a Frisbee and hang out in one of the parks along the waterfront.

RE: Unusual or little known sights worth seeing

Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center, Enid, OK Sight of the largest competition in human history. Beautiful museum with lovely docents tells the very interesting story of the land rush and subsequent development of the wheat and oil industries in Oklahoma. Well worth going out of the way for!

RE: And what else could break on this trip...

I feel your sense of adventure. In the last two weeks a failed air dryer valve stopped me for three days, my toilet blew a fuse, my new Jeep's been in the shop for four days getting a new electric motor for the transfer case shift, and the rental car now has a flat tire. Whatever. It's all temporary stuff. There are many reasons why we seasoned travelers are marvelously adaptable people. =} Wishing you brighter days!

RE: I 35W

Drove it yesterday afternoon, a Sunday. Have never seen such a big construction project in my life! It's 2-3 lanes from north side of Fort Worth Al the way to 287. Traffic wasn't backed up, but was solid.

RE: Jeep Liberty Transfer case

I have a 2016 purchased 2 months ago. Ugh! Getting my butt kicked by mine right now! The instructions are very clear, and I follow them to the T. Now for some reason today it won't get out of neutral/tow mode. While holding the neutral button, the neutral light goes from solid to blinking, and won't stop blinking. Just won't actuate and get back in gear. Since I'm not mechanical, it looks like two more attempts and I'm calling a tow truck. Haven't ever had trouble getting it into neutral/tow mode. But this morning, it took several minutes to get back into driving mode. This afternoon, it's just a trailer.

RE: Can you really boondock in the Summer?

We've boondocked at summer events for a few years. Half the time, daytime highs are over 95 degrees. We don't have solar. We run the genny 18 or more hours a day to keep the inside cool. It helps if you can put out your big awning facing SW, though wind usually doesn't let us. Our biggest problem for 6+ days is gray tank space, not power.

RE: So who will be new in the class of 2015/16

Count me in! Looking forward to being a Winter Texan. I had planned to leave a few weeks ago and spend a month sightseeing while heading south. Maybe next week. After years of daydreaming and researching, I'm itching to get going. Our friends still have 10-15 more years to work before retiring. We are more likely to spend a week or two in one place than a few months.

RE: Annual wet leaves reminder

Coming from a place with few trees, it wouldn't occur to me that leaves can make roads or walkways slick. They just don't accumulate that way where I live. Thanks!

RE: WHERE TO PARK RV NEAR DISNEY?

Not sure but worth a try. Good friends of ours enjoyed the Reunion resort. They rented a house with a pool and game room for 8 adults, 5 kids. With a free standing house, maybe you could park a C in the driveway.

RE: One week to takeoff. LOTS to do!

OP again. I'm headed for Texas, allowing four weeks to get to Dallas. That will give me time to visit the kids, research family history, and see some attractions and college games.

RE: One week to takeoff. LOTS to do!

Thanks for the helpful suggestions! DH says the RV is loaded and the car is ready, so there is not much else to do. Yeah, right! Haha! Honestly I think getting the house ready and paperwork/mail under control is a lot more work than the RV. I do appreciate the voices of experience telling me to relax. Yes, I probably should let a few things slide. The last time I was away from home for months was college, and I didn't have to give a thought about mom and dad's house because they were home. For my friend who'd like a list, here's what I have left....I think. Tomorrow's list Forward mail, empty fridge, turn down water heater, put lights on timers, empty and scrub outdoor garbage cans, give away house plants, pay bills, switch newspaper to online, get pine needles out of gutters, get jet pack for cellular, fertilize perennials and bushes. Sprinkler woman will be here to blow out the system for winter, and the furnace man is doing fall service. Thursday Get filing caught up, make sure monthly calendar of bills, etc is up to date, type list of website passwords to take along, organize hobby stuff and load in RV, make house shutdown list for DH for the few times he'll return home, pick up prescriptions, call CoachNet Friday Go over weekly house check with house checker, go over snowblower with yard kid, consider drinking heavily, wash the last laundry, clean the house, Saturday Finish the items above that didn't get done. Get groceries for the first 3-4 days. Load last minute items. Spend the night in the RV.
