Fulltiming Since January 2008 travel blog

Mary Sue and Bruce

We stopped at a truck stop so I could fix us some...

Grumbles and Tiny in our spot at "Gateway to the Gulf RV...

Windy, windy, windy!

Today we left the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) on our way north and had (for the most part) a tailwind pushing us along from the south. Hopefully we can avoid the storm fronts moving across the country these next couple of days by staying just behind the worst of it.

We are going to miss our RGV friends so very much. What a fun winter season we have had.

Last night we enjoyed a lovely Mexican dinner with very dear friends, Bruce and Mary Sue, in Weslaco, Texas. Then, last night after dinner, our friends Nick and Toni dropped off a ham dinner to our RV for us to enjoy on the road so I wouldn't need to cook today! Very thoughtful and very appreciated.

After our day of driving we have stopped for the night in Victoria, Texas, at the "Gateway to the Gulf RV Park". This is a very neat and tidy park with easy to access pull-through sites. Perfect for Tiny and Grumbles to stay hooked up for the night so we can get an early start in the morning. We walked a few laps around the park this evening after our ham dinner, but due to the high winds sandblasting my legs (and Blayde's nose!) we didn't get as many laps in as we would have liked... but it is still a great place to stay for the night on our trek north.

Our friends from Minnesota, Paul and Sandy, called this evening to say "hi" and it helped to remind me that although we are leaving one group of very dear friends in the RGV we are headed north where we will get to meet up with some other very special people, too. Being able to visit with friends and family is truly one of the best parts of being a fulltimer!

Happy Travels,
