|While we were in San Antonio, I was fortunate to be able to begin the process of joining the Elks. The Elks have lodges all over the US and many of them have parking and utilities for RVs. To use these facilities you have to be a member. Because of the steps that are required I couldn't finish in San Antonio, so they made it possible for the ceremony to be done at the Slidell Elks. This Elks lodge is on 25 acres on the bayou and is beautiful. The members were so friendly and because it was so beautiful there, we decided to stay an extra four days.
