Blue People, Red State - Winter 2010 travel blog




We've retraced our steps back toward the Houston area. Although the bluebonnets were most prevalent in the Hill Country, the drive back here was much more beautiful than it was a week ago. Multi colored wildflowers graced the medians and road sides.

We've liked every state park we've stayed in and Stephen F. Austin State Park is no exception. The golf course there is what attracted us. It's so nice to live five minutes away from the course and go play whenever you are in the mood without making a tee time. The prices are reasonable, too. The park is quiet and sites are spacious. It's location near western Houston also made it a good spot to take care of some shopping that only a big city provides.

But it seems like every time we've stayed in the Houston area, we've had trouble with our internet connection supplied by the satellite dish. When we've stayed in a commercial RV park, we just used their internet, but in the state park we're on our own. Sometimes the connection is solid, but other times it struggles and loses the signal for hours on end. We phoned the company and it appears that some sort of electronic signaling - we're guessing it's related to NASA communications with satellites and perhaps the space station, has done us in. Hopefully, that means we won't be having these kinds of problems down the road in Louisiana.
