Dec 28, 2018 - Houston

Tonight we're on the Eastern outskirts of Houston, TX. It was another fairly easy travel day, only about 100 miles. But the weather was good and the traffic was fairly light. We're in Houston East RV Resort, right on the service road of I-10. The plan is to get moving fairly early and get through Houston in the morning. That will be the last "city" we pass through on the way to our winter nest in Harlingen.

Apr 12, 2016 - Baytown, TX - Houston East RV Park

It was an anything but uneventful 268 miles today from Livingston, LA to Baytown, TX. We hit two major traffic backups before we could get out of Louisiana. The first was in Baton Rouge which seemed to be just normal traffic getting backed up as people tried to get on I-12. The second was in Lake Charles where they had shut down one of the two lanes on the bridge crossing the Calcasieu River just west of Lake Charles. this one was stop and go for about three miles and a 20 minute delay. We were able to give the Mothership another drink when...

Mar 22, 2016 - Back to Houston

Yesterday we took our leave from Glenn and Connie as we turned South towards Houston. They will continue East on I-20 as we head for the coast. It was 280 down I-45 but it took us over 5 hours because of traffic, accidents, and construction. Today we ran down to Galveston to do a couple things we didn't get to do last time. We started at The Offshore Rig Museum. This is a retired offshore oil drilling platform that is now a museum and information center for the oil drilling companies. From there, we went down the block to view a video...

Dec 6, 2015 - Baytown, TX

Saturday morning 9 AM and we're back on the road heading West on I-10. Traffic is light and the weather is perfect. We all reach the decision that the bad road conditions in New Jersey have nothing to do with the Winter weather. I-10 is a bone rattling experience for most of the trip. We pull into the Houston East RV Resort at 3 PM, having covered 328 miles in 6 hours. The campground is nice and very clean. The down side is that it is right alongside I-10 so there is some road noise, but if we could sleep through the highway construction...

Apr 5, 2014 - Slow Week

Not much to report, this week. Lots of wind and fog, but still traveling with my best friend and that's pretty cool! We did visit the King Ranch museum but no photography allowed. Left our island this morning and currently spending one night in Baytown Texas and heading to Louisiana tomorrow. If all goes according to plan, Crawfish are on tomorrow night's menu!! Whoopee!!!!! One extra note, if you ever get the chance to drive through Houston with a fifth wheel in tow, don't!! I'm just too old for that excitement. The really bad news is that...

No Snow For Us

Mar 7, 2014 - Revised: The Best Thing about Texas is Grandkids!

We parked in the driveway at Amanda's house, and had just finished plugging in when she rolled in from school. This was everyone's last day before Spring Break, so all were in great spirits. We had dinner at their favorite local Tex-Mex - El Toro - where I just love their green sauce and seafood enchiladas. On Saturday, I went to their Tae Kwon Do classes to watch them go through their forms etc. as they march toward their black belts. Robert has been a black belt for some years, but the kids just started when they moved to Baytown not...

Feb 26, 2014 - Southwestern, Louisiana and Western Texas

Well, interesting day... Woke up early to avoid New Orleans traffic on our way out of the city. We had had a thunderstorm with long down pouring rain in the night. Back doors to camper leaked (possibly because I put velcro back there for the screen I made, but I wouldn't think that is the problem, so who knows). Bedding and pillows a little wet but mostly dried out on our trip to Texas. Anyway, we set out and it rained for hours. Then the rain stopped and the wind started. So slow moving, but ok. Drove mostly on secondary roads, a lot of...

Feb 17, 2014 - Houston, TX

Left San Antonio this morning around 11:00am after grocery shopping and turning in our renal car. Took a little over four hours to get to the east side of Houston, Baytown. We stopped at Whataburger for a hamburger, Texas famous. Arrived here at the RV park and Marina quickly started doing laundry after walking the pups. Marina has taken to this RVing, she's really getting good at getting sliders out, connecting up electric and cable. Planning on visiting Battle Ship of Texas in the morning, will get pictures as I've learned how to get them...

Oct 29, 2010 - The Lone Star State

Destination for the day, Baytown/Galveston KOA just east of Houston, just over 400 KM's from Baton Rouge. Shortly after leaving camp we crossed over the Mississippi once again. Ever since hitting Louisiana we have seen nothing but flatland and trees, the only hills we have seen have been man made and are the overpasses on the freeway. Today would be no different. Once we got west of Lafayette the section of I-10 we were traveling on is called the Atchafalaya Swamp Freeway, and believe me it is. In one section you are travelling along a...

Mar 23, 2010 - Baytown/Galveston

We have been in the Houston area (actually staying E of Houston in Baytown). Its not hard to tell the major employers down here....anywhere you look on the horizon are HUGE oil refineries...and it is a major area for container shipping. Today we took a little side trip down to Galveston. I must say, as a West Coast beach goer it was a little disappointing...the area is REALLY FLAT, and no breakers out on the water...just waves. It was pretty interesting though to see all the buildings built on stilts. And there is still alot of damage from...
