Jan 7, 2014 - Beginning of 7th Year................

From Texana Park & Campground – Edna, TX Already 7 days into this New Year and coincidentally the beginning of our 7th year of travel. Guess I’m still in the world of “7’s” after writing the 2014 homepage message. If you did not read this before you clicked on this “1 Jan 2014” entry you might enjoy going back and doing so……found just above the map and year individual entries. Not much to report on this first post of the year. We or should I say I welcomed in the New Year here at the park while Rudy enjoyed his first University of Houston...

Dec 31, 2013 - Another Year In The Books!

From Texana Park & Campground – Edna, TX Catching you up from our last post we had a wonderful Christmas with family. It all began on the 23rd with a trip to Bryan with our kids and daughter-in-law to visit my Mom and Stepdad. Enjoyed a nice extended family group visit and exchange of gifts. Then we enjoyed a very wonderful and tasty Christmas Eve dinner with our daughter followed by a beautiful Christmas Eve service at her home church in Houston. On Christmas Day we were again at our son’s for a family Christmas celebration rounding out...

Dec 9, 2013 - Youth Rodeo & Cowboy Prom

From Texana Park & Campground – Edna, TX Burrrrr…….Cold, rainy just down right miserable here in south Texas. Since last posting other than have to host responsibilities we have been “trailer hermits”! Cody’s favorite spot this past week has been laying in front of the oscillating ceramic heater. One good thing has helped since the weather turned so “wintery” and decided to take up permanent residence………we now have doubled the number of park hosts. Yep, in addition to the couple from Quebec, Blaine from Oklahoma arrived with the artic...

Nov 26, 2013 - Catch Up Time

From Texana Park & Campground – Edna, TX Has it already been 3 months since we completed our “summer travels”? Hope the next 3 fly by as fast so we can once again hit the road with our home behind and see more of this beautiful country up close and personal. Since last update we have not done anything or gone anywhere on our days off to afford a post dedicated to our activities. We did however drive into Rosenberg; back up Hwy. 59 towards Houston, to meet our daughter. She wanted to celebrate my birthday with lunch at Texas Roadhouse....

Nov 14, 2013 - Texana Chili Spill Event

From Texana Park & Campground – Edna, TX Been at Texana for nearly 2 weeks and with only one other host couple to share park duties the time has been busy. Park has had very few empty sites both weekends so for. Quite sure the beautiful “Fall” weather has been a major reason so many have come to enjoy outdoor activities with their families. Another draw was the Annual Texana Chili Spill this past weekend held at the Main Event Center of Brackenridge Park just across the street and part of this park now that it is owned by the...

Nov 2, 2013 - New Hosting "Home"

From Texana Park and Campground – Edna, TX Left Village Creek State Park yesterday…..thought we might have to “float” out but torrential rains stopped Thursday evening and we left a swampy host site in our rear view mirror. Made the trip south to our new hosting position in Edna with only a 17 minute traffic stoppage on I-10 East in where else….Houston! Every time through that city and its freeway traffic assures us why we have elected to leave the area and travel…..only our kids have the ability to lure us back! We did make our usual stop...

Apr 24, 2013 - Nearing End To Hosting Duties

From Texana Park & Campground – Edna, TX As April is quickly coming to a close so is our present hosting commitment. During our second month here at the park we were joined by two new host couples………..D.L. & Mary and Terry & Lillian. This hosting crew for April all hail from Texas unlike the March gang that had a mix from Ohio, Canada and us from Texas. It is this constant turnover of new hosts from all regions of the United States and areas of Canada that allows continued building of ones network of RV friends. Speaking of friends, Ron and...

Apr 1, 2013 - First Month Behind Us

From Texana Park & Campground – Edna, TX First month of our two month hosting commitment is behind us now. We have really enjoyed the beautiful weather that has accompanied the first half of our stay………for the most part cool nights and days where temps have not ventured but to the low 80’s! Think by now we have once again learned the lay of the park and acquainted ourselves with the new management expectations of the host program now that the park is privately owned and no longer associated with the state. As I stated this past month there...

Mar 18, 2013 - Hosting Update

From Texana Park & Campground – Edna, TX Time has just flown by…….already been here going on three weeks. The park has really been busy the last week to ten days with Spring Break and folks just wanting to get out with family and friends to enjoy the wildlife setting of this old state park, fish in the lake, ride or walk the trails and just sit back with campfires enjoying life and what it has to offer. The weather has really been great the entire time we have been here and I think this also contributed to the park being full………….25 to 30...

Mar 1, 2013 - A Return To A Favorite Park

From Texana Park & Campground – Edna, TX We have moved south of Houston to one of our oldest and most favorite campgrounds for the next two months. We left behind a beautiful and peaceful wooded park on a lake for another just as peaceful. This one however having good phone service and adequate internet accessibility. As some already know this park was in the Texas State Park system until the middle of last year when due to cuts in the State Park budget in Texas it was decided this park would be no longer maintained by the state. Since...

Apr 2, 2011 - Around the Brackenridge Recreational Complex

Today we started to head North as it is starting to warm up in these here parts. Our first stop was to the Brackenridge Recreational Complex which is near Edna, Texas. We came here to see if we could find the Pileated Woodpecker. We had camped here before when it was really busy so we hoped we would have a better chance of finding one when it wasn't quite so busy. We walked through the woods many times but no woodpeckers! While we were here we ran into Robert and Nancy Hans. They are also Mobile Suites owners that we met before at an SOITC...

Apr 5, 2010 - Spring is Here

I always look forward to Easter because it tells me that Spring is here and warm weather with it, so Happy Easter to everyone, hope you were all able to be together and hunt Easter Eggs or just enjoy the company of friends and family. I haven’t been posting anything because we haven’t done anything of note. We hosted for the month of January at Lake Texana State Park and spent February and March in Hitchcock at our “home” park, Lily’s By the Bay. I have been keeping doctor appointments, some for regular checkups and some as a result of...
