Well, for those of you readers that are from Bentsen Grove, the attached picture shows third and fourth street north from our site (328). This morning we were the last one out. Rick and Lynda Fontaine (336) left just 5 minutes before us but we were the last ones on the block to leave. We are already looking forward to seeing all of our "winter family". See you all soon! Tonight, we are just north of Houston, TX. The weather is nice but cool. Tomorrow we should make it to Little Rock AK. We hope to be home Thursday. We will let you know...

Mar 20, 2014 - Houston, we have a problem

"Houston, we have a problem", those words we all remember Tom Hanks, playing astronaut Jim Lovell, saying in the movie Apollo 13. In actuality it was: "Houston, we've had a problem" was said by Apollo 13 astronaut Jack Swigert, played by Kevin Bacon in the movie, on April 13, 1970. I remember the first flight of an American, Allen Shepard, riding Mercury 3 'Freedom 7' Redstone rocket into space. Then the missions were controlled from Cape Canaveral Florida were the actual flight was launched. All Mercury(one astronaut) program fights and...

2014 RV Adventure

Mar 17, 2014 - Houston Tx

On the road again, destination Huston TX. Pete bought a LED Light strip for under the motorhome at the PPL (RV store and needs to pick it up there, excuse). We canceled the prior reservation we had and decided just drive to another RV park, unfortunately they were full so Pete decided that we will drive to PPL, to get there we had to drive through downtown Huston. What a ride, I was glad that we finally arrived. I got a headache from navigating here. PPL has few spots for customers so we staying on the parking lot but had water and electric...

Our trips

Mar 11, 2014 - Houston Rodeo & REO Speedwagon

Hello Everyone, Well, we finally made it to TEXAS! We started off in Houston because they were having their famous Houston Livestock & Rodeo! In addition, they have a live concert every night, and when we went on Monday, it featured one of my favorite bands, REO Speedwagon! For the first time since we started this cross country trip, we were forced into separating the Truck Camper from the Truck because the roads around Houston were so big and fast - way too fast for the scooter! At the Houston Rodeo, we saw everything from newborn Calves,...

Feb 14, 2014 - Houston RV Resort

Good morning, What a trip, got away from house around 5:30pm and when we reached Deland the rain started coming and it rained all the way to Big Oak RV Park. We reached park around 11:00pm and it's still raining and I experienced my first hooking everything up in the rain - water, electric and cable. Got to bed at 1:00pm. Got up this morning at six, Marina's still in bed with Meelo, Domingo is asleep on the coach and here I am watching TV and trying my hand a creating this journal for everyone to ride along with us. By the way it 39 degrees...

Feb 9, 2014 - Houston, Texas

Arrived in Houston on February 7 and spent a couple of weeks at Safari RV Park in League City so we could visit with Josh, Karen, Ellie & Jason. We went to their house almost every night and spent time with the grandkids. Ellie was really happy to have us there again and even exclaimed one night "You came back." Makes me wish I could just stay there and spend more time with her. She is such a joy to be with. We went for walks in the evening, me with Hayley & Lucy, and Ellie has Kayla on her leash. Josh got home from work about 6:30 and we...

Feb 6, 2014 - Houston, TX

After leaving our favorite town of Junction, we traveled I-10 to just west of Houston and stayed at Houston West RV Park about 30 miles out of Houston. Our trip through San Antonio was a little hair raising as we hit snow and ice and it made the overpasses and bridges extremely slippery. We only had trouble on one on-ramp, but traveled very carefully. Once out of the city, the roads were better, but Dale was really glad when we pulled into the RV park that afternoon. This was new territory to us as we had not traveled east on I-10 out of...

Jan 17, 2014 - Final Day at Sea

Our final day aboard the ship was at sea, returning to Houston. The sea was very calm and we are happy to report that none of our happy little band suffered from seasickness at all. Each of the couples pretty much did their own thing that day, but did enjoy dinner together, as usual. Part of the time was spent in packing up and making ready to disembark the ship on Saturday morning. The entire voyage was a good time for everyone. The fun and general harassment of one another kept the laughter going throughout the trip. The food was very...

Jan 17, 2014 - Houston Marathon

We drove back up to Sharon's this weekend to cheer Adam, Peter, and Sharon in running the Houston Marathon. It was Peter's first marathon, Sharon's second one, and Adam's third (or maybe fourth!). Additionally, Sarah flew down to be a cheerleader and to spend time with her nieces and nephews! We met them at mile 13 with our posters and our cheers, and Abby high fived everyone who passed (which made her quite a hit as people love encouragement while running)! Sharon made her goal of running under 5 minutes (4:59 and some seconds!) Adam had a...

The Circle Continues

Nov 27, 2013 - And The Adventure Begins...

My travels began early yesterday with my arrival at Cherry Capitol Airport just before 7am. After a 6 hour layover I arrived in Houston almost 1 hour late and without luggage. It turns out they sent my bag on an earlier flight, but there's nothing like fretting about lost luggage on a trip like this. Patrick was waiting for me when I arrived and the delay put us in prime time rush hour at 5pm. It took 2 hours and $7 in tolls to reach his hotel on the east side of Houston. We went to a great southern seafood restaurant, Pappadeaux, for good...

Nov 15, 2013 - Ingrid and Spring Texas

We left Henderson this morning and headed to Spring, Texas which is on the north end of Houston. The drive today was the least impressive for scenery since leaving Alberta, although it was a great day to travel. The only excitement today was when we got into 6 lane traffic as we we're approaching Spring. The Campground we stayed in was Rayford Crossing and RV Resort in the middle of Spring Texas. It was a nice campground and there was some ball fields beside it to walk Trapper in. Jan finally got to see one of her really good friends from...

Al & Jan on the Road

Nov 1, 2013 - Houston, Tx

Hier nous avons souper au resto du camping où pour $23 on a manger, Agnès et moi, chacun un demi "rack" de "baby back rib" fumés comme il se doit, avec deux "sides" et thé glacé à volonté. Pour dessert on a eu droit de piger dans la citrouille de bonbons. La sauce maison pour moi (plus piquante) et la sauce standard pour Agnès, ça nous a donné un souper extraordinaire. Les ribs fumés sont totalement différentes des ribs bouillis que l'on retrouve au Québec. Ce matin nous sommes parti pour le Northlake RV Resort situé dans le nord de la...
