Dec 21, 2012 - Christmas Break Roadtrip (December 13-17, 2012)

Day 1: Me, Alex, and Brandon left early in the morning and got to our hotel in Gatlinburg right around dark. Somehow we were actually able to get a room, and later we went eat at the Hard Rock. Day 2: We went to some knife place, then ate at the Pizza Hut in Gatlinburg. We then went to hike up to the Chimney Tops. We reached the summit, which was badass. We had KFC that night. Day 3: We hiked to a waterfall in North Carolina. We also got lost in the woods for a long time, which sucked. Later that night we fucked shit up in Gatlinburg, and...

Nov 26, 2012 - Back to Houston

Well, another year gone. We made it back to Houston and had the storage doors on the RV fixed. Have some other, minor, problems that will be fixed next year. For now, the RV is back in storage. We got to stay at a fantastic Marriott Residence Inn at a great price, thanks to my daughter's partner. While there we took some time to do some firing on a pistol range, where Julieann showed her true colors as another Annie Oakley. We also took a tour of downtown --- as in the "original" --- Houston to include the underground tunnels that connect...

2012 Travels

Nov 20, 2012 - Houston, TX

Texas at last! There is a sign when you enter Texas on I-10 that says "Houston 70 miles, El Paso 874 miles" and it never fails to blow my mind that you can drive that far in a straight line on the same road and still be in the same state! I once met a customer at work that had another one. She lived in Brownsville, TX (the southern tip of Texas), and she said "If you can drive from where I live and be in a different state on the first day, then you are some driver!". She said it in a Texas drawl that doubled the laughs. I had to come to...

The Great Escape

Nov 7, 2012 - Houston, TX, October 30-31, Hector F. Sanchez Visit

Houston, TX October 30-31 It was a relatively short ride from San Antonio to Houston. We were thankful for that as we had been putting some serious miles on the coach the last few segments. We had another visit to make here in Houston. Anita’s oldest brother Hector, otherwise known as Torci has three children, two sisters and Hector Jr, also known as Torci. Torci Jr. is an Engineer in Houston and bought a huge house there in a very nice neighborhood. We visited his oldest sister, Vivianette, who lives in Belpre, Ohio in a previous RV...

Hi all, - Too toooooo tired last night to write! Got up later than usual - what a treat! We had a lovely breakfast and then it was off to the Space Centre for the day...Moe was in her glory! Wow - it was very cool...we took a tram tour of the facility and then spent a ton of time at the main building seeing movies and looking at displays. There were many items that were original..but I am going to let Moe tell you later in her own words. I really enjoyed it and even got a little emotional in one of the movies!!! We came back to the hotel...

Oct 29, 2012 - Flight to Chicago

I flew from Guayaquil to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, today to visit the US for the month of November. My itinerary was to be Panama City/Newark/Milwaukee but Hurricane Sandy intervened. I ended up with a much better route through Houston. And who should I see in the terminal? First, a Sterling Kerr look-alike and then Efren Gonzalez, an old friend of mine from Ajijic in Mexico. Efren is a successful artist whom I have known since he was a young man. He was in Austin and Houston for shows of his works at the Mexican consulate, the Water Color...

Beaumont, TX to Houston, TX 85 miles We were both up before 7am so that would mean we would get an early start, right? Ha! We ended up talking with our neighbor for quite some time and then started to get ready to leave. Then when we were just minutes away from pulling out a new neighbor pulled in beside us and we ended up talking with them for a long time. We finally pulled out by 12pm but we sure had a nice visit with very pleasant folks this morning. As we were chatting with our neighbor they told us they had just left Houston and had...

Jul 24, 2012 - Houston Texas

we had the hotel breakfast then we Nana, Jordan and i went to see the Riverwalk because my mom kept saying we have to go see it and that's its really close by. There were a lot of restaurants by the water but the water was green and kinda dirty. We saw a boat on the river. Then we headed to Houston Texas to Tita Corette's house. When we got here, we went to eat out with them. We ate at this chinese restaurant. It was ok. I guess they served frogs there coz i saw then in a bowl. People probably order them then they cook it for them. That's...

Jun 4, 2012 - Houston Visit

Had a wonderful visit with my brothers and sisters in Houston. Was able to get a nice parking spot in a Mobile Home and RV park very close to where they live. My brother Ralph was such a blessing as he loaned us tools so Larry could work on a small repair job he needed to do. He also bought us breakfast at a local cafe that was delicious. My sister Mary Frances and her husband Dean bought us our lunch. Do we rate or what!! My other brother Mike and his wife Terri joined us for lunch so we had a really good visit. We also got to see Mary...
