Jan 3, 2014 - League City, TX

Fri, 03 Jan: Back to the Gulf... Brrrr, where did winter come from? We're supposed to be in the "sunny south" but when the thermometer reads 28°F you gotta wonder! Despite the cold we got Carpe ready to go and rolled wheels at 0848. Today's run, a mere 100 miles, took us south along Texas 146 from Livingston to Galveston Bay. We left 146 south of Houston and took I 45 south a few miles to League City, our current location. The drive was lovely with sunny weather and light traffic until we got near the Houston metro area. Even then, late...

2014 Travels

Jun 7, 2013 - Houston Astros

We took a tour of Minute Maid stadium, built in 2000 to replace the Astrodome (first retractable roof ballpark). A group of 15 boys were on our tour, although we first thought it would be terrible, they were well behaved and asked lots of questions which added to the tour. The tour ran longer so we got our moneys worth. The stadium was being resodded so we couldn't go on the ground floor, sod comes from Georgia and is a special grass native only in Argentina and West Africa. It's suited to low sunlight - due to the stadium dome. We toured...

Jun 6, 2013 - San Jacinto

Today we visited the site where Texas declared independence from Mexico 4/21/1836. First we toured the Battleship USS Texas. This ship was originally commissioned in 1914 and was utilized in both WW1 and WWII, it saw action on D Day as well as brought troops back from Japan at the end of the war. The ship was first coal fired and then converted to oil which is more efficient. We toured 3 decks on the ship and were able to see how one of the cannons was loaded. Good view of the Houson harbor as well. We then visited the monument at San...

2013 trips

Jun 5, 2013 - Galveston

Today was clear and warm but not unbearable and we went to see Galveston. First we drove through the historic Strand district with buildings from the late 1800's and on - these were the ones that survived the 1900 hurricane that killed 6,000 residents. We saw a movie about the hurricane, about 13' of water was driven across the island and many people were washed out to sea, it was a terrible tragedy. Of course, there was some notice from the weather service that people didn't heed as they had never seen such a storm before. We also saw a...

Jun 1, 2013 - OTRA - TX - League City

6/1/13 Hi ho! Hi ho! Back on the road we go!! Left this morning around 10:00 for the 55-mile trip south to League City where we'll be staying at the Safari RV Park for 5 days while we sort stuff back to where it belongs and just sort of rest up and get re-acclimated to the Ti after our motel stay. Don't plan on doing much here; just relaxing...and geocaching...and restocking the fridge. Ran into traffic on the way south on I-45. Seems everyone is headed to the beaches in Galveston...the weekend place for Houstonians. With the hot, very...

Very lovely day considering the hassles involved

3/5/13, Tuesday This morning, we had to wait for Robin's prescription to be finished at WalMart and for my camera to arrive. (I forgot it at Connie's so she fedex'd it to me.) Then, about 3:00 pm, on the road again! We drove to League City, TX (known for it's baseball) about 20 miles south of Houston on the way to Galveston. More wind!! When we hit Houston, we found ourselves on TOLL Roads. After $16 in tolls (3 toll booths), I asked the lady "How many more of these ARE there??" She said this was the last one IF we got off at League City....

2013 USA Trip

Jul 4, 2012 - American Flags!

We spent the 4th of July in the next city over from Kemah, which we currently call home. League City has a population of about 90,000, so it isn't small city. It seemed that most of the people were in the Town Square, where music was supplied by many local bands, food and drink was supplied by the city, for no charge. Asking around at one of the hot dog lines, I was told by one of the food preparers, that the city purchased 40,000 hot dogs and about half that many in hamburgers, along with cases of soft drink(pop) for you southerners. As...

Dec 5, 2011 - Houston, TX

Greetings from League City, Texas, a suburb on the south side of Houston. We are here to visit the Johnson NASA Space Center, battleship USS Texas, San Jacinto Battlefield National Monument and Galveston. Unfortunately, it has been raining since we got here; not good for sightseeing but very much needed in drought-stricken Texas. Hopefully the weather will clear over the next few days and we'll be able to attach some more interesting pictures.

Jan 6, 2011 - Johnson Space Center

Visit to Johnson Space Center Today, I took the opportunity to visit the Johnson Space Center, which is only about 10 minutes from Jared and Megan’s house. I actually went two days, as there is lots to see. The entrance to the site is marked by the two T-38’s on the highway. This is one of the planes that my brother flew when he went through pilot training in the Air Force. This is actually the second plane the new pilots fly. Would you believe the T-38 is only 12 feet high, and has a top speed of 842 MPH?? How’d you like to take that for...

Apr 26, 2010 - Houston Area

On 4/25 we took rest and relaxation day. We went to church and a locally recommended Mexican restaurant that was very good. Later that day we took a short drive to Kemah, and walked around the Boardwalk which was an amusement park, boardwalk on the Bay and restaurants. It was interesting watching the people. Today we drove to Galvaston and visited the "Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum. It was on an actual oil rig(non working). It costs 1 million dollars per day to operate an offshore oil rig. Than they have to transport it to...
