Oct 28, 2015 - Day 10...San Antonio

A late start today, after the Margarita's last night, it took us a while to get going....back to the River Walk...just love this place. We caught the bus again, this time, a passenger on the bus, had a lovely black bracelet on his ankle!!!! No incidents today, except the bus went a different route, so we got off, when we thought was right...lol We were a bit peckish, so went for Nacho's & Beer...as you do... Decided today, we would go & see The Alamo, very interesting part of US History, these guys really had to protect themselves, no...

Oct 27, 2015 - Day 9...San Antonio

Early start today, up and gone at 8.00am. Heading for San Antonio. Landscape is very similar to previous days, we did notice for the first time since our Tramway ride, a huge wind farm. Texas is known for its strong winds, so great to see they are using nature to their advantage. Also, the smell of oil as we're travelling along, with small Oil Wells. Nothing huge, just a couple of small tanks, and working pump. We've now clocked up 1200 miles. As we had an early start, had an early rest stop today, with free wi-fi (no internet whilst...

Oct 20, 2015 - Day 70 and 71 San Antonio, TX

October 18, 2015 Day 69 San Antonio, TX We went to 2 malls to look for a dress for MaKayla’s homecoming dance but had no luck finding the right dress in the right size. We then went to the Alamo in downtown San Antonio. Here is only two building from the original compound that are still standing; the church and the barrack. There was a guy that gave a narrative of events from the building of the mission to present day including the siege of the Alamo in 1836. October 19, 2015 Day 70 San Antonio, TX This was the day that the Bachman’s...

Oct 19, 2015 - We have finally arrived in San Antonio, Texas

Amazing city and lovely RV park, what else could we ask for for the start of our new life! We took a tour of the Alamo and the San Antonio Missions, had a riverboat ride, and visited two old west museums. Our driver (who thought he was taking us to the airport) was a bit confused and we got downtown too late for the full tour of the Alamo, so Erick and I bravely jumped on a bus and took a full guided tour

Oct 17, 2015 - Days 63-68 San Antonio, TX

October 12, 2015 Day 63 Conroe, TX to San Antonio, TX 20 miles east of San Antonio, a wild turkey (NOT the kind you drink) flew into the Bachman’s windshield and severally damaged it. It stayed intact and they were able to continue to the RV park but it will have to be replaced before we can continue further West and home. They contacted their insurance company to have it replaced and they sent someone out to make measurements so they can locate a replacement. We had planned to stay here for 2 nights and visit San Antonio but it looks like...

Oct 12, 2015 - San Antonio, Texas

October 12 We left the Thousand Trails campground this morning around 0930. We headed south for San Antonio, Texas which is 273 miles away. We had light traffic until we got close to downtown Houston where we picked up the Interstate 410 Bypass. We were on the bypass for about 5 miles where we connected up with south bound Interstate 10. We took Interstate 10 south to the Interstate 410 in San Antonio which is the San Antonio Bypass. At Exit 44 on the 410 we got onto Roosevelt Avenue and three miles later we were registering at the...

Oct 12, 2015 - San Antonio, TX

Day 1 - This was a driving day from Conroe to San Antonio. It was a fairly easy drive once we got through commute traffic and onto I-10. It was a nice day with lots of sun and no wind. About 20 miles from San Antonio, with Margaret driving, a wild turkey decided to fly in front of the windshield. We knew it was not going to get across but hoped that it would not hit the windshield. Margaret ducked (don't know how that was going to help) then BANG and the windshield shattered. We kept driving into the Travelers World RV Park. After getting...

Jun 10, 2015 - Day 17 June 9 2015 Alvin to Galveston To Columbus TX

Day 17 June 9 2015 Alvin to Galveston to Columbus TX This will be the day we hope to make it to Galveston to walk the beach there in search of shells. The morning was partly cloudy at 72 degrees. I believe we arrived at Steward Park West Beach in Galveston around noon. The fee to enter started at $8, than went to $16 because of the trailer, but we got in free because I was a Veteran, just had to show my VA card. It was quite hot and humid so we were sweating profusely the entire time we were walking the beach. The water was a bit murky...

Jun 10, 2015 - Day 16 June 8 2015 San Antonio to Alvin TX

Day 16 June 8 2015 San Antonio to Angleton TX Our morning started off with 74 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. The plan for the day was to stop in Matagorda to walk the beaches looking for shells, than find a nearby RV Park for the night. We did make it to a public beach, in Matagorda but there wasn’t much to see but trucks, jeeps and muddy water, with just a few small shells lying around. There’s lots of trash that was washed up on shore from past storms. Most of the day was spent after leaving Matagorda looking at the road, clouds,...

Jun 7, 2015 - Day 15 June 7 2015 San Antonio tx

Day 15 June 7 2015 San Antonio 73 degrees this morning with no clouds. It’s supposed to get up into the 90’s with partly cloudy skies. It actually didn’t seem as hot or muggy as it had been the past couple of days. Today was our tour day. We boarded a bus that took us downtown to another office across the street from the Alamo where our tour starts. We opted for the half day tour which goes to the Alamo, Mission San Jose, Mission Concepcion and El Mercado, a Farmer’s Market. Our tour guide walked us across the street and gave us a run down...

Day 14 June 6 2015 San Antonio TX It’s our second day in San Antonio, might be here another day, who knows, there’s so much to see. Another warm to hot day, with a 70 degree starting temp for the morning. We headed out to visit with Luke, Robin & Ambrose at Fort Sam Houston where Luke is attending nursing school for The United States Army. It was a fun visit, seeing where they live and visiting with them. Ambrose is such a good natured little boy and he is going to be a very handsome man. All five of us took off to have an early dinner. It...

Jun 5, 2015 - Day 13 June 5 2015 Comfort to San Antonio TX

Day 13 June 5 2015 Comfort to San Antonio TX Up at the crack of dawn, cloudy 68 degrees. The birds in this area were just a chattering away. Saw two Cardinals; one mostly red, that Leona said was the male and one mostly gray with a fringe of reddest head, which is the female. Arrived in San Antonio; Whoopee! It was a crazy ride on I-35 making sure we were in the right lane, so we could make the off ramp without flying across 5 lanes of traffic, pushing the semi’s off the road. We are staying in an RV Park south of the main part of town....
