leaving maine...finally!!!
#21
Hi all, it's January 2/3 in just another hour...hope everyone had a nice Christmas and a safe new year's eve...ended up leaving the Denison area and went to East Texas for Christmas/ New years as temps were starting to drop and clouds/rain had moved into the area...
now temps have again dropped and after spending two nights without much sleep because of my being cold I have got a motel room for the night and am planning my next move to someplace warmer...looks like I'll be headed to Corpus Christi for a little while...little problems keep popping up and they're beginning to wear on me...but as my church pastor says, "this too shall pass" I just hope it passes quickly...
still not sure if I will get to some of the RTR, definitely interested in the Women's gathering following...just don't know how I'll be able to do it
as I'm not set up for boondocking...guess I'll just take it one day at a time and see where I end up...If anyone is ever in the SE part of Tx. I know of a really nice quiet COE park that won't cost a fortune...It's called Magnolia Ridge park...just about all the sites back up to a large reservoir, there are lot's of trees and several sites are somewhat secluded, they are all spaced nicely so one is not on top of your neighbor...just "beware of alligators" as the warning sign says as you enter the park...with my Access pass the site I had only ran me $8 a night and I had water and electric...no heat in the bathrooms though...it's a little NE of Houston and N of Beaumont, Tx...that's the news from here for now...Safe travels everyone!!

Glad to hear you're having a Texas winter now !
I carry extra sleeping bag(s) for those unexpected cold nights.
(OR just every night here in a MAine winter....)
The price is about the same as a room. Wink

Florida has not been so warm lately.... Last week in Jacksonville the high was mid-50s and raining: right now in Miami it's high around 60 for the next few days.

People are wearing parkas.

Sadly, one effect it will have in Florida is to cold-shock all the tropical wildlife that is not accustomed to it. The local manatee rescues will be busy this week. Sad
