Pirate Ship sails in the Laguna Madre behind the KOA
I purchased less than $200 in gas for the RV since last November and still have 3/4 tank. I did not pay rent at the Wildlife Refuge. The rent at the KOA was only $140 a month, and I was paid for every hour worked - some campgrounds only give you an RV site for the hours worked. The rent would have been $850 a month if I did not work here. I was going to stay here anyway, waiting for my granddaughter to be born. I am very grateful that I was able to get a job at the KOA. (I bugged them, sent emails several times, and then finally a job opened up) It was not difficult work, I learned a new reservation system, and I had fun working with the kids activities.
My daughter and son-in-law have found a really nice house in San Antonio and I will follow along. I'm sure they will need some babysitting help while they get settled.
Li'l Sophia is growing ~ almost 13# at 5 weeks
It won't be easy to live in a big city in an RV, but I found an RV park that is only 2 miles from the house. There is a bus stop in front and a bike trail is alongside the RV park.
I will probably stay in Texas through the winter months and then move on to a job, hopefully in a National Park, for next summer. I don't think I will be working this fall and winter.
Since November 2011, I have traveled for about 6 months and worked for about 18 months. I still have boxes, in the outside compartments of the RV, that need to be sorted. The word for this year is "FINISH". I want to get everything done and start fresh in 2014.
I need/want to get the remodeling in my RV finished. I finished the bed in April. It's the other side of the RV, where the larger dinette is, that needs to be changed. I took out the table and just have the 2 benches and a folding table. It really needs to get done, it is driving me crazy.
I just need to find someone reliable to move the fresh water tank for me. I purchased the RV at Lazydays in Tampa, they have a location in Tucson and I have been in contact with them. I sent pictures and a description of what I want changed and am waiting for a reply. If they can do the job, I may take a trip there to get it done. Otherwise, I need to find someplace in Texas to get the work done. I am also waiting to find out if it is possible to have my passenger seat swivel around to face the center of the RV.
Time to move on to new adventures........................
I will probably purchase a Texas State Parks pass and visit many of the parks this fall and winter.
