Looking back…

Spring Break 2010 was spent camping beside the scenic Guadalupe River (Texas). The weather was beautiful and the river was loaded with rafters, kayakers and toobers. Our camp site was located right by a small falls, so we spent the majority of the time sitting in lawn chairs watching folks either quickly navigate through the falls or take a tumble in the river!

If you find yourself in Texas Hill Country and want to get your feet wet, consider spending a day on the river. Just try to keep your head above water. 😉

More information on the Guadalupe River can be found at: http://guadaluperiver.com/ .

If you find yourself in Panama City Beach for Spring Break… well, don’t forget there is more to the area than beautiful beaches. Located off Hwy. 98 (Back Beach Road) you’ll find the Man in the Sea Museum.

It is a great way to experience the history of underwater exploration. There is a small admission fee and the museum is open everyday except Mondays.

I took these photos while sitting in my lawn chair the other day… just goes to show you that sometimes it’s worth paying for a premium campsite! 😉

PHOTOS: The Guadalupe River (Texas) is a great recreation spot for toobers (that’s how they spell it here!), kayakers and rafters. As you can see from my photos – be prepared to see anything! 🙂

Texas Welcome Center

This is the first time we’ve been Winter Texans and we had no idea about what happens in March and April. Our Full-Timing friends neglected to tell us about all the excitement!

Some Winter Texans (also known as seasonal RVers or “snowbirds”) begin to move to their favorite campgrounds and resorts further north. They spend a couple weeks to a month or more at these campgrounds before heading for their summer destination.

Why? Reasons vary from the folks we’ve talked to, but most like to break up the long drive through Texas and visit with other Seasonals before they move on. We met  two couples from Kansas that stay in the same RV resort in the summer and drive down to Texas together in the winter. However, one couple stays in Brownsville, while the other couple spends the winter travelling the state visiting friends and family. They actually meet at this campground and stay for a couple weeks before heading back to Kansas together.

Traffic jam in the campground!

The park where we are staying (before leaving Texas ourselves) is filling up rather quickly with Seasonals waiting to leave for their summer destination. It’s been rather chaotic with old friends reuniting and new ones being made.

Now it’s Spring Break! With travellers having problems returning from Mexico and the way the economy is, many families have decided to vacation closer to home. And for most, that means heading to their favorite campground or RV resort!

Three rigs backing into sites at once.

The past week has been one of the busiest I’ve ever seen any campground! It is non-stop activity of campers coming in and out. At one point, I saw three rigs come in and have three sites directly beside each other. Since there was a line of traffic waiting, all three rigs began to back into their sites at the same time! It was rather exciting to watch, as there were several obstacles for each rig, as well as watching for the others backing.

So there has been plenty of excitement here as an influx of Winter Texans meet-up with Spring Breakers! 😉
