How to Drive a Large RV – First Time Driving Our 40 Foot Long RV (in Port Lavaca, Texas)

From Kat (Christa): I would like to admit that I was very afraid to get behind the wheel of our gigantic, 40 foot long, bus. On May 18, 2018, on our way home from the Texas coast, I decided to give it a try.

 

Full Time RV Living – RV Camping Vacation at Camp Riverview in Concan, Texas

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend camping with family on the Frio River in Concan, Texas. We went hiking, swimming, tubing, had a great time with family. It was truly wonderful and we are looking forward to our next trip.

 

Texas Sand Castles & RV Beach (Part 2) – Free Beach Bon-docking in Texas

 

We’ve falling in love with the breathtaking RV beaches, made from mostly crushed shells, in Magnolia, Texas. Free camping, with minimal accommodations – no hookups, not dump site, no showers, just a few garbage receptacles and a spectacular view of the ocean. Not bad at all, especially considering the price.

Texas Sand Castles & RV Beach (Part 1)

This week we head down to Corpus Christi and Port Aransas with hopes to catch SandFest in Port Aransas. The small and sandy roads (along with the promise of 100,000+ people) in the small town of Port A left us feeling a bit uneasy.

Fearing our rig’s large size may get us into trouble near the crowded beach, we decided to look for adventure elsewhere.

Weekend RV Escape – Camping at Granger Lake

We took a spontaneous trip to Granger Lake this past weekend, not far from home base in Hutto, Texas. Cloudy skies and temperatures in the low sixties kept us indoors for most of the weekend, although we did manage to sneak out for a drive around the dam and park grounds.

It was easy for us to book a last minute, site that included electric and water hookups with access to an on-site dumping station. This campground allows dogs on leash, even long leads and tie-outs (with supervision).

Songbirds sang to us through open windows as we enjoyed spectacular sunsets and lakefront views. The sites were spacious, and easily had room for large RV’s – our 40-foot bus had room to spare in the 50 foot paved, RV pad.

On a warmer weekend hiking, boating, and swimming would have been our top priorities. We’ll need to return in the summer to take advantage of all that Wilson H Fox (a US Army Corps of Engineers park) offers.
