Leaving Texas “Hill Country” on Tuesday, November 22, driving to Giddings, Texas in the “Lakes and Prairies”. We spent the night in a park located on a longhorn cattle ranch. Rustic, but well laid out, full hook-ups, and clean. The cattle did not seem to mind that we spent the night with them.
On to Texas “Piney Woods” where we are staying until Monday, November 28, in Livingston, Texas (approximately 80 miles north of Houston). This is the headquarters for the Escapees RV Club (www.escapees.com) and the location of a large Escapee RV park. If you are avid RV’ers, this is a worthwhile club to join. They have 19 RV parks located around the country and the nightly fees are only $14/night + electricity (full hook-ups). A welcome reprieve from the other RV Parks’ average of $35/night and up.
The Escapees have been providing our mail service for the last two years and we are very pleased with the service. It is efficient and the people are very professional and friendly. We simply call them and ask for the mail to be sent to the RV Park where we are located. The mail arrives two days later. By the way, the friendly part seems to be a theme all over Texas.
The time spent in Livingston will be to catch up on laundry, cleaning, and groceries. And maybe a little R&R in the warm east Texas weather.
