We made it to the Rio Grande valley!!

When we set out on the journey this year, we had planned on going over to Arizona, but with the realization that we needed new tires for the RV, we decided to come down here and sit tight for the winter. While we were in Columbus, Texas at Colorado River Thousand Trails park I saw an ad for Tropic Winds in Harlingen. This is an Encore Park, but they have 40 sites reserved for Thousand Trails members.  Members can be on those sites for 2 weeks and then move to another site for a week at $170. Thereafter, back to the Thousand Trails sites for another 2 weeks, etc. I felt that was a really good deal. Then, while surfing the internet, I came across a special offer of a month at a Sun Resort for only $199. After some phone calls we are now at Kenwood RV Resort for a month. I felt that we would rather be at a park, continually, over Christmas and New Year. This way we can get to know people so that we will be a part of the community for the holidays.

This is our view down the road from the site.
Site 145

This is a smallish park right off the main highway (I 2) in La Feria, and presently the park is about 30% empty. We are pretty central here and have everything we need. Our site is right at the back of the park, and is fairly large. We have full hookup with 50 amps. We will be paying extra for electricity, but that is fine.

The park has an indoor pool and hot tub, an exercise room, pool room, library in the lounge, horseshoes, shuffleboard and there is yoga three times a week.  Other activities include water aerobics, cards, pot luck dinners, quilting, music jams, concerts, dancing etc. etc. There is no excuse for being bored here.

On the 11th of January we move over to Tropic Winds.

  1. Not far at all, we are at Bentsen Palms. Even at home you're not far from us. We should try and hook up while we're down here.
