RE: Tracfone Top Up from Canada

No Politics or it goes away, Forum Rules.

THANKS FOR THE SUGGESTIONS. IS IT ANYWHERE NEAR NORMAL TO WALK ACROSS AGAIN. Your bags going in will be scanned on the Mexico side, Costs $1.00 to go into Mexico and .30 cents to come out. The walking lines move pretty fast. They will do a facial recognition photo as you return to the United States. The Auto lines are usually backed up, sometimes for hours to get back. We crossed twice for dental work in the past 3 weeks. Stores, bars and restaurants are open. crowds are lite this time of year. Nearly 100% are wearing masks.

Apple Dental, Dr Edwardo Flores, Nuevo Progreso Mexico. 956-246-4100. We have gone there for 15 years, Clean, Modern and English spoken. Walk across the bridge, It is on the main floor of the dental plaza, left or east side of main entrance road immediately after entering Mexico. Call the listed USA phone number for an appointment. We have at least a dozen friends that also go to him. Don't drive across unless you want a long wait to get back through customs.

RE: Any RV parks left in RGV?

Retama Village, Bentsen Palm Village Resort, Green Gate Grove, Victoria Palms, Llano Grande, Chimney Park about 400 more but all may not be suitable for big rigs. Most parks will have also Park Models but a few RV only. Also check and ask at I suggest coming down rent a spot for a week or 2 and visit as many as possible until you find what you like. Many Parks have a discount for first time visitors, If not ask for a deal. Many may give you a deal. Let us know what you find. VERY FEW parks have converted to family parks, most are still 55+. Parks where you own your lot are often nicer with larger lots, You will often find lots for rent by owner. Visit and ask, most are by word of mouth or clubhouse post. This is our 18th season in the Valley.

RE: Vaccinations

6500 vaccines given today in the McAllen TX area today but they ran out much before the demand.

There are many flea markets and farmers markets throughout the valley. fruit and produce is almost giveaway cheap. A few less vendors this year due to covid.

Last year, there is a "newspaper" full of activities within the RGV rv parks. You are welcome to visit any of the events at any rv park. activities are much more limited this year and many parks are not open to outsiders due to covid. hopefully this changes back to the old norm soon.
pawatt 01/02/21 06:17pm Snowbirds

you would likely want to allow more than one day there are approximately 400 RV parks and retirement communities in the valley. going from Brownsville and South Padre island all the way to Palmview and beyond.

RE: Another article on Snowbirds, or the lack thereof

We are in an ownership park in South Texas, About 80% full, but we miss our Canadians. RV sites or permanent units? We have a mix of RV sites, park models, mobile homes, and even brick homes. The few vacancies are fairly equally distributed among these sites. Most recent years we have been close to 100% full. The park has been eerily quiet though. very few happy hours and if so they are small groups. nearly no activities and outside of the park visitors discouraged.

RE: Virus and RGV Rv parks

“We have no cases in our park...” Every person in your park has been tested? Retested? No one is asymptomatic? And lastly, every one telling you the truth? ---------------- sorry, it would be more accurate to say no known cases.

RE: Virus and RGV Rv parks

Pawatt I’m familiar with your park.. How are those residents doing and have you heard anything about the parks on your road? We have no cases in our park but have friends and acquaintances in many parks some which have active cases, not many but several. There are cases in the park next door. Our next door neighbor is a care giver there.

RE: Virus and RGV Rv parks

Yes, I know of cases in several parks, not a lot but several. Some people quite seriously ill. The Valley has some pretty strict restrictions and recommendations. Unfortunately some ignore them.

Happy Thanksgiving All

Happy Thanksgiving to all you Snowbirds out there. No big park potlucks this year but still thankful for what we have and to be here. Predicted to be 88 degrees here in South Texas today.
