RE: Thoughts on the 'need' factor of a main line surge protector

50 years of RVing and never used one. Lost a microwave once, not sure why. And we have traveled coast to coast and border to border and beyond.

RE: Enjoy it while we can

I think we had the warmest January in our 17 Winters in the Valley.

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

If you are outgoing most will reciprocate, Start the conversation, Ask questions and ask for advice.

RE: Mission Texas Weather

If you dig a little deeper the difference in the Hi and Low temperatures in S Fla is 10-12 degrees most days during the winter. In S TX the average is 15-20 degrees plus the 5 degrees ^^^^ adds up. The temperature in Miami dropped to a nippy 40 degrees Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service, and the wind chill was in the mid-30s. Apparently Iguanas were falling from the trees and residents were warned to watch out for falling Iguanas. Saw this on the news tonight in the Rio Grande Valley, I am serious this was really on the news.

RE: South of San Antonio

Have not heard any such thing yet here in Palmview Texas, 2 Miles from Mexico. Lots of Canadians here. Many own property in area parks.

RE: Near Brownsville, Texas

I can't for the life of me see the attraction to the RGV area.... B.O.. We can afford to spend the Winter pretty much anywhere we want. Maybe not Key West, yet we have chosen to spend the past 17 Winters in the Rio Grande Valley. I could write pages of what we love about the Valley.

RE: RV Parks in southern Texas

Nearly 400 parks in the Rio Grande Valley, Basic to deluxe. $200 - $900 a month. Just come without reservations, book a site for a week and visit as many parks as you can and find what you like. We have spent 17 seasons in the Valley within 2 miles of the border. I would say is is much safer than many other parts of the country. Check the crime stats and compare to like size cities in your area. You will be surprised.

RE: RV campground Ideas

Consider a route that also goes past Mesa Verde on the way to Arches. Really Neat. Nice campground right near the entrance.

RE: Merry Christmas Snowbirds

We are still in Florida, pawatt. We actually bought a home in a motorhome community and will within the next year bring all our stuff currently in storage down here. We came here because our son lives here and even though we are still intending to travel, we will have a more permanent setup here. Next up is to head to Mission in a couple weeks and start pulling out stuff we want to keep that is currently there at our place. Eventually our Texas casita will go up for sale. Not sure how I feel about that yet, but no sense have two places. Take care and Happy New Year! Dale Sounds Good, a change of scenery is nice. Safe Travels.

RE: Near Brownsville, Texas

If you want to know the safety of an area, go to Google street view you can see if homes have bars on their windows. That’s all I need to know a area. Really, I thought those were Tiny Jails just like the Tiny houses.

Isolated incident and they are locked up. They were from the USA but thought they could escape to Mexico.

RE: US post new Mexican travel warnings

Other countries have travel advisories for the United States of America. Where can we hide. We live 2 miles from the Mexico Border. Significantly safer than many USA cities.

RE: It’s that time again...to have some fun

Spent a month in Edenburg TX. Park was friendly and cheap. Nothing in that area will get me to go back..... No scenery, Never felt very safe. B.O. Scenery = World Birding Centers, State Parks, National Wildlife Refuges, National Butterfly Center, Historic Sites, Rio Grande River, Ranch Land, South Padre Island & Mexico. "Never felt very safe" --- Our 17th Season and we have never felt unsafe and pretty much go everywhere except Renosa.

RE: It’s that time again...to have some fun

Looks like we will be in the 80's here in Palmview Texas, Christmas Eve, Christmas day and the day after then in the 70's. Can't complain about that. Yes there are parks that charge about $200. A month for a 5 month stay and there are some fancy places that charge $800. Most rates are plus electric. Nice Budget Park

RE: Bugs

We have always had quite a lot of people from Quebec in the Western Valley. They tend to move around to find the best deal.

RE: RV snowbirding or MX or Carribean

Wherever you eventually land, you will want good neighbors, those like former RVers who are used to looking out for each other and their property. Next, will be the appeal of the area such as; 5 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, rivers to navigate, golf, nearby medical and dental, fine restaurants, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and over 80 activities, and dozens of events. Two rec halls, horseshoes (at least one resident champion!), all the senior sports and then some. A great pool, Tiki hut for picnic. the Imperial River as a border. Check it out at www.imperialbonitaestates.com What is the lot size of the regular lots? Are there Park models?
