  1. Polk County Tax Office changes

    I don't know about online registration. The letter stating what I posted was sent in the envelope containing my truck reg/inspect sticker. Just thought it would be usefull for folks who use Livingston/SKP as their legal domicile and do business with Polk County. Dave
  2. Polk County Tax Office changes

    The letter was sent with my new truck sticker. This applies to Polk County. I posted what the letter said word for word. I don't know the why's or how comes. Something happened at the Polk County tax office.
  3. Received my truck registration/inspection sticker and the Polk county folks in the tax office now require for all transactions you will provide a copy of your Texas DL. Letter says "This includes anyone who is the registered owner of the vehicle as well as the check signer". "Requests without proper documentation will be returned". I'm sure this pertains to registration for all rigs, 5 er's, trailers, etc. Thought I would pass this along as I didn't see any other posts about this. Dave
  4. HDT Tires

    I run RY617 closed shoulder on the steer and 108R on the drives. All Yokohama. No more recaps on drives.
  5. Livingston RV Storage

    We are also planning to visit Europe in the spring for a month this trip. We also full time and have no home except the one we drag around. Wintering in a small family owned park in central Texas and plan to keep the rig under shore power in the same site and give set of keys to the family in case of emergency. Tractor will set too with batteries unhooked. Will just pay the freight and have peace of mind while gone. Dave
  6. Tri-park In Pecos

    What's the deal with Tri-Park in Pecos? No website comes up nor is the park on the park list in th SKP magazine. Has the park gone private and if so why and when? Last reviews were not good and not many options out that way. Dave
  7. Drop KOA Value club Membership

    We have stopped at four KOA parks in the last five years, with two being used multiple times due to one being close to a major highway we and the other one close to our son. The visit to the close-to-highway park will probably BE the last one as we will use a private park down the road from them. Workamper who was at the desk this day instead of the owner who we are aquainted with decided we wouldn't fit in the open pull throughs which we had stayed in many times, and determined that 1, would have to disconnect truck if we used them or 2, park on north side in the open where no one was and extremely bad wind and rain was in forcast. This was Kansas. Or 3 we could upgrade to premium site in main park and pay 20.00 more. We had res's and it was starting to storm. Not wanting to argue at the desk we took the premium but we wrote the owners are still waiting an answer. Will keep value card as we will use it to stay near son and nights cover the cost of card when stay at that park.
  8. DW and I had work done in Los Algodones in March of this year by Dr. Jose Esteban Diaz. He is located in the office of Dental Guzman, which is left at first intersection and 3/4 way down the right side of street. He does general, oral surgery, implants and of course crowns and partials. We are pleased with his work and the price. Dave
  9. If you are in Texas - HDT's are not welcome at Buc-ees

    Bobtailed to Buc-ees in Bastrop today. 100 gallons diesel pumped. No one came out or said word one.
  10. Adventureland Amusement Park in Altoona (Des Moines) Iowa hires 300 plus work campers every season. Without the work campers the amusement park an water park could not operate. Check out the website and go to employment. You will be outside but you also need to like to be around and interact with people of all ages. We will be doing the season again this year.
  11. I replied in the wrong topic due to the new format. sorry
  12. Fort Parker is near Mexia which notheast of Waco. For the non Texas folks Mexia is pronounced "Mah-hay-ah"


  13. SnowGypsy, I have sent you a PM pertaining to volunteer/paid positions. Dave
  14. Yes. I actually called twice and talked with the same person because I wanted to make sure that I heard it correctly. I thought it would be a nice change from the SA KOA where we have stayed several times. I thought wrong. Dave
  15. We don't carry a car but carry a custom golf cart that I drive up and down with ramps. Total length tractor and rig is shade under 70'. Canceled res in a San Antonio area rv park when they said I could not park tractor on the site even though the site(s) are plenty long."The owners don't want them parked and you'll have to park over by the hotel where the 'semi's' park. Why?? "They tear up the road". But class A's are OK. Dave
