  3. Looking for a SECURE storage in Las Vegas area to park our 30” Class A for a couple of months starting in November. Doesn't have to be enclosed ($$$). Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  4. Woooo! $$$$ Maybe next Christmas. We are on our way to High Island, north of Galveston.
  5. Yes, made it to Magnolia Beach. Great little place! We were hung up for a bit at the Port Aransas ferry as they were not taking RVs until high tide. We had good service with our Sprint phones (surprised!) but my brother had diddly squat on his AT&T phone. I'm curious about your cell booster. What do you use?
  6. Great to be sharing information here! We just stopped at Padre Balli Park (county park) just north of PINS. It was $4 to dump and fill water! www.nuecesbeachparks.com They have a campground with electric and water for $25 a night or $150 a week. They are in the midst of adding a good number of campsites (35-40?) as well with full hookups on cement pads. Said it should be done by Spring Break, but - personally - it doesn't look that way.
  7. The earlier in the day you can arrive, the better your chance at getting a spot at Malaquite Beach. Bird Island is less frequented and we did prefer it over Malaquite, especially with the wind that we have now. Don't know what your rig is, but having ours blasted by salt spray for a few days wasn't up our alley. Bird Island campsites are parking lot style, but you do face the water and have a beautiful view of the sunset. Free camping is available right on the ocean once you pass the Malaquite Beach Visitor Center. Solid sand near the entry and there were a number of Class Cs down the beach farther as well. We will be leaving tomorrow for Magnolia!
  8. Thank you, Dennis. Malaquite Beach was filled so we headed over to Bird Island ($5 or $2.50 with Sr/Access Pass) and glad we found a spot. We found we prefer the lagoon side, parking right up to the water's edge, it's mellower and we'll have beautiful sunsets. We will be off tomorrow to explore the beach in our Jeep. Thank you for all the recommendations.
  9. Would that be Magnolia Public Beach right off North Ocean Drive? (Looking at Google Maps right now.) Thought we might start out at Padre Island National Seashore (Malaquite Beach) with our senior pass and explore our options from there.
  10. On our way to our first excursion out to explore Padre Island National Seashore and some four-wheeling down the beach. We'll be staying at the National Park. Would like some recommendations as we head north to Galveston on places to stay and things to do. We're on a budget but willing to bust it for nice places to stay near the water. Have Passport America. Thanks in advance.
  11. Thanks everyone! We are at Bayou Segnette State Park and it's a perfect spot. Unfortunately, the ferry is out of commission, so looks like we will have to drive over to the French Quarter.
  12. Howdy folks. We are passing through New Orleans and would appreciate any camping recommendations. We only have two days, so it will be a quick stop. Boondocking is our favorite option, but realize at this location that's an improbability. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  13. Yes, we are members of RVillage but have not had a chance to look it over until recently. So far, RVillage seems to be a great resource to find others of like mind and interests. We highly recommend it. Thank you for this link. We will add it to our bucket list. We changed our plans yesterday and we are heading back to our home base in Santa Cruz for a few weeks to take care of family matters. Won't be long before we are on the road again, however.
  14. Will do. Thanks for the heads up, Bobi and Dick.
  15. We will be in the Overton/Logandale area in the next few days (March 17-20) and would like to partner up with other off-roaders to explore trails around there. We are planning on boondocking at Stewarts Point. Feel free to message us. Recommendations are appreciated! Nick & Marianne SKP #117836 2011 Newmar Bay Star 1989 Suzuki Sidekick
