  1. Just finished my one weekly trip picking up groceries and the mail, afterwards I made a circuit of the Park. I don’t remember the last time it was so full. It’s sad that you can’t be made to feel as welcome as normal, but in these times a wave is the best we can do for a greeting & a welcome .👋🏻👋🏻
  2. Actually, the Texas travel restrictions address only those flying in from NY or NO. When I had to go to NO for business I would always drive, it was easier and quicker than flying. I imagine that all of the Katrina residents Houston picked up flew in....yah on I10 airline !
  3. The big value adder for the properties at RE is the sense of community, brought by being mostly populated by similar minded RV'ers. Try a Zillow search. edit...or ex RV'ers
  4. I’ve just seen this, I know NOTHING about it, or it’s offering, but it’s an idea that’s past due. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/transcore-introduces-rv-toll-pass-with-nationwide-coverage-300946562.html
  5. The price of the ferry helps keep the traffic down. It’s been to many years since I made the trip to have any useful information but 10 yrs ago you could boondock about any where you wanted. The provincial parks we nice, not much in the way of amenities though. Slum camp "RV Parks" were nonexistent.
  6. We used to do 6-8 months in our Sprinters. The thing with a B is, you live more outside, & travel more. Now if you get stuck, as we once did in Homer, waiting in the rain for 10 days on your mail....better REALLY like each other. Now we travel in a Travato only for 2-3 months before we have medical appointments.
  7. Info here. https://www.fnblivingston.com/personal-other-services.htm#shred
  8. I’m posting this info here for any who need medical in Livingston, or travelers who may want access to a medical facility. This will be another use it or loose it benefit I’m sure. Cross Posted from the Escapees park email. "Medical Clinic at CARE - Monday and Thursday mornings Dr. Sandra Hutchison operates a clinic here at Rainbow's End at Pearl's Cottage which is near CARE. Mondays and Thursdays 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Lindsay Mabe, Nurse Practitioner. Call for an appointment (936) 328-5612 Open to all Escapees and the public. "
  9. I’m on day 3 of my 14da free trial and I’m pleasantly surprised. I have a Mobley account so the data use isn’t a lot of concern but I try to minimize it. I use a Roku stick in my TV as a receiving unit, with video quality set to 720 to minimize use, data consumption is still ~.5 gb hr.. The system, at that resolution seems to work fine down to 5MPS. For $50 I get unlimited DVR & local channels, in addition to a lot of other "stuff". The locals can be set manually, or automatically using your internet location. We (I) got tired of moving sat equipment, then dinking around with CS to get the locals changed. I’ve gotta say that, so far, I’m impressed with the product. Just a user, no ties to the company, other than Google, who know everything anyway.
  10. OK, what does OTG mean, other than On The Go?
  11. After living in Scandinavia and China I've seen a couple of "solutions" & I don’t believe we would find either acceptable. Learn to say " No money, go away" in what ever language works.
  12. Not a problem today, but a cold front just passed. That usually brings a flock of Snow Birds until they get frozen to their northern roosting place.
  13. I’m going to post an excerpt just received in the Rainbows End park email. Hopefully it’s OK either everyone. " CARE - Reopening Clinic and Meals on Wheels Dr Sandra Hutchison confirmed she will be at the Activity Center Social, this coming Sunday 11/24 to discuss opening an office in Pearl’s cottage 1/1/2020. (Come at 6:00 p.m. for ice cream social, discussion will follow. David Horton) Initially, the office will be open two days each week with Nurse Practitioner Lindsey. NP Lindsey offered to make house calls, if she does not have patients in the office at the time of request. We are encouraging the Doctor to also bring in specialists, if possible. This service will be for all of Rainbows End (deeded and transient RV’ers). If you want a close, convenient health resource (that you could walk to) come to this Sunday’s Social to ask questions. For folks that travel and domicile in Texas, needing annual checkups, this is the ultimate convenience. The CHI clinic, in Pearls, left due to lack of participation of Escapees. Escapee CARE Inc. has no connection with Dr. Hutchinson other than to offer the use of the cottage as an office. If you want a convenient Health Resource, Use it or Lose it! Also beginning 1/15/2020, Escapees CARE, Inc. will offer Rainbows End folks “Meals on Wheels”. Our goal initially will be to deliver lunch to folks in the campground, Monday to Friday, for $9.00 each (or $16.00 for 2 at same address), If there is sufficient need expressed. Initial details include prepayment of 10 meals to get on the delivery list and at least 10 folks (10 stops) signed up by December 15! Normal lunches are $ 6.00, plus $1.00 for special take out containers and $ 2.00 to the person delivering. Week-ends could be added if there are sufficient volunteers to drive. Get your questions answered at Sunday’s Social. Russ Johnson carefd@escapees.com "
