Maybe I should have title this entry “R&R Mode Is Expensive”. I’m not sure which would be accurate. Since we started on this journey in January 2012, our coming back to Texas for a stay has been costly for us. We came back to Texas so we could get our annual physicals and of course visit family and friends.
In October 2012, we spent a week at Potter’s Creek in San Antonio enjoying a little R&R while we were between workamping locations. During that week, we took a trip to Camping World in New Braunfels to buy a new shower faucet for the 5th wheel we had at that time. By the time we were done, we had negotiated a deal to trade our 5th wheel and truck for a motor home. (You can read about that by clicking here.) After moving into our new wheels, we then went to Corpus Christi for a few days. While in Corpus Christi, we stayed at Sea Breeze RV in Portland and bought a car. (That story is here.)
Just like October/November 2012, we are between workamping jobs, we stayed at Potters Creek before coming to Corpus Christi, and we are staying at Sea Breeze RV. We passed our physicals with flying colors and are good to go for another year. We also got eye exams, new glasses and had our hearing aids cleaned and checked.We also traded the car we bought in 2012 for a more suitable vehicle that we can easily tow behind the motor home.
We had an opportunity to meet Phyllis and Len as they were headed to the Rio Grande Valley.I have been reading their blog The Easts Head West for some time. It is always good to meet folks along the way – especially those I follow by their blog.
