San Antonio Missions National Historical Park

San Antonio Missions NHP
One of the things that we love about our home state is its history. Texas is rich in history. And as we tour around the state, we're learning that a big part of Texas History can be found in the Spanish Missions. Our previous visits to the Alamo, Mission Espiritu Santo in Goliad, and Mission Tejas in Weches were very interesting. So while we were in San Antonio, we took the time to visit San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. We're so glad we did!... [Read the full post]

Texas Campgrounds and RV Parks Affected by the May 2015 Floods

May 2015 Park Closures
Following a drought that has hung over much of Texas since 2010, the entire state has seen significant rainfall during May 2015. In fact, many counties are seeing record rainfall for May.

Among the affected areas are many of our state parks, corps of engineer parks, and a few rv parks... [Read the full post]

RV Park Review: Rayford Crossing RV Resort, Spring TX

Rayford Crossing RV Resort, Spring TX
We first met the folks from Rayford Crossing RV Resort a couple of years ago, I guess, at the Houston RV Show. A generator maintenance appointment Monday morning at Cummins Southern Plains in Northeast Houston gave us the perfect excuse to visit this park for the weekend. We could enjoy a relaxing weekend in our RV, then bypass much of the Monday morning Houston traffic. Win-Win!... [Read the full post]

Nelson Wolff Municipal Stadium: Home of the San Antonio Missions

Wolff Stadium
As Native Houstonians, we've been to San Antonio many times over the years. San Antonio has so many options for travelers to see and do: the Alamo, the Riverwalk, SeaWorld, Fiesta Texas, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, all kinds of museums... the list can seem endless. But this summer, we began our quest to visit all of the minor league baseball parks in Texas, so we had to make time for a game at "The Wolff". And we are glad that we did!... [Read the full post]
