Rain and Mud in south Texas

Trucks try to slow to make turn into our sight, The slick hill makes it very hard.Please Notice at the top of the page we now have a links page where we will try to post some of the History around us.

We have had three days and nights of rain and while it is nice for the farmers and holding the dust down for us it makes for a muddy mess when going in and out to sign in the many trucks that we have during the course of a day.

The water had went down a bit when this picture was take at times it was up on our porch

Most of the water was gone here at times its

Signing in Truck in Downpour

At times during heavy downpours the water

Our walkway along with the sign in front of our 5th wheel was under water

could not get off fast enough and we and we waded deep water. We have rather a steep hill going out to the highway and it is neat to watch the oil laden Trucks try to get up it in the rain it gets so slick the they have to back down it  several times to finally get over the top.

Burning off propane gas

Burning off Propane Gas

We do have some beautiful views at times though such as these when they burn off the Gas . Inez left this morning to go to town for supplies so we will have a great mess to clean all the mud off the truck when the rain stops. If you do not get it off before it is completely dry it is like as hard as a brick. Guess if we could get us some straw we could start us a brick business? Who knows might be a good way to help pass the time and if I could train bear and gizmo to walk in the straw

The McKnight’s Luke and Inez Making Memories

The day we returned to Cuero Texas

Well look we did get back to Texas, Had a great vacation even though we did not get to spend the full length of time that we wanted to in the lovely Lake Tahoe area. After arriving there I found that I had a terrible breathing, everyone kept telling me that it was just the Altitude (7,380 ft) and I would adjust to in in a few weeks. Well let me tell you if you have COPD you do not adjust. Took a broke tooth, Lots of test at the Doctors office and $1000.00 in dental repairs to figure it out. So we left beautiful Tahoe City And moved down to a lower location Tucson Az. Where we spent the remainder of our Vacation before returning to this land of Texas and the Gates. When I get some time I will try to update the site to include some pictures of our Vacation.

Our new front yard is Green

Wow look how green this is part of our new front yard.

Luke and Inez on the Move

Yes we are we left Texas on April 25th heading to William Kent Camp Ground just South of Tahoe City Califorina on Lake Tahoe Where we will be God willing untill The last of Sept 2013. We will be at The William Kent Camp Ground.

Our trip cross country has been both fun and eventful the first day as we were stopping for the day while pulling into the abilene RV park we blew out one of the tires on the 5th wheel.


Darn side wall of the tire just blew right out

Thanks to Good Samsroad service who came out and put the spare on while we were eating supper.






Santa Rosa State Park NM

The next evening we stayed at the Santa Rosa State Park New Mexico. We reall had a great nights rest here I think it was the first night we had sleep with out some noise( generator running, or pipes banging at the drilling rig ) in 6 Months and I must say it was really enjoyable. We could also enjoy some fishing here if we had the time. http://www.campsitephotos.com/campground/Santa-Rosa-Lake-State-Park

My Darling wife at the Crater

From Santa Rosa State Park we moved on to the Meteor Crater RV park at Winslow AZ. Where we enjoyed two nights and the views of the crater where a Meteor struck this lovely place some 50,000 years ago. Departed  here on 4-29-2013. still have not located a tire for the 5th wheel. Called a tire dealer in Kingman AZ and they said that they have a tire the size we need.

Arrived at hte tire center in Kingman Az. And while backing into the Maintenance bay for the young fellow to change the flat and put the spare back on the rack the guy that was spotting me into position noticed that both tires on the left side of the 5th wheel had seperated and had the tread split some 4 to 6 inches.


One of the split tire treads caused by wall seperation

( OH CRAP) this scared me bad for the past 2 or 3 days I had been running 70 to 75 miles per hour on some of the roughest roads in the country. Well any way 1 tire change turned into 4 tires at a cost of just shy of $1800.00. we got back on the road about 11:30 heading on to




RV Park at Nellis AFB< Las Vegas NV where we spent 2 wonderful nights.

Desert Eagle RV Park at Nellis AFB, Las Vegas NV. Where we plan to spend Monday and Tuesday nights and then head on toward Our destination. On Tuesday we went to the Petro truck stop to fuel up the truck so it will be ready for the run tomorrow and if you have never eaten at a Iron Skillet restaurant in their truck stops I would say you arwe missing some good eats. https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&q=petro+truck+stop+las+vegas&fb=1&gl=us&hq=petro+truck+stop&hnear=0x80beb782a4f57dd1:0x3accd5e6d5b379a3,Las+Vegas,+NV&view=text&ei=VCuAUfD8KrD0iwLFtYDQDQ&ved=0CDQQtQM

Okay we will sign off for this postg and try to post sooner next time like when we get to the camp ground in California.

Yes They did. Made it home to Georgia

We did got here three weeks ago today, the first week was very busy then the Friday after getting here we had a sick bug jump on the both of us and it has really put some don’t cares on us. Guess we were lucky to be in good health the whole time in Texas (1& 1/2Yrs) to come home and catch the crud. We had new Tile put throughout our home right before returning and I guess that taking out the old carpet and stirring up the dust that had been setting so long it triggered these bad bugs.

I will try to get some pictures and post in a couple. Have been getting rain most daily since we returned and we have been eating up the cooler weather.

Hope this will find all our Gate Guard Friends find and enjoying them self’s take care and the LORD willing we will be back out your way in the fall.

Down on Holmes Creek, New Hope Florida

Holmes Creek near where we are at Miller's Ferry

Yep we got here yesterday, Tuesday May 16th and I guess we will stay until the week-end before we head up the last 170+ miles to Valdosta and Home. We had thought about getting in some fishing in here with Cousins but the rain has changed that thought it has rained on and off since we got here and they promise more of the same right through the week-end so we will just settle for the good company and fellow ship
