Good Roads, Good Travel Day but A Not So Good RV Park

Alleyton, TX.

60 deg. overcast, E. wind @ 3 mph.

Forecast = Mostly cloudy with a chance of rain. Fog early. High of 70F. Winds from the East at 5-10 mph. Chance of rain 20%.

Ahhhhh!!!!! Smooth roads at last!!!!! 

We left the Gulf Coast RV Park in Beaumont about 10:10 yesterday morning and headed back to I-10. As I had mentioned yesterday, once we got into Texas, the roads really improved and that continued to be the case as we continued wandering west.

Now I don't know if all Texas highways are in good condition but I-10 was, (even as we zipped through "Beautiful downtown Houston"), all the way here to the Happy Oaks RV Park in Alleyton. In fact, the whole trip went well yesterday. The traffic wasn't too heavy and it moved along nicely without any delays. : )

Jim and Linda were at this RV Park about 3 years ago, and both of them agree that it has really gone down hill. : (  Almost all of the sites are full of RVs that appear to be owned by construction workers, the park is not well maintained and the person that Jim talked to when we arrived seemed like he didn't want to be bothered with us.

So, even though it's a Passport America park with low rates, we probably wouldn't stay here again.

Today, we'll continue heading West, ending up West of San Antonio in Boerne, TX. There's lots to see and do in that area and so the plan is to stay there for a few days.

 Did you know that Sam Houston, arguably the most famous Texan, was actually born in Virginia? Houston served as governor of Tennessee before coming to Texas.


  1. Roads in Texas are great. We rarely take the interstate. Most of the off roads have HUGE brims. If you have never driven the side roads, when a local wants to pass, just pull slightly off to the brim, and they just go around you. We are leaving Mission on Thursday and driving all the way up to Fort Davis using 83...not an interstate. Great road. ~wheresweaver

  2. Most Texas roads are in excellent shape. You will be surprised when you cross to New Mexico. (or anywhere out of the state). They deteriorate very quickly.
