New Trip Beginning With An “End Job” Setup!!!

On Tuesday, Patsy and I had our appointment with the doctor that will be doing our colonoscopies on Monday and Tuesday, November 25 & 26. After the appointment, we went to the hospital to get registered for the disgusting procedure and then to Wal-Mart to drop off our prescriptions for the tasty solution that starts off the whole process!!!

After that, we went home, picked up the Bus, hooked up the car, and left the bad memories of the first part of the day behind us.  We headed toward Spring, Texas for the Texas Bluebonnet Allegro Club rally.  We had to get to the Southwest side of Houston, Sugar Land, to pick up a pair of new tennis shoes that I called and had an Academy put on hold for me.  They were open until 10:00PM, and we got there at about 8:30PM. 

We successfully picked up the shoes, and then drove into Houston and stopped on a parking lot and tuned the TV’s, so I could watch my favorite CBS show, “Person of Interest”.  After the show, we drove through Houston, and overnighted at the Wal-Mart in Spring.  On Wednesday morning, we drove the next 10 miles to the Rayford Crossing RV Resort for the rally.  While we were checking in, John Perrella, whom with his wife, Becky, traveled with us last January to Quartzsite after hooking up with us in El Paso, met me at the check-in area.  They are not members of this club, but are just staying at this resort, since they were originally from The Woodlands, TX.  Last January, they were on their way to Alaska, where they were planning on workamping for the Summer.  You can read about it on their web site.

In fact, they are parked almost across the street from us (with their SUV parked in front of the coach.  Their coach is a year newer than ours, but a very similar pattern of paint…..


Yesterday, I took a couple of pictures of RV’s with personalized signs in the front window, similar to ours, that Sue Didelot had painted.  At the end of the day, there were three coaches in a row that had the signs, and the Didelots have never been to a meeting of this club!!



You can see other signs that Sue has painted here!

We had camped at Rayford Crossing several times in the past, in fact, it was here that we met the Didelot’s……. at a meeting of a now defunct club.  We hadn’t been back for a long time, and no, it was just the bad luck of meeting Mark Didelot here(!!!!), we just haven’t had any rallies here.  Resort has evolved into a very nice campground.  Here are a few pictures, beginning with the “premium sites” at the ends of the rows that include tables/chairs and BBQ pits……..


The swimming pool is listed as ‘heated’, but with the temperatures close to freezing overnight, and warming to the 50’s in the daytime, there were no takers!  The wooden walkway in the above picture led to a playground with swings, etc.

This rally is a Tiffin brand rally, but there are far more Tiffin Motorhomes in the park than what belongs to the club.  There are two top of the line Zephyrs here, and someone told me that a third left right before we got here.  There a many more Bus’ and Phaetons.

More later……..
