Spring Creek Park
Spring Creek Park, a Harris County, Precinct 4 park is a wonderful, well-maintained park in the Northwest Houston, TX area, and it has a bonus for RVer's! They have 8 full-hookups, FREE camping sites with 50 amp electric, water & sewer. You can only stay 7 days in a 30 day period. It's great for snowbirds passing through on their way to South Texas for the winter, someone who will just be in town for a short time or someone attending one of Tomball's many awesome events. The only downfall, which isn't really one for us, is they lock the gates to the park at 10 pm and you can't get in or out. If you have kids they have a great playground. They also allow tent camping and have showers and bathrooms. Reservations must be made in advance by going to their website: Spring Creek Park.
We’ve lived in our RV full-time going on the tenth year. We’ve entertained family & friends and with any household furniture, our RV furniture was definitely showing a lot of wear. We had replaced our two European recliners with ottomans with a theater room recliner and even though we paid over $1,000 for it, it was also showing wear and we just weren’t happy with it anymore. Plus I wanted a second chair. The only reason we didn’t like the original recliners was the Ottomans always seemed to be in the way.
We’ve lived in our RV 10 years this coming January. We have traveled to many places and still have a lot to visit. If you’d ask me though what my favorite place is I’d probably have to say Custer State Park. What do I like about it? The Buffalo! I think they are one of the most awesome creatures God has created. I’m a person who is constantly multitasking like being on my phone or reading while watching TV. However, I could sit and watch the Buffalo for hours. You might say there are other places to see Buffalo and yes there are, however, there’s something about the natural setting in Custer State Park. What I also like is if you stop at the visitors center and ask where the buffalo are, they normally can tell you approximately where to find them. I’ve been to several parks that have them and have never seen them or gotten any assistance from anyone.

Jim and I have lived in our RV full-time since 2009. These are a few items I highly recommend.
62 or older? Save with the NPS Senior Pass!
Many times, someone living in an RV full time has gone through the process of getting rid of many of the items they had accumulated during their lifetime. In an RV they don't have a lot of storage and they don't have a lot of storage and they don't have a lot of room for knick-knacks. For that reason, unless you know they have a specific need, I would most often suggest you get them a consumable item. Some examples
How do you learn about your surroundings when you travel? I do a couple things. If I see a building or site without a sign, I will pull up my google maps, zoom in and see if it shows me what the place is. We’ve identified solar sites, airplane boneyards, and many other places this way. You can then of course research the site you’ve identified further.

On Thursday May 7, 2015 we were southbound to Houston on I-45 about a mile north of the 1488 exit (between Conroe and The Woodlands). We were in the RV, towing our Chevy Colorado truck. I was in the back sleeping, for those of you who know me that is probably no surprise. I woke up and could tell Jim was braking. By the time I got to the front of the motorhome he had pulled off the road and said he thought there was something wrong with a tire. It must have been a blowout by the looks of it although the tires are only a year old. Plus we have tire monitors and they showed nothing wrong as they would in this case. Jim wanted to unhook the truck and try to change it. I said no way, on the side of the road with all the traffic speeding by. I had heard about too many people injured or even killed. He called our roadside service company Coach Net. Since we didn't know if the tire could be changed or the truck would need to be towed they sent a tow truck driver. He was able to change the tire and we were back on the road in less than and hour. Tire is replaced and we are ready to hit the road again on Thursday!
