Now Cruising In Becky's Land Yacht
"Becky's land Yacht is a 30ft 1986 Mallard class "A" Recreational Vehicle with a chevy 454 and just 25,000 miles.
Stayed the night at an RV park in Lake City Florida. Took showers and did laundry. We did not have any plans past this date. We will be playing it by ear and making more plans as we go.
Drove all day in the rain and spent the night at the Loves Truckstop in Cottondale Florida.
We needed to empty our holding tanks so we drove about 11 miles to the Falling Waters State Park near the the town of Chipley Florida. It was such a nice place we stayed the night. After all we are not on a schedule. We also took showers and got cleaned up.
Drove most of the day and stopped at a Loves Truckstop near Diberville Mississippi.
We drove most of the day and managed to stop at two AT&T stores to get the high speed internet connection equipment that would give us Internet access in the RV via WiFi. We stopped for the night at a Loves Truckstop in Duson Louisiana to rest and play with our new Internet access. The following morning we refueled and got on our way again.

We stayed at Boomtown RV Park near Vidor Texas. Was a really nice place. We stayed there 2 nights, mainly because it was so windy. The RV does not do well in strong winds. We also showered and did laundry. We also spent some time in there TV room and saw some news about protesters trying to take over our nations capital buildings.
Stopped and spent the night at the Loves Truckstop in Sinton Texas. Got up the next morning had some coffee and breakfast and got on the road again.
01-09-2021 through 01-15-2021
Stopped at the Split Rail RV Park in Mission Texas. We spent some time visiting with Jim and Nedra Fuhr. They took us out to eat at a mexican family restaraunt then down to see the famous Border WALL between Mexico and the US. The next day I built an antenna for the RV.
The next day they came and we went out to a fancy Mexican restaraunt where we had some of the best food we have ever eaten. Thursday we rested and Friday we went to see the SpaceX site and their rocket, then to see the beach at the west side of the Gulf of Mexico. We saw a large shrimp boat that had missed the enterance to the harbor and ran aground on the beach. After that we drove to Podra Island so we could say we were there and to stop and eat at a fancy sea food restaraunt. Again it was a grand meal. The next day we took off for the Falcon State Park about 90 miles to the west of Mission Texas.
01-16-2021 until 01-24-2021
We are at the Falcon State Park to hang out for a while. It costs us about $80 a week to stay here and it is warm here. It is a park with wild pigs, birds and rattlesnakes. So far we have seen the pigs, the birds, but not the rattlesnakes. The park is pretty empty, we suspect because of Covid-19. This place is basically sand and scrub brush next to a resivour with the Mexican border running through the middle of it.
01-25-2021 until 02-02-2021
We went back to the Splitrail Park in Mission Texas. It is the most expensive place we have stayed so far, but it has great bathrooms, showers and an awsom TV room. After a week at the RV park it was time to take off. We have decided to start heading back east as we want to be in Tennessee to see our fiends the Carlson's and see the house they have bought to spend winters in. Where it is a bit warmer than Minnesota's Iron Range in the winter months.
The first stop would be a truck maintenance shop to get the power steering looked at and to get the tires checked. The power steering problem was just a loose drive belt and the tires just needed to have the air preasure set to the proper levels. The price to fix these problems was $175.00 and worth it to get the service done correctly and I learned some more stuff at the same time.
