I know right where you are! As a kid my dad took my friends and I to Port Isabel surfing many times. Which is why when we decided to winter in RGV I looked at both. I had decided on the KOA as it was on the lee / bay side and thought it might make a better long term - winter place. As it is - I let Don talk me out of letting Bonita sit in the salt air for 3 or 4 months.
That said - while the place is pretty build up - even was years ago - it was and remains quite nice down there. I hope the weather clears for you.
It's funny - the pic you posted says League City at the top - the town I grew up in was sandwiched between there and Waynes tree house.
Ohhhh that was from the google directions... I just zoomed in and took a screen shot.... The rig across from us stay 6 months....
And damn There are stickers.... Gotta try to keep pups out of the grass.... on the street please.....

Not a bad way to spend his 66th!
Sounds like a great way to spend a birthday!
And, Muties, we're still around. Anniversary coming up, so we'll be celebrating this weekend. Getting coach winterized on Monday. Decided I'm too pooped to do it myself and I make enough money to pay a guy named Jeff to do it for me. (Don't worry, he's got a RV repair/maintenance shop and has been doing it for years. Besides, he lives in my hometown and we know the same folks. And, he was recommended.)
Steve and Annie ... ommmmmms coming your way. Hope Tom is on the mend. And hope you are feeling lots better, Annie.
I am SO ready to say "goodbye" to the 8-5 and "hello" to the rainbow - full time. Not much longer.
Signing off. Will be on the forum sporadically for a while. The company magazine I'm responsible for is demanding all my attention and energy.
Peace, love and pass the Merlot ....

Thanks Possum - we're not quite there yet but soon. Right now there is still work and Annie has barf syndrome. Hopefully nothing but nerves and stress - some +++ with dad and move and some --- as we near freedom. It's really a pretty emotional time. It's not like we are off on vacation lol. We have done what others before us have done - tossed away a lifelong way of and outlook on living for a new one. Head spinning is probably normal I imagine.
What! You let Annie get sick. I'm going to sick Earlene on you!

The good news is that there is no evidence that Gunny's problems are neurological. We did order up a DNA test to possibly rule out Degenerative Myelopathy and will get those results in a couple weeks.
After consultation with orthopedics it appears we are dealing with the hip dysplasia we know about and perhaps some arthritic changes through out the hips. He could also be a tad more lame because of a couple recent falls.
The end result is that we will go to 100 mg of derremaxx for the next 5 days then down to 75 mg. We will also increase the Tramadol dose from 100 mg to 150 mg 3 times a day. We will also continue with the glucosamine regiment. Finally we will add 1000 mg of Omega 3 to his diet. The Omega 3 is known by most to be good for skin conditions but also has anti-inflammatory properties.
Thanks for letting me vent/worry out loud too.
Don, all the best wishes and prayers for Gunny. Consider Krill Oil 1000 mg. Better than omega 3. (In my opinion - works for me)
