We made it to McAllen yesterday around 4 p.m. The weather here is great, no wind and the sun is shining. An expected 80 degrees today.
Yesterday we took back roads from Galveston to McAllen. It was a great trip and we passed lots of beautiful sights. Too bad we are always in a hurry. TomTom really let us down on several occasions yesterday. All of a sudden he had a brain fart and we were told to turn left at the next road. We were still miles from our next turn. He would recalculate only after we reprogramed him. Don't know if it is a TomTom thing or just us.
We arrived at the Circle T Rv Park off of Inspiration and the Hwy 83. We had come here as far back as 10 years ago. We really liked it. We haven't been here for two years and there has been a change in management. No credit cards, only checks and cash. This is a snowbird park. Wierd isn't it! On top of that, there is no wifi. They have two computers in the game room and if you want wifi you have to contract it by paying per day, week or month. 30 bucks a month. That's a real bummer. I would pack up and go but we are only here for two nights and we will be crossing back and forth to Reynosa getting paperwork and figuring out what we need to do to import the Funfinder.
I will have to say that our Canadian neighbors are great as usual. They came out to greet us as we pulled in. The rest are a bunch of old sourpusses.

  1. Re TomTom, We have been with Garmin for many years, now on our second model, and it doesn't have accurate info for the Rio Grande Valley area. I know they have rebuilt the freeway there over the last decade, but we found several street addresses are way off. Also some of their stores are not where they say they are. It could be that Texas map data collectors are just not with it. Haven't run into that problem anywhere else, in fact, some places the Garmin shows roads existing that are still under construction.
