Full Timing at Last

Well,,,,, we are full timing at last. We put our name on the list almost 2 yrs ago at the same place we have had our barge birthed and a vacancy came up. We got just the spot we had hoped for. This place is great. It's located on Lake Tawakoni in Texas. It's about 40 mins east of Dallas. It is the Cat Fishing Capital of Texas. We moved our Gulf Stream out here and got set up with a small deck, gazebo, and a storage building to handle the…

Chicken Fried Steak

Now I admit I am a texan through and through, and I may be a little predjudist about some things, but this needs to be told. We just got back from our last road trip up to S. Dakota where we did the Mt Rushmore thing along with Custer and Crazy Horse. A few check-offs from our "bucket list". When we got to Hot Springs, S. Dakota it was gettin on about noonish and we had an appetite building. My wife/friend/navigater said we ought to stop and eat lunch at one of the local cafe's. She had a…

Replacing Old Air Bags (No, the suspension type)

  Being the proud owner of "The Texas T" (1990 Southwind), and priding myself in still being mobile enough (at 64) to take care of the repairs and upkeep of our home away from home. I thought I had met my match with the daunting task of replacing the front suspension air bags after the starboard one blew out on our last trip to the Texas coast.

After receiving the replacement kit and the less than detailed instruction sheet, it occured to me that I was expected to insert these two…

All things invisable.

As is the case with so many things in life, once again it is the little things that you can't see changing, that will cause you the most grief.

As mentioned in our status before Thanksgiving, we loaded the Ol Texas T with all the food and supplies that might be needed by the army of a small country and hit the road for the Texas coast taking the road less traveled. We were to…

Hi Jim.....


As I just bought this Fleetwood in February, that shine was put on by the seller, I just used their photo....I might add that plenty of tire black was used too, to cover up the cracks in the sidewalls on the tires.....lol

I'm used to high dollar fuel purchases.....On my big truck, I had twin 150 gallon tanks to fill.....At diesel fuel prices of 15 years ago, it was nothing to burn $30,000 worth of fuel in a year.... I wouldn't want to pay to fill them at today's prices.....lol

Thanks for your comments on my RV, I like it very much too..... It needs lots of TLC and repairs but it is 17 years old, and I expected that from a used vehicle.

Just got back a week ago from a week up on Lake DeGray had a great time stayed up most nights talking to other that come here on a regular basis. If you ever get to go there make your stop at Iron Mt. only about 2 miles from
I-30 and about 30 miles or less from Hot Springs.
Hope you guy are having a good summer!!
Take care,

James I think when this rain stop for a while I will be able to hit the road for 2010 and we can't wait to set up camp some where. Hope you folks will be able to put some miles on your rv and have a good time this summer.
Watch out for the other guy out there you know they are not always looking for you.

Thank you for the comment it has been a work in progress. There were only 4 built that I know of mine is #4 off of the line before Starcraft sold the class A rights to Jayco, so I am told. Have fun, Jim

Hello James, I lived till 2006 in Lancaster,Tx and build several new homes around on the lake.
I retired and moved back to Arkansas in 2006 and where I live you can go to a differance lake each day and not go the the same one twice.
If you like to fish or just look at good country and have some good campground come on up the door is always open.

Need to get ready for 2010 it is not going to rain forever that is I hope.

Welcome James and family! Thanks so much for sharing the photos of your Southwind, I've always liked their layout, except on mine... which I sold, i had to spend all my time living in the engine compartment. It's the one at the top of goodoldrvs.com home page.

I love to fish so I sure like your custom boat carrier. Solves a lot of problems and it seems handy.

Again, welcome and have some fun with us on goodoldrvs.
