I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas.
We spent the day driving 385 miles to the Rio Grand Valley. This is our fifth year going to the Valley. We started after we finished our plus classes. The first year we spent a couple of weeks in Donna Texas at Bit of Heaven. The second, third and fourth year we were at J-Five, we enjoy the people, the activities and the park is very nice, it is smaller than most of the parks and we like that. The first couple of years at J-Five we stayed a month but last year we stayed three because we learned another level of square dancing. This year we will also be at J-Five, might be a month, maybe two.
|Trip to the Rio Grand Valley|
On the way to the Rio Grand Valley we stopped a couple of time to stretch our legs, get gas and to have lunch. This is our fourth year to travel on Christmas day, the traffic is very light and we easily get through Austin and San Antonio. I stayed awake the first half of the trip but the closer we got to The Valley I couldn't keep my eyes open. We didn't want to disturb anyone's Christmas holiday in the park so we stayed the night in the Lowe's parking lot. For quick overnight stays we prefer Lowe's or Home Depot over Walmart, there is way less traffic and they are much quieter, of course you can't buy a rotisserie chicken. The drive was all four lane highways and interstates.
Merry Christmas to everyone.
