Google Earth it and you'll see what used to be a good TEX. ST. Park for RV'g. Once it went to birding only, there was no driving allowed. That's nice unless you used to go there as a Boy Scout and used the lake for boating. All gone now.
Mission, TX, is where my mom presently lives in a over 55 residential community just up the road from Gooding RV Center. The whole area is blowing up quick and I want to leave after over 65 years down here. Three years USAF accounts for the other time. I discharged out of Laredo AFB, so must count that as Valley Time.
You will no doubt get to witness illegal alien and drug chases in that area. It happens all the time so keep that in mind and watch your rear view as well as all around when driving.
How well do you like helicopters?
