Red face Going full-time in Texas

Hey y'all!!
I decided I did not need a big ole house anymore! I gave my son and daughter in law my house, got rid of almost everything and moved into an apartment. I hated it!! My first time to ever live in an apartment.

So I bought an RV last weekend. Forest River Salem 27RKSS, and I am going to live in it full-time. I am so excited about it.

I think it is going to be just the perfect size for me.So cheers to sitting outside under the awning enjoying the Texas heat!

Very exciting! Have you found a place in Texas to stay at yet?

Congratulations! What made you pick Texas? Are you going to travel the state or settle in one place? You've got a wide range of climates to choose from (all in the Texas heat)

I am thinking in the Huntsville area. My son and daughter in law actually live in Diboll. I am hoping to go back to work with the prison system there too. Classy RV is who I have been talking to about a space.

You might want to check with people in the area before you settle in. I know nothing about that rv park, but the description of being "Minutes away from the Trinity River" concerns me. That river floods frequently in some spots.
Huntsville is a beautiful area. Lots of trees and, of course, Texas heat in the summer.
Welcome, in advance, to Texas.

Because that is where I have been for the last 28 years. My son and daughter in law are there with my grandson. Also, I am not close to retirement age and still have to work. lol

Yes, it is definitely hot in Texas!!!

Welcome, in advance, to Texas.
Also, yes, it is near the river but for enough away to not flood that far out and on higher ground. Thank you for thinking about that though.

Thank you for welcoming me back to Texas!! I am excited and ready to start this chapter of my life for sure.

Welcome from just across the way (just north of Houston up the Eastex Freeway). Huntsville is nice. I don't know about Classy RV though. But the area around there is great. And maybe it's far enough away that Houston won't gobble it up!

Again, welcome, and hope to see you down the road.
