When we planned our 2 month excursion, we did a lot of research to find a downtown location in Austin. We had never visited Austin, but always wanted to based upon its reputation as a hip, laid back, high-tech, college town. We found the Pecan Grove RV Park and booked a stay despite some of the reviews. This is an urban campground, which has only 12 transient sites, since 90% of its occupants are … Continue reading →
It’s been quite a while since we posted anything about pickleball. We had intended to play in Austin during our visit but the rain delayed our arrival and curtailed outdoor play.

Known as “Greenwich Village West” it is the home of an old copper mine, painters, jewelry makers, musicians and lots of cool restaurants. We … Continue reading →
