We are getting closer to South Texas!

We drove on South from McKinney, TX about 200 miles and stopped at Motor Homes of Texas in Nacogdoches. We had just one more thing for them to check and fix before we went on to Mission, TX. While there, we installed a PressurePro System on another customers Motorhome. That’s a couple of systems the guys at MOT have helped us sell.  Thanks a lot guys....we appreciate it very much. I always put out my PressurePro sign and it attracts attention.

Yesterday, we moved from MOT across and down the road to FOT, the Foretravel Factory Campground.  It is a neat place and open to all Foretravel owners. FREE.....and they even have FREE washers and dryers!

I got on the Foretravel Forum and announced that we would have a HAPPY HOUR at the Camp Foretravel with Free “Wine and Cheese” courtesy of PressurePro.   Then I  put out our signs, like I always do, when we got parked.  Plus, we knew our friends, Bob and Joan Weinberg, from Retama were here at the campground.  Ms Pat walked around and told everyone about the PressurePro sponsored Free Wine at Happy Hour and we had quite a turnout.

Below is Ms Pat standing in front of our Rig in Camp Foretravel. Since we hadn’t done laundry for a while, she spent the afternoon right next door in the laundry room.  There were 4 nice big full size washers and dryers and she had them all buzzing. It didn’t take her long to get all our clothes washed and dried.

Did you notice just above Ms Pat’s head who was watching out the window?

Yep, it's Ms Megabyte2 keeping a watchful eye on everything. She says “Who put this stupid sign up here so I can’t see out”?  She is loving “her” new home more and more every day.

I know a lot of you wanted to see the shades we had installed, so here are a few pictures.

This is BEFORE (above) we installed the Solar Shade’s…….You can see there is quite a glare from the sun and the heat in the area gets very intense.

Here it is (above) with the Solar Shade installed and lowered. It cuts down on the glare and also keeps the heat down, plus we can see out but no one can see in.   See the new windshield wiper shades they gave us? Now below is the night “privacy” shade.

Lowered half way…

All the way down. Note...there are actually 3 shades. That’s because it's not straight across our windshield. Some they can do with 1 shade all the way across, some take 2, one for each side, but ours took 3. Not the way I expected or wanted, but that’s what it had to be....on both the Solar day shades and the Night privacy shades.  Overall, we are very happy with them and will enjoy them more and more as we get used to them.
We had a very enjoyable Saturday afternoon watching some Football, helping Ms Pat with the Laundry and a great Happy Hour with our "new" Foretravel Owner friends in this neat free campground.  I was most happy to see the BIG RED Cornhusker’s beat Missouri……..Way to go Huskers!!!!

As I was putting together this blog this morning, a car drove up to our Motorhome in the darkness. I heard a loud “PLOP”!   I jumped up and found a Sunday Newspaper laying at the front door…  WOW!!  Thank you FORETRAVEL!  We are proud to be a part of you!!

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!

Thanks for stopping by and may the Good Lord take a likin' to ya. Travel safe.

Sure can't beat a free campground. And a free "wine and cheese" happy hour for your guests, pretty neat! Looks like Megabyte2 is enjoying her new "ride".

Nice shades...& no, I didn't mean the sunglasses:))

Great looking shades, Mike, the guys did a good job.

Free wine and cheese will draw a crowd of RV'ers every time!

Only thing better than free wine and cheese is a free steak along with the free wine and cheese. Maybe we'll have to get a Foretravel and follow you around! No new rig in our future, but we have grand plans to have our old Rosie redecorated soon.

Thanks for the tour of where you go and what you do!

I just love those shades!

Judy and Emma said...

Thanks for the pics of the shades. I was having trouble picturing them in my mind. I assume you have them for the side windows as well?? :)

Great idea on the free wine. Sounds like a win win on a number of fronts: can't miss on the pressure pro TPMS; great campground (we stayed there last fall for a couple of nights), and a free paper!

Great looking MCD shades!

You must be using your optional "L" bracket to support your Pressure Pro Monitor on the dashboard?
