On a recent circle trip around central Texas, we stopped over for a visit at the Escapee’s Alamo Area Co-op Lone Star Corral RV Park near Hondo, about 45 miles west of San Antonio.
This was our first visit to the park and Jimmy was hoping for a game of eight ball. There were three decent billiards tables in the club house … and as with all the Escapee RV Parks we have visited, the facilities were top notch and the people were welcoming and friendly.
Jack, a retired electrical engineer and Liz, a software engineer, have been Escapees for 20 years and fulltime RVers since 1995.
They live in their 40-foot Bluebird Wanderlodge and split their time between winters in Texas and summers to Colorado. One of Liz’s volunteer positions is as editor of the bi-weekly Corral News.
As I mentioned earlier, we were going to stay over a second night so that Jimmy could shoot a little pool … unfortunately, between the extremely loud, unhappy pack of barking rescue dogs housed just outside the RV park … and the frequent loud, long whistles of the nearby freight trains working their way east and west … we didn’t have the energy. We love dogs and we love trains, just not non-stop, all night long.
