When we were at the Gypsy Gathering in Yuma early in March, one of the seminar leaders said that it is a good thing to know just how tall your rig is. Not just what a manufacturer said or a good guess, but really know. Well, I can tell you that I KNOW Liberty, air conditioners and all, is less than 13′ 4″. And just how do I know that? On our way from San Antonio to Aransas Pass yesterday, Gypsy (our GPS) got confused and had us turn off of a new road that she wasn’t familiar with. So to get back on it, we made a turn onto a side road with not one but two bridges going over. That’s right, the clearance was 13′ 4″! I wonder, do angels’ wings get scuffed when they cover buses going under bridges? Just a thought!
We’re staying in the Portobelo Village RV park in Aransas Pass, TX, just a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico. LeRoy’s cousins, Rodney and Georgia Sayers, have a home just up the drive from us here in the park. Georgia made dinner for us last night and we had a great time visiting.
When we parked, the first thing that happened was that the shore cord (electricity) got pulled apart and we had to go to a store to buy parts. After a lot of frustration, we decided to wait until morning and find a real RV parts store. It was a new experience sleeping with the windows open in Liberty with above 75% humidity! The temperature was cool enough but goodness, it was sticky! LeRoy got the new parts put together before lunch and we are now sitting in air conditioned comfort.
We plan to stay here for about a week, so will attend church with Rodney and Georgia on Easter Sunday.
