My daughter has been having some medical issues and we felt like the best place for us was close to her. We spent most of the day trying to find a place to park, which wasn’t very easy since DFW area doesn’t have many RV parks close in. We finally found a place in Collin county that had one space left, so we packed it up and headed North.
Our first boondocking experience was here at Halletsville Walmart. Manager said it was ok, just park at the end of lot. This was a very small Walmart, one of the smallest we had seen so the parking lot was small as well. By nightfall we had three 18 wheelers, plus 3 rv’s. We liked this town, ate at a local bakery/cafe, and stocked up at Walmart.
Arrived at our destination park on January 7. It was not what we anticipated but we were determined to make it work. We paid, backed in, and started to set up and found out the electrical wasn’t working. The owner came down and looked at it and insisted that it was all working when the last person left. After a few frustrating hours we demanded our money back and left. It was already after 4pm with only about an hour before dark. We headed over to the Home Depot across the street, asked to speak with the manager and got his permission to spend the night or two in their parking lot.
Finally secured a good camping area for a week or two.
Something we weren’t used to in Port Aransas was wrapping our water hose to keep from freezing. Oh well, it is winter time.
