Eagles Rest RV Park

Eagles Rest RV Park

I promised the owners of this park, Ken & Donna Williams, that I would definitely put a blog up for them. A shout out so to speak!

I was tired.

Dead tired.

As ya'll that have read my blog of late, you know about the transmission problems I had.

Finally, I found the right shop & they ordered me a new heavy duty transmission cooler.

It got installed Thursday morning, Aug 02, 2012.

Finally, all is good again!

Yay & Yipee!!

So we thank everyone profusely.

17 days on the road, well, not exactly on the road.

17 days from leaving Pa to Arkadelphia, AR, to Marshall, TX was a bit much.

But again, I'm very grateful that all mechanics let me plug in so I could run the a/c for the dogs.

Whew!

So on Thursday, Aug 02-2012, I finally hit the road towards home!

I'm beat.

I'm exhausted.

I stopped by Walmart on the way out of Marshall to get some food & a few supplies so I'd not have to stop once home.

So that deed done, but I did keep the engine running with the a/c on. It had been running awhile, it was 107 outside. Another totally freaking hot day!

I go down 59, but the RV is soooo hot. Not overheating hot, but inside hot due to the outside heat beating upon us. So I pull over where I find a place. Crank on the generator & roof air & decided to just sit a spell. Carolyn of amigoingsomeplace texted me. She was trying to find me a COE park. I was done driving. I just wanted to find an RV park & pull over.

So I drive & drive & drive. But I'm tired. I'm near nodding off. Finally, I find a park! I passed quite a few before I wanted to stop. Go figure. I actually pulled into one park. It was rather large. With several buildings all over the place. I could not figure out which was the office. I had no clue on the cost of this park. I had just previously passed one that was $30 a night. No thanks. I just wanted a place to plug in, run the a/c & sleep.

Finally, I found this park!

Yay!




The owners live on the property in a brick & stick house. They used to be fulltime RVers, but gave it up once they got older & didn't enjoy the traveling anymore. He told me that he still wanted to travel some, so he'd go to cities around Texas & his wife would stay home. Then he quit traveling & they opened up their own RV park.
Very nice people. He even gave me a discount! Yipee!!! And a free appointment book.
So I promised that I'd put a shout out for their park.

The park is located a little north of Livingston, Texas.

Their rates as of the date of 8-02-12 are as stated:
Daily  $25.00
Weekly  $140.00
Monthly  $230.00

My site. Electric, water & sewer!

50amp, 30amp & regular 110 plugs.  

Although not really very functional, I liked the cute little picnic table.

The brick house is their house. The white building is the shower/bathroom building. But it's not in use at the moment, so be ready to use your own shower in your own rig.

I took liberty of taking pics of the flowers. After all, there were some busy bees working. Look at the pollen all over the bee. ;-)


And a nice pond at the rear of the property. He told me I could walk my dogs back there & not have to pick up after them. But it's ingrained into me to pick up after my dogs. I still out of respect, did walk them back there though. Actually, it was so hot that I ended up walking back there where I could find shade in which to walk the dogs.  

~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~

  3. I know what you mean about picking up. Yesterday I forgot to reload the bags and walked Fred. Luckily there are some weeds with really big leaves so I used them to pick up. I sure filled up as soon as I got home. :(P

    Looked like a nice park. Rates aren't to bad either.
