So when RVing… location is key, where you park the RV and decides to stay long can be a challenge. Especially in a busy city like Austin Texas.
But we found a gem… right in the central area. Just 7min to downtown Austin, 2 min to Walmart, gas station, mall areas, right next to Burlington coat factory… and 10min to the airport this Rv location is just the right place to park our home and enjoy the holiday season. South of Austin on I35 is Austin lone star rv resort. Secured and so beautiful with the leaves falling, we are loving it all.
Now let’s talk about Austin as a city… this city is super busy with so much to do and get into. With unpredictable weather forecast. Monday is 80 degrees and Tuesday it’s 40 degrees, so all I can say make every moment count. Kids and I have yet to venture out and explore.
With kids applying for college and studying for SAT we spent our first few weeks inside cooped up in the rv. But with all done we plan to start our adventures of Austin this holiday season.
Now one thing that seem to really come to live everyday when we drove out was the homeless people on the streets seem to be more obvious than I expected. Could be our location also. So this season as we always do in the Manns clan we are giving away blankets with a gift card for any homeless person we drive pass on the street.
We have wrapped red warm blankets with a bow and put in the back of our truck and we just hand them out Yaa we drive by. They show so much gratitude when our kids hand them the blankets it warms our hearts. So glad we can do that in our little way to help.
With Austin weather so beautiful when the sun is out we are looking forward to many memories and also making new LLF’s (life long friends) while here.
One thing that I must say is Gas prices here in Austin keeps going down when we arrived it was $2.20 now it’s $1.88… that’s what we love.. and the food… the taco trucks are amazing. Love them all
And thanks to a friend we made while touring UT we got to go and watch a football game. It was kids and I first time and totally enjoyed just watching people passionately scream for their team. It was longhorn vs Iowa state.
We have 11 more states to explore to complete our 50 states Rving tour.
Happy holidays to everyone and will share more on our adventures.
