Rich and I retired in 2014. We never realized what a wonderful life lay before us in retirement. It was scary but exciting. You worry about money, repairs on the Motor Home and have to learn to live on one payday a month. We have workamped in an Amusement Park, and Gate Guarded in the oil fields and pipeline. We landed in Texas in the Rio Grande Valley. It is such a wonderful place to live. Its a life that is so hard to explain to people up north without everyone experiencing it. The area, the people, the life the culture…..This is my attempt to try to explain what a wonderful place the Rio Grande Valley is. So come along and follow me with my stories and Explanations of this wonderful area full of sun, beaches, history, and wonderful people…..
