26 miles up the Padre Island beach

Had a great day way up the beach from South Padre, got stuck at the Port mansfield cut, dug out and let some more air out of the tires for more traction, we were pretty much on our own up there. Ran out of Beer and ice...Bummer. (How do you like my flagpole?? Way up there!)
The mast is a sunken Shrimper, according to the locals.

Good pics Ozz. That is quite a flag pole! I wonder what the shrimper Capt. was thinking, coming in that far. Those boats are only 50' or so keel to top of mast. Maybe those little shrimps scuttled it and escaped (watch the movie"Shark Tales" to understand shrimp)!

We were on the island Sunday. Noticed the KOA was sort of empty. Was wondering if you were still out there. I've been up the island to the end of the highway a couple times, but you're braver than I am. I wanted to go up to the cut and fish, but these dang diesels are so front end heavy. We went to Port Isabel this evening for shrimp to take home. Will be pulling out of Port Mansfield probably Friday for a couple days in Rockport, then on to East TX and to Toledo Bend Reservoir on April 12th. Have fun.

Good to see you back, Jim and Sue. We have one of those flags. Our is a fish. Phred the Phish. He's flying as we speak. However, at the Goshen rally, Helen and Bill's (Adelmoll) eagle ate our fish.

By the way, rumor has it you and Sue are headed to KC to sell the house and go fulltime. Any truth to that?

That's the plan, Stan.
It may be the most dawnting task I have ever tried, but I can't see paying $800.00 or so just to have a vacant home, we have been on the road for around 6 month's, I haven't even thought about the stick home.
(OK, I missed my Plasma cutter, welder, stock rack, and some other guy stuff a little, but I'm adapting to the Steve and Vicky way of life.)
