No problems here - it was a swing and a miss for Ike in Austin.

A large jet of hot, low humidity air came shooting over Austin from the north yesterday and that helped to push the hurricane away as well as prevent any feeder bands from developing over the area. Too bad really because we needed the rain.

Congratulations and welcome to the forum!!
I have never been to Hollywood but I'll bet it's a little different than Austin. If you really like rural life, I've got a beautiful 54 acre horse farm for sale in the rolling bluegrass of SouthCentral Kentucky and I'll bet it's cheaper than Austin. We want to see pictures of the new Stream. Best of luck!!

quarantine period

For planning purposes, please be advised that there's a mandatory Texas quarantine period for Kalifornicians moving into Texas. It's usually about 90 days, but being from Hollywood adds a month to that. You can test out of it depending on attitude, how fast you wean off of frapaccino lattes, and a wardrobe replacement. Actually, since you're talking Austin you'll be able to keep the frapaccino lattes.

Welcome

Nice to see that you are choosing Austin. Here in Texas we like to keep all of the weirdness in one place.

Another vote for Austin

Austin is a great oasis in Texas. Completely different politically and much more of a close-knit community than Houston or Dallas (lived in Houston for over 30 years). If you're a little weird yourself, or don't mind it in others, you'll love Austin.

It's also an oasis when it comes to home prices. We've shopped for homes close in, and I think they compare pretty well to west coast prices. We actually live at Canyon Lake, about midway between Austin and San Antonio, and prices are much more reasonable here--even if you're on the lake itself. And you can visit Austin one weekend and San Antonio the next.

Coming from Hollywood you'll feel at home in the Austin traffic scene. The Lone Star RV park, which was mentioned earlier, is a good location. Traveling down IH-35 from south Austin to the Round Rock area is usually a good hours drive during peak traffic periods, but coming from Hollywood you will fit right in.

If you decide to look into joining a WBCCI unit I would highly recommend the Texas Hill Country Unit that is in the Austin area.

Welcome to Texas.

Welcome to Texas! I think you'll are making the right decision. We lived in Southern California in the 70's (for 5 years). Near Seal Beach/Los Alamitos area of Orange County. Couldn't wait to get back to Texas. Now we are 30 miles west of Austin and 15 miles east of Marble Falls in Spicewood and love it.
I suggest Riverview RV Park in Marble Falls which is on Lake Marble Falls (the other constant level lake west of Austin). It is located at 200 Old River Rd in Marble Falls (Tel: 830-693-3910).
Another nice park is Sunset Point at 2322 Wirtz Dam Road just west of Marble Falls (Tel:830-798-8199).
When you get settled and if your interested in joining a WBCCI unit I suggest our unit the Highland Lakes Unit ( Texas Highland Lakes Unit ).
Best of Luck

Welcome to the forums,

There is quite a contingent of Austin Airstreamers here, and they will hopefully point you in the right direction.

Steve
