I always look for you all (A/S owners, not just VK) on the roads as I make my trips in and around South Texas for work. Haven't seen any polished ones (not like this one) but I keep my hopes up.

And a word to any: used to be that running the back roads south of San Antonio to get to the coast was a pleasent change from Interstate traffic. I'd advise against it any longer as the Eagle Ford oil shale boom has changed the complexion of those roads for the worst: heavy traffic, torn up roads and truck drivers in a hurry (thinking of TX-181, 123, etc south from Austin, San Marcos, etc.)

If it intersects TX-72 (from Cotulla -- actually TX-97 at that point -- on past Cuero to TX-77 in Halletsville [see map]) then take it off your list, please.

Awesome job!

But, even after 10 months, and thousands of hours (not to mention dollars) I'm just going to tell you that you will never be really done. There's always another something else! Great job!

Nice RV park in Rockport

We are staying the month at Coastal Oaks. It is super nice. Big cement pads. Clean and well kept. It's about 3 miles from Rockport beach off Market st. There some questionable ones on the way to it so don't panic if you stay there. Nice pool, hot tub, and club house too.

That was there when I got it. It is a wrap made out of fiberglass. It had some cracks so I used bondo to repair it then just painted silver. It was riveted on with big rivets and would have left big holes so I just went with it.
