I had an easy drive this morning from the escapees RV Park in Hondo Texas to Corpus Christi State Park near Corpus Christi, I think it was only 120 miles or something like that. I only signed up for two days but they told me I could re-up if I wanted to because there not crowded at all. I'm staying at a pull-through site that has water and electric that cost $20 a night.
I really like the park so far it's really pretty and seems like there's a lot of things to do here, but I just got here and haven't driven around and looked at anything yet. There's a fishing pier right cross the street from my campsite which I'm planning on using first chance I get. One of the benefits of staying at a Texas state Park is that you can fish without a fishing license, and it doesn't matter if you're a resident or from out-of-state. But they do have one weird rule and I call it the wet foot dry foot rule. The state Park that you're staying in owns the land but it doesn't own the water, so you're allowed to fish from the bank or from a pier but you can't fish while standing in the water or being in the water in any kind of a boat. If you want to do that you have to have a Texas state fishing license.
As soon as I got out of my truck to go into the state Park office to sign up for a campsite I suddenly remembered what humidity was, and it hit me as soon as I opened the truck door. Before I had walked 50 feet to the office I was already sweating. It's been a long time since I sweated enough to make my shirt damp and to have my clothes sticking to me and I suddenly remembered how much I disliked it. I know it will take some getting used to. I also know it will get worse the closer I get to the coast. But if I'm going to spend the winter in southern Texas I'm going to have to man up and sweat like a hog just like everyone else.
