Escaping the Sandstorm! Ditching the Beach for Corpus Christi & Washing the RV – Full Time RV Living



Our stay on the beach was great…until it wasn’t. High winds and dry sand combined to create an uninhabitable sandstorm! Once we reached our next spot we washed EVERYTHING! We felt tons of relief once we had A/C and a clean RV. Check out the blog post for Jenni’s chicken quesadilla recipe!: https://www.fateunbound.com/escaping-the-sandstorm/

We have had enough sand for one lifetime! The wind was kicking up so much sand that it was coming right in through our windows so we had to keep them closed, but the day was so hot that we were cooking inside our RV! The beach had basically become uninhabitable so we had to get out! We decided to leave our site earlier than planned to head to our next destination in Corpus Christi, Texas. The RV was absolutely filthy inside and out with salt and sand so once we reached the RV Park in Corpus Christi we did a full RV cleanup! I got to test out my new telescoping RV washing brush (which turns out was broken…), and afterwards Jenni cooked another delicious dinner for us!

    you can cneck in late just let them know even if you are late you can still pay the site and they can't give it to someone else. We checked into a site at about 10pm our check in time was 3pm as long as they know you are comming and you still pay the site they don't care as long as you don't make noise

    David, note: Shooting a clip while driving with windows closed affects the quality of your audio. You guys sound like you're in a phone booth. I'm dating myself by talking about a phone booth. You probably never had to use a phone booth in your life, Anyway, i thought you'd like to know. Happy trails to you both.

    Do you all worry about weather extremes? We would love to vacation in Texas and the southeast, but the threat of brutal weather isn't worth the risk for us.

    You both are one of my favorite full time rvers. Could you tell me if you experience any sway motion on your trailer? I've been looking at the Springdales and I'm really loving the layouts and affordability of them. Did you guys buy new or used? What brand is your hitch? Thank you.

    I lived near CC most of my life. Never camped there because I hate that sand blowing, it gets into every crevice there is on a body! HA Hope you enjoyed Texas though.

    If I were to stay anywhere free in corpus it would be padre island national seashore which has sites on the 'bay side', which still have a lot of sand at Bird Island Basin (not paying for a campsite), but the gulf side has sites up on the bluff in some sand dunes off the beach itself.

    Watching you guys on the beach after spending 5-nights in the NC mountains in 5-inches of snow in our rig, two weeks ago. Only one small dog to pull up on the bed for more heat!

    Don't forget to wash your undercarriage!! The frame, bolts, and jack all need a good cleaning. I always spray down the exposed metal parts, electrical connections, and seams with WD40 to keep corrosion and rust away. After that experience, you guys will find rust in places you never expected!!! Love you videos!!!! Great job!!! Watching you guys from North Carolina. Be safe!!

    PARADISE AT THE BEACH in oceanside, california is awesome! you are across the street from the beach at an rv park. you can enjoy the beach daily (several times a day) without being directly on the beach and dealing with those cons. i stayed there 2 nights and 3 days, went to the beach several times a day, had full hookups (water, electric, sewer, internet, and cable). VERY nice place, close by stores also. i plan on going back. the cost for the 2 nights (i believe it was on a weekday and weekend) was $152

    Baby Powder helps release sand off your body and your sheets. I lived on the beach for two years in an RV right at the edge of the water in an Rv Park in Gilchrist , Texas . We had hook ups so I could keep the windows and doors closed and A/C on ,otherwise it would not have been fun . We love it because we were right at Rollover Pass and we fish. Before we moved there in the Rv we did some tent camping on the beach so I truly understand the Gulf spray soaking everything and a miserable night being damp and full of sand . YES , everything is bigger in Texas and the mosquitoes are Texas sized that's for sure . We were always happy for a south wind ,that meant no mosquitoes, North wind brought them out of the marshes so thick they looked like a black tornado chasing you .Still love that Salt Life ! Now we live at the lake ( no sand ) and go to the beach in the Fall for Flounder season. Enjoy your travels !

    Hi friends. I came across a video I wanted to share with you. I have never seen air conditioning removed from Rvs in this fashion. It's titled The Definitive 11 Foot 8 Bridge Crash Compilation by Willem Hebbe. Can you imagine driving your beautiful rv down the road one minute. Then the next you have a giant piece of garbage with giant holes in the ceiling. It was crazy. Hope you enjoy. The blowing sand sucks. Thanks for the warning. You saved me again. Peace friends.

    Don't feel bad. I have had three car wash brushes like that and the hose feature is the first to fail…usually during its first use. They should be called first first brushes. Thanks for the video!

    Padre Island National Seashore is $10 entrance fee and you can boondock beach camp for 14 days but you will have to deal with sand, lol. The HEB and Walmart at 358 & Waldron are good to boondock overnight. There are all sorts of roadside spots between Corpus & SA to overnight as well. If ya'll ever get to Kerrville (my town) check out Kerrville-Schreiner park for $22/night camping plus water activities and trails. Also – on Interstate 10, there is a free dump station at the exit 514 just east of Kerrville.
