Kenny and Nancy call Oconto, Wisconsin home during the summer boating season where together they enjoy recreational boating on the Oconto River and the Bay of Green Bay. When boating season is over they become snowbirds and head south for the winter in their Monaco Windsor luxury motor coach named OWFISH.

Kenny lived and traveled in OWFISH with his late wife Barbara from 2002 until she had a disabling stroke in 2011 and passed away the following year. From then the OWFISH set, except for a short trip in 2013, until Kenny started traveling again with his new wife Nancy in 2014.

Betty's RV Park

After 7 years on the road, Betty's RV Park in Abbeville, LA hands down is one of the best little RV parks that we have stayed at. Betty's RV Park is not a fancy RV resort, there are only 17 sites with hookups at surround her house on a large city lot, they are tight getting into, and the roads are gravel. She has Wi-Fi for those who need to get on the Internet but the signal is weak and you may need to bring your laptop into the pavilion to use it.

But what makes up for it all is Betty herself. She wants to make sure that she is there when you arrive to give you a big welcome. Happy hour is everyday at 4:30 in the afternoon and can last for 2 to 3 hours. You have to bring your own though. You might bring some snacks to share with everyone else too. She arranges tours in the area to places that you would never be able to find on your own. And we have group pot lucks all the time. We are having more fun, met more friends and were treated better than any RV Park we have stayed at before. One thing though, don't bring the kids and please, leave the politics back at your RV.

Betty's RV Park is located at 2118 South State Street in Abbeville, Louisiana. Her phone number is (337) 893-7057. Make sure you call before coming in because she stays full all the time.

Abbeville, LA

After calling Betty's RV Park a little after 2:00 this afternoon to make sure that we were still on for arriving there tomorrow, Betty said she had a space open today. So, within an hour we were on the last leg of this trip to Abbeville, LA. We arrived in time to basically get set up before happy hour. We will be here until around April 14th, then start heading north, through Oklahoma, for our summer destination at the Oconto Yacht Club in Oconto, WI.

New Iberia, LA

We got on the road a little after 10:00 this morning then waited in line for over an hour for the ferry crossing between Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula before we finely got off the island. We had side winds all the way. We have stopped at KOC Kampground in New Iberia, LA for 3 nights before heading 21 miles east to Abbeville, LA where we will spend a month a Betty's RV Park.

After we got settled in, we went to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in the area. R&M's Boiling Point for boiled crayfish. Barb just loves them. We had 12 pounds between the 2 of us. During dinner, Barb said "I could do a winter in Louisiana."

Getting ready to travel

We'll be leaving Palacios, TX next Thursday, Mar 11th, heading to Abbeville, LA for a month before heading north for the summer. We'll be staying at Betty's RV Park.

We also got word yesterday that we will be able to park our motorhome for the summer season at the Oconto Yacht Club in Oconto, WI. This will be the first time the club has ever done this so this year will be a temporary trial. Our cost for the whole season, including electric and water hookups, is $700. There is a pumpout near by for our black tank. If everything works out ok, they will consider open it up for 3 member owned RVs. We also have a boat slip there for the Shangri-La costing us $625 for the season.
