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.

Palacios, TX

We left Del Rio Tuesday morning around 8:30 heading to Palacios, TX where we are staying at Serendipity Bay Resort. It's been several years since I've been to Palacios. Serendipity Bay Resort is a nice little RV park overlooking the bay and marina. Barb and I first found this place in 2007 and then we spend a couple of winters here in 2009 and 2009/2010. Nancy and I will be here until February 13th then we're heading to Galveston, TX for a week.

When we first came here we had our StarBand satellite internet system that worked great at the time. The winter of 2009/2010 we had changed to Verizon Wireless for internet. After Barb and I stopped traveling full-time we discontinued our Verizon account. When Nancy and I started our trip I looked for RV parks to stay at that had Wi-Fi. This time coming back to Palacios the Wi-Fi system here at the park didn't work very well so I went to Verizon Wireless in Victoria and purchased a new Jetpack 4G LTE 6022L MiFi system that works great. Now no more having to stay only at RV parks that have a Wi-Fi system.

New Furnace

We've been having problems with our furnace ever since we started this trip. Some times it work work all day and night but many times it would just blow cold air. So after getting into Del Rio I called a mobile RV technician to check it out. He thought it was the circuit board in the furnace that was starting to go bad but he would have to pull it out and order parts for it. Since the furnace was 18 years old I went ahead and told him to order and install a new furnace. Last night he installed the new furnace and replaced the switch on the water heater so it would heat on AC. The furnace and the water heater now works great. Price to install the new furnace, replace the water heater switch and to replace a bad Kool-O-Matic exhaust fan motor that I will install was $1525.43.

Ciudad Acuña, Mexico

Nancy and I walked to Ciudad Acuña, Mexico yesterday. It was a good mile across the International Bridge, probably a good mile walking around town not buying anything and the a mile back across the bridge. I've walked across here a few times before but I was a lot younger then. We're having problems with the furnace in the motorhome so I'm having a new one installed while here in Del Rio. The furnace is 18 years old so it's due to start going bad.
