No Bingo Parlors ?
HA! No way man. Pure debauchery.
Ha ha! Probably make Baltimore, Maryand look tame. Designated Driver. Whew. Did have a restroom attendant though.
Great trip thread Kind Sir. Awesome pics! Now I know where to go for some awesome beach and eats! Road Trip!
I've lived in Levelland, just 30 some miles west of Lubbock for 6 years. Excellent medical in Lubbock. Great retirement spot, IMO. Price is right. Everything is less that Cali. No Income tax, gas $2.65 a gallon. I'm a Van Diego, Vantee Refugee. Could not afford the Fleet in Cali.
Pops was born the 3rd of 4 kids on a 100 acre dry farm just north of Lubbock, in Anton Texas in the 1920's. The only kid to be born in a hospital. Straight into Marines, graduating out of Anton HS at 17, asap after Pearl Harbor. Alumni, Chosin Few. Semper Fi Dad.
Pops loved Texas. Got a pic of him in Mentone, smiling ear to ear, with his cowboy hat on. Mentone is like really the middle of nowhere. The Pecos isn't really a real river anymore there. You can jump over it. Makes Lubbock look lush. LOL . Anyway, I digress.
Homes pricewise around here are at 1991 Escondido, Ca levels, with appreciation here in my experience of $5000 per year for over 6 years on a 1367sq ft. Brick 3/1-1/2/1 on a 60'X152' lot, built in 1964. 2015 purchase with a $84000 $0 down USDA loan. Awesome program for a Used Tilestter. So. Now. Rolling the balance over from 4.5% APR, 21 years left, into a conventional 15yr @ 2.52% APR. Even with 3 Vans and a boat parked in front. Ha! God willing, and the creek don't rise.
Be still my deplorable heart. Van On!
