There's No Place Like Home Base - Why We Chose Hidden Valley RV Park To Be Ours

Welcome Guest Blogger: Susan Fellows

At the San Antonio Riverwalk

My husband, Chris, and I  made the decision to become full time RVers about two years ago and that dream became a reality last March (2015).  We are both prior military and so, were infected with the travel bug at an early age. Chris retired from the Air Force after 20 years and we settled into a less nomadic life but continued to explore this beautiful country of ours on holidays and weekends.  We planned, as many people do, to travel more extensively in our golden years.  We thought there would be time.  In 2014, when I was diagnosed with terminal cancer, we quickly decided that if we were going to realize this dream we would have to do it soon.  And here we are:   A year into our full-time RV life and loving every moment.

Many people who decide to become full timers do not chose a home base, they simply travel wherever the wind may blow them. But, as amazing as that sounds, we knew we had to choose a location to return to each year due to my need of ongoing medical treatment.  San Antonio was an easy choice.  Not only is the weather suitable to living in a motorhome but our youngest, and according to her, most adored, daughter lives here.  

Upon arriving in San Antonio we stayed at a luxury RV resort close to our daughter’s apartment but knew we would be moving to something more affordable and less crowded.  We started exploring the local RV parks and found Hidden Valley RV Park.  We are so glad we did.

Hidden Valley is a small RV park in a quiet country setting.  If you’ve never been to San Antonio, it’s a huge city and the rush hour traffic is horrendous.  The highway noise was constant at the other RV parks we looked at and the sites were tiny with few places to walk our dogs.  Not so at Hidden Valley.  What it lacks in more luxurious amenities it gains in serenity.  The location is also excellent, under 30 minutes from downtown and the major attractions and 15 minutes from Lackland AFB for those coming to visit loved ones in the military.   The managers, Teri and Mark, are amazing people and we plan to return yearly for the winter months and are even workamping.   Teri has asked if I want to contribute to her blog and, here I am, submitting my first article.  See you next week.  Enjoy! 

Susan Fellows, a full time RVer, took up the nomadic lifestyle in 2015. 
After retiring from a job with the Social Security Administration,
she and her husband Chris traded their house for an RV home.   
They will be spending the winters work camping at Hidden Valley 
RV Park in Von Ormy, TX and the rest of the year traveling this 
great nation of ours.  Susan has volunteered to send blog 
contributions for Hidden Valley about her experiences as a new RVer.
