Why Should You Use A-List, You Ask?

Good question! Using a list will allow you to make your packing experience so much more pleasant. When you’re trying to remember everything you have to do while preparing for your travels. Especially when you are packing for the entire family. I know once you get out and about after being locked up from the Coronavirus the last thing your worried about is a list, but it could come in handy.

 Timeframe

When planning your vacation, your time limit to prepare will depend on the size of your family as well as your destination. I recommend going over your list at least two weeks in advance. If you have a large family you may want to do this soon.

Why so early, you ask?

This gives you plenty of time to review the list in case you need to pick anything up at the store. Also, if you need to do any updates say call the airport, train/bus station for the amount of luggage you’re allowed, weight limits plus to confirm your transportation is still a go. Plus, if you need any additional paperwork, you might be required to bring.

Primary Items

It’s amazing how we use these items every day, yet when we go to pack for a vacation, we seem to always forget at least one thing.

Don’t sweat we all do this; you are not alone.

Oh, if you have children of any kind, it only gets much harder. They think of only the things they want to take not the necessities. Leaving you with spending more of your budget you hadn’t planned.

Just imagine all the things you have to remember when packing for an infant or toddler. Yes, it can be a nightmare. A check-off list makes this a lot easier to remember all the small items required, i.e., Gas Meds, Orajel, Tylenol, Cold n Cough, thermostat, nail clippers, and binky’s the list can go on. You get my point right. Not to mention if you are a new parent, this can be even more stressful to remember everything.

Extra Items

You may even want to add other items you plan on taking like googles, flotation devices, sunscreen, skies, snowboard, and anything else to entertain you children. Maybe you want to add extra items for yourself like the book you bought a month ago haven’t had the time to read.

I have learned the best way to ensure I have everything is by not checking the item off until I have put it in the luggage. It never fails I could have it set on the bed check it off my list. It never makes its way into my luggage. I get so frustrated with myself when this happens. No, I am not saying you are as bad as I am when it comes to this. Things happen; there are tons of distractions this day in age. Doorbell, cell phone, kids, television, and etc.

I now always make sure it is in the luggage before I place the checkmark next to the item this way I know without a dought I have the item I wanted packed.

 Hotels

Choose a hotel to meet your needs. I like the sites to show pictures of the rooms as well as the amenities.

The bad experience I had gone off the website to book the room with the amenities got to the room wasn’t even like it had been described. Long story short we found another hotel moved the same night.

This is the list I use when I look for a room now:

Safety is the number one factor. Even some of the nicer hotels this day in age can have people doing drugs within them. Not good when you walk down the hall to smell snuck weed. Talk about a smell you’ll never forget. It smells just like the animal spray. The best thing is you don’t have to have a tomato bath to get off the smell; however, you may want a shower after smell it.

You may even want to call the local authorities to check of criminal activity within the area you plan on staying. This will allow you to be prepared if pickpocketing, human trafficking or any other crime is high.

Campsite

If you have a route planned out, you may want to schedule stops in advance to ensure availability. During the summer months, campgrounds tend to fill up quick people who don’t realize how hard it can be to find an empty spot. Not to mention a campsite to include all the amenities you are looking for so your family has a wonderful time.

Vacations are hard enough without being able to find a beautiful place to stay. Believe me when I say the more delightful facilities fill up fast.

My husband and I decided to take the kids camping we decided to go to the state park. Little did we know one it now cost to camp at a state park but two they were full. We had driven hours from our home, we got lucky for the fact my husband had a family member who had some land not far from where we were planning on camping. We ended up camping there instead. It was an experience we all laugh about still today.

Documents

You think this is crazy to put on your list but it’s not. Why well if your driver’s license is in your wallet/purse, you will be sure not to forget them. Other items such as insurance cards, any discount cards like AARP, choice rewards, and etc. can be useful when you travel.

 Adequate Funding

Most people rely on their bank card and/or credit card when they travel, plus they may have a little bit of cash on them.

You want to be safe with your bank and/or credit card. Do they offer a wallet feature where if your card goes missing, you can lock your card till it is found? This is a good idea to find out before you travel. Not all banks have this feature.

You also will want to get with your bank to inform them of your travels. Some banks don’t allow cards to be used out of state for fraud reasons. To keep from having your vacation disrupted due to not being able to your use card till the next day when you can get ahold of the bank. Imagine you are at a restaurant you go to use your card to find out it has been declined. Nothing more embarrassing, especially if you don’t have the cash with you on hand to pay your bill. Add it to your list to do before you leave your home.

Don’t plan to use only your bank card. If it were to get lost/stolen or decided to quit working, you could be left with no funds to enjoy your vacation. It is wise to diversify your funds i.e., traveler’s checks, prepaid cards, and/or credit cards.

Meal Preparations

You will want to review the area in which you plan on traveling. You might have an idea about what type of restaurants you’ll want to visit. Along with getting to know the cost so you don’t end up with an unexpected surprise bill in which wipes out half your spending fund to take away from your fun. When you are busy with everything, this can be overlooked when planning the cost of food in another state or aboard.

Activities

Most of the time, when we choose a vacation area for the events going on in the area, we have chosen.
• Shopping venues
• Restaurants
• Amusement parks
• Boardwalk
• Beach
• River
• White water rafting
• Water skiing
• Snow skiing
• Snowboarding, etc.
Whichever you decide to do, you’ll want to check out the prices of the activities to ensure you have enough money allotted for all the activities you wish to participate in.

Emergency fund

You’re going to want to make sure you have an emergency fund. Most people don’t consider this as part of a budget for a vacation. However, It is crucial not to jinks anyone but should your car break down or someone gets hurt/sick, you need to have some extra cash available for these surprises which always seem to happen on vacation.

Final Prep

Don’t forget to put your list in your suitcase, this way you ensure everything you took with you comes home. How? You put a line through your check to make an X this way; you have double-checked your list not to leave anything behind.

You may even want to add the things that you have purchased while on your vacation.

Nothing like getting home your tired you need to charge your cell phone to realize you left it behind plugged in next to the bed at the hotel. This has happened to me. It is annoying.

How A-Town Got Named After A Dead Man Not From Texas

How It All Began

Before the 1820s, the region of Hitchcock was held by Karankawa Indians (also known as Carancahuas, Carancahuases, Carancouas, Caranhouas, Caronkawa) were Native Americans that concentrated in southern Texas along the Gulf of Mexico coast. They were several independent seasonal travel groups who shared the same language plus much of the same culture. They voyaged from place to place in their dugouts (canoes). There would be thirty to forty people in their group. They would remain in each location for roughly about four weeks.

In 1825, Stephen Austin commissioned as a captain to lead volunteers to expel the Karankaw from Austin land grant. In later years the Karankawa were repeatedly attacked by Texan colonists who drove then out of their native lands. By the 1840s, the Karankawa split into two groups, one settled on Padre Island, and the other fled to Mexico to the state of Tamaulipas.

It was 1858, Juan Nepomuceno Cortina led a raid of Texan Colonists against the Karakawa’s killing the remaining members of the tribe. By 1892, the Karakawa people were believed to be extinct.

People moved into the area of Hitchcock recorded as early as the 1840s, who settled along the Highland Bayou. They were farmers taking their produce by canoe to Galveston Island to sell at the Market, for they were in high demand since vegetables couldn’t be raised on the island.

The other occupation as this time in the Hitchcock area was a cattleman. The Tacquard family had their start with vast herds of Texas cattle, which were native to these lands.

Lent Munson Hitchcock, born Bridgeport, Connecticut, was a Texas Navy man who had purchased 3,600 acres of land on the mainland. He willed it to his wife and son when he died.

Mrs. Hitchcock was approached by the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railroad Company for a right-of-way. After much effort on the railroad part, Mrs. Hitchcock made a deal with the railway company to grant the right-of-way, but only if a station and the townsite would be named after her late husband. This is how this town became known as Hitchcock.

It is said that around 1930, Hitchcock was the shipping capital of the United States. Unfortunately, in the 1930s, farmers began having problems with insects destroying their crops with no way to fight the insects. Also, at this time, other markets started to open, which hurt Hitchcock. Until Pan American Oil Company opened in Texas City, this provided many need jobs for the people of Hitchcock.

Hitchcock boomed once again during World War II for the bases which opened Camp Wallace, and the Blimp Base both were located within Hitchcock.

Camp Wallace Base

Camp Wallace, also known as “Swamp Wallace” United States Army Basic Training Camp in Galveston County, Texas, it was designed as a training center for Antiaircraft Units it was formally opened on June 1, 1941. The base was named for Colonel Elmer J. Wallace of the 59th Coast Artillery, who was fatally wounded in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive of 1918. Camp Wallace got its nickname “Swamp Wallace” from the fact it rained excessively from the beginning of its construction.

On April 15, 1944, Camp Wallace, the camp was officially transferred over to the United States, Department of the Navy used as a Naval Training Center and a Distribution Center this location was used to hold, Basic Training as known as “Boot Camp.”

After the war, Camp Wallace became the Naval Personnel Separation Center.

On October 15, 1946, Camp Wallace site became custody of the War Assets Administration.

After the Texas City Disaster of April 16, 1947, the cold storage facility at Camp Wallace was converted into a morgue. The Red Cross, along with Federal Works Administration, set up shelters for evacuees from the Texas City disaster area. It was recorded 399 dead, and 113 missing.

Following the Texas City Disaster, Camp Wallace was declared surplus with orders of the removal of all buildings.

Upon the surplus completion, part of the land (915 acres) was deed to the University of Houston. Remaining parcels were either returned to the original owners or set aside for a county park.

This day nothing stands left of the Army or Naval Base. Part of what was once the base is a park with a historical marker. Another part of the base has become the Galveston County Fair Grounds.

Naval Air Station

Hitchcock Naval Air Station is also known as “Blimp Base,” was built-in 1942 but was not commissioned until May 22, 1943. Just 15 miles north of Galveston, the base was a total of 3,000 acres. The base housed the hangar, barracks, mess hall, gymnasium, auditorium, and swimming pool, which was used to train personnel to swim as well as water rescue.

Hitchcock Naval Air Station housed the Fleet Airship Wing Two ZP-23 lighter-than-air-aircraft blimps. The hangar size was 1,000 feet long, 300 feet wide and 200 feet high it cost $10,000 to build, held six blimp aircraft. It had massive concrete pillars while the rest of the hanger was made of wood.

The Fleet Airship Wing Two ZP-21 at NAS Richmond, Florida, was the Headquarters. There was ZP-22 at NAS Houma, Louisiana, and ZP-23 at NAS Hitchcock, Texas. They covered the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico, the northern Caribbean from San Julian, the Isle of Pines (now called Isla de la Juventud) and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba as well as Vernam Field, Jamaica. There were two auxiliary fields, one in Key West, Florida, the other in Brownsville, Texas.

During the war, 532 ships were sunk without escorts near the U.S. coast by enemy submarines. There was one ship, the Persephone, which was a tanker out of 89,000 to be escorted. It was sunken by the enemy.

Airships engaged submarines with depth charges at times using other on-board weapons. These Airships were exceptional at driving subs to a limited speed. It also affected their range, which prevented them from attacking convoys. The weaponry available to the airships were so limited they had little chance of sinking a submarine. Until the U.S. Navy developed the Mark 24 mine. The Mark 24 was called a mine for security reasons; it was actually an aircraft launched, anti-submarine passive acoustic homing torpedo, which is an acoustic torpedo aims itself by listening for specific sounds (sonar) of its target.

The Blimp aircraft was used to scout for the German Navy submarines called “Wolf Packs” which were believed to be lurking around in the Gulf of Mexico.

In 1945, citizens of Hitchcock voted to become a water and sewer district. It wasn’t until 1950 when it was put into operation.

Hitchcock Naval Air Station was sold to John W. Mecom, Sr. in the late 1950s. However, the Water District purchased the disposal plant, water well, tower plus water and sewer lines at the Blimp Base with approximately 30 acres of land. Santa Fe leased the water, well, and tank to get started with a water supply.

Mr. Mecom leased the hanger to Dowen McLaughlin, Inc., a company to worked government contracts. Dowen McLaughlin, Inc., during the Korean War, used the hangar to remanufactured half-track vehicles and World War II tanks to be used in the war. The equipment once was assembled at the hangar was loaded onto flat cars and shipped to war zones. In 1953, the contact ended.

In 1961, Hurricane Carla damaged the hangar beyond repair. In 1962, they removed the wooden parts of the hangar leaving only the concrete pillars to indicate where the front and the back of the hangar stood plus the foundation as a reminder today there was once a Hitchcock Naval Air Station.

 Galveston County Fair & Rodeo

Since 1984, Hitchcock became home to the Galveston County Fair & Rodeo. The Galveston County Fair & Rodeo started in 1938, being held at facilities in Runge Park in Arcadia. However, in the early 1980’s it had reached the capacity of growth, so the Fair and Rodeo were moved to Jack Brooks Park in Hitchcock. The same grounds to house Camp Wallace.

The Galveston County Fair & Rodeo, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to serve the youth of Galveston County by promoting youth, education, agriculture by supporting 4-H and FFA programs.
