Thumbs up Did you do the crossing?

Has anyone here made such a trip? If so, what are your thoughts on leaving from Texas vs. Louisiana; how long should the trip take; and, what time of year is optimal? Also, what problems/obstacles would be encountered?

Hello Charles! I was wondering if you made the crossing from Texas to Progreso back then? I would be interested in meeting you sometime to exchange experience and see what useful info I can add to my page.
