After a few days staying in the Houston area, Brad and I headed over to Lake Medina, which is an hour northwest of San Antonio. The first two hours of the drive were good, but then we hit major traffic. There was a bad accident and the police closed down part of the highway. … More Off the Beaten Path
We are roaming around in Texas! This is my first time in this state and everything really is bigger in Texas. 😉 When we crossed the Texas border we saw lots of oil manufacturing and the land is pretty flat. Our first stop was Willis, which is about forty-five miles north of Houston. We … More Texas
We are on the road again. Yea! Though we enjoyed being near family and the beach, it was time to move on from Savannah. We planned our trip so we would drive a few days in a row and then stay at a campground for a few days, arriving in Phoenix, Arizona by the end … More One, two, three…take off!
Brad and I just celebrated our eleventh wedding anniversary. It seems crazy that we have been married for eleven years since it doesn’t feel like that much time has passed between when we first met and said “I do.” Here we are, eleven years into our marriage, living in the smallest space yet, traveling around … More Zip-lining

We really don’t want to know what it feels like to be in a 5th wheel with strong winds and are grateful we didn’t have to experience that. … More Anyone want to go fishing?

We cannot open our screen door and windows because they … More Happy Birthday to Me

Brad is a Google search king—I am more like a pauper—and a while ago he searched for activities in Jacksonville, FL and found a really cool big cat rescue. This rescue has a few scheduled days a month where you can go watch … More Lions, Tigers, Cougars, Bone Yard Beach…oh my!

One would think this would be easy as so many brochures and pictures on-line show that view, but it’s not as easy as it sounds. That’s because … More Picture Perfect
Sorry for being slow with blog updates as I have been really busy with my photography Etsy shop and we have been working on stuff around the 5th wheel the last few weeks. We have new curtains hung, most of the decorating done (just need to find an area rug and reupholster the kitchen chairs) … More Botany Bay Plantation
Like with buying a house, a new (or new to you) RV, there is work to be done to make the space feel more like home. One of the reasons we picked a 5th wheel was because the layout made the space feel homier and the slides added space. One thing I didn’t like in … More Guide 1: Making Your RV Homier with Curtains
