We finally hit the road out of Livingston – hallelujah!! Our first stop was to meet my Aunt JoAnn and her husband Robert at Man’s Best Friend Dog Park in Mansfield, Texas (halfway between their home west of Fort Worth and our RV park east of Dallas). We grabbed some Torchy’s Tacos on the way;Continue reading “Dallas to Pawhuska & all things between”

sushi, hairdos & homecoming mums
Sunday’s family time was really nice. We met at a sushi restaurant (the only sushi restaurant) in Livingston. Not surprisingly, the sushi wasn’t that great, but it “scratched the itch” as Brad put it. After lunch, we all met back at the RV for cold brew and catching up. Fernando was happy to finally bondContinue reading “sushi, hairdos & homecoming mums”
hanging in Houston
Last weekend Deron had some errands to run down in Houston (about 45 minutes from where we are camped), and asked if I’d like to come too, for the heck of it, so we packed up the dogs, ran the errands and then stopped at a random (sketch) dog park to let the pups runContinue reading “hanging in Houston”
oh, the humidity!
For the past couple weeks we’ve been watching old episodes of Good Eats, which inspired Deron to check out a local butcher and buy some fresh meat to experiment with, which is good because eating out is getting pretty boring – restaurants around here are mostly all BBQ or fried food – not a lotContinue reading “oh, the humidity!”
show me the gators!
Took care of some business this week! Deron and I both surrendered our California driver’s licenses and acquired Texas licenses instead. So weird to no longer have those same license numbers we’ve had since we were 16! The nice thing is the new licenses are good for 8 years (!) and we can renew themContinue reading “show me the gators!”
all things Waco
We spent three nights in Riesel, Texas, just outside of Waco, and had lots of fun touring around the town of Waco: shopping at Magnolia Market at the Silos plus lunching at the food trucks there, enjoying the beautiful scenery at Lake Waco and the Brazos River, driving past several homes featured on Fixer UpperContinue reading “all things Waco”
SPOILER ALERT: For those of you who like to skip the drama, YES – we finally broke out of Alamogordo!!!! After a lazy, rainy weekend we woke up Monday morning in anticipation of finally getting our coach back that afternoon. As the day slowly passed, we tried our best to distract ourselves. Finally Deron spokeContinue reading “spelunking”
oh no… still in Alamogordo!
So we checked out of our Alamogordo hotel late Monday morning, on faith that the part for our RV would be delivered and installed before the shop closed at 5pm. At 12:30 we heard the part had indeed arrived, but the mechanic was at lunch. While we waited, we spent the afternoon driving around /Continue reading “oh no… still in Alamogordo!”
Continuing our journey through New Mexico, we drove through a crazy thunderstorm (see video on social media) and then paused briefly in Las Cruces (lunch for us; dog park visit for the pups) and then continued on to Tularosa, where we had a Harvest Host reservation at the Tularosa Vineyard – a tiny, family-owned winery.Continue reading “the tow”
all the grand sites to see in AZ!
Hey, if you’ve come back for more – thank you! It’s fun to know that people are traveling with us! We finished our time in Prescott on Thursday, July 29. During the last few days we were there, we had fun touring Jerome, Prescott’s historic district, and the Grand Canyon – lots of pics inContinue reading “all the grand sites to see in AZ!”
