Rest is best

It is crazy how sickness seems to repeat itself in our life. We are currently dealing with colds the same day one year later.  3.09.2018  We left Gonzales and has a quick 2 hour drive to Biloxi. We did nothing once we arrived since Aubrey had a fever and a cough. We did get her…

Get in my Belly! 

3/7/2018 We left Mansfield around 11 after we cleaned the RV and the tanks and headed for Gonzalez. Once we arrived and parked at Cabelas we left for New Orleans for diner and to explore a little. We only went to dinner since traffic was so bad and Aubrey had to poop. There was a…

Who has Cash$$

03/08/2018 We went to New Orleans today and our first stop was City Park. Sadly Morning Call only takes cash so we had to wait to get our beignets. We did have fun looking at all the ducks and a swan Aubrey names Sally/ Sully depending on if it was a boy or girl. Aubrey…

Won’t Dry …..Don’t work

3/6/2018  We left Hot Springs today and saw even more flooding on our 4 hour drive to Mansfield.  When we arrived at the campground there was no one to ask where to go or a clearly marked office building. Then a woman appeared riding a lawnmower and told us to go park over there before…

Yeee Yee Yeee

03/05/2018  Today we drove to downtown Hot Springs to check out the National Park. We did a quick hike up and down and decided not to climb the tower since it was as much money as the alligator zoo (and obviously who doesn’t want to go to an alligator zoo). The park was pretty cool…

Look At That Nut!

Before leaving Durant we stopped to see what they claimed to be the worlds largest peanut. Warren was already asleep and ready for the drive to Hot Springs but I had to take a picture and as you can see by his face he was a little annoyed with me to say the least. The…

Recapping what really happened last year

If anyone checked out our story you would know that we took off from Colorado in an RV January 20th 2018 for an epic trip of the lower 48 states. I wanted to be good and blog about our adventure and help keep family in the loop but truth be told it was hard to…

West Virginia visit

Another day trip for us from Fallsburg KY this one was only 40 min away to Huntington West Virginia. We told Aubrey we were going to hike which she wasn’t in the mood for but instead surprised her with a visit to Kustom Kreams. This fun ice cream shop makes the ice cream right in…

The FL Keys

After spending a few days in Naples visiting family and exploring we were ready to head to the Keys. We got our loaded up and ready to go but did not make it very far. In fact, we did not make it out of the RV campground before we hit our first snag. We thought…

Mexico Beach FL

On our way to Mexico Beach we tried to do something fun in Alabama but didn’t find anything that we could easily park at. One of our attempts was for Gator Ally Boardwalk. It was right off the highway so I thought we could stop quickly and maybe see a gator or two. There wasn’t…

NOLA

Next stop was parking at Cabela’s in Gonzalez, Louisiana. We quickly unloaded the car and took off for New Orleans for dinner at Parkway Bakery & Tavern. We ordered the shrimp po’boy and the oyster po’boy which they only had on Wednesday, so we lucked out! We also ordered sweet potato fries and a grilled…

Arkansas

As we left Oklahoma it was raining and continued to rain the entire drive to Hot Springs Arkansas. It was crazy driving along and seeing how close the ground water was getting to the road and houses. According to one of the locals this year broke the record for the most rain fall in over…

Dry camping in Texas

We just left Rockport and are set to begin 3 days of dry camping. For those of you unfamiliar with RVing, this means we will be in parking lots or parks with no power or water hookups. I would normally think this is no problem since we have done it before for 5 days in…

Texas Beaches

When we were in Texas we decided to head to the south and check out some of the beaches in the area. We found a really nice little campground in Rockport which is just outside of Corpus Christi. On the drive there it was crazy to see all of the destruction from the hurricane. There…

San Antonio

From Fort Stockton we traveled onto our first campsite of our visit to Texas which was in San Antonio. It was raining for most of the drive so it wasn’t a good start to our visit. When we checked into our site they told us that if we get a knock on our door in…

Carlsbad Cavern stop

We left Las Cruces and headed to Fort Stockton for the night to break up our drive to San Antonio. Along our way to Fort Stockton we made a stop at Carlsbad Cavern for a few hours. We took the elevator down 800 ft which wasn’t too scary, I am not a big fan of…

White Sand Dunes

The plan was to drive from Phoenix to Las Cruces, however, there was really bad wind all day so we stopped halfway in Bowie AZ for the night. There was not much there other than the campground and a gas station with a convenience store. When we got there it was in the upper 60s…

A visit to Pheonix

We headed off to Phoenix. The drive from southern California was pretty uneventful other than 5 mile traffic jam on the other side of the highway (which till caused a good 30 minute delay for us because people wanted to slow down and see what was going on) and the last 40 minutes turned into…

Coachella and Joshua Tree

We left San Diego to head to Joshua Tree for a few days. The RV park we stayed out was right outside of Coachella and it was really cool! They had a pond, a swimming pool, and tons of fruit trees on property which you could pick from as much as you want. We got…

A visit to San Deigo

Our trip to San Diego. We were in Hollister and our next stop after San Diego is Joshua Tree so San Diego is a little out of the way but we heard it’s pretty cool so we decided to make the trip. On our way we stopped at our favorite place for fresh fruits and…
