Rest areas are the Star Trek equivalent of coming out of warp speed. They give you a chance to slow down and pull over to experience a small part of your current location.
When we traveled to Port Aransas from the Valley, since we were coming from the south, we just crossed a bridge from Corpus Christi to get onto Mustang Island. We could have left the same way, but since we were going north from there, it would have added unnecessary miles to our drive.
We woke up to some chilly temperatures at Fountainebleau State Park while packing up to make our way over to Abbeville, Louisiana for a month long stay at Betty’s RV Park. For those that don’t know Sharon calls this park “the happiest place in Louisiana” and I must say I agree.
Not long ago I wrote a post about a kitchen gadget called a Chef’n which is a small, hand operated vegetable chopper that we use around the RV kitchen and our home kitchen as well. As I wrote in the opening remarks of that post it was a departure from the kinds of things about which I usually write.
Major League Baseball is just around the corner, and the Texas Rangers have already knocked it out of the park. The Rangers, based in Arlington, Texas are the first professional baseball franchise to team up with a local golf course.
Solitude, an exhibit of photographs by Agron Jashari, will open on March 31. There will be an opening reception from 2 pm. – 4 p.m. at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in Broad Channel. This exhibit will be on display for two months.
Do you believe in ghosts? Do you think it is possible that the spirits of those long departed from this world can return? Are tales of ghosts and hauntings merely the product of overactive imaginations? Ask some of the rangers at Arizona’s Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park, and you might learn that more than a few believe in ghosts.
Our long, speedy journey east to Texas wasn’t easy, but I’ll let Jim tell you about the mechanical details later. I’m just glad it finally ended at Kerrville-Schreiner Park Park, one of the nicest spots we’ve ever stayed in as far as organized campgrounds go.
Anyone with the cash can buy a recreational vehicle. Most can be driven on the street without any additional training. But if the owner hasn’t mastered the art of avoiding RV wrecks and disasters, all bets are off.
Would you like to camp more and pay less? Would you like to meet fellow RVers and get their tips on the best places to eat, tour and get services in their towns? Would you like to set up camp in quiet spots without other RV’s five feet away?
Most county parks offer inexpensive RV camping in addition to their day-use areas. These are some of the amazing locations where you can set up camp for cheap.
It was day two of our blogger get together. I had another fun excursion planned for the day sharing some of my favorite Arizona scenery with friends. While getting ready that morning, I received a text message from Nancy reluctantly bowing out of the day’s activities.
The popular Good Sam Trip Planner will no longer be available as of April 10, 2019. Luckily, there are still some very useful resources for RV trip planning that will help you map out your travels, find campgrounds and more.
In all of our research about full time RVing, one recurring topic is choosing a domicile state. While some RVers choose to keep their domicile state, others will pick a new domicile state. We chose Texas as our domicile state and in this post we share what that process was like.
I show you what a difference it can make trying out a few access points vs just selecting the one with the best signal. I also have some fun at the end and show you what I can do with a NanoStation 5AC radio.
