When Rueben and I started RVing in June 2020, we talked about where we wanted to go, and Colorado was my first choice. When I turned thirty 10(!) years ago, I took a solo road trip to Colorado and as cheesy as it sounds, it changed my life in so many positive ways. I fell… Continue reading We Made it to Colorado!
In January of this year, we decided to be fancy and stay on the beach for the month! We headed to Bolivar Peninsula, which is a ferry ride away from Galveston. We stayed at Lazy Pelican RV Park which is just two blocks from the water, and has free laundry service - amazing! The beach… Continue reading Life’s a Beach! Kind Of…
We've been in Colorado for about 5 weeks now, and it's absolutely gorgeous here. I'd be remiss if I didn't catch up on the rest of our travels, though, so here goes back to October in New Mexico! After we left Albuquerque, we met up with friends who were also RVing. They had gone all… Continue reading Lots of Boondocking, and Back to Texas!
Once we left Water Canyon and Very Large Array, we decided to spend time in a bigger city where we could find a truck, or at least leave our RV in a safe location while we went elsewhere to buy one. So, Albuquerque was our next stop! The drive there was pretty beautiful. We stayed… Continue reading Albuquerque, Amarillo, and a New Truck!
After staying in Alamogordo, New Mexico, we decided to go north and planned to stay at Water Canyon, a beautiful spot in the Cibola National Forest. The drive there wasn't bad, either. On our way, we stopped to see Valley of Fires, an area made up of lava flow from 5,000 years ago. The… Continue reading Forest Parking and When We Realized We Needed a Truck
After our beautiful hike in Lincoln National Forest, Rueben and I were driving back to Alamogordo and I realized the sunset was turning out to be gorgeous. Luckily were able to park at the perfect overlook to witness this amazing view. I wish I could find this overlook on the map, because it was perfect! I… Continue reading Another Incredible Sunset
“If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I'll bet they'd live a lot differently.” - Bill Watterson "I think that's the galaxy..." Rueben and I were standing outside our first stop in New Mexico, looking at an amazing night sky. Yup, it was the galaxy! Neither one of us had ever seen it… Continue reading New Mexico, Stars, and This Thing Called Boondocking
We've been living the RV life for about five months now, which, wow! Honestly, it's so great. In the evenings we'll sit outside and look at the stars, and the galaxy(!), and say wow, we are lucky to be able to do this. To go where we want, when we want, still be able to… Continue reading RV Life and Del Rio’s Lake Amistad
2019 was an interesting year! We lived in San Antonio, hung out with friends and family, but didn't really take advantage of all that the city has to offer. While it was nice being in a beautiful apartment and getting settled in our jobs in San Antonio, we really missed traveling. We did take a… Continue reading What I’ve Been Up to Lately – It’s Exciting!
In fifth grade, I got to go to McDonald Observatory for a star party, which blew my mind. Not only did I get to buy freeze-dried ice cream and look through huge telescopes, a shooting star appeared at the same time that the tour guide was talking about them. We thought he somehow planned it!… Continue reading Change in Plans Leads to an Amazing Sunset
