Pikes Peak and Our Drive to Colorado Springs

For my 40th birthday in May, Rueben got me some awesome hiking boots, and a weekend in Colorado Springs! That's all I wanted - some good waterproof boots (the ones I wore for this weekend in Colorado Springs were...not good) and to see more of Colorado. First stop - gorgeous Pikes Peak! First, I have… Continue reading Pikes Peak and Our Drive to Colorado Springs

We Made it to Colorado!

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!

Life’s a Beach! Kind Of…

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…

Back in Texas and Enjoying Nature

After spending a week in San Angelo, we decided to be closer to friends and family, especially since the holidays were coming up. We were still being safe wearing masks, keeping our distance, but we at least wanted to be able to see everyone in person! Plus, we had just boondocked for almost two weeks… Continue reading Back in Texas and Enjoying Nature

Lots of Boondocking, and Back to Texas!

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!

Albuquerque, Amarillo, and a New Truck!

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!

Forest Parking and When We Realized We Needed a 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

RV Life and Del Rio’s Lake Amistad

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

What I’ve Been Up to Lately – It’s Exciting!

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!

Change in Plans Leads to an Amazing Sunset

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
