Loyd Park, Grand Prairie, TX

After Hot Springs we decided to head back to the DFW area to visit with my sister Robin and her little family for a few weeks.  Loyd park is right off Hwy 360 and Interstate 20 off of Joe Pool Lake.  We really enjoyed the spot and being so close to family.  My friends Calley…

Caprock Canyon, Quitaque, TX

There is literally barely anything in this town, except a state park with stunning views, hiking trails, bison and prairie dogs.  We decided to meet a friend and his son here while making our way toward Arkansas. I highly recommend checking out this park if you are in the area.  When we first arrived and…

St. Vrain State Park – Longmont, CO

Time to catch up on our blog! In October we spent some time in Colorado, stopping first in Trinidad then making our way north of Denver to Longmont.  St. Vrain State Park was right off Interstate 25 and about 45 minutes south of Fort Collins, an hour north of Denver and about 30 minutes east…

And go….stop, ok, now go….

As with any adventure, plans can change quickly.  After spending two months preparing we were eager to hit the road. Reservations had been made and we planned to leave, until one of our jacks wouldn’t go up all the way, our door handle broke, and we lost our deadbolt while driving to Bill’s Custom Campers. …

About our Adventure

About 9 months ago Clay and I were having a discussion about what we would do after I graduated from college.  We both wanted to move and live somewhere with a more outdoor lifestyle. We work very hard and wanted to have more available to do in our free time than the bars, restaurants and…

Almost ready…

As you may know, we are staying at Clay’s parents' house while we work on our new home.  They left for a month-long family vacation down in Destin, FL, with some other stops on the way. It works out really well for everyone that we are here because we can watch their dogs and help…

Renovations Part 2

Things are progressing nicely with our renovations.  The bedroom walls are finally sanded, primed and painted. I also painted the bathroom, directly on the wallpaper. I picked two colors, Pearly White for the bathroom and bedroom, and Respite Blue for a large accent wall in the bedroom.  I am really happy with the color and…

Renovations

Clay and I have been in Pampa, Texas, for a little over a week and have begun renovations. We went through all our boxes of stuff, storing furniture and items we know we won’t need again until we settle down.  We don't know how much will fit in our new home, but our cabinets are…

Hittin’ the dirt

After purchasing the RV our life got pretty hectic. I ended up having to serve on jury duty for 8 days on a medical malpractice case. While the trial was interesting to observe, the deliberation with 11 other people was terrible and I felt very overwhelmed about having to be one of the decision makers.…

It’s OURS.

WE GOT IT!  We bought the RV with the mural today! PPL Motorhomes in Cleburne, TX did an overall check of everything and only two minor issues were found and corrected. We went through the whole rig with them, going over all the ins and outs of the working parts. We looked at all the…
