Bright Spot in the Middle of the Desert

Our time in Gila Bend went fast, too fast.  The park turned out to be a really nice KOA…and we’re not fans of KOA but we’d recommend this place.  The rates are reasonable (unlike many KOAs) plus when the owner found out Michael was retired military he gave us a discount.  Any other KOA we’ve … Continue reading »

Plans Are Made to Be Changed…

Our original plan was to leave Deming on Wednesday but with the snow threat (that didn’t amount to anything) we stayed an extra day.  The ‘plan’ was to get a site at the FamCamp on Davis-Monthan Air Force Base for a couple of days.  However, when I called to see if they had any sites … Continue reading »

Fort Stockton, TX & Deming, NM

We finished up the last of Michael’s VA appointments on Friday morning.  By a fluke we found out he has a hernia.  An incisional epigastric hernia to be exact.  Caused by gall bladder surgery he had done in 2008.  It doesn’t really bother him but we’ll have it looked soon. We set sail about 8:30 … Continue reading »

Making It Our Own

PTB has been pretty quiet which was nice as it gave us time to get some chores done around the new coach.  Slowly the new coach is becoming home. We’ve done several organizational projects like adding office organization trays to the big drawer in the entertainment center which helped immensely with being able to find things … Continue reading »

What a week!

On Friday 11/30 we hopped a Delta flight that took us to the freezing cold of Wisconsin so that we could stay with two of our grandchildren (Paityn and Cameron) while their parents flew off to the Dominican Republic to bask in the warmth.  See anything wrong with this picture??? Zack picked us up at … Continue reading »

Historic Castroville, TX

We took the day on Saturday (11/24) to go and explore Castroville, which is about 25 miles east of Hondo. Our first stop was at the Steinbach Haus Visitors Center which is in a building that was originally built in Alsace, France in the 1600s.  The home was dismantled (its built with pegs) in 1988 … Continue reading »

Peacocks and Turkey

There was an ice cream social at the community room on Sunday evening (a weekly event) and a friend we know from the oil field (Peggy) invited us to meet her there.  Since we’d never met in person, we thought it was a good excuse to go enjoy some ice cream. As ‘visitors’ we were … Continue reading »

Fun Discovery!

Our first day in Hondo was spent running errands in San Antonio.  Michael had to have blood drawn at 8:00 am so we left shortly before 7:00 am but should have allotted more time as we didn’t end up arriving to the clinic until 8:15. From there it was time for breakfast so we headed … Continue reading »

We Flew the Coop!

Tuesday 11/13 After a week living in the T&S parking lot…we finally hit the road!  While everyone (Tim, Tex, Ashley, John, Albert, etc) were wonderful to us we were both anxious to hit the road and set up in a park somewhere and really get to ‘know’ our new home.  If you’re ever looking to … Continue reading »

Moving Day Has Arrived

Tuesday 11/6 Everyone thinks I should be excited…and I guess I should be…but…so far…not so much.  There are just so many things I’m not thrilled about:  Lack of carpet  Rig paint color  Lack of space on the sides of the bed  Having to leave our awesome theater seat behind  Storage for my pots and pans … Continue reading »
