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 »

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 »

North Texas Family Visit

With only about 200 miles to travel we pulled out of the Caddo River Access RV Park in Glenwood on Sunday about 9:20 am.  Our GPS took us a different route than we’d ever traveled before and we both really enjoyed it. We headed west on US 70 then picked up AR 27 in Kirby … Continue reading »

Travel Days – Mount Horeb, WI to Glenwood, AR

Friday 10/19 we woke up early (6:00 am) so that we could go in the ‘big house’ and give Paityn and Cameron hugs before they got on the school bus at 7:10 am. We were treated to Maggie (yellow lab) catching a mouse that had been haunting the house the last couple of days.  While … Continue reading »

Time With The Kids

Our visit to Wisconsin went much quicker than I would have cared for but we didn’t do as much running around as we did the last time we visited. Saturday was fairly busy as we watched Alex, Ben and Zoe while Dan and Amanda went to Milwaukee to watch the Brewers game – they lost. … Continue reading »

I Must Confess…

Saturday (10/6) turned out to be a very low-key day for us.  Michael woke up the night before with some sort of gastrointestinal thing going on and spent most of the night going between the bed and the bathroom. The following day wasn’t much better.  He slept until after 11:00 am and then just chilled … Continue reading »

Montana Owners Club Rally

BEWARE:  LONG post ahead! Tuesday we worked on getting ready for the Montana rally.  We spoke with veteran vendors, Gary and Linda, who’ve been to this rally before to get some ideas of what to expect since I hadn’t gotten much information from the rally organizers. Our chat was very helpful in that we found … Continue reading »

Phillipsburg, MO to Terre Haute, IN

​We were up about 6:30 and while I did some PTB work Michael made breakfast (bagelwiches) and stowed some things.  The only thing to do outside was unhook the power. We pulled out of the Happy Trails RV Park (nice little campground) just before 8:30 with 344 miles ahead of us…pretty much all on interstates.  … Continue reading »
