Welcome Back Y'all!

We're deep into Summer of this very odd 2020, and we're happier than ever to be able to travel like we do. We've discovered some great parks so far this Summer and look forward to visiting a lot more Texas campgrounds over the next several months.

We hear that a lot of folks are looking to join the RV community these days. That's awesome! But, as a reminder, most campgrounds are requiring advance reservations. So before you hit the road to play your trip by ear, check with the local campgrounds about their current travel restrictions and reservation requirements.

Rocky Creek Park Visitors' Guide

Rocky Creek Park
For years, we have tried to camp at Corps of Engineers (COE) parks. But every time we have a reservation, a storm comes through and floods the park, canceling our reservation.

Suaoki Portable Power Station Review

Suaoki Portable Power Station Review
One of the things we love about RV life is that today's technology allows us to work from our campsite. We feel more creative, relaxed and productive when we are sitting outside listening to the birds as we work. To prolong our ability to work outside, we've been known to run an extension cord from the basement of our RV to power our computers. But then we have to worry about tripping over the cord. Today we're testing the S370 Portable Power Station by Suaoki... [Watch the Video and See the Full Post]
