Welcome Back Y'all!

Was that some crazy weather or WHAT?!?! After being without good connectivity or city power for the better part of a week, we're working on getting caught up. We hope this Newsletter finds you safe and warm.

This week, we're sharing what we did to prepare for the freakish Winter Storm that came through all of Texas and our thoughts on how the community came together to help each other. We'll share more of our experience with the storm, how our preparation worked out, what we'll do differently in the future and how we fared compared to our friends and family in stick and bricks homes in tomorrow's Wingin' It! So be sure to watch for that.

Episode 5 of our podcast is the first one that we've recorded remotely and we're excited to be included in Travel Trail Sail's list of podcasts to listen to on a road trip!

Our featured stories this week include a list of current Texas State Park closures, the effect of the extreme cold spell on local wildlife, new National Park filming rules and a $265K travel trailer designed for COVID travel??

Let's get started...
