Here We Go Again

Hey Guys! We spent almost a month at my parent’s house in the Southwest corner of Missouri visiting with family and friends! One of our friends (waves to Gogo and family) sold Girl Scout Cookies with her troop…and well…we always like to support our friends in all of their endeavors. Especially when food is involved. … Continue reading »

Hey Guys!! We spent three weeks back in our old stomping grounds. It was really weird being in familiar surroundings after a year of moving to a new city every week or two. Why did we go back to the Houston area when our 50 state exploration isn’t done? We have friends in the area … Continue reading »

Austin, TX

Hey Guys! So, we spent a week in Austin…but we really didn’t do much at all. We stayed in a great little state park and didn’t even get any hiking in. I guess that’s what happens when three out of the five of us were sick or injured. We had an allergy issue, a cold, … Continue reading »

Fredericksburg, TX

Guten Tag! Willkommen to Fredericksburg! Sprechen Sie Deutsch? The language the German settlers brought with them to this area back in the 1800s can still be heard and seen in most of the signs and buildings around town and if you listen carefully, you can even hear it when you listen to the locals.

San Antonio

Our plan was to spend two weeks in San Antonio, but we’ve found that bigger cities aren’t really our thing. So, we ended up cutting our visit to one week. We managed to get everything on our list done for this area in a couple of days. We’d been to San Antonio before so our … Continue reading »

One of the rules at Long Draw is no cell phones.  While I was taking the picture above, the waitress … Continue reading »

Ghost Towns and Border Crossings

We spent two weeks in the Big Bend area and while Big Bend National Park was what brought us to the area, we were pleasantly surprised to find that there’s so much more to do!  When we planned this part of our trip we didn’t plan to cross the border to Mexico, but when everyone (including … Continue reading »

Big Bend National Park

Big Bend National Park is harsh and unforgiving and isn’t apologetic about it at all. If you want someplace soft, lush, or easy, this is not the park for you. But, if you’re into adventure, you want some fantastic views that you have to work to get to, and you love a park that’s diverse…this … Continue reading »
