  1. Hi,
    I commented a few months back about how I was getting ready to retire from the military and hit the road in my RV. Well, I’ve been on the road now for a couple of months! Other than a slight delay with Florida DMV as I work my way through their process to re-title my vehicles, all has gone great πŸ™‚ Right now I’m enjoying New Orleans visiting some friends in the area. Next I’m off to Plano, TX to visit some folks that I worked with when we were stationed in Japan. Catching up on your blog this evening reminded me that you are in TX and while it is a BIG state, I was wondering if you had any RV park recommendations? I’m gravitating to a couple I see in the Lavon Lake area. After that, I’m off to Montana for a family wedding in early August. A lot of travel my first few months but I’m planning on slowing down…after heading south for the Winter!

    Again…your blog is awesome and a big source of inspiration to explore the USA!

    • Hi Dave!
      Congrats on hitting the road!! I’m touched to know I’ve been a source of inspiration for you to explore the country. Thank you!
      I’ve never been to the Lake Lavon area, or the Dallas area for that matter. But the Texas coast or Hill Country are both excellent places to “winter”. My first choice would be the coast, but leave by April at the latest. Rockport and Port A are both lovely. I have never been, but many folks love South Padre Island. If you decide to hit the coast or Hill Country, email me and I’ll give you some suggestions for that area.
      Best of luck and safe travels!

      • Thanks! Hill Country is definitely on my list…just not during the Summer! I’m in Louisiana now and I have to admit I’m getting a little tired of this heat! After I visit my friends in Plano for a few days I’m beating feet north to Montana as quickly as I can πŸ™‚ I’m hoping to get to Austin (one of my favorite towns!) next Spring. I’ll definitely hit you up for some advice.

        Keep up your awesome writing!! You do a great job of capturing the spirit of the places you visit. One of these days I’ll get my blog going….

        • Thank you! πŸ™‚ Let me know when you get your blog going.

          Yup, I’m over this heat, too. I wish I was headed north right now! It seems everyone I know is in, just came back from, or is going to Wyoming. My hope is to head north by late August (may not be that likely) or begin heading south to the Texas coast for the winter. If that’s the case, then I hope to be headed north again by February-ish, weather depending.

  2. Just found your blog and I’m loving it. You’re hilarious. We’re hitting the road in three weeks and I just read your tips for desert boondocking. I appreciate 9 and 10. The awning mold and the pool of water ha. Never would have thought of that. If you have any tips for boondocking in extreme heat with a cat I would love some advice. We are going to be going to places like Arizona and Utah and I’m nervous about leaving our cat to go hiking etc but I really don’t want to leave him behind. Thanks hot stuff! πŸ˜‰

    • Hi Charlie!
      Thank you, I’m glad you’re enjoying my musings! Ah yes, my boondocking adventures. Those were the days! Ahem. LOL But I do miss golfing in the sandy desert, that was quite fun!
      As for boondocking in high temps with a pet – I don’t recommend it. I have camped in both Utah and Arizona, but had hookups during the hot weather. The only times I boondocked (in CA and AZ) the weather was cool (80 degrees or less). If you can, opt for NM or CO until mid-October or later when both AZ and UT cool down.
      Let me know what you decide to do and how it went!
      Best of luck to you and you fur baby and safe travels!
