On our most recent road trip we made a stop on the way home in Colorado Springs. This town holds a significance in my family because it is where my mom spent part of her childhood while my grandfather was attending the Nazarene Bible College. It is also my reference for Colorado because it's where … Continue reading Colorado Springs and the Stormy Garden of the Gods
On our recent road trip we got to spend 5 days in the Rocky Mountains. We stayed at the Moraine Campground in the Rocky Mountain National Park, which is in the Estes Park area, at 8,160 feet. Of all the places we have been, this campground is at the top of the list of places … Continue reading Colorado Rocky Mountain 8,160 Feet High
We are still on our 17 day road trip but I have gotten very behind on posts after a week of being so remote, I had no cell coverage or internet. Before heading down to that spot, we had a short trip through Wyoming and of course, tried to see as much as possible in … Continue reading Short Adventures in Wyoming……..And More Storms
We recently stayed for four days in the Black Hills area of South Dakota and while I thought that would allow plenty of time to see and explore, alas, as always, it wasn't nearly enough.

To be honest, I almost skipped it but I'm glad I didn't because it was amazing enough that it deserves it's … Continue reading Harold Warp’s Pioneer Village
I started my big 17 day road trip a couple days ago and overall, it's been a much better experience than last year. Well, 95%, but that 5% is story for later in the post. The first day was 9 hours of driving across Texas, so not much to write about, but after that I … Continue reading There’s No Place Like Home……There’s No Place Home…….My Kansas Experiences and Why Dorothy Should Have Stayed In Oz.
I am finishing up my final preparations to start 17 days on the road tomorrow. It will be my lonest trip in the teardrop, my longest trip as an adult and the lonest period of time as an adult that I won't be working. That last part is what is actually stressing me out the … Continue reading Journey to 17 Days On The Road
In March 2019 I attended my first Rally with the Southwest Vintage and Teardrop group at Tyler State Park. It was the 5th annual gathering for the group, but my first time to attend a gathering.

In March Bella and I made a short weekend trip to Fredericksburg, Texas to check out some of Texas Wine Country's dog friendly wineries. It ended up being considerably cooler than I anticipated, but we still made the most of the time there. We found quite a few great places to visit that allow dogs. … Continue reading Fredericksburg and Texas Wine Country March 2019
