Obligatory Monument photo

We walked the Mall. And a bunch of other places too.

Recently, we visited rural Virginia and some of Marc’s family, and also took a weekend to go into Washington DC to see our niece. We had such a great time in DC with Autumn and her beau, Dave. We walked a lot and ate a lot! We rode the Metro into DC, after driving more […]

Sea turtles stole my heart

I fell in love with sea turtles. I’ve never actually touched one, but when we visited the Sea Turtle, Inc nonprofit organization on South Padre Island, I couldn’t resist their cuteness! It was the one place on SPI that I really wanted to visit while we were staying in Harlingen for the winter of 2018-2019. […]

Entry to Tropic Winds RV Park

A 55+ park – is it for you?

We have been spending the winter months (Dec, Jan, Feb) in South Texas, home of Winter Texans. Yes, this is a thing. People come from all the northern states and Canada to the southern tip of the big state to hang out in warmer weather for the winter. Having never been here, we didn’t quite […]

The Car Show in McAllen

Last weekend, we decided to drive up to McAllen (about 40 miles away) to see what was happening in the big city. McAllen is probably the largest city in the Rio Grande Valley area of South Texas, and has more infrastructure than most of the other smaller cities. There was an advertised Car Show happening, with more […]

Monday on Tuesday

So…… You are awakened early to a server gone bonkers over a scheduled backup that failed to delete the old files, overflowing the drive, which takes down 80 websites. An hour after you get that resolved, a typo in a firewall update takes down another server’s access to remote data, taking down over 100 sites […]

Not only do we live in an RV, we work there fulltime, too

We are some of those ‘working RVers’ who have chosen to travel and work, and created a business and lifestyle that can support that.  However, we aren’t the typical young millennials that are seen in most interviews, blogs, and TV specials. We are in our 50’s/60’s and have owned our own business for 13 years. […]

Our home for the past two years.

How blue painter’s tape helped us move into an RV

We decided about five years ago to start plans to make ourselves “location independent,” by purchasing an RV to live in and travel. We still needed to work, but with the business we own we knew we could be mobile and still serve our clients. We spent three years preparing for our adventure, including nightly […]

July Journal: It’s so hot!!!

We’ve been in Grand Junction Colorado for the past six weeks and it has been so incredibly hot!! Like 100+ degrees day after day after day. So, how do you deal with heat when you are living in a motorhome? Let me clarify: how do you deal with the heat when you are working all […]

Victoria Texas, the Crossroads

Ringing in 2018 in the crossroads of Texas

We migrated to south-central Texas the second week of January, landing in Victoria Texas. This medium-sized community is dubbed the “crossroads” for the coastal bend area of Texas. It is centered between Houston and San Antonio and about 30 minutes from the Port Lavaca, on the Gulf Coast. This is a working town. No real […]

Goliad Texas: history, shopping and beer

While we are in Victoria Texas for January, we took a Saturday and went full-on tourist, to a place we had read about last winter but didn’t have the time to visit. Goliad, Texas is the home of the not-as-famous Texas battle for Independence . The original cry of Texicans fighting for independence was “Remember […]

January Journal: Ugh – the dreaded flu hit us

About a week after we arrived, we both came down with the winter, nasty flu. I actually tested positive and Marc did not, but they treated both of us with Tami-flu and antibiotics, as well as some cough suppressant. For almost 2 weeks, we did pretty much nothing more than the absolute minimum of work, […]
