November 2017 – Catching Up


First, the sad news.  We are now officially dog-less.  Our last furry friend, Tuff, is no more.  He died in August during our most recent travels.  He’s buried on the side of a mountain near Leadville, CO.  It was the low point of the summer.  Tuff wasn’t an average dog and he didn’t win points for congeniality.  He was, however, brimming…

July 12th, 2017 – Truck Campers and Toads


There’ve been a few hot days that had the sweat running down our backs.  Overall, this summer has been pleasant.  The land is holding onto a lot of green due to the rain that has fallen on it.  Today was another not too hot day.  We made good progress on the interior of the truck camper.  I think it’s looking…

Latest Update: July 3, 2017


The weather here in central Texas:  my expectation is that by July both days and nights get HOT.  However, it hasn’t been bad.  We’ve been experiencing quite a bit of cool weather, cloudy days, and rain.  Mornings and evenings have been a wonderful time to get work done on our truck camper. Dave’s birthday was June 29.  He’s now officially…

Fortunately, the rain has let off and now we’ve been marking things off the camper TO DO…

40+ Year Old Red Dale Truck Camper


On April 15th we took possession of an early 70s model (our best guess) Red Dale truck camper.  I had been researching truck campers and browsing craigslist for some time.  While doing so I learned truck campers were kind of scarce in Texas.  But there was an abundance of them for sale in other states.  Dave and I figured we’d end…

Spring 2017 – An Update

Homesteading – Collection of Pictures From Our Little Farm


The photos in this post are all a blast from the past. These days there isn’t nearly as much homesteading type activity happening at our place.   In 2015 we sold all the animals and now we tend to keep the garden small.  We’ve made these changes in order to focus on traveling.  But in 2009 when we moved to…
