Rambling Rivers & Twisting Trails

January 29, 2019 (by Angela) Over the last few years, we’ve become fans of Florida’s state parks. If you look at posts from February (or maybe even early March) 2017, you’ll see how much Jim, Chewie, and I enjoyed our day-visits to several of the Florida parks; however, it was not until this month that…

WOW! Our Pictures Don’t Do It Justice

March 2, 2017 (by Angela) Ichetucknee Springs State Park was our last outing while in Florida in February. Jim had previously visited the nearby campground, which he writes about here, but he’d not hiked in the park.

Cedar Key

February 28, 2017 (by Angela) Cedar Key…..Cedar Key! I don’t know how many times I have watched vlogs or read blogs singing the praises of Cedar Key, Florida.

Manatees vs Birds

February 26, 2017 (by Angela) Manatee Springs State Park sounded like an amazing place to visit. The three of us loaded up in the car and plotted our course for this well-known Florida State Park. Hoping, really hoping, to see at least one manatee, we paid our $6 admission, but the gentleman taking our money…

Fresh Food and a Home for Retired Horses

February 18, 2017 Last weekend, Jim was sick, so we were in the RV all weekend long. By Monday, he was feeling better, and we were in need of a major shopping trip. Walmart is the only grocery within 30 minutes of our current campground to obtain organic items, so we spent a good portion of the the…

Bucket List Check: St. Augustine

February 10, 2017 (by Angela) When traveling for fun, deciding where we’ll go must always be a consensus of minds for harmony to prevail. Upon leaving Arkansas, we agreed to make our first stop in Texarkana, Texas. It was not certain which direction we would go until we had to decide whether we would drive east…

24 Hours to Siteless

January 30, 2017 (by Angela) As we’ve said more than once in this blog, “If you want to hear God laugh, tell Him what you plan.” There’s planning and there’s “planning.” Once Jim and I knew when we could actually leave Arkansas, we developed a plan. Unlike our travels to Vermont this past summer, where…
