About Us

Chris and Dennis are traveling around the country seeing the sights and occasionally volunteering at select locations. We avoid the interstate as much as we can and tend to stop for squirrels and shiny objects.

Adieu Lakehills

The title reflects what little french I know and is there to honor the nice couple we met in a Walmart parking lot yesterday. They were in a smaller class C motorhome and were able to snag one of the few parking slots remaining.  I think they were sympathizing with us at not being able to fit if the nods, smiles and waves were any indication. Of course it could have also been the french version of  "better you than me".

The Thousand Trails park at Medina lake was more like a wild game park with the deer, rabbits, and birds - including turkeys. While they are accustomed to people and rigs moving about, they are definitely not  tame and will move off if approached. 

We've really enjoyed it here and figure this can be a very nice place to spend the winter.

This sunseet shot became the newest desktop picture.

We are westbound. After three weeks in Lakehills we've pretty much finalized the places we'll camp host in 2016. That leaves us with roughly 6 months for grandkid spoiling, maintenance on the motorhome and just plain acting like the tourist. This last bit we figure we'll learn how to do in about 20 years or so.
The current plan is, as I mentioned, westbound with a big of north thrown in as we very slowly make our way back up to the Pacific Northwest. Yesterday we made it west to Fort Stockton after a typical Texas breezy day where we bucked a headwind that pushed all over the road. 

We lost out on our initial plan of staying in the Walmart parking lot as it was full and our backup plan at the Flying J truck stop also fell through with no parking available. All was not lost though, we found a space in an RV park that caters to oil field workers.

Today we'll travel almost due north to hunt for UFOs in Roswell and then continuee on to our weekend destination in Alamogordo and the White Sands National Monument.
