It's me, RDB and our Diesel-dog out exploring the world - or at least, the world of Southern Texas. We started our adventures in a pop-up camper and recently up-graded to a travel trailer named Honey. Camping, geocaching, mountain biking, and always looking for the next great adventure!

Are We There Yet...?
Setting up camp for the first time. Those chairs? Worth. Every. Penny.
Forgive the title - had to get it out of my system.
RDB was determined that we'd get the truck in time to go out for our first trip - for my 30th Birthday weekend. And it was touch and go for a bit: transfering a truck in from CA, a lost title, finding another Ranger, me being out of town, me being in the emergency room, BB driving up with the loan docs, dealing with the sales-dorks. It was a mess. But, we had the camper, we (finally) got the truck, and we were going camping!
RDB did a great job of keeping the location a secret - this was my birthday gift. Though, he did let the cat out of the bag that we were camping with The 5J's and D&G+2. It was a great first trip - lots of fun with the kiddos, about 4 trips to the Wal*Mart, and no one got hurt or lost! (That's success when you're camping with 5 kids under 5!)
We were in spots 37 and 38 at the Double Lake Rec Area. Great for group camping (the two sites share a pad), very close to the bath house, and only about a 2 hour drive from home.
I can't wait to go out with the group again. And I can't wait to go out just me and RDB!
