⛺ Camping

Camping Adventures ⛺

Camping is something I really enjoy doing and I do it as often as I can.  I would MUCH rather be out in a park or campground than almost any place outside of my yard.  When I can combine it with my scavenger hunts or great honky tonks, that's just a bonus! I like camping in groups with friends. Check out my Outdoor Fun playlist on YouTube. The video below will show the most recent one. 

I am also a host on Boondockers Welcome in Central Texas and I have hosted campers from Texas and beyond. I have room for one rig and a tow vehicle and offer 30 amp and water hookups. It's a nice way to meet people and their rigs. I'm signed on as a guest, but I haven't gotten to try out a site yet. So far, it's been a great experience and if you have the capabilities, be sure to try it out. You never know who you will meet. Boondockers Welcome has joined into Harvest Hosts.

My first RV was a 1989 Jayco pop-up that I got in 2010. Yes, it was older than my son! We put some miles on those tires in the 4 years that I had it and had some good adventures together in that camper. That was back when he enjoyed geocaching and camping with me. 

I am a part-timer and as of September 2019, I had a small Starcraft travel trailer with a little slide. Meet Matilda Mae. She was easily towable with my 1/2 ton Chevy so we were good to go at most times. I started off with a Chevy Colorado, but that was another upgrade. I lost my 4-legged camping buddy in January 2021 at the ripe age of 15. She went camping in the popup and Matilda. 

In July 2024, after the chemo and surgery, I upgraded to a 2022 Keystone Passport 229RK SL. I had some issues with her and it took a few trips to the dealership to get most of it straightened out. Therefore, her name has been Miss Priss. She has a dinette, theater seats, a large slide and huge awning. She's a couple feet longer than Matilda, but the layout is nicer and has a deeper slide. She also has a lighter interior and lots of big windows - AND - a larger shower!

When I get ready to retire...who knows what the next upgrade will be? I made sure my RV Carport was tall enough to accommodate a bigger rig. 

I whole-heartedly agree with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's slogan. "Life's Better Outside".
