Our First Blog Attempt

This is our first attempt at writing a blog.  We’re not sure what the difference is between a blog and facebook….but here goes.

As most of you know we’ve been on the road traveling since March 13th.  We started the journey driving to Oklahoma to get some work done on our new Mobile Suites 5th wheel.  Things went well so we moved on to Oklahoma City to visit with CJ.  After a few days visiting we moved on to the DFW area and visited with Jeremy and Rachelle.

We had a great time with them….but had to move back to the service center for another round of fixes on the 5th wheel.  Since we were back in Oklahoma we visited with CJ again.  He’s really busy studying so we didn’t get as much time with him as we would have liked, but it was fun anyway.

Randy and Meg have been on the road for just short of a year and we really wanted to spend some time with them so we moved on to Arizona….what a great time!  It was really nice to see them again and we’re looking forward to spending more time while on the road.

We stayed a week in Benson and while there were blessed to meet Pastor Tom’s mom and dad.  They are some of the most wonderful people we’ve had the pleasure to meet – we’ll be back to spend more time with them on their ranch.

While in Arizona we started discussing moving to a “full time RV” lifestyle and planned to travel to Casa Grande and Wickenburg but came across an RV lot for sale in an RV 55+ community in south Texas, so we packed up and hit the road towards the border to see if it was something we’d be interested in.  We’re currently staying here in Retama Village at one of their “stay and play” lots.

It’s a very nice community and we’ve met a lot of really great people.  For those who don’t know south Texas (we didn’t), it’s an area south of San Antonio that Texans call “the valley”.  It sits in the Rio Grande valley and the community is actually listed in the town of Mission, but also includes the cities of Pharr and McAllen.  We arrived at the start of their “off season” but we’re really enjoying the weather, foliage and new friends.  The latitude is about the same as the lower Baja Peninsula to the west and just north of Miami to the east.  We were reminded of our Mexican trip many years ago with the climate, birds and foliage and woke to discover an awesome sunrise this morning…..isn’t God amazing?!?
We will continue to document our travels for those who want to follow but more for us….so we can continually enjoy the memories and wonderful new friends that we meet along the way.
