Feb 9, 2013 - What's Been Going On?

From Advanced RV Resort – Pearland/Houston, TX Time has really gone by fast since being back here in the Houston area and we will already be leaving in less than 10 days! During this fly by time we have really not done any one adventure that warranted a journal post of its own so will give you a brief synopsis of what has transpired since our last post the middle of January. We have enjoyed a birthday celebration for our daughter at a quaint little Italian restaurant in the heart of one of Houston’s many unique villages and areas……Nino’s in...

Jan 14, 2013 - Cold & Wet In Texas

From Advanced RV Resort – Pearland/Houston, TX Quickly approaching a month since returning to our “home base” park in Pearland. Since last posting in the journal we have absolutely enjoyed just living that “retired life”, visiting with our kids and being back with friends we have met here at this park. We are just about finished with our annual checkups and the list of “…ologists” is being narrowed down quickly. So far we have been checked out by oncologist, dermatologist, ophthalmologist, gastroenterologist and add to those dentist,...

Jan 1, 2013 - Happy New Year To One & All!

From Advanced RV Resort – Pearland/Houston, TX On the heels of five years of traveling in this lifestyle we have amassed a total of 121,793 total miles; 30,726 of these towing our home, all the while posting 537 journal entries that have contained 11,154 photos. Looking back on these numbers, we have come to a decision beginning our 2013 travels that the “on vacation” mentality so often encountered during our past travels needs to disappear going forward. During last year’s travels we made an honest attempt to slow down our overwhelming...

Dec 31, 2012 - 2012 Comes To An End - Our 5th Year On The Road

From Advanced RV Resort – Pearland/Houston, TX As 2012 comes to an end we are taking a moment to reflect on this our 5th year of travel and retirement. The biggest difference in this year compared to the prior four years is that NEW/FIRST TIME states and places nowhere matched our earlier travels. The first four years saw us add 26 states to our U.S. travel map whereas in 2012 only ONE new state was added to the map…………………..Pennsylvania! Even with the minimal new state addition to our map we did explore several new areas of prior visited...

Dec 25, 2012 - Christmas Time In Texas

From Advanced RV Resort – Pearland/Houston, TX Since last report we have enjoyed a wonderful holiday celebration with family. To begin our visiting with family and friends, we picked up April after she got off work Thursday and headed to Lance and Amy’s home where we planned to go out and have dinner at Logan’s. This was our first visit with the kids since our return earlier in the week and afforded us a chance to see Judy, Amy’s mom whom we had not seen in some time. The true “Christmas” celebration began on Sunday December 23rd when our...

Dec 19, 2012 - Arrived Back In Texas!

From Advanced RV Resort – Houston/Pearland, TX BACK IN TEXAS! We traveled 214 miles Tuesday in beautiful weather reaching our “home base” park as we call it just a few minutes after 12 noon. We will be here for a two month stay in which we will have the opportunity to spend the holidays with our children as well as a good visit after the New Year begins. This time we elected to get a pull thru site for our stay here which gives us added length to be able to park the truck and it not be in such close quarters with our entry door as has been...

May 7, 2012 - Update Time

From Advanced RV Resort – Houston/Pearland, TX Cannot believe it has been almost a month since last I posted to the journal…………time just seems to fly by. As you can see from the “where are we” introduction line to this post, we have returned to our so called home base park and have not traveled or found any new attractions to share with you other than the recent Hill Country rally. As I posted earlier, my step dad had some health issues but am glad to report that after a long hospital stay he is back home and improving daily………thanks to...

Apr 3, 2012 - Just An Update

From Advanced RV Resort – Houston/Pearland, TX Since we last posted on the journal we have returned to our so called “home base park” in Pearland and have gone to some follow up appointments generated by our December stay in the area. Glad to report all had good outcomes. Nothing else much has occurred since arriving here and as a result……No Posts! However we will be heading for a HitchHiker Hill Country Rally later this week and that should result in some interesting posting material. Seems so far this year our travel itinerary has been...

Dec 26, 2011 - Nearing The End Of Another Wonderful Year

From Advanced RV Resort – Houston/Pearland, TX It’s that time to reflect back on the year coming to a close and to take a moment to recollect where we traveled and what we discovered and experienced in 2011. It is true that this year saw us create and follow the most exacting itinerary since beginning this lifestyle. Looking back not sure if we would plan and follow this strict of an itinerary again! The “Great River Road” trip was the highlight of 2011. Our river journey began April 3 where this mighty river whose legend is the basis of...

Nov 28, 2011 - Back To Our "Home Base" Park

From Advanced RV Resort – Houston/Pearland, TX TWO WEEKS since our last post to the journal……….we are now settled into what we call our “Home Base” Park! This is the park we elect to stay in when we return to the Houston area for any reason now as it is centrally located to our children, friends and medical facilities. So, no photos are being attached to this post as we have shown off the park during prior stays. We will be here until the 28th of December visiting with family and friends as well as taking care of our annual medical exams....

Jun 13, 2010 - Inspiration for Sylvan Beach

Yesterday when I went to race headquarters to pick up my race packet the winds were howling at 20 knots from the SE and the wave set through the race course could just as easily have been home for the 2010 World Surfing Championships. My enthusiasm was immediately dampened but I was committed and I was not going to let the weather conditions ruin a good night's sleep. The 430AM alarm went off to some NPR monotone reporter talking about the Gulf of Mexico and the encroaching oil that is heading west to Texas. Real nice wake up call for a guy...
