Our Latest Video
One of our favorite things about RVing are the awesome people that we meet, but it doesn't just happen when we RV. We met the Findeisen Family a while back at the Fulshear Farmers Market. They took an interesting route to becoming organic, sustainable farmers and we thought you might be interested in their story. You can read more about them on our website.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Do you know why we celebrate Cinco de Mayo?  You might be surprised to find out that it all started with a man born at Presidio La Bahia in Goliad, Texas! Read the story of General Ignacio Zaragoza.

Who We Are Following...
Traveling Robert
We don't think he's been to Texas yet, but Robert Morales (aka Traveling Robert) has a goal of visiting the Lower 48 states by the time he's 48.  Robert does a fantastic job of sharing his travels in South Florida (and sometimes beyond) on his YouTube channel and now via his new podcast, "Living the RV Dream with Traveling Robert". 

Robert and his wife travel in a Winnebago Micro Minnie travel trailer that they named "Minitini".  As you watch the video above, pay special attention to the back of "Minitini" and you'll spot an RV Texas Y'all sticker all the way down in South Florida!  Thanks Robert!  For more information about Traveling Robert, check out his website:
Until Next Time!
Thanks for joining us!
