Campground Reviews – Pecan Haven RV Campground; Caldwell, TX

Campground Review - TX - Pecan Haven RV Campground-Caldwell

We needed to be in the Bryan-College Station area for 3 weeks for business and were grateful to find this campground.  Most campgrounds in the vicinity are geared for Texas A&M tailgaters and are basically just parking lots with hook ups — which is fine if you’re having a tailgate party and just in town for a night or two.  However, with staying for three weeks, we were looking for a place that was more cozy.

Campground Reviews – Ole Towne Cotton Gin; Quanah, TX

Campground Review - TX - Ole Towne Cotton Gin-Quanah

This was a great little campground.  It’s an independent campground located between Wichita Falls and Amarillo.  It’s set on the site of an old historic cotton gin with much of the building and equipment restored and on display.  We stayed here for just a couple of days on our way to NomadFEST.   The best thing about this campground is it’s where we met new friends who were also going to NomadFEST — Phil and Stacy Farley of You, Me and the RV; and Chris and Donna Clark of Runaway with the Clarks.

Campground Reviews – Thousand Trails Bay Landing; Bridgeport, TX

Campground Review - TX - Thousand Trails Bay Landing-Bridgeport

This being our third Thousand Trails campground, we’re definitely feeling comfortable and settling in to the routine of Thousand Trails campsites.  Bay Landing Campground is situated about midway between Dallas and Wichita Falls.  While the entrance to the park is right on US-380 and adjacent to the municipal airport, the sites are all grouped around a cove of Lake Bridgeport at least four miles down a partially paved road.   This separation creates a good amount of buffer from road noise, and the airplane noise is minimal and not very frequent.

Campground Reviews – Thousand Trails Lake Texoma; Gordonsville, TX

Campground Review - TX - Thousand Trails Lake Texoma-Gordonsville

This was our first campground stay in the state of Texas 🙂 and our second Thousand Trails stay.  Lake Texoma is actually a widening of the Red River and, as the name suggests, is on the border between Texas and Oklahoma directly between Dallas and Oklahoma City.  The campground is situated on the south side of the lake, and you can access the lake directly from the campground.  We had a good time exploring around the shore of the lake on some of the moderately rough unpaved roads in the Jeep.

YT - Postcard NH Coast

In early October we were in New Hampshire for business and had an opportunity to spend the day exploring the New Hampshire seacoast.  The state’s seacoast area stretches 18 miles from the charming city of Portsmouth to just below the hamlet of Hampton Beach.  We were treated to amazing views of the rocky coastline all along U.S. route 1A also known as Ocean Boulevard.

RV Life – Becoming Nomads

We love travel, exploring new places, and meeting new people so much we dismantled the life we had built to forge a new life of wandering, creating, and discovering.  What caused us to make such a huge transformation?  For us it was a combination of factors that came together in a perfect storm that swept away our blinders and allowed us to see a new future.

Field Notes – Things to do in Bowling Green, KY

We were in Bowling Green, KY, for a few days in the middle of September and enjoyed our stay.  Bowling Green is the third-largest city in Kentucky (after Louisville and Lexington) and is located in the south central part of the state about an hour north of Nashville, TN.  The town was established in 1798 by pioneer settlers from Virginia and became a steamboat and railroad hub through the 1800’s and 1900’s. Today the city boasts a healthy economy with several industries calling Bowling Green home, including Fruit of the Loom, International Paper, and, of course, the General Motors Corvette assembly plant.  There are several enjoyable attractions in Bowling Green that we explored and definitely recommend if you’re in the area.
