Mission 009 - Tallulah Gorge State Park

Our newest YouTube video is up and running! After climbing out of Tallulah Gorge, we felt the urge to shout "DELIVERANCE!" to the Heavens, as we then totally understood how Burt Reynolds and Jon Voight felt at the end of that movie! Well, maybe we exaggerate a little... Take a look at our visit to Tallulah Gorge State Park in the Georgia mountains, where we foolishly jumped into the infamous "Gorge Trail Hike." Rushing waters, jagged boulders and broken toes all conspired to wear us down, but we conquered the trail and lived to tell the tale!

Surprise! We've Got a New Tow Vehicle!!!


Words of Wisdom - be careful when you “window shop” on the internet!  A little harmless browsing one evening leads us to make a sooner-than-expected return trip to Florida, where our new tow vehicle was waiting for us!  Take a look as we drive a long way and back home in a single day, while signing up for a very-large financial commitment in the process!  Whoa, Nellie, but this is a big truck!!! (Well, it is to us, anyway…)

See how it happened over on the YouTube channel!

Mission 008 - Calhoun Falls State Park

Another camping trip, another rainy weekend… but, what? You think we’d stay home? Nope! Calhoun Falls State Park is a lovely, secluded park on the shores of Lake Russell, where (in dryer weather) fishing and boating are the activities of choice. Despite the rain, we’ll show you both campgrounds in the park, as well as the almost-two-mile hiking trail and the very-friendly “wildlife” that may visit your camper!

Take a look at our latest entry over on the YouTube channel!

The "Falcon" Gets it's First Bath! (and other mundane chores...)

"If you wanna have the fun, you've gotta put in the work!" So said a Wise Old Man, once upon a time, and it's very, very true when it comes to RV ownership. In this video, we run up to "Docking Bay 94" to give the Aluminum Falcon his first real bath, specifically cleaning and treating the roof, along with some other little fix-it projects. Oh, and we finally fly that darn drone a little, too...

Campground Review - Ocean Grove RV Resort, St. Augustine, FL

Our "epic" adventure to St. Augustine finally comes to an end.  Ocean Grove RV Resort was our "home base" during our week-long stay there, and we could not have been more pleased with it! In our newest video, we show you the whole place, including our campsite, the poolside bar, the "turtle pond" and the lovely marshland views at the back of the resort. See our review!

Mission 007 (Part 4) - St. Augustine continues with the World Golf Hall of Fame!


New Video Day! Our Spring Break “mission” to St. Augustine continues with a visit to the World Golf Hall of Fame and lunch at the Caddyshack restaurant.  Located inside the mixed commercial/residential community known as World Golf Village, the Hall of Fame honors the history of the sport and the accomplishments of the greatest men and women to ever play it.  As they say, “if you love golf, you’ve got to go!” 

Head over to the YouTube channel and see how it went!

Mission 007 (Part 3) - Pirates & Castles... and Ice Cream!

Our Spring Break week in St. Augustine continued with a day in the heart of Historic Downtown.  We spent this particular morning going through the Pirate & Treasure Museum, a subject near and dear to Jessie's heart, being that she's from North Carolina (also known as "pirate country" back in the 1700s).  After lunch, we toured Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, learning about the fort's unique history and taking in the lovely views of Matanzas Bay.

Of course, we recorded large parts of our day, as well as our discovery of Mayday Ice Cream, for video-posterity!  Take a look at our latest entry over on the YouTube channel!
