Before we headed out into the wild blue yonder, we needed to catch up with a few folks out in Texas. First was Herb and Jan (Lindsey's mom and dad). They are fellow travelers and adventurers, but were on a short hiatus at Holiday World in Katy, TX getting their rig worked on. We hung out with them in the RV and watched a DVD about Glacier National Park that night, Jan's favorite place on earth! ...

Water, water everywhere!

A travel blog entry by txherrins on Sep 05, 2013

Suitcases are packed for our adventure, house is in order, cat is set to be tended...but there are last minute chores and items scheduled for the day prior to leaving.
