RV Recipe: Amish Haystacks

RV Recipe: Amish Haystacks
With the Heartland RV North American Rally quickly approaching I wanted to share a recipe for Amish Haystacks. We were served this dish in 2015 when we had dinner at an Amish home during the pre-rally festivities.It's much like a taco salad with a few twists that make it unique.It's a great dish to prepare for a crowd or for a 'bring an ingredient'...

RV Destination: Door County, Wisconsin

RV Destination: Door County, Wisconsin
Many years ago, Michael and I went on a weekend getaway to Door County, Wisconsin and fell in love with the area. Michael likes to call Door County as the 'thumb' of Wisconsin and I guess that's a good way to describe it. Look at a map of Wisconsin and you'll understand what he's talking about. On your way to Door County you may pass by Green Bay ...

RV Travels Can Take You Where the Wild Things Are

RV Travels Can Take You Where the Wild Things Are
~ a post in honor of World Wildlife Day, March 3 ~Although we've encountered lots of creatures while RV'ing around the country in our Heartland 5th wheel, the only Bighorn we've seen in the wild is the one we live in. Notoriously shy, those sheep!Most animals were outside the RV, living unperturbed in the environments where they belong — at least u...

How will we meet people and forge friendships?Being we are both fairly outgoing, we kind of le...

Houston RV Show Vs. Austin RV Expo

Houston RV Show Vs. Austin RV Expo
Sometimes, life has a way of helping us make an easy decision.While we were parked in San Antonio for our biannual visit last month, there were two popular RV shows going on in Texas, but unlike last year when we were able to attend each one, both the Houston RV Show and the Austin RV Expo were scheduled for the same weekend in 2017.The former: 200...

Pearsall, Texas: Home of the World's Largest Peanut
For over a year I've driven by a statue of a large peanut when I've gone into town to get groceries at the local HEB and I finally decided to stop and check it out.The monument boasts 'World's Largest Peanut'…whether that's the truth or not, it's a neat little 'off the beaten track' stop located at the corner of FM 140 and Louise Street in Pearsall...

When we sold our Kentucky home, we had to pare down to living in a 42' 5th wheel with limited galley kitchen cabinet storage and counter space.The things I miss most are my KitchenAid mixer, m...

2nd Generation Heartland Owners: Like Father, Like Son

2nd Generation Heartland Owners:  Like Father, Like Son
​When our sons were young we camped in a tent and then moved up to a used pop-up and a few years later purchased a brand new pop up. Sometimes we camped just as a family, other times the boys brought their friends. No matter the case we always had a good time filled with lots of laughter, and we made a lot of good memories.A far back as I can ...

Looking for Adventure? Here's Two Helpful Websites

Looking for Adventure? Here's Two Helpful Websites
​I tend to be a 'planner'. We usually have a good idea of where we'll be, when we'll be there, how long we'll be there and what kinds of activities we'll participate while we're there. For some people that's too structured, as they like to 'fly by the seat of their pants'…but for us…it's perfect.When sight-seeing we tend to lean more toward th...

2PSNAPOD's Favorite National Parks & Monuments

2PSNAPOD's Favorite National Parks & Monuments
​We are BIG fans of National Parks as they represent so much of the history and beauty that our country has to offer. We purchase an America the Beautiful pass each year for $80…a small price to pay, in my opinion, to be able to visit as many parks and/or monuments as we are able. However, there are other passes for seniors, disabled and milit...
