Back at Landa

We are planners. We like to know where we're going and when. Where we are parking for the night...what we're having for supper...where the nearest Starbucks is. You know, the important stuff. :) I know that seems kind of contrary to the traveling "gypsy" lifestyle, but that's just how we roll. We are working on not being so "planny" and should probably enroll ourselves in Technomadia's Serendipity Challenge. It does feel good to be a little footloose and fancy free...and we have actually been known to throw our plans out the window once or twice. This was one such occasion.

After we left Hill Shade, we headed to Austin...and we were going to stay at Lonestar through the weekend. But, our friends were back in New Braunfels and our hearts said..."GO BE WITH YOUR FRIENDS!". We're so glad we listened. :) We packed up, headed south, and pulled into Landa RV Park and surprised Damien and Michelle and Kevin and Angie. Weeeee!

We hooped.

We ate...a lot. Potluck. Out for Mexican. Pancake breakfast. Yum. Eating together is always WAY more fun.

We spent some time in the park meeting some online friends in person.

And we said goodbye "for now". We always know there will be a next time. That's why we love this life so much...see you down the road friends!

Just found this courtesy of an unschooler in FL who's considering hitting the road. It looks to be right up your street! I do not advocate buying an iPhone or iPad, but if you already have one, you can get the app. If you have neither, you can get it in eBook format when it comes out. Pass it on!

Your family is very inspiring :) I'm so happy I came across your blog - and you're not too far from us either! If you get the chance, I highly recommend you visit to Arbor Day Farm in Nebraka City if you haven't all ready. Looking forward to reading more of your adventures!

Hi Sara, I have been a reader of your blog now for the past month and have read through and see the amazing pictures of your renovations you all did to your RVs. We are more than ready to rip off our wallpaper in our RV and paint. BUT we have a question and can't seem to find the answer anywhere. Perhaps you can help. When we take off the wallpaper the wallboard is sticky. Do we just paint a primer over the sticky walls or do we need to get the sticky off? Can you please please help us with this or guide us to step by step instructions to this project?
Thank you! We think your life plans are awesome and we have talked of going fulltime for a few years now. Our drawbacks are finances and making money on the road.

Longchamp French brand as an authentic, how to understand the French descent and France? The brand is deeply rooted in French culture.

Friends, to tell you longchamp sale in many countries are great. Best-selling, of course, longchamp Le pliage series. If you like, please pay attention to the brand.
