This little area reminded us of the quaint little villages in Ohio, where crafters hand make their goods for resale. Old Town Spring took us back in time and introduced us to what southern Texas merchants have to offer. In the 1700's, the Old Town Spring area was first occupied by a tribe known as Orcoquisac Indians who depended on fishing and hunting - this area was perfect for both.

Um, iFly was AMAZING!!! Where can you 'free-fly' without a plane to get you there and a parachute to help you return? Oh not to mention the time it takes to get sky-diving certified, fly up on a plane to the perfect altitude...yada, yada, yada....you see what I'm saying.

NOLA New Orleans – a city rich in history and intoxicating culture, no wonder we didn’t want to leave you! It’s beautifully obvious that the French founded and settled New Orleans – the French attitude stays true in the heart of the city’s culture, which was the framework NOLA built it’s own traditions. While in Louisiana, we stayed at Fontainebleau State Park. We had no idea the history that surrounded us as we rolled our RV through the moss-adorned trees. NOTE: You know tho
We've been on the road for a total of 56 days. The United States of US RV departed Ohio on November 21, 2016, our lives have not been the same since. The roads we've travelled, the rivers we've crossed and the people we've met, have changed us for the better. .
