Lee and her curious cat crisscross the country in a RV, living simply and sustainably.

August 25th is the Centennial Celebration of the National Park Service. After watching Ken Burns PBS Special on the National Parks a few years ago, I knew that visiting as many parks as possible would be a priority on my RVing adventure. Working and living in Yellowstone National Park for 6 months this year is a dream come true. Read the rest of this entry »

Note from Lee: It has been such a blast to live and workamp in Yellowstone National Park for the past 3 months that I am way behind on my blog posts, so Miss Georgia has written this one…

It was my 1st birthday this week and Momma gave me extra treats and playtime, and even wild-caught salmon for dinner! Yes, I’m wild but no, I didn’t catch it. I did catch my first field mouse in the tall grass near the RV. I was so excited that I kept batting it with my paw until it hid under a board.

Lots of two-legged and four-legged are our friends here at our Yellowstone Read the rest of this entry »

One year ago I traded in my house in Georgia for a new 29’ pull-along trailer. My bright red Honda Fit was upsized to a bright red, gently used Chevy Silverado. One of my jobs came along with me as I continue to do online communications for a marketing company a few hours a week. Read the rest of this entry »

While I’ve long volunteered on various boards, environmental cleanup crews, and local libraries; enjoying the satisfaction that comes with giving back or paying it forward; this was my first time volunteering for an independent living center. That it was a workcamping situation, trading for 3 meals a day and a full hook-up site (less electric bill) made it an extra good deal. And that Excapees CARE Center benefits fellow RVers in an independent living setting made it priceless! Read the rest of this entry »

Rainbows End is home to the original Escapees RV Club established in 1978, brainchild of Kay and the late Joe Peterson. Located in Livingston, TX (pop. 5,335), an easy drive from the cities of Houston and Austin. This is the first RV park I’ve been to that earned top marks from me in every category! Escapees RV Club offers much more than your typical campground, though. Read the rest of this entry »

A birder since 2007 and full-time RVer, I was thrilled to find a short-term workcamping job listed on the Escapees job board for the World Birding Center at Roma Bluffs, TX. There are nine World Birding Centers located in the lower Rio Grande Valley: Read the rest of this entry »

In January I broke a molar and went to a dental clinic in East Texas near where I was parked, fully intending to have the tooth pulled. Instead, the dentist talked me into saving the tooth and putting in a crown. After 6 shots of Novocain, the temporary crown was installed and I was scheduled to return in a month for the permanent crown. Budget shot but tooth saved, I looked online for workcamping jobs in the area and was thrilled to be hired for a short-term assignment at Roma Bluffs World of Birding Center in Roma Bluffs, TX.
