On The Road Again

We left Hondo, Tx. yesterday in the truck camper on a seven month trip that will take us across the U.S. to Alaska. We have modified the camper in much the same way as we have the trailer by adding surge protectors, water filters, a solar system, special catalytic heater, cell antennas and booster, a macerator waste removal system and many lesser modifications. These things allow us to stay in remote areas almost anywhere for several weeks at a time if we choose to. We often stay in National Parks, Forest Service camps, and various types of public lands where there are few services but the scenery and wildlife are exceptional. We headed for a small beach on the Texas coast where we have camped in the past.

The ride was uneventful, with spring-like weather and wildflowers blooming along the roads. With the camper parked on the ocean sand, we fell asleep to the sound of the waves only fifty feet away.
