Little House On The Prairie – A Fun Stop In Kansas

Little House On The Prairie – A Fun Stop In Kansas

Hendrix is sitting outside of a replica cabin, that was built as described by Laura Ingalls Wilder, in the Little House On The Prairie books.

Many, many times I had driven passed the turn-off, on Highway 75, to go see the Little House On The Prairie museum.  I always had an excuse as to why I would “stop and see it next time”.   As I am getting older, I am realizing, Continue reading Little House On The Prairie – A Fun Stop In Kansas

Hiking and camping have just got a LOT easier for me, because of this little stove by kampMATE.  I have been looking into getting one of these bad boys for a while now.  If you have read my post “Simplified Car Camping”, you know that I have a goal of making my work at camp as easy as possible.  You can read that post here.  When kampMATE agreed to send out the WoodFlame Ultra Lightweight Portable Wood Burning Camping Stove for testing and this review, I was just giddy!  I have been of the thinking, for a while now, why would I not be using a stove that burned wood for a heat source?  I don’t believe that I have ever hiked and/or camped anywhere that did not have twigs, branches, leaves, dead grass, etc. all over the place.  Why would I carry a stove that also required me to carry my heat source, when I could find it just lying around anywhere I am going to want to use my stove?

*Do you want one for free?!  Be sure and keep reading!  Continue reading Wood Burning Stove by kampMATE ~~~~~ Reviews by Rene’

I just changed the wording a bit.  Now it reads, “Take the dogs BACK to the ocean”.  Because of the close proximity at the time, taking the dogs to Galveston, Texas was the best option, since I would be driving.  I have been road tripping with these two “kids” from the very beginning, so a nine-hour drive is very doable for us.  The dogs did great!

When we arrived at our destination lodging Continue reading Galveston Texas With Dogs ~ Hendrix’s First Ever Ocean Visit!
