hey y'all hey guys welcome back to another wiener Wednesday yeah look at this wow what a setting right holy cow we got up here we're on a trail and we got up to this midway point on the trail and we said we need to shoot a winging it up here absolutely so this week's winging it is about things just keep getting better in this RV full-time lifestyle so stay tuned alright y'all know the rules of winging it we set the timer on my phone for 10 minutes we talked about the topic when the timer goes off we wrap things up if you're not already subscribed to our channel we invite you to do that we film videos and we publish them every Sunday and Wednesday at 10 a.m. central every wednesday being winging it wins yeah Wednesday so we hope you'll join us all right we're setting the phone to 10 minutes and it's hard to see the screen we're winging it so yeah you know guys when we when we thought about going full time in our RV a lot of it had to do with the state parks and the natural areas that we would visit when we were part time RVs well we wanted to experience life you know we wanted to get out in nature absolutely and you know when we would take a trip when we were part time that last day of the trip would come and we'd be having to say goodbye to the park or wherever we had been spending time and it was like oh man we wanted that to continue and so now it does the last few weeks we've been going from state park to state park to state park with a few more to go and well what a journey it has been here recently yeah it does keep getting better if you saw our Sunday video that we had this last Sunday it was about mooch talking at some of our friend's house and that was awesome too and it felt like we were in a state park we said and and at that point in our full time journey that was one of the neatest things we had and and I mean from there now we've just been going to a lot of state parks and it like Stacy said it just keeps getting better because look at this what we're getting to experience and this trail has just been unbelievable you'll you'll see a future video on this state park we're at Copper break State Park and this is the Juniper Ridge Trail yeah if you ever get here you absolutely if you can it's it's it's semi challenging it's not as bad as some of the trails in Garner garner or chopper we're definitely more challenging but but it still is you know up and down and a few rocks here and there but it's not too bad I mean don't don't get discouraged in thinking it's it's too challenging it's not real challenging you're not going to bring a bike on this trail but no I mean I'm sure they're people that might but I wouldn't but it is stunning I mean right now the breeze is blowing perfectly blue skies and yes as we filmed this video we're a little behind what you're seeing in our Sunday videos now was probably about a month to five to go yeah and it's always probably going to stay that way we we have to have time to edit we have to have time to edit our thoughts together and and there's other things too when we're here in the future we're going to be getting on the road going out of Texas and we're going to go into national parks and stuff and we're not going to have any service and here we have very limited yeah we I mean last Sunday's video it took us over six hours to upload a 16 minute video so and this one is going to take a while to upload probably but we make them up here to upload it because we have a lot better service up here so it may upload real quick but and like on RV you know friend Robin Williams is holding his laptop up to try to get his report to upload that's what we felt like in the last few days so we've got to get ahead on videos so we can schedule some videos hopefully when we're in those national parks and have no connectivity hopefully we'll have videos uploaded so we you know won't be late or miss a Sunday or a Wednesday right we want to stick to our schedule as much as possible yep and so but yeah well this this is what we personally had in mind there's a lot of different ways yeah RV oh yeah there's a lot of different ways to enjoy it for us this is this was a lot of our motivation this is what we had in mind this is what we envisioned when we thought about waking up in the morning what we'd be able to do yeah I mean it's been it's such a beautiful place all these we've we've been to three state parks right in a row we're gonna be going to a fourth one right after this and a fifth 106 thought and even a sex one that's right a little string yes we're gonna hit six state points in a row and and then we're gonna chore and we're gonna have our truck towards the north and and so this is how I envisioned it guys we started out in RV parks which is okay and and we enjoyed there that's a whole different type of lifestyle and we enjoy them we enjoy those as well and but it's nothing like getting out here in nature and I mean look at this were on top of this Ridge we're filming this video there's nobody around no I mean we haven't seen another person on this trail today yeah so we figured why not let's wing it okay you can't hear anything well now you can hear us but the occasional bird the occasional cricket that's what we're hearing in the breeze well we're hearing our neighbors that were next to us they're not there anymore but they left this weekend they told us when they came on this trail they got a honk or something yeah swooped over him because I guess he was protecting his nest and that write a kite yeah a kite they said I don't know I okay well that kite we need to learn more about her Birds yeah swooped over them and then some other people that came in the park said the same thing happened to them but we haven't had that experience yet yet we're halfway through the trail maybe we're not near his nest yet so we'll try to keep the camera rolling for that yeah I mean this it really is awesome guys this is this is for us what it's all about but we still like mixing in RV parks don't get me wrong I like to nice swimming Pole and and a place to wash our clothes I mean like right now the laundry is yeah we're gonna have to figure things out on that happy just shower in our clothes there you go okay and you know hey you heard it from her if I do it you heard it here Raven and chickadee say you know it's okay to dry your underwear in that in the oven so you know too bad we don't have we have a convection oven our tips video in case you missed it there all and they're probably in a state or national park somewhere absolutely and but it's it's really incredible the weather here has been awesome I mean we had one day a couple of the days that were in the upper 70s it was unbelievable yeah a few days ago so we're in where we are copper breaks State Park is at the lower northeastern or excuse me lower eastern side of the Texas Panhandle and just shy of Oklahoma and a few days ago and it is June by the way as we film this yep it it was 99 degrees real temperature where the feel like have like a hundred and two because it's dry here it's a dry heat yeah yeah you don't have the humidity like you do in Houston but that night a storm came through we really didn't get much of the storm no bit of rain and one thing of one big class the storm went north of us but the next morning it was in the 70s and it stayed 70s low 80s all day it was absolutely oh when we went from Stacie had blankets up and all of the front of the RV to try to keep the heat out from the windshield and the front windows and it actually worked a little bit but we went from that to the next day all the windows are open and off and just airing out the RV and and it was it was it was awesome so but yeah so we're gonna be having a string here let's see we've got what you're gonna be seeing we've got a trip to San Marcos still to show you yep we've got well we also have which is gonna be cool I think of me this Sunday will be the video on us putting in the sink to put in a new faucet yeah a little more of a project than we had hoped initially but it always yeah and it was lucky because I'll just tell you we were able to do it when we were moots talking so that's right it goes with the video from last Sunday kinda and and luckily Greg had the tools we needed yes because we couldn't have done it out on the road because it did take some extra tools now we could have gone to a hardware store and bought some of them but it was awesome that Greg had the proper tools for us yep and so we got the job done and and so we're gonna share that with you there's there's probably a little comedy in that as well but it it was he's very flexible oh yeah yeah I pretty much was for that deal but yeah coming up after that you're gonna see our trip to San Marcos yeah pecan Park RV park we just stayed and we've stayed before and that was a lot of fun you're gonna see our trip to Fort Parker State Park yep you're gonna see our trip to

When we were weekend RVers, we had an image in our heads of what full-time RV life would look like for us. RVing is different for everyone and there are a lot of different ways to enjoy the lifestyle. We enjoy time in RV parks and all of the amenities that come with them. But we bought the smallest diesel pusher currently manufactured so that we could stay in more state parks, national parks, and other natural areas. We’ve been living in our RV full-time now for over 7 months. In that time, we’ve experienced different styles of RV camping and a variety of lengths of stays. We feel like we’re finding our groove now, and it just keeps getting better! That’s the topic of this week’s Wingin’ It!.

  1. Hey y'all! Thanks for joining us for this episode of Wingin' It! What do you think of the spur of the moment, on-location Wingin' It!? Maybe we'll do some more like this while we are out exploring in the future. Let us know what you think! Cell services is spotty for us right now. We look forward to your comments and will respond as quickly as we can. See you Sunday!

  2. I was there earlier this summer. Absolutely WATCH for rattle snakes. They are everywhere. One was in our campsite as we were setting up. Rangers do “catch and release”. I saw a total of three on that trip alone. And I’m talking rattle snakes…rattlers, fangs and all.

  3. All the state parks that we have visitedAbilene state park, Tylor State Park, and Brownwood State Park have all been awesome in Texas can’t wait to visit more! Love your videos

  4. Hey guys! So fun to see you out on the trail "Wingin' It!". We stayed at Copper Breaks several years ago just for a night and have always wanted to return. We love Texas State Parks, as you know. And you're right, we're in a state park right now in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Put this on your list! (I'll get around to writing a post about it as soon as I catch up on our travels, haha!).
    I guess you can't bake your underwear in a convection oven, huh? But in that nice dry heat you can shower in your clothes and hang them out to dry. 😎 Hugs and Happy Trails! Laurel & Eric

  5. Hey, Tom and Stacie. Thanks for sharing your adventures and travels. We have a 2017 Breeze and I’ve enjoyed hearing about your experiences with the coach, especially as we are preparing to go full time in the next 24 months or so. Keep up the great storytelling – I especially love the Wingin’ It Wednesdays – and hope to see you on the road! Happy travels!

  6. Hi y'all
    I just have to let Yall no I arrived at Jamaica beach I thought I had a reservation but I didn't witch was my fault.but the gentlemen in the office was kind enough to let me stay for two night A BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE AT JAMAICA BEACH GALVESTON TX

  7. We stayed one night at Copper Breaks SP on the way back from Palo Duro SP in December 2012. The lake was very low. Looking at your video the Lake looks in good shape. I remember the campsite shelters were an unusual shape. We like Texas State Parks because there are usually good hiking trails and a lake. However I’ve noticed lately in many of the parks the campground loop roads and site spurs are stating to show their age. We are currently in Grand Tetons NP through 4th of July holiday. The views are spectacular. Keep having fun.

  8. To answer your question, a spur of the moment on-location Wingin’ It! is great. I love ‘em regardless of location, but this is so fun! Oh, and I love your sharing history of sites you visit. Thanks!

  9. Howdy Tom & Stacie! I noticed y'all like to go canoeing and we were at the most beautiful canoeing spot in Texas last summer. If your travels take you to northeast Texas, y'all have to plan a couple of days at Caddo Lake State Park https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/caddo-lake We loved our time there (cell & internet signals are weak in the park) but the maze of cypress tree lined waterways will make up for it. I think we paid $20 a night for our 43' rig with hookups. Also, visit the historic town of Jefferson which is nearby. BTW, The views from Copper Breaks y'all shot are amazing! Happy Travels!

  10. I know I have mentioned it to you before, but on our top 3 list of TX SP is Pedernales Falls State Park. Is that on your list or have y’all made it there yet? Y’all look happy and healthy and I’m loving the videos, keep them coming.
