Tex retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in Nov 2017 after 30 years service.

We live in our 2015 Class A Newmar Ventana Class A Diesel Pusher RV. We spend the winters in Gold Canyon, AZ and travel the rest of the year.

We have one miniature cocker spaniel. We have two grown daughters, Megan and Amanda. They are both married and both teach elementary school. Megan lives in Dillingham, Alaska and Amanda lives in OKC, OK. Megan has two boys and Amanda has one boy.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Tex is a jack of all trades. He can do just about anything. He has built houses and also built engines. He can do just about anything mechanically and can build or create just about anything. He can also sew really well and made all of our kids clothes when they were little. He is also a great cook and cooks all of our meals.

Susan is not very handy!! I do love cross-stitch, photography and reading.

We both love to kayak, hike and ride bikes.

We have one miniature cocker spaniel. Her name is Elsie Mae. She weighs about 20 pounds.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We love Moab, Utah! We have not done much boondocking yet. We just had 1,600 watts of solar installed so we are ready to start some serious boondocking!
