Healthy Eating on the Road

We try to eat well which is harder when you are traveling. Once we stop to camp we do much better. We use our Blackstone grill a lot. I love it because you can cook your whole meal on one surface.

Today we were out buying some supplies for our Mobile RV Service business and stopped for soup and salad.

What do you generally eat on the road?

5 Tips During Power Outages

With all the freezing weather I thought I’d share these good tips.

Mobile Mom Tech Rescue

With all the bad weather and possible power outages predicted, here’s a few tips to keep your phones charged.

Charging Tips

  1. Keep your laptop and all laptops in your home fully charged! Even if you have an old one you don’t use often, keep it charged during times you know you might lose power. You can plug your cell phone or tablet into the USB port using your regular charging cables.
  2. Open your control center by swiping up from your home screen. Lower the brightness and put your phone in airplane mode. Note: Airplane mode will stop calls and text messages until you connect to your Wifi or a cellular connection. You might only do this periodically while you have no power or cellular connection.
  3. If you choose not to use Airplane mode, closing apps you don’t need will help with battery life. Apps may be running in the background…

Each series will include at least 1 epic boondocking area, some complete with pictures and all with GPS coordinates.

Patti Dunn’s Gumbo

The Smokin' F

I’ve had this recipe drafted on here for over a year. But I just couldn’t quite wrap my brain around how to start it. You see, the wonderful woman who shared this with me is a fellow BBQer.  I can’t even say I know her well. But I can say, what I know, I love. I so admire the love and adoration she and her husband share. I love that they have big hearts, margaritas after a competition, and dogs they love like family.  I love that they appreciate a good Bourbon as much as I do. And I hate that she posts amazing Tex-Mex and Creole dishes that I just can’t get here in Tennessee! She and her husband, Johnny, are just salt of the earth, good people.

So, I first asked Patty for this recipe to make Jay a superb birthday dinner in May of 2017. Not only…
