Percy Quin State Park

Percy Quin State Park

We are always looking for quick weekend trips that require less than an hour drive.  We live just on the other side of Lake Maurepas from New Orleans, so we’re lucky to have a number of places that fit the bill.  Percy Quin State Park […]

The Best Place to Camp on Dauphin Island

The Best Place to Camp on Dauphin Island

The sleepy beach town of Dauphin Island has really grown on Josh and I this past year. It’s close to home, it’s underdeveloped (this is good, in our opinion), and the word “touristy” never comes to mind. These few points makes it close to perfect […]

Bogue Chitto State Park

Bogue Chitto State Park

It’s surprising to think that as close as this state park is to our home (the closest), Josh and I hadn’t explored it yet. I suppose we tend to picture our “get away” as getting a-w-a-y. Craving a camping trip so last minute, it was […]

Building an Offset Barbecue Smoker – Part Two

Building an Offset Barbecue Smoker – Part Two

If you’re just now jumping on board my “building an offset smoker” wagon, you should probably go and read part one first.  This post will make a lot more sense! Once we get to this part of the build, it’s important to note how much support […]

Building an Offset Barbecue Smoker – Part One

Building an Offset Barbecue Smoker – Part One

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m maxed out with my current cookers as far as capacity.  Thirty pounds of meat is about as big as I can go, and to go that big requires a whole lot of extra work maintaining two cookers that function and […]

Most everyone that knows me, knows that I love barbecue.  Not just in the sense that I like to eat it, but all the small acts that come together over the ten plus hours it takes to cook brisket, pork shoulder, ribs, chicken, whatever.  I […]

What to Pack for an RV Trip

Updated 6/26/2017 Josh and I took our second trip with the camper this weekend. We’re hooked. As big of fans as we are of tent camping, we’re not sure we’ll ever stay in a tent again! Okay, okay maybeee that’s dramatic, but our camper is […]

Save Water! How to build a DIY Rain Catcher

Save Water! How to build a DIY Rain Catcher

In light of Earth Month (for those of you that don’t know, it’s Earth Month!), we wanted to share a post on how to build a DIY rain catcher.. because why not save water?! When prepping our garden space in February, we realized all the […]

Our Square Foot Garden

Our Square Foot Garden

This weekend was a rainy one. Josh and I originally had plans to spend it at Manchac Pass but decided against it after seeing the forecast (rain, rain go away). Luckily, we had projects around the house to complete to fill our time. Saturday after […]

Weekending: Getting Stuff Done

Weekending: Getting Stuff Done

It’s such a good feeling when you finally get around to doing things you’ve always had the intention of doing but – never did. Josh and I have been super productive the past two weekends, and we are loving it. Purchasing a brand new living room, […]
