Arizona Capitol Museum and Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaz

We’re always looking for free things to do, because free is good, right? Right. And in Phoenix we found a couple of gems.

The Arizona Capitol Museum has a great display of Arizona history and artifacts from the USS Arizona…and even some Legos!

The Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza has over 29 monuments honoring those who have served in different wars. The centerpiece is the tribute to the USS Arizona, featuring her signal mast and one of her anchors. A very moving display.

Know before you go:
Parking is free. Park in the Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza off street parking lot. 

Take care, and who knows…As We Go, maybe we’ll see you on the road! Safe travels!

RV Quick Tips-Fridge door

Fridge Doors.

They don't always stay closed, do they?

Kitchen Towel to the rescue! Here's what I came up with one day after the fridge decided to pop it's door open while we were underway.

Don't worry. No groceries were harmed, but we learned we needed a way to secure the door.
Hope you find this quick tip helpful!

San Jacinto Day Festival and Battle Reenactment

Battle of San Jacinto reenactors

You’re invited to join us as we go take in a celebration of a pivotal point in Texas, and U.S. History…the Battle of San Jacinto. Hope you enjoy our brief look at this event.

Every April in Houston, Texans (and others) gather at the San Jacinto Monument for a one-day event that commemorates the Battle of San Jacinto.

Like any festival, the San Jacinto Day Festival and Battle Reenactment; there’s a variety of performers, vendors, food trucks and to this is added a variety of reenactors, displays and more. Check out our video below!

Now, I know we didn’t see it all…and this was my first outing shooting video with the GoPro, so it was a learning curve…painful at that…unfortunately I missed some great audio moments because of how the GoPro works. Ah well, just chalk it up to learning! (Note to self...turn GoPro on at side main button, THEN use the capture button on top to stop and start video!)


Here’s just a few of the 60+ Festival and Reenactor groups and vendors we saw:

  • Texas Naval Squadron
  • Sons of the Republic
  • Buffalo Soldiers
  • Texas Camel Connection
  • Black Beaver, Delaware Blanket Trader
  • North Harris County Dulcimers
  • HSPVA Mariachi Los Pasajeros
  • Fred Rusk & the Zydeco Hi-Steppers
