Blanco State Park: A River Runs Through It

Rivers weave in and out of hills and rocks or they flow straight, the water slowly making its way past mud banks, forests, and communities. They sparkle in the sunlight while birds fly above and fish dance below their surface. They provide food to eat, water to drink and cool us off from the hot sun on a scorching summer day. We lay on the banks looking up to the blue sky and think “this is what life is all about!” The beauty, the comfort, the happiness. But the reality is, we can’t truly …

Regrowth at Bastrop State Park

I left Livingston, Texas, and began to work my way towards the Gulf of Mexico. I was planning to spend the night in a Walmart parking lot when I came upon a sign for Bastrop State Park in the same area. I made a split-second decision and decided to drive into the park to see if they had a campsite for the night. I like having electricity and my successful spontaneous Alabama Gulf stay was still confidently fresh in my psyche. I crossed my fingers for roads that fit my camper or a place I could …

About Real Home Sense


is considered the place where one lives permanently.

The location you return to every night after a day of work or play. It’s where you keep your stuff.

Most people consider home static, non-moving; like an apartment, a house, or even a double-wide in a fixed location.

But more people are discovering that this definition of home doesn’t have to be true. The concept of home can live in your heart and if you learn how to SENSE it, home can be where ever you choose it to be. An RV, a hotel, an Air BnB, or a series of couches. Travel a city, a country, or the world, and still be home.

Home is a state of mind, where your basic needs are met and accompanied by  feelings of comfort.

Home is where your heart is – safe, healthy, and happy – but feeling alive and personal growth doesn’t usually happen here.

You need to step outside your door, and into a little discomfort, because that is where you’ll feel truly alive, and that is where the REAL adventure begins…



Let the adventures begin!
