Lake Livingston State Park

Lake Livingston State Park Not far from Livingston is Lake Livingston State Park. I probably would preferred to stay here but the campground was closed at the time for renovations and repaving. I bought a Texas State Park Pass and spent the day wandering around the park.  As so many of the southern lakes are, Lake Livingston is the result of a damming, and functions as a water reservoir.  It's one of the largest reservoirs in Texas and supplies SW cities, including Houston, with their …

Finding Rainbow’s End & Livingston Texas

Rainbow’s End What is there to discover at Rainbow’s End? A place to camp! Rainbow's End is the Livingston, Texas, campground operated by Escapee’s RV Club and is the home of their head office and mail services. There are Escapees resorts, also known as SKP parks, and affiliated campgrounds all over the USA, but this is my home base because it's where I chose to domicile. They have convenient pull-through sites for those of us only staying a day or two (I actually stayed a week), and …

“Take off your shirt.” I looked at him in disbelief. “You take off yours, I’ll take off mine.” I scrutinized the number of people in the room… I’ve always been a shy person, and even at 20, there was no way I was stripping down in a sports bar full of men, especially since I was the bartender, and the bar is the focal point in the room.

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!
