Halfway Mark

Today we've been here at Indian Hills Resort for 2 months -- exactly 1/2 of our  agreed commitment.  "Resort" is a little of a misnomer in my opinion.  Don't get me wrong, it's a nice place, but "fishing camp" would be a more accurate description.  The campsites are nice, as are the walking trails.  But if you don't care to fish or boat, there's really not much to do out here.
Consequently there's also not much to report in our blog.  I've run into a few issues with selling the house in Austin, but it should all be resolved by the end of the month.  Other than that the only thing I have to share is a fun, easy cake recipe that is great for RVer's.  I read about it in someone else's blog and I'm afraid I can't retrace my steps to tell you who shared this great idea -- but the recipe is so easy that I remembered it after reading it ONCE!

3, 2, 1 Cake

1 box angel food cake mix
1 box any other flavored cake mix

Mix the 2 cake mixes together in a large zip top baggie.  To make each cake (more of a cupcake) mix 3 tablespoons cake mix with 2 tablespoons water in a coffee cup.  Microwave on high for 1 minute.  Let cool slightly and remove from cup.  Top with fruit, frosting, chocolate... whatever strikes your fancy.

Till next time...


  1. 3,2,1 cake is all over the web now so it is public domain. I like it in that it is an easy way to get a quick fix for a cake craving. Plus it does not heat up the oven.

    When you come back south for the winter, we need to pick your brain about spots up north. It looks like we will be in northern Colorado just shout of Cheyenne during the summer of 2013.

    Keep us in the loop on your winter plans. Hope to see you soon and meet your knight (aka, Kevin)

    1. Did you guys decide where you are going to be this winter?

  2. Hi Carol and Kevin!

    My name is Sandy Hooper and I'm an assistant producer with NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams. Would you mind shooting me a quick e-mail so that we could have a conversation outside of your blog's comment section? :-)It's

    Thanks! I'm looking forward to hearing from you.


  3. Oh my, looks like you could be famous soon?? :)

  4. Isn't it amazing how people end up on our blogs? I got here because someone went from here to mine and I just wanted to see why... I'm glad I found yours. Are you full-timers now? We just love our life of RVing and it led us from the Midwest through the West Coast to Texas where we work in the oil fields as gate guards. Life is an adventure for us.

    1. Yes, we are fulltimers. The house in Austin finally closed last month. Now on with the rest of life!

  5. Just caught your blog...neat stuff! Love the cake recipe...a keeper for my Pinterest boards!
