(We are on our way to Arizona!)
COLD!!!! That’s been the word for the past 5 days!
We are able to get packed and leave last Saturday morning. Not a pretty travel day but not too cold. Made it to a Meridian, MS Passport America park….not much there. Just a gravel parking lot with a nice bathhouse and office. Free chocolate candy!
The next day the forecast got scary with talk of sleet and snow but we pressed on driving through rain and wind and back into the sunshine….cold sunshine! Got through all of MS and LA arriving at another Passport park in Longview, TX. The predicted low for the night is 19 degrees! (Need to stop here and remind everyone that we do not have a furnace….just a little ceramic space heater!) We manage to sleep warm with our comforter and a few throws. I worry about our cat, Sylvester, staying warm. I try to cover him and he does not cooperate. Eventually he makes his bed on David’s stomach.
The next morning we have ice on all our windows….on the inside!!!! It is 17 degrees that morning and I hope to never experience that again! The freeze is predicted to extend another day and night but I’m not concerned as we will be camping inside Little House Customs’ shop that night.
For the past two years we have had BAL stabilizers on our wish list for the Casita. And it’s going to finally happen!
Tada! The finished product!
Since it has been way too cold to take any pictures outside….and thought it might be different to show what it’s like on the inside of a Casita. Not the pretty little doll house pictures that I see on Facebook and the forums but our version of real camping!

Sylvester enjoying the heater!
Supper….the leftovers did not fill us….second course, vanilla wafers and peanut butter.
Baby boy staying warm.
Enjoyed our time at Little House Customs as Larry and Debbie are great hosts! I stuck to Larry’s huge wood burning stove…it felt sooo good to be warm!
A better view of this wonderful stove! This is the main source of heat for his shop.
Our Casita baby all snug and warm for the night!

Writing tonight from Monahans Sandhills State Park (west Texas) ….last night was spent in Ranger, TX. May be through with Texas by tomorrow afternoon….sure takes forever to drive!
The good news!!!!!! It was 60 here today! But 28 predicted tonight….still camping with hookups.
