Day trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and a Epic Fail in the Mountains
I go on a day trip to explore Santa Fe, New Mexico by foot. We visit the historic plaza, the Loretto Chapel and it's miraculous staircase, the St. Francis Cathedral, Artsy Canyon Road, and the oldest house in the United States. Then I get lost in the mountains looking for the Tent Rocks, and the road was closed.
We tow a 2015 Winnebago Micro Minnie 1706FB travel trailer. You are more than welcome to tag along in our travels by subscribing to this channel.

Giving new meaning to the term year-round family resort, Great Wolf Lodge defies the weather outside with an indoor waterpark experience that has young and old soaking in the fun!
Whether it's 10 degrees below or raining cats and dogs, it's always a balmy 84 degrees inside the resort's huge, 56,000 square-foot indoor waterpark. Bear Track Landing, on of America's largest indoor waterparks, puts the emphasis on fun with six waterslides, three pools and a four-story treehouse water fort. The state-of-the-art facility utilizes nearly 340,000 gallons of water that is splashed, sprayed, waved and played in by both kids and parents alike.

Program 2619. Air dates February 18-24, 2018 & August 19-25, 2018
Planting Pines, Texas Quail & Trinity Paddling
Lone Star Land Steward: Greg Grant
Deep in the Piney Woods of East Texas, you’ll meet a tree hugger that does things a bit different. Greg Grant has restored his family land, working hard to create pine savannahs, and pine forests. Now that they are established he’s been killing his pine trees ever since.
The State of Quail
Texas has long been known for its robust quail populations, but habitat loss has impacted all four quail species in the state. Though their homes range from desert floodplain and brush land to prairie grasslands, these quail species need native habitat to thrive. Find out how researchers, non-profits, and landowners and managers are working together to keep quail numbers healthy statewide.
Lake Arrowhead State Park
Close to the Red River in both location and hue, this North Texas park offers family fun and fine fishing.
Traversing the Trinity
Grab a paddle and hit the river, wherever you live there is a paddling trail nearby. For folks in Dallas there’s one right in the heart of the city. The Dallas Trinity Paddling Trail is 10.2 miles of unexpected fun.

Thai Elephant Massage - by a Cute Baby Elephant in Koh Samui
In 2007 I volunteered to get a massage from a baby elephant in Thailand, on Koh Samui. The baby elephant was super cute and kept tickling me and also gave me a big wet kiss on my check. Surprisingly, the elephant actually gave a great special massage - with the perfect amount of pressure! It wasn't a Thai Hot Stem Massage of course, but it was impressive and disturbing that a baby elephant could do this. Learn more about how I ended up experiencing this here:
Reading more about how these baby elephants are trained to do these types of 'stunts' - it's pretty shocking. On the PETA Asia-Pacific site it shares videos about how baby elephants are taken from their mothers, tied down, and beaten so severely that they bleed and scream, all in order to force them to perform ridiculous tricks for tourists. To learn more, please take a read of this blog post:
I posted this video ages ago to share just with some family and friends the craziness I experienced. Since recently it has gotten more popular, I would like to encourage you to help spread the word about these types of safaris and the dangers they pose to Thai wildlife.
To raise money, I will be donating Adsense Revenues from this Youtube video to support the care of baby elephants through the organization Bring The Elephant Home - Learn more here:
Also to show your support, please take a pledge to protect baby elephants by raising awareness of this issue here:
