Dreams



Harriet Tubman once stated, “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

Do you think you can answer these questions below and change the world or maybe your lives? Our answers precede each question.

Are you a dreamer? 

Bulldog Man and I are dreamers.  We both have been dreaming for years about having a recreation vehicle to travel our beautiful country, and for a possible bug out vehicle.

Do you have patience?

We both have patience, and have been waiting for years for this dream to happen.  The past 5+ years, Bulldog Man and I would literally go to just about every RV show in the state of Oklahoma and Texas.  In between RV shows we would visit RV dealerships, do research on the internet, and compile a list of wants, needs, desires and save money.  

Do you have the passion needed to reach for the stars to change the world or maybe your lives?

Bulldog Man and I have the passion to reach for the stars in many ways.  Granted our reach may not change the world but it did change our lives. On Saturday we purchased a Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Duramax Diesel truck, and yesterday we picked up a new recreation vehicle the Starcraft Travel Star 314RESA travel trailer.

Friends stop putting your dreams on the back burner.  Life is short, start creating goals (plans) to work toward your dreams, take steps (no matter the size) and work toward your dreams.

Thanks for stopping by and reading about our dreams.

Coming soon, I have a gift (give-away) for a reader.  Keep a look out for an upcoming post.

    1. Harry,

      Thanks!!! I took us a long time to save and find the exact trailer, and of course the truck to haul it. Now that we have both were going to just enjoy them on our schedules.

  5. Well that's cool. If ya ever get a hankerin to watch hay grow you can always park that thing in my field if you ever come this way. I wouldn't say the scenery is especially great but sometimes it can be entertaining.

      Thank you, we thought so :-)
      We so appreciate the offer to watch hay grow :P:P
      When were up that way (it probably will be a while), we will drop you an e-mail and maybe we can have some coffee together.

  6. Buying our land and the little house were dreams of ours. Mine long before I even met 2nd Man. But thankfully, he dreamed the same dream as me (though me, maybe a bit more, ha). And it's still a dream in many aspects as we slowly turn it into what we want.

    Yours came true! YAY! The whole rig, truck and camper, is a thing of beauty. As I read your post and saw it, my first thought was the same as Kymber...PICS! WE NEED PICS INSIDE!!

    Enjoy, you deserve it!

  7. Congrats on the Camper. You both will have so much fun with it. Make sure you keep up with the maintenance on it and if you have a covered storage area for it, I would highly suggest it.

    1. Senior,

      Thank you! We can't wait to get it out at a park and shake it down. For sure, maintenance is already scheduled on my calendar, and we have an enclosed warehouse to park this baby in for safety, and protected from the weather.
      Sending hugs and love to you and your family.

  10. Yes, we all need to have "the dream" first, but then the research, study, planning, and good old-fashioned hard work comes into play before you reach the point you and BDM are at with your new truck and trailer. Congratulations on your intelligent tenacity. Now get out there and ENJOY!! So happy for you.

      Yes Ma'am we're going to get out there and enjoy life to it's fullest. Then were going to find some land. The goal is to travel looking for land for our future. Who knows maybe one day we will be up your way to say hello :-)
      Thank you sweet friend. Sending love and hugs to you both Sandy.
