We took a brief pause from our reality with Stewie to enjoy a celebration with my brother and his fiancé, as they turned from engaged to husband and wife. They did this in one of their favorite spots, Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park. The day was perfect, the bride and groom were perfect. The family and friends and music was perfect. We didn’t have much time for sightseeing but we got to spend some time with good people. We are now on our return leg to meet up with Stewie and see what it will take to get him … Continue reading Returning to reality

Meant to take pics or video while she was on the road, but found I was severely disappointed at how boring she looked! 😂😂 There was just nothing that made her stand out as exciting. … Continue reading Something coming?
I’d like to introduce you to Stewie, our 2002 Stewart & Stevenson M1078A1 retired military vehicle with 4800 miles on the clock. Stewie was originally stationed at Robbins Air Force base in Macon, GA. She was decommissioned and put up … Continue reading Meet Stewie
