Finally ~ Some Good News ~ Back Home In Texas


well everyone good morning I’m home well
this is my official home here in Livingston Texas here at escapees so had
some business to take care of and I am happy to report some good news finally as I was driving through East Texas
yesterday I got a an email with a scanned picture from escapees showing me
that my bank card had finally arrived and I have already picked that up today
so the other thing is today is it going to be a crazy day as I make a bunch of
changes and fix fix all these problems so that they don’t come back part of my
process is to change most of my automatic payments to be linked with my
account number and routing number instead of the bank card that I can’t
control and also I’ve got to sit down and change 16 other cards that I can’t
change you know because like YouTube and Netflix and stuff like that it has to be
done with a card with an expiration and stuff so I got to sit down and manually
change all those over today plus other mail that I got here was my 1099 from
PayPal and my 1099 from Google YouTube so I got my tax forms to be able to
start filing for my 2019 taxes I am gonna get started on those with TurboTax
I will not finish it in one day but it’ll feel good to get a jumpstart on
that today I do feel like it’s easiest just to stay one night here even though
I’m just passing through to collect my mail and get a couple things it’s just
it’s more convenient to book one night have the RV parked here so that I can
scoot on the motorcycle take care and just kind of relax and regroup I did do
a lot of driving in these last couple weeks I never have a problem getting a
campsite here either there they got a lot of sites here at
rainbows rainbows and area and this is where I’m at kinda in the woods kind of
big slot speed between me and the other RVs 22 bucks a night for full hookups
really ain’t that bad but as I hinted at I’m gonna have to come back here either
end of February or the 1st of March because I didn’t get everything I needed
you know I got to take care of registration and inspections I got to
get the motorcycle inspected and there’s a couple other funny things going on
that I’m gonna wait till I get them resolved I’m just laughing at it now but
doesn’t matter man as hard as you try sometimes things just don’t work out the
way you planned and I’m in a good mood about it it’s funny
gonna hang out in Texas and go explore some new stuff in Texas here but I want
to get a little bit of work done so let me log in about four hours here see how
far I can get with all my bank cards and taxes and stuff and then I’ll I’ll talk
to here in a bit I’ll show you something real quick here that I’m not too happy
about I had mentioned a couple weeks ago that I was looking forward to the new
Mickey jacket because I found my same extra-large version in a large version
and I ordered it because I’ve been shrinking in size and well it arrived
here in Livingston and not all jackets are created equal or taken care of the
same obviously so not sure how well the camera is going to pick this up this is
my extra-large Mickey jacket that I have taken care of really really well okay
and then here’s the one I just got on the right the white actually it’s not
really showing up I’m looking in the monitor but the white is very very
yellow and stained you know let’s see can you see the cuff okay so and it
doesn’t feel like us like a soft leather it feels like a very it’s just a much
different feel there’s a good shot you can see how yellow this is and I handed
the Mickey emblem right there is really dirty yeah I’m yeah dang it anyway nope
no biggie it’s it’s fine it’s it’s a cloudy and dreary here in Texas and also
a little bit chilly but it’s not freezing oh my goodness meow it’s not
freezing and it’s not snowing so you need to stretch your little cat paws out such a good boy good be found a box
Jack’s found a box we can do it that box I’m gonna sniff it and nuzzle it and
inspect it you know you know okay does it all check out I decided to take a
little break guys I’m actually gonna go up to the Walmart here in Livingston so
I’m gonna bundle up and put on some long pants
everything I gotta go get a few supplies I got to get some fresh chicken to do my
weekly prep meals and everything so I’m gonna go for a little ride and break up
the day I am done with all of my automatic payments and everything and I
started on my taxes what is it about that box I’m a funny boy so uh yeah
that’s if I see anything interesting along my ride I’ll share it with you
though yeah Brody even sniff huh is your mouth open what did you smell
what is it yeah there-there must have been this must have came from a cathouse
this Mickey jacket I got a backpack full of stuff I gotta get in the fridge soon
so I can’t be out here playing long but I did want to stop at this rest area
because like I said Texas is has that 24 hour overnight parking rule at all of
these so I’m scoping them out and if I like one particularly I’ll star it on
Google so that when I’m in this area I may be able to enjoy a little piece of
overnight parking also the other reason why I’m not getting rid of this extra
large Mickey jacket is because if I continue to lose weight see I’m wearing
a hoodie I’m wearing a thermal top a t-shirt a thermal top a hoodie and the
jacket and so it’s a little puffed up won’t be able to do that in a jacket
that’s too thin so I’ll definitely keep it but I probably won’t be keeping the
one I just got on eBay it’s just too grungy and dirty and smelly and I don’t
like it but I like using the bike to scope out either potential boondocking
spots or just to kind of get an idea so for this rest area I would pull in this
section I’m in right now and I would park the RV right there in those two
slots right there because it’s away from the trucks over there there’s no rules
here that say RVs can’t be over here I mean I can’t fit into single stalls like
this with the RV but there’s one spot like I said I’m gonna write that in the
notes there’s one spot for an RV away from the semis all right well we got a
head back though I did make a u-turn for this one guys because I thought
something like bad was happening and I was very very confused I’m very confused
about this house and what’s going on out the windows
are you confused like me what in the heck is that it looks like a weird
creature of sorts is sticking out of the side of the windows I am very confused
here it is private property I can’t go past the fence but I’m baffled oh my
gosh it’s the other side too this is as close as I can get to it I don’t know
what in the heck is supposed to be sticking out of the windows but I will
not be buying this house oh my gosh it’s loud by the highway all right we got to
get back on the road now it is loud around here well just got back to the RV
I’m gonna throw some laundry in there while I’m here and do all my bed sheets
and towels and big stuff and the floor mat and all that stuff gonna do that
here and then get back to working on my taxes I know that doesn’t sound like a
whole lot of fun but you know I might as well cuz I got I got a place to stay
it’s cloudy it’s cold outside tomorrow be a better day I stopped at a thrift
store there in Livingston and although they don’t have a cassette tape you know
place right there over by the DVDs I found two winners I got two cassettes
for toto two of them and they work great I’ve
already tested them inside they’re in really good condition ninety-nine cents
a piece what a steal right doing some construction over there also I get an
email up that knows through the app I got an app update from AMC you know my
AMC a list that allows me up to three movies a week that at AMC’s and I
believe me I get my buddies worth man I love seeing movies even if I don’t eat
popcorn at him anymore but something changed they sent sent me an email and
said hey we’re only gonna give you one theater now for the $20 price you get to
pick one theater in the country and that’s it
so I guess there’s my word of mouth it’s been getting a lot more popular now
travelers are we’re starting to do it more often and so they noticed that we
would go to the really good theaters you know like sometimes it’s a four or five
dollar ticket other times you know you go to Downtown Disney or Disney springs
and you know the IMAX or the Dolby can be over twenty dollars for one ticket so
you make that up no in just one ticket anyway they Jack the
price up $5 if you want to make it in an international a list so instead of 20
plus tax it’s now 25 plus tax and I’ve also heard rumors that that’s
gonna go up to normal 25 and 30 at some point here in 2020 so they must be
making some money but they’re also learning that you know we’re getting a
pretty good deal so I’m gonna continue it for at least a couple more months
possibly not into the summer time though I may drop it I mean it’s I can watch
movies on the RV with Jax and yeah gotta have my fake fire I can make it seem more real just add
some fake crackling sound in the background anyways guys back on the road tomorrow
start some new adventures here in Texas I hope you’re gonna be following with me
it’s gonna be a fun couple months together so anyway hope you guys have a
good one from Jax and I we will see you next time on the channel bye guys

  1. Love the videos, how about for a video series a tour of Texas? All the spots in your new home state that you love and for those of us who have never been there would find interesting. Just a thought.

  2. While you're in Texas Big Bend is an awesome place if you haven't been there. Keep the good stuff coming and let's try and get together at that "other" track if you'd like.

  3. if your are looking for a boondocking spot come on down here to my 1000 acres of land in presidio tx ,always happy to have visiters

  4. Yep, all those chores that make us responsible adults. Gross about the jacket. Dry cleaner might be able to clean that up, but why bother? Seller should have disclosed that. Send it back. Love the octopus house! Be safe. Looking great!

  5. Coming from a true Texan…. I am proud to call you a fellow Texan. Hope you get a chance to visit Corpus again. I know your last visit here was not the best.

  6. I think you have to give the Jacket guy a little more leniency. Not everyone has the exact, like new jacket to compare it to. But if you arent happy and the defects were not mentioned, file for a return and send it back. 🙂

  7. So glad things are working out for you. That's my hometown and I miss it. Do not remember that house, wow…crazy. I haven't been for a visit in a while. How was walmart? Hope you get some more videos around there. Take care!

  8. Have you looked into bluebird card it's a card u load your self you buy them at Walmart it's great I've had one for 5 years it come in real handy when b.o.a does there crap thing love jax

  9. I used Turbo Tax until I read they are under investigation for fraudulently charging customers more than they should have. I used Credit Karma for free and it was very easy. Just saying

  10. I think watching movies at home with Jax is way better than a public theater, while Jax sits home alone. Luna agrees. Hugs and kissies for Jax! See the two of you in the next video!

  11. You need to use these kind of days to binge watch some netflix. "Better Call Saul" was JUST ADDED (season 4) YESTERDAY! (Been waitin' on that sucker a while…)

  12. Omg. You are letting Jax out without a leash. Oh Eric please do not take it forgranted.

  13. Hi Eric im so glad you are fixing that problem. You look fantastic, keep up the good work and eating healthy. Hi my beutyful jax you look awesome. Have a great week eric, take care of yourself and jax. Bye eric, 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍🤗 MILAGROS MOGRO FROM FL.

  14. Stop following for while I’m back love Texas!!! Y’all get some cowboy boots 👍🏽easy to do nightly chores been following from forever great content 👍🏽

  15. Just wait till you loose all your desired weight and order a new Mickey jacket! You sure don't want stinky, stained, soiled seconds!

  16. Before you give up on that jacket….maybe seek out someone who cleans Leather materials?

    Just an idea…other than that your health looks so good on you….keep smiling🤗

  17. You can clean and condition that leather very affordable, it's just time consuming. If you haven't been before, the Alabama-Coushatta Indian reservation is in that area and they are known for their beautiful pottery.

  18. I know exactly where that Texas I69(Hwy59) reststop is at….Between Leggett and Seven Oaks….the blue house is a landmark for Christmas Tree sales during the season….some of the land is Indian Reservation….you were very close to the Naskila Casino….Great ribeyes on Thursday evenings for $10 plus a good Sunday morning Brunch….Hope you find all our quirky stuff in My area….

  19. You are too funny. Thanks for the crackling fire. 🔥 And I love the "tiger face " our kitties make when they're sniffing. 🐱 I know it's called something else, but…😂

  20. Just NOT right, we were in Fla and you were out west, we were out west and you went to Fla. We were in Texas last week and now your in Texas. We'll NEVER meet up, so we are thinking about Alaska when it warms up a bit, so i'm sure you'll go after we go… sorry about the jacket. Jax sure loves his boxes ( as does all cats)

  21. Lots of History out there in Livingston. The PAKANA MVSKOKE Indians which my heritage comes from via Florida. Johnas Davis(my cousin) Cabin is out there check it out

  22. Eric, check out "Angel Souls" YouTube channel! She is great, funny and mucho informative. I think you'd like her channel and her! 😊

  23. I always get a lift from your up attitude. Check out the texas state park pass, 80 bucks for a year of no day use fees and the second night of camping is half off. I think the 7th day is free, but I never have stayed that long. I can also recommend LBJ National Grasslands for free for boondocking. Your rig could handle all the primary roads. I may be there next week (2/16) and further south maybe Big Bend the week after. Met you at Lolapoluza and realized you are not a pozer, but genuinely a nice, friendly guy.

  24. Leather jackets can be cleaned. That jacket is only dirty, needs a good leather cleaning. Take it to a reputable leather cleaner at your location.

  25. I am glad you aren’t keeping that dirty jacket! I love how neat and clean you always are. And I love your gas bonfire 🔥 even without a crackle lol you could still roast a hotdog or marshmallow on it and it is just nice to watch the flames.

  26. Just wanted to ask why you changed your home state from south Dakota to Texas? Just wanted to know if something changed the affected your change. Thanks for the info. Ladybug Peg.

  27. OMG! I was just listening yesterday to some songs from those two Toto albums on a Spotify Toto playlist I created in 2015: How Does It Feel from Isolation and Lea & I'll Be Over You from Fahrenheit. I was also thinking yesterday, way back in the Great Eighties, I never knew anyone with Toto albums, or anybody who was a big fan. So it was just me and Toto. So neat to see you found those special cassettes. Cheers to you and Jax!

  28. I sense a big change in your demeanor Eric (for the best). It seems that you are more energetic, motivated, positive, and happier. Keep up the great work on that diet and exercising. To me, it really shows in your videos. Greetings from Philippines

  29. It's not fake if you can roast a marshmallow with it. Yeah that other jacket, is pretty nasty. Glad you didn't already give your's away.

  30. I just found your channel. Fellow Texan here. I'm from Beaumont, currently residing in Arkansas. Anyway, new subscriber… looking forward to your adventures. m

  31. You are such a cool R.V. nerd. The windows are quirky… you are a magnet for quirky. Toto…oh no!

  32. I was driving through that area just a few days ago and I saw that scary little house as I drove by! What is that?! Thank you for stopping and sharing the footage so I could get a better look. 😁
    Love your videos!

  33. The home I love to see you in is the PNW, but this will do for now! Nice, understated little video. Thanks as always!

  34. I would've taken the jacket back too Eric. & that house? what is it lol? Crackling noise CRACKED ME UP LOL!!! sounded real!! LOVES/HUGS to you & Jax!!!!

  35. Hi Nomadic. Hey love the vids, couldn't help notice about the AMC deal, which doesn't seem to be much of one now. I have Regal cinema unlimited pass for $18 a month. As many movies and as many times I want. NO LIMIT bud!!! Maybe check that out. Stay safe brother.
