“Hey, you’re gonna be in Mississippi. Our house moves…”

Two weeks in Coastal Mississippi with our Navy Son!

Join us as we whisk you away on a heartwarming journey of reunion, exploration, FUN (and work, too)! We’ve been spending time in Coastal Mississippi with our oldest son, who now serves in the Navy’s EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) unit. His intense training regimen while in Gulfport, and the experiences he shared with us, gave us a newfound appreciation for the demanding work our military personnel undertake. ❤️ 🤍 💙

Frequently Asked Question: How do you find the fun while getting the job done?

Our travels in Charlie-The-Unicorn RV have led us to some hidden gems, and we’re eager to share our tips & tricks on how to uncover the best a location has to offer: From searching out the local Convention & Visitors Bureaus (CVB) In Real Life and online, to exploring resources like OnlyInYourState.com, RV Life PRO Reviews & Tips and Harvest Hosts, we’ll guide you on how to make the most of your RV Travel adventures.

We’ll recap our unforgettable after-work adventures with our Navy Son in Coastal Mississippi (Gulfport & Biloxi), including: 

  • (00:21:05) – Fine & casual dining on the Gulf Coast
  • (00:23:00) – Science & space adventures with NASA
  • (00:25:29) – #1 Fun (All Ages!) With A Flying Disc 🛸
  • (00:35:10) – Harvest Hosts: Mississippi Blues & BBQ
  • (00:38:40) – Thrilling wildlife encounters 🐊🐊🐊
