Texas ATV Adventures

With my backpack filled with leftover Thanksgiving Turkey sandwiches and bottles of water, we set off on an ATV adventure…..


We rode about 4 hours, and enjoyed our lunch by a small creek, surrounded by the beautiful East Texas pine trees and fall foliage, before returning home.
And taking a shower.
Because we were covered in dirt, and mud…. and happiness.


My husband usually complains about the 7 mile logging road we must travel to reach our farm, but he loves it when we get out our four wheelers. Surrounded by timber country, it’s isolated and fun.

We purchased our four wheelers when the big kids were still little, and would ride with us.  We added some dirt bikes as they got old enough to ride on their own.   It’s a great family activity, and something we look forward to whenever we visit the farm, and we enjoy taking them with us to ATV parks, too!
