- Welcome to the travels of Doug and Nada. We love the Lord and are traveling full-time in our motorhome with our German Shepherd, Homer. Homer is the star attraction wherever we stop and he gets us talking and sharing with many people. DON'T FORGET: YOU CAN ENLARGE EACH PHOTO BY CLICKING ON THE PHOTO!

9/29/2011 - Bureau of Engraving & Printing & Cabelas Fort Worth
Today we toured the Bureau of Engraving and Printing where they print half of the money printed in the US. We weren't allowed to take cameras or cell phones into the complex so we don't have any photos to post. The ad above is from the Fort Worth Magazine. They have a special visitor's center outside the compound and the security is quite tight and the screening is extensive. Then you get on a bus and it takes you into the compound. We had lots of fun as we were mixed in with a group of local homeschool students from the Dallas -Fort Worth area who were on a field trip. It brought back many memories of doing such field trips with Josh. It was really quite interesting to see the whole process from an elevated glass enclosed walkway. I've never seen so many hanging security cameras!
Next we went to Cabelas and did some looking. ;-) I loved that cowboy on the horse sculpture that was out front.
Tonight we just experience a Texas thunderstorm as a huge front moved through the area. We had pea sized hail and winds of 50 MPH according to the weather channel. Homer was under the table as the motorhome rocked in the wind! We're not sure about coming to Dallas anymore since every time we come we have experienced horrible thunderstorms. Our temps should be in the upper 80's tomorrow (instead of 100 like it was today) so we are going to the Historic Stockyard District to see the cattle drive and historical area.
