The Overnight Pioneer

This is a post for those who have ever wondered what it might be like to sleep under the stars in a covered wagon.  Totally random I know.  Take a look at this couple and their dog.  It’s The Traveling Pear circa 1900 minus Mr. Kitty–unless he’s sleeping in the wagon 😉

I seriously don’t know anyone, well accept my father, who would actually have a desire to sleep in a wagon.  Then again there’s Ree Drummond of The Pioneer Woman blog who might think a night in a covered wagon with her Marlboro Man would be really neat.

So, considering all that uniqueness it’s no wonder that when I found The Covered Wagon guest house in Mason, Texas I knew it was too out of the ordinary to pass up.  There were even star gazing tubs–yes I typed tubs as in bathtubs–to lay in and watch the big Texas night sky.

What a great idea! If only one could find that many antique bathtubs lying about.
