Oct 27, 2018 - Ozark, AL - Mr. D's RV Park

Our trip from Red Bay to Ozark, AL was another (9th straight) trip in the rain and covered 294 miles, taking 5½ hours including the Mothership getting another drink in Birmingham. The trip through Birmingham was its usual white knuckle ride but we made it through unscathed again! We are staying at Mr. D's RV Park on the north side of Ozark. It is a rudimentary park with 50 amp, full hookup, pull-through sites popular for one-night stays for travelers. We stayed two nights so we could watch college football today!! The Dogs beat the Gators...

Jun 17, 2018 - Boll weevil local hero

Today we drove to Enterprise. In 1915 their local economy was decimated by the Boll Weevil - this area produced cotton exclusively. As we drove to Enterprise we could see this is an agricultural area. The crop was down to 10% by the time that pest took over and they were looking for a way to survive. After trying out various other crops the farmers found that diviersifying was far better for the soil and that peanuts were very successful here. So the local economy rebounded with this new cash crop and a monument was erected in the town...

Jun 16, 2018 - Fort Rucker Army Aviation

Yesterday we stopped on the drive at Loves to have the tires torqued. I got the Loves card and will see if we can get a pay at the pump option. As we drove through Dothan we saw Army helicopters coming in to land at Ft. Rucker. We are at Mr D’s Campground, we were put in a long gravel site and then moved to an asphalt spot as the pavers are coming tomorrow to work on the gravel sites. Gayle brought us some strawberry shortcake for our trouble, very good. Today we went to the Army Aviation museum which is a top notch facility at Ft. Rucker...

Mar 26, 2018 - Ozark AL

Greetings from the road. Our time in FL has come to a close after a great Sunday in the Keys, some more gabbing and dining with friends, seeing pictures of our new 4-legged grandson and some time in Ocala and The Villages. As predicted, we didn’t get everything done that we had planned to, but still made a pretty good dent in the list. Our trek north started later than planned – 12:30 as opposed to 9:00 – because of some issues in The Villages, but after just shy of 6 hours of driving we are parked for one night in Ozark, Alabama after a...

Apr 9, 2017 - Ozark AL

Days 10-12: Thursday - Saturday April 6-8, 2017 Theodore AL to Ozark AL We departed Payne’s RV Park at 8:55 am Saturday en route to Ozark AL. Our original plan was to go northeast on I-65 to Evergreen AL then east on US 31 through Enterprise (where we lived from 1977-1985), then northeast on AL 27 to Ozark. We’ve used this route previously. However, westerly winds favored going east on I-10 to US 231 at Marianna FL, then north on US 231 through Dothan AL to Ozark. We fueled at the Flying J in Dothan and arrived at the Ozark KOA at 2 pm....

Nov 19, 2015 - Day 11 - in Nashville, Tennessee to Ozark/Ft. Rucker Alabama

Thursday was clear and sunny, and we were on the road at 8:00 AM heading south. WE fueled up in Lewisburg, Tennessee and crossed the border into Alabama about 9:45 AM. About 3:00PM we spotted a KOA sign and stopped at Ozark-Fort Rucker KOA in Ozark, Alabama. This is a lovely setting with concrete sites, a pond with fountain, decorative lighting and friendly staff. W enjoyed the sun until it went behind a hill, then enjoyed cable TV for the evening.

Jul 31, 2012 - Traveled to Ozark, AL

We are traveling for home. It was our first all day rain traveling day. We landed here in this nice Ozark, AL campground as it was a good stopping time so we sort of lucked out. During our trip south we passed through Montgomery, Al and Maxwell Field where my Mom and Dad, Mary Lew and Jack Griffin, were married in April 24, 1943. I wished I would have realized that we were going to travel thru as it would have been fun to stop and visit. Something to look forward to. We also passed through Birmingham, AL where my Niece Gina Linden lives. We...

Apr 26, 2010 - Ozark, Alabama

We had to change our route to leave Dauphin Island on April 22nd. Our original route was by Mobile Bay Ferry across the mouth of Mobile Bay to Fort Morgan, east through Gulf Shores and Pensacola Florida, then northeast to Ozark. Unfortunately, Mobile Bay Ferry was not accepting RVs so we rerouted north up the west side of Mobile Bay to I-65 through Mobile northeast to Evergreen AL, then east through Enterprise AL to Ozark. We drove past our old home in Enterprise on the way through. Our stop in Ozark was to visit friends. After we were...

May 17, 2009 - Peanut Butter Mission

Cedar Key to Ozark, Alabama. Why? Princess can only eat the Kroger brand of peanut butter because is contains no additives.. "Contents: peanuts and salt." Additives in other brands cause problems. We had run out of the zillions of jars we bought on the way to Astor, so I did a Google search and found the closest Kroger to be in Ozark. Lesson learned.. wear my glasses when doing Google searches. The "Kroger" we found in Ozark turned out to be a Kroger Automotive. Bad news, no peanut butter (Elaine's journal comment.. ("David is still tired...

Nov 24, 2008 - Heroes and Martyrs

“The March Continues - Monday, November 24 From now on when anyone asks me to name the best experience of this, or any other trip, I will no longer have to equivocate. My automatic response will be, “Montgomery, Alabama”. That’s a strange answer for a Yankee who distrusts the south and could never feel at home here. But that is my answer and it probably always will be. There are days in our lives that shape and define us, and this was such a day for me. Back in 1955 Montgomery, Alabama was defined by a thirteen month Bus Boycott, a...
