We went to yet another great Corps of Engineers campground after leaving Rogers, this one near Fort Smith. We found several tourist things to do in Fort Smith while we were there. First stop was the Fort Smith Visitor center, which just happens to be located in the former "Miss Laura's Social Club". Miss Laura's is the first former bordello to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Before picking up our brochures on the area, we took a tour of the Miss Laura's. Back in the day, Miss Laura’s was on what was known as “The Row”...Jump to full entry

This has been another rainy day. Thankfully, we got just about everything disconnected this morning and ready to go before the rain started. The only thing we got to do in the rain was hitch up the car. It was only drizzling at the time, so it definitely could have been worse. We made our way off the mountain.

As far as I can tell there’s not much reason to be on this section of 309 unless visiting the...Jump to full entry

We drove on and decided to stop in Oklahoma City. We had lunch and made a stop for Kitty supplies at Petsmart. Florian also got our “pet tag” for Livianna in case she gets lost! We decided for another try at the Zoo before moving on. This one was much bigger but really somewhat overwhelming and mostly shut down for winter (HA HA). We saw some sea lions, seals and had a brief look at some butterflies in their butterfly garden. They had meercats but we didn’t get to hang out and observe… Livi loved the jungle gym so much that we had to bribe...Jump to full entry
