Sep 21, 2018 - Thursday and Friday in Eureka Springs

Thursday we felt slow. Slow to get up, slow to get around, slow on Ziva's morning walk, slow to eat breakfast, slow to get dressed...just slow. We just stayed around and took it easy but slowly. There were a couple of walks with Ziva but that was about the extent of what we did until late in the afternoon I packed up everything. Rain was in the forecast and it is easier to put everything up dry. After I got everything stashed, I came inside to get cleaned up and ready to go to the Ozark Mountain Hoe-Down. We had not seen this show in 28 -...

Sep 19, 2018 - Three Busy Days..

Monday started slowly. We had been up watching movies until later Sunday night so we were in no hurry to get around. We did get up and make sure Ziva had her early morning walk. Then we had breakfast and paced ourselves slowly. We spent a couple of hours working on where we need to go next week. We are going to the Mountain Home area on Lake Norfork. We are staying on an island campground accessed by a causeway. It is the Cranfield Park COE campground. We then made sure we had reservations for our first ghost tour. We were going to the...

Sep 16, 2018 - Slow weekend in the mountains

Saturday arrives. WooHoo...college football day. I started with GameDay as I had breakfast and then moved outside to watch the underbelly television and drink coffee. That way I got to enjoy being outside, watching GameDay and drinking coffee. I stayed out there until after 11:00 when the sun became too much to see the television. I then moved inside to watch football and decide what was needed from the store. I got out and went to the store here in Eureka Springs. It is a small independent store and most of the prices are really high. I...

Sep 14, 2018 - Out and Around

We have spent the last two days out and around. Ziva has been with us on one of the outings and has suffered on the other outings. But, we have tried to find something to keep her entertained while we are out of the Bus. We have purchased a subscription to Dog TV. The first day she was not very interested. On day two she was much more receptive. I got one picture of her in the drivers seat watching the television. Since she is so intense at times I can only assume that is why she is so focused on what is on the television. To show some of...

Sep 12, 2018 - Finally, a one shirt day

Wow, what a difference a week and 180 miles make. I took Ziva on her walk and it was 60 degrees. Oh, YES...I can live much better with that type weather. Today we took it easy again. There was nothing pressing so we took it easy most all day. The biggest excitement was that we had a motorhome pull in next to us about noon. I never saw the temperature get above 78 degrees. We got out later this afternoon just to drive around town. We went up by the Crescent and are trying to decide if we want to take the Ghost Tour before we leave. We went...

Sep 11, 2018 - On the Road Again...finally

Monday we woke up to get started in Travel Mode. Since we had not really moved in three weeks we had to start from scratch to get started. Getting around meant eating a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit and then getting ready. Take down the two satellite systems, pack up all the cable and this was in addition to the normal breakdown checklist...and then now deciding what was going into the back of the Canyon instead of under the Bus. Also, the weather had turned off cool so the tires had to be checked and aired up to the target tire pressure....

Nov 2, 2016 - Eureka Springs, Arkansas

We sat out by the fire this morning having coffee which I love to do, then decided to tackle washing the RV since it's rare they let you do it at the parks. Then we hit the road to check out some sights, first stop was Christ of the Ozarks which sets off the road about 2 miles and stand 67 feet in the air really awesome sight, next stop I wanted coffee and they have a Thrift Store/coffee shop/medical center we stopped at for coffee and it was the best caramel macchiato I have had in a long time, the thrift store sponsors the free medical...

Nov 1, 2016 - Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Today we took off to hit a couple tourist spots, first stop along the way was crossing what the people here call Little Golden Gate Bridge, it is a one lane bridge so you have to watch to oncoming traffic and it's wooden so it was a little scary to me. We drove along the back roads coming into a town called Rogers, Buddy is looking for new hunting boots so we hit Walmart, Cabela's and Academy Sports, no luck so we ended up downtown Bentonville where Walmart originated, Sam Walton started in this spot with a Ben Franklins store, and now they...

Oct 31, 2016 - Travel day

Woke up early for some reason so we sat drinking coffee and watching the news and saw a newsman that used to be on Fox news named Rob Evans and he is now up here in Arkansas. All packed and on the road around 7:40 it was 57 degrees we traveled along Hwy 64 to Hwy 62 we stopped at a local gas station to get coffee and they made homemade donuts so of course we had to try one, YUMMY (not going to lose weight this way) back on the road stopping around 11:00 for lunch since the donut didn't last long, we stopped at Cattlemen's Restaurant which...

Oct 23, 2016 - Eureka Springs, Sunday the 23rd

Since we have 3 long days of driving ahead of us, we decided to let someone else do the driving today, and we took a tram tour of the area. Our tour guide explained that Eureka Springs was originally known for its healing springs, much like Hot Springs. But the springs here were always cold, not hot, and in the 1970’s they were all shut down for bacterial reasons. Now the town is a huge tourist attraction for its Victorian style, numerous fairs and other events. The downtown area is bustling with shops, B&B’s and spas. The fall colors are...

Oct 22, 2016 - Eureka Springs, Saturday the 22nd

We lost a few hours this morning, waiting to move the rig to our other site in the campground. We’re still not quite sure why they made us do that. We had to wait until all the departing campers left (after 11am) so that we had enough room to maneuver around. It’s pretty tight in here, and only one lane for both directions! We only had time to do a little sightseeing this afternoon. I loved the angled corner downtown, so that was my favorite photo today. We also stopped at the other glass and wood chapel, but it wasn’t nearly as pretty as...

Oct 21, 2016 - Eureka Springs, AR

We made it to Eureka Springs at around 3pm. The campground is so busy that we had to take a temporary site for tonight, and we have to move into another site tomorrow (after the folks in it leave). It’s a pain to have to move, but we have no choice. It’s the weekend and they have many groups staying here: A senior bikers group, a wedding party, and a number of Ontario folks who are probably heading south for the winter. It’s so nice to be in a real campground! We are in the Ozarks, in the NW corner of the state. We hope to take in some of...
