May 26, 2019 - Eureka Springs, Arkansas

It is our last day in Eureka Springs. The weather is great. We hear the motorcycles passing the campground. It is time to ride. We go back to Beaver Dam. We turn onto Dam Site Road. Our campground host recommended it. Today is just about the ride. There is little picture taking – just riding. John sees Dam Site Loop. Go for it. We twist and turn, not really sure where we are. It is a loop. We are eventually back on Dam Site Road. Dam Site Road ends. I tell John to take a right on Indian Creek Road. We find our way back to good old Route...

It is air conditioning weather. We get on the road early. Our loop today takes us to the Beaver Dam. At our campground, we turn left instead of right on Route 187. It is a pleasant ride through the Ozarks. The road twists and turns but nothing severe. We arrive at Beaver Dam which was constructed on the White River and created Beaver Lake. Our first stop is the scenic overlook. We watch as other bikers cross the dam. We are not alone! After crossing the dam we turn right on a road that takes us to the bottom of the dam. No tours! The road...

John has rehydrated. He is feeling like his normal self. We head to town on the motorcycle. It is still 3 ½ miles and ten minutes, even on the motorcycle. We drive the historic loop. This would have been awful in the RV. Most people use the trolley. Parking is very limited. We stop at the Crescent Gazebo. There is a spring here. There are springs all over town. We stop at the Crescent Hotel. It is a large Victorian Hotel. Like everyone else, we take pictures. After completing the loop once, we return to the downtown area. We find a parking...

We are still hanging out at the campground. Sometimes when on a road trip, we have to stop and deal with life. John has not been drinking enough water. He has a urinary tract infection. That is my diagnoses but Arkansas doesn’t recognize my medical degree. Our morning: Call the doctor, find out where he can get lab work done here, call the doctor, call the hospital. At 1:00 he gets his lab work done. The lab work is done at the Eureka Springs Hospital. It’s in town – 3 ½ miles, ten minutes. Everyone has been very helpful. Next: Find the...

We know it is going to be a rainy afternoon. We take the RV to town for breakfast. It is 3 ½ miles to town and it normally takes ten minutes. Need I say any more about the road? There is a Drive With Care warning sign. Our campground host recommends Myrtie Mae’s Restaurant for breakfast. It is great. We have time after breakfast to do our grocery shopping. The grocery store in town has everything we need. We consider driving the historic loop through town but the rain is starting. We drive the 3 ½ miles back to our park. Again, it takes ten...

I study the map. I was originally planning on driving north on route 71. It follows the train route. I show the map to John. “How about this route?” If we go twenty miles east on the Interstate, we can take Route 23 straight north to Eureka Springs. Perfect! Route 23 is marked scenic. Of course every north/south route in this part of the state is marked scenic. We exit the Interstate after twenty minutes and turn north. I see the sign. This is the Pig Trail Scenic Byway. “John, this is a motorcycle route!” Thank goodness we have our new...

Sep 23, 2018 - Last two days in Eureka Springs

Saturday morning and we were supposed to go to Conway for the Apraxia Walk. But, it had rained and stormed a little during the night and was still raining when we bounced out of bed. We concluded it would be too hard a drive in the rain and fog to try and go to Conway. We knew the walk had been moved inside and knew it would not be what we had participated in the past few years. So we set up for college football...for all day. We would not move the truck all day. Now with the rain the temperature had dropped dramatically. The low was about...

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...
