Aug 2, 2014 - Arkansas

Arkansas is deep in history dating back to the Louisiana Purchase. Arkansas became the 25th state in 1836 but split with Missouri during the Civil War and joined the Confederacy. The Mississippi River is the east border of the state with West Memphis being its major port. The Ozark mountains are located in the northwest corner of the state and provide an abundance of recreational opportunities and awe inspiring beauty. Our first stay was at Tom Sawyer RV Park right on the Mississippi. We could just look right out our windshield and view the...

Our 2014 Summer Trip

May 14, 2014 - Little Rock, AR

Eerie! When we woke up this morning it was definitely eerie- silence- no wind- NONE! We drove off to Little Rock- Dan with a smile on his face the whole trip. There was a little rain here and there, but we enjoyed it. As we crossed western Oklahoma and eastern Arkansas we finally saw some creeks with actual water in them (though often still and scummy). Then we crossed several rivers with lots of water and passed a couple of large lakes that looked to be almost full. It was interesting in that it seemed to happen so suddenly- no water then...

Apr 23, 2014 - Day 3 - Lebanon, TN to Little Rock

Day 3 dawned bright and EARLY! Okay, that may be different by my standards than yours, but it was early for us! It has been a beautiful day with bright sun and GORGEOUS green-leafed trees. The land was gently rolling at first then settled out to be flat as far as we could see. Most fields were being set up for planting (we assume) and it looks like the land is dry so we saw lots of irrigation machinery too. Interstate 40 is very good road in Eastern Tennessee.......and then we hit Western Tennessee and Arkansas. Oh my, oh my! On our last...

Apr 22, 2014 - Fort Smith to Little Rock, AR

April 22, 2014 First time we have been disappointed with a Costco prepared meal. I actually tasted the Zinfandel Beef in the store. The meal was primarily a very tasty sauce with carrots and mushrooms, no meat! Oh well, perhaps a bad batch! Woke up to a beautiful morning with the geese. Headed down Hwy 40 to Little Rock. Lovely drive through forested rolling hills. We arrived at the Clinton Museum about 11:30 with little trouble finding the spot. It is in North Little Rock (just a little west of downtown) on the Arkansas River. The area has...

Apr 12, 2014 - The rest of our Little Rock visit - Apr 2014

We were here in Little Rock for only 3 days, but we sure saw a lot! We took advantage of all the public transportation. We did not drive the car once. We also hoofed it a lot too. We visited the Heifer International Center. This group is dedicated to teaching communities abroad how to grow their own food and make it sustainable. We visited President Clinton's Library again. Always a treat. Since our last visit, the River Market area has gown up a lot starting with the wetlands just below Clinton's Library. This are is a huge park and flows...

Apr 12, 2014 - Capital - Little Rock, AR - Apr 2014

The "Old State House Museum is the oldest standing state capitol building west of the Mississippi River. Construction on the building began in 1833 and was declared complete in 1842." When Arkansas became a state in 1836, government officials moved into the new building, despite ongoing construction. The State House served as the state capitol until 1911, when construction was completed enough to start occupying a new capital building. The Old State House became a museum in 1947. Today's capital building construction was started in 1899...

Dec 7, 2013 - Little Rock AR

12/7 We get up really early in Amarillo TX. We clean up have Breakfast and are on the road by 0500 headed east on I-40, It was 7 degrees when I woke up. We reach Oklahoma before sun rise. Through Oklahoma City early afternoon. Then it went bad, the remains of Cleon were every where cars and trucks off the road and abandoned every where and ice still on the road. We end up in a long line of trucks and a few cars going the best we can but at times that is only about 30. Driving I am kind of used to but not driving an RV pulling a van on a...

Oct 29, 2013 - Clinton Presidential Center

Nous avons eu une très belle journée aujourd'hui, température dans les 25°C ou 80°F, pas trop humide, une bonne brise et un peu de brouillard ce matin sur la rivière Arkansas. Après une bonne nuit de sommeil, malgré la proximité des autoroutes 30 et 40 et après un bon petit déjeuner nous sommes partis, Agnès et moi, vers le "Clinton Presidential park Bridge" ou le pont piétonnier qui nous amène dans le parc de l'autre coté de la rivière et à la "Clinton library". On y a passé une excellente journée, l'endroit est le repositoire de toutes...

Oct 28, 2013 - Little Rock, AR

Petite journée tranquille, nous nous sommes levés ce matin avec du brouillard sur le "Old man River", on ne voyait même pas de l'autre coté du fleuve. Le départ c'est fait vers 10h30, on a eu la visite d'un voisin qui venait du Manitoba et on a jasé jusqu'à ce que je lui dise que la route nous attendait. Nous avons parcouru 130 milles sur la I40 qui a beaucoup de construction mais nous avons été chanceux pas de pare choc à pare choc, donc après 2h15 de route on arrivait au Downtown Riverside RV Park, un camping municipal, pas cher, sur le...

Oct 6, 2013 - Nashville, TN to Little Rock, AR

(Sandi writing) We left Nashville in some heavy rain, but the skies cleared as we headed west. It was 90 degrees in Nashville yesterday and it's 60 this morning! We ran into our first freeway traffic delay, but it only lasted for about 30 minutes. Along the highway, still in Tennessee, we were amazed at the growth of these vines covering the trees. At times, you could use your imagination and see different formations...sorry the picture is blurry, but you get the idea. We drove to downtown Little Rock and had dinner at the Flying Fish in...
