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...

Aug 29, 2013 - Little Rock AR - Maumelle COE Campground

This campground has a feature you don’t see every day in a campground – sites reserved especially for campers who are having medical treatments at the University of Arkansas Medical Center here in Little Rock. That’s a really good deal, since the sites have all utilities and you aren’t restricted to a 14-day stay limit. Several campers were taking advantage of it. One woman, for example, was undergoing chemotherapy and she and her husband were camping in the park. If you’re a camper and you’re going to be sick, guess Arkansas is the place...

Retired at Last!

Aug 28, 2013 - Little Rock, Arkansas

Well, if we thought the drive from Branson to Eureka Springs was tricky then the drive from Eureka Springs to Little Rock was even trickier! It turns out the Arkansas has no interstate that goes north to south, so we were on a U.S. highway that was barely a road in spots. Our 3 1/2 hour drive really took some skills going through towns that barely had 2 lanes with no shoulder on the road and curbs lining the lanes. Scary stuff in places, for sure! Add some hills to this plus 18 wheelers and it was almost a party! NOT! We were thrilled when...

Jun 1, 2013 - Little Rock & Arkansas River

We had some trouble with the truck, so we took a while to get started on our northward trek. My computer died in the middle of nowhere Mississippi, and the new one has Windows 8, which need not have been developed. What is good is no better than Windows 7, and what is bad is so blasted complicated that I can't label or crop my pictures yet. Anyway, we spent a week at Maumelle Park on the Arkansas River. While we were there, we went in to Little Rock for a few hours. We were amazed with the city, and found a lovely park as we walked along.

May 12, 2013 - Little Rock & rolling on

On Thursday we crossed the border into Arkansas and found this little lake with a dam and a very tranquil park where we paused and took some pictures. Beautiful little place. Then on to Bentonville or maybe it should be called Walmartville. half the town is dedicated to Walmart head offices and ware houses etc. We went to visit the Walmart visitor center which is housed in the original 5 and 10 cent store where Sam Walton started his first store in 1952. Walmart was started by Sam and his brother Bud in 1962. Walmart now has 8970 stores in...

Mar 26, 2013 - Little Rock, Arkansas

This is a two day entry.......Yesterday I had a 24 hour bug but we did visit the Oklahoma City Memorial. That was so surreal with the chairs that had lights inside the seats in reflect the victims names. There were 19 small chairs representing the children that lost their lives during the bombing. Now on to today..... hold on you democrats ......we enjoyed the William J. Clinton Library ( for you republicans) that's Slick Willie..... Whoa! It was amazing! After going through that beautiful library I wanted to buy a "I Love You Bill" button....

Jan 31, 2013 - Little Rock, Arkansas

We left Branson early this morning for our four hour drive to Little Rock, Arkansas. It was a hilly drive through the Ozark Mountains with lots of climbing, but the mountain scenery made it worth it. Highway 65 takes you through a lot of little towns, it was fun seeing the towns except for the roads with the close curbs to watch out for. (see photo) This went on for miles. :-) We stopped for diesel in Clinton, Arkansas, at $3.79 gallon times 75 with a total of $284.00. Yikes! This is why we have learned to stay in places for a month at a...

Oct 25, 2012 - Little Rock Arkansas (all things Clinton)

Today we had a very nice 45 km ride along both sides of the Arkansas River, with a side trip to Two Rivers Island. The trail was in very good shape, mostly flat except for the climb onto one of the longest pedestrian/bicycle bridges in the US. The bridge was built over the dam and locks, and allows you to do both sides of the river. Two Rivers Island had a few homes, but very few cars, and was full of bike paths. We saw a young male deer, a heron, 2 snowy egrets and a turtle. After our ride, we came back to the RV park, then walked across...
