May 16, 2017 - Maumelle Campground - Corps of Engineers

Today was a short drive—just over 100 miles. We stopped at Taziki’s in Little Rock for lunch: one of our favorite places. After that, it was only about 5 miles here to Maumelle Campground, a Corps of Engineers campground on the Arkansas River. Our campsite is right on the river and has some shade. It also had a flock of Canada Geese when we came in. They apparently didn’t care for the company and sailed on up the river. A couple of Mockingbirds have been hanging around all afternoon providing lots of music. Tomorrow will be the last driving...

Apr 24, 2017 - Bentonville to Little Rock, AR

April 24, 2017 We were up and first in the MB service queue by 7:15. Fortunately they had a Sprinter service man who could work on the rig to replace the belts and early replacement of brake pads ( we don’t want any more MB stops!). Crystal Bridges did not open until 11:00 although they have a lovely library that opens at 10:00. The MB folks drove us to the museum. We were in Bentonville and the museum almost exactly 3 years ago. Amongst other things added since we were here is the Bachman-Wilson Frank Lloyd Wright House. It is particularly...

Nov 20, 2016 - Maumelle Park, Little Rock, AR

Saturday, November 19 We left fairly early this morning headed for Crowley’s Ridge State Park where we are camped now. This small park is lovely, and we seem to be the only campers in it just now. One of the perks of traveling late into the fall. The downside is that it is edging down near freezing at night. We’ve been very comfortable, though. Between the little electric heater when we are plugged in to the grid or the RV propane furnace when we are not, it stays toasty inside. The country side changed dramatically about halfway through...

Oct 4, 2016 - Now Where Was I?

Oh yes, Arkansas. I visited the William J. Clinton Library in Little Rock and had a wonderful two hour (maybe longer) tour. Larry declined to join me. I think he thought he might have to read.I know many of you are Republicans so I won't list his accomplishments like rescuing Bosnia, taking the cratered economy and ending with a budget surplus, making welfare more responsible and on and on. But you won't like it if I say those things so I'll just say it was a beautiful museum and I loved it a lot. Oh and yes, his impeachment is in there. If...

Sep 29, 2016 - Hot and I Do Mean HOT Springs

I'm writing this a couple of days late so there will some past tense. I hope I can maintain my tense throughout, Beth and Anitra. I really liked Hot Springs, Arkansas. There was much more to see and do than I was prepared for. There was history and natural sights, not to mention the glorious spas. As we were leaving, I asked Larry if he would come back and he said, "Only if it is on my way to somewhere else." As the navigator I can tell you, I-30 will become as common to us as I-40 is now. Our campsite was lovely. We were in a national...

Sep 15, 2016 - Little Rock

IN 1954 the Supreme Court mandates desegregation with "all deliberate speed." In 1957, Sept 4, nine Negro students tried to attend the all while Little Rock Central High School. They were barred from entering. It was not until Sept 23rd that the Little rock Nine entered the school. Riots ensue and the students leave school by a side entrance. On Sept. 24th President Eisenhower federalized the Arkansas National Guard and sends 1,200 soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division to Little Rock. On the 25th the nine students re-enter school. The...

Jun 28, 2016 - Little Rock, Arkansas

We are getting cooked with all of the heat and humidity we have experienced since leaving Amarillo. We have had several days in the mid to upper 90's with 60 to 65% humidity. So, that being said, we are heading back west to the cooler climes - at least drier air. Colorado, here we come! We stopped in Little Rock AFB at the FamCamp for tonight. Leaving tomorrow -- short trip to Fort Smith. Later!

Where RV This Year?

Mar 14, 2016 - Cool weather and Redbud trees

Great day for traveling. Sunny and mild as we left Livingston, TX and made our way north east on U.S. 59 toward Texarkana. The air bag alarm seems to have a problem with a relay and buzzes off and on until it warms up. Plenty green grass and trees blooming in colors of pink and white, but no wildflowers. The rivers and streams we crossed were still swollen from the heavy rains that caused severe flooding in Texas and Louisiana. I-10 and I-20 East are closed due to high water. We traveled three hundred miles for this day and fueled up at the...

Feb 24, 2016 - Getting away, day 3

Finally in Memphis, Tennessee we saw the first signs of spring. Daffodils daring to get to bloom even though there is still the chance of night frost. Today we encountered rainy weather and heavy winds for half of the day but temperatures are continuing to climb. We are making good progress but are still staying in winter mode.

Nov 16, 2015 - Teacher Tipster

Last night we had a quick pit stop in Little Rock so I could visit Teacher Tipster today. For those who don't know of him, it's a teacher in Arkansas who puts videos and hints on the Internet for teachers to use in their classroom. I've been using his ideas for a while and have had great success with his tips. He always says oh I just do this in my morning routine and I wanted to see this routine as I couldn't figure out how he fits everything into the day! I must say I'm pretty stuffed from spending most of the day at school. I have lost...

Sep 25, 2015 - Oklahoma City National Memorial, Humbling Experience

This morning we road back into Oklahoma City to see the National Memorial. This brings tears to your eyes. They have chairs set up to represent people that died on each floor. It was sad seeing how many children were killed. The story of the events are well told in the museum. You start the day just like any other day. Then while you are sitting in a recorded meeting across the street, you hear the bomb go off and the panic of people.
