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.

Today we walked over the Clinton Presidential Bridge from the campground to the museum. We took a guided tour of the library which we really enjoyed.They also had a Peanuts-Charlie Brown exhibit in the Center's gallery where they have different exhibits during the year. We completed the tour with lunch in their dining room-very good.

Nov 6, 2014 - Heifer international center

Nous nous sommes réveillés à une super belle journée ensoleillée, température dans les 70°F, pas de nuage dans le ciel. Après le petit déjeuner nous avons quitté la roulotte et nous sommes partis à pince sur le pont piétonnier pour aller visiter le Centre International Heifer, un organisme humanitaire qui cherche à contrer la faim dans le monde. Nous ne connaissions pas cet organisme et nous avons trouvé fort instructive et fort intéressante, malgré la centaine d'élèves sur place qui comme nous faisaient la visite. Nous avons quitter le...

Nov 5, 2014 - It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring...

De la pluie intense pour toute la journée, nous avons décidé d'aller au cinéma, nous voulions voir Fury, mais le projecteur de cette salle était défectueux, nous nous sommes contenté de: "Before I go to sleep." avec la belle Nicole Kidman, qui ne rajeuni pas. Un thriller assez bizarre. Demain on annonce du beau temps. Je vous laisse un "break" de photos pour aujourd'hui.

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...
