Nov 14, 2006 - Spending Time in Russellville, Fayetteville, Cabot and Maumelle

October 30 - November 5 - We moved the RV into Russellville to Outdoor Living Center, our Newmar dealer where we purchased this rig, to have some work done. Mainly to have a new driver-side windshield put in. The windshield was not in yet, so after they completed some other minor work we took the RV over to the OLC RV park where our state Razorback Newmar Kountry Klub chapter will hold a rally this coming Thursday thru Sunday. The windshield installers came by Tuesday morning to do the installation. The process did not take long and the...

Turney Travels 2007

Nov 10, 2006 - Little Rock, AR - Wow, What a Great Town!

Little Rock is a great town, we visited Randy's brother and family; Tim, Sheila and Jennifer, Angel is now living in Georgia working and attending college. We stayed a couple of nights at the Army Corp of Eng's park called "Maumelle". It is located a few minutes NW of town on Hwy 10 on the Arkansas River, it was very quite and hugh campsite spots. We went siteseeing to "The Old Mill" in North Little Rock which is a quaint spot with trees and flowers which surround the old stone mill. I believe this location was part of the opening seen from...

Nov 4, 2006 - Little Rock, AR

We made it to Little Rock, home of the Bill Clinton Presidential Center and Library. I'm afraid all we have time for is 5 loads of laundry. We are off to Shreveport, LA tomorrow and then Huntsville Texas here we come. Rod's Dad, Paul, has a dear friend that he worked with for many many years. Guy and JoAnne have a place near Huntsville, TX and we are looking forward to spending some time with them!

Oct 22, 2006 - Little Rock - Enjoy, but don't inhale

We arrived at this city in the south on a Sunday. Not the best idea really. This part of the country is pretty much the belly button of the bible belt and even some of the gas stations were closed! Fortunately we needed some time to catch up with laundry, grocery shopping etc so our first day wasn't a total loss. Little Rock's newest and most controvertial building is the Clinton Library. It is apparently traditional for former Presidents to have libraries built to house documents relating to their term in office and as a general research...

Oct 19, 2006 - Little Rock, Arkansas

What can you say about Oklahoma, other than we passed through it. Left early in the morning and covered more miles than any day so far. Wind was not a problem today, but we didn't see much sun. We are staying in a KOA, which is fairly nice except for the site they put us in. They must just have built it, slab is brand new, but the area around it is fresh soil, which after the rain is a red clay mud field. I stepped off the pad and sank several inches. The wet clay sticks to everything and I may have used a couple of choice words. I had to...

Sep 23, 2006 - Little Rock, AR

Well, it's time to move on again - destination Little Rock, AR. We have never been to Arkansas, so thought we would check it out a bit. There's been rain and storms in the forecast, so we started a bit late. Thankfully, we did, because we were about 1 hour behind heavy rains all the way. In fact in Northeastern AR there was some bad flooding. In one place, a campground was flooded & campers were overturned & ruined. That's very frightening. We found a nice campground in North Little Rock at Burns Park. It is the largest city park in the...

Sep 21, 2006 - Clinton Library

Rode bikes around the park before heading to Little Rock, AR. Went to the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock. Very impressive exhibit and a architecturally beautiful building. We especially enjoyed the full-size replicas of the Cabinet Room and Oval Office as it looked while Clinton was President. President Clinton sat behind a massive oak desk, called the Resolute desk, which was made from the timbers of H.M.S. Resolute, an abandoned British ship discovered by an American vessel and returned to the Queen of England as a token of...

Jun 23, 2006 - Toad Suck - I am not making this up!

Our next stop was the much anticipated Toad Suck Ferry COE park. How could you not stay at a place called Toad Suck? We really love this park. It's right on the Arkansas River next to the locks. . It's very great and HUGE trees are everywhere. If we hadn't already used some of our time waiting on the house closing, we would have stayed longer here. Toad Suck apparently was named because of some drinking rivermen who were sucking booze from bottles until they were as swollen as toads. Yes, those are wild strawberries growing right out in...

Not fun....anyone know any home remedies that work? Going from Wichita to Kansas City and Topeka for next few days. See the photos for our good times.... Bob and Kristen

Jun 10, 2006 - Little Rock, Arkansas

**No Pictures this time** Saturday, June 10, we drove to Little Rock, Arkansas, about a two-hour drive. Arrived at the Trails End RV Park, mid-afternoon. The last two days and today are getting hot and humid. At least this campground had some good shade to park under. Sunday, June 11, went to the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum. On Sundays it opens at 1:00 pm and closes at 5:00 pm. We were there shortly after it opened and we stayed until they were asking people to leave. There are a lot of things to look at. Here are...

Apr 22, 2006 - Little Rock, Arkansas

We have traveled over a thousand miles, and this is the first RV park to have working WIFI, so I'm typing this from our living room. You know you are in the south when the town names are wierd, like Pickles Gap and Bee Branch, and there's even a Toad Suck Park (no kidding). On the way down here, we saw a lake with trees growing in it (Bill thinks they are cypress trees). The roses are all in full bloom, as if it were June. The RV park we are staying at is almost nirvana - I give it a solid nine out of ten points. It has a pool, hot tub, an...
