Oct 24, 2008 - Little Rock, AR

The drive from Nashville to Little Rock, AK was long, but uneventful (we’re now west of the Mississippi!). Gas prices continued to drop as we drove west and we actually were able to fill up at $2.35/gallon while in Little Rock – wow, what a change from just six months ago on our way east across the country! We found another cheap, beautiful campground just outside the city (only $18/night – woo hoo!) and the weather continued to be gorgeous for our drive home. On Friday we visited the William J. Clinton presidential library in downtown...

Oct 15, 2008 - WOW !!!! 4 months later..............

SORRY I have been so neglectful in keeping this site up. My last post was June 16th, nearly 4 months ago. That was when we arrived at our place in the Black Hills of South Dakota and just a few days after my son Scotts funeral. I hope you all have been keeping up with my Blog, as I publish it every Sunday morning. A clickable link to that Blog was in my last post...... We departed from our place on Sept 20th and went to a Teton Rally in Rapid City at Hart Ranch RV Resort, from there we went to Lincoln, Nebraska and visited with Ann our...

Oct 3, 2008 - Day 41 - Arkansas

The capitol of Arkansas is beautiful like so many of the other state capitols. Expansive lawns, beautiful gardens, well-crafted buildings, but there was something lurking just under the surface - you could almost feel it. Of course the Clinton's are prominent in Little Rock, from main boulevards named after them to the Pres. Clinton Library. And I guess as you would expect Barack Obama signs and campaign headquarters are prominent as well. A side-track for a moment, on our website www.biblicalstoryteller.com I posted an article several...

Sep 7, 2008 - Arkansas

Hi Friends, Well we traveled a long way today because we really couldn't find a very good place to stay. The campgrounds in Arkansas are not real great. We had planned to stop in Little Rock but our boy Jim just wanted to keep moving. We have stopped tonight about 50 miles from Memphis in a campground that we thought was to be a KOA. The campground is next to a super 8 motel and is rather run down. If we weren't so tired we would have continued to travel. We hope to be back home tomorrow afternoon. We look forward to seeing all of our...

Sep 3, 2008 - DOG IRON RANCH

September 3, 2008 – Wednesday: We survived the night with the awnings intact, but this morning we got dressed and then brought all three slides in to protect the awnings. We may have a great trailer, but it’s still just a fancy Conestoga wagon and really vulnerable to the weather. The weather reports for going east were not that good, predicting worse weather than we were having in Oologah. So we stayed put. About mid-morning the wind and rain let up for a bit and we went over to look at the ranch house. Will Rogers’ parents built the...

Cheyenne Days

Jun 26, 2008 - Little Rock

Little Rock Arkansas...what can we say, we are in the land of Big Skin Bayou and of course Little Skin Bayou. We drove by a sign that said Toad Suck Park. We were tempted but didn't stop. Ask Syd about his Hog Wild Sundae. We have seen many church buildings along the way but the Pentcostal Church in North Little Rock takes the prize. It rivals St. Peters in Rome.

Jun 1, 2008 - Bill-Ville

I set my alarm for 5:15 but as usual I awake before the alarm goes off at 4:30 and can’t go back to sleep, oh well. I pack my stuff, say my fare-thee-wells and set off just after 6. The sun hasn’t come over the horizon but it’s humid! It’s Sunday morning and there is no one on the roads which I am pleased about because I have to go through a few toll booths and driving through Houston can be exciting, intimidating and interesting all at the same time. I make it to Route 59 A-OK (thanks to my GPS) and this road will take me right to my...

May 30, 2008 - Around Town

We spent a leisurely day taking in some of the sights that Little Rock has to offer including the River Market area, Clinton Library and the McArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History. The River Market area is located downtown and is full of shops, restaurants and bars. Unfortunately we had just missed the areas 'big' event, Riverfest, which is held every Memorial Day weekend. The event draws over 200,000 attendees and features live music, food and vendors. ( and yes, we've put it on the list for a future visit ) This is an area that is...

May 26, 2008 - Burns Park, North Little Rock

We reluctantly left our 'river front home' and headed out down the road today. Our drive was right at 120 miles - heres some quick math - 120 miles divided by 7.9 mpg = 15.8 gallons....15.8 gallons x $4.64 = $70.48!! Wow!!! It makes us wonder how the truck drivers manage to stay in business ( and no wonder that the cost of EVERYTHING is going up!!! ) We will be staying here at Burns Park, which is run by the city of North Little Rock, for the next 6 days. We will be taking in the Capitol, the Clinton Library ( Ken says he's going but won't...

May 11, 2008 - Little Rock, AR

We left Viki and Bill on Sunday, Mother's Day, May 11th, and continued north taking I-40 back to Hwy. 65 toward Missouri. Just a few miles north of Little Rock, I think it was Conway, we saw so much tornado damage from storms the week before. There was a lovely Baptist Church that was demolished and several slabs where homes once stood. It was heartbreaking. We continued driving through the devastation and I said a prayer for the people in this community. We drove for 7 hours or so and ended up staying the night in a Wal-Mart parking lot...

Apr 25, 2008 - Our First Oriole of the Year

What a great night's sleep! We are so blessed to be able to sleep well in DunnGone (the name of our motorhome, in case you forgot). After a couple of cups of great French pressed coffee, we walked the entire campground, and it is spectacular. DunnGone was not on a premium site, but all sites in the park are well maintained with lots of space in between. During our walk, we observed the many different motor homes and RVs and, of course, many different towed (toads) vehicles. We’re in the market for a toad and we are inherently interested...

Apr 23, 2008 - Little Rock State Capitol - Arkansas

Well we have been putting the miles under us. Today we were in Little Rock, Arkansas. It was kind of cloudy and muggy today. We went to the State Capitol and managed to tag along with a 5th grade classes field trip tour of the Capitol. They were actually pretty well behaved. We have run in to a few that were not. This is another beautiful Capitol with marvelous frescos and lots of marble. The chandelier hanging in the dome is the same style that Salt Lake City has hanging in their Capitol. The tour guide also told us that the light bulbs...
