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...

Local RV Trips

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...

Apr 5, 2008 - Little Rock

Clinton Library (by Diane) I feel like I should start by recusing myself from writing this article, given how I feel about the Clinton’s, but I don’t think anyone else is going to report on our stop here, so take what I say with a grain of salt. First, we arrived in Little Rock after a really nice drive in from Mississippi. The River was way over it’s banks. We have certainly found some really pretty back roads to travel on this journey. The RV park we stayed in was in North Little Rock, called the Trails End. How appropriate, due to the...

Apr 1, 2008 - Houston Update

I shopped Saturday night while Mel and his son went to another antique cruise at a nearby park. Sunday Ann's married daughters, Bridgette and Angela stopped over with their husband's and children. It was good to finally get to meet them. They have children the ages of my youngest grandkids and great grandkids. Of course they adorable kids and it was a pleasant visit. Monday we traveled to the new Bass Pro Shop in Pearland TX. Wow! It's the biggest one I've been it but it is still smaller than Cabela's in Dundee. Seen the biggest catfish...

Mar 20, 2008 - Elvis has left Red Bay!

We are currently 285 miles away from Red Bay! Hal-a-freaking-lujuh! I am quite happy. We are in Little Rock, AR and will visit the Clinton Library before continuing on to Fort Worth, TX, our next stop. Of course, we had excitement before leaving Tiffin. I was in the office checking out and Minnie decided to trick her grandpa and sneak off and hide. She will do that on a travel day. If you've packed up the RV, she knows what's going on. You may remember she did this in New Brunswick and Montreal. In Savannah, she tried to hitchhike in a...

Full Timing from CA

Mar 11, 2008 - preachy

i skip whole chapters in otherwise good books when they get all preachy about how we are destroying the earth and just how we are doing it and just how fast and what shits we are. i tell myself this is because i have a pretty damn good idea about what kind of shits we are and i'm already doing what i can. watching an inconvenient truth would just feel like picking a scab over and over agian. also like preaching to the choir, i'd rather hear and read about perspectives i'm not familiar with. which makes me writing this entry pretty ironic....

Feb 1, 2008 - Hot Springs National Park.

We stayed over at Camp Joseph Robinson, Arkansas National Guard Post, an extra night so we could see the local area. We drove southwest to Hot Springs National Park. A very active place, especilly since being discovered by the "white man" in the 1830's. However white men found it long before that. In the 1600's Cortez found and utilized the springs while on his journey around the southeast US after landing his ships in the Tampa Bay area on the Florida west coast. We returned to Camp Joseph Robinson in Little Rock for the night.

Nov 7, 2007 - Nashville, TN to Little Rock, AR

(Ron Writing) It was foggy and frosty this morning when we awoke. This was the first night we left the furnace on all night. We can keep warm without it but we wanted to make sure our plumbing system did not freeze. It only got down to 32° so it probably would have been okay without the heat. Today we continued our drive west on I-40 across Tennessee and Arkansas. We got to Memphis at about noon so decided to stop at Corky's BBQ for an early dinner. When we were in Memphis in 2005 we spent a day here touring Graceland and "discovered"...

Oct 31, 2007 - Little Rock

...dinner was outstanding!!! most amazing catfish. We d a lovely dinner and a great chat. Jimmy and Fran are amazing people - so friendly and interesting. We took about allsorts and they have had an interesting life, especailly Fran. I und her to be quite inspirational - she is so upbeat and positive about life and it hasn't been that easy for her. I am sure she wouldn't mind me saying this - I hope not anyway but she got married at 15 to basically improve her life andthen unfortunately it wasn't such a good marriage. She then lost her 19...

Oct 17, 2007 - Dodging tornadoes in Little Rock

The drive from Memphis to Little Rock was made enjoyable by our listening to the CD's of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It was made horrible by the scores of semis who tailgated each other and cut in front of us with inches to spare. The road was pretty good except for one awful stretch that seemed as if it had been laid on a washboard. Thank goodness, it eventually smoothed out. We decided to stay at Willow Beach CoE park just outside of Little Rock which is really nice. This morning, it was threatening rain when we left to get gas,...

Two Hams in a Can

Oct 15, 2007 - Here we are in Little Rock....

We made the 340 mile trip from Sedalia, MO. down here to Little Rock, AR. in fine shape. Arrived last night about 3:30pm. Decided to forego our stop in Branson. It is so crowded there and we need to get on to South TX to our Brand New Lot ASAP. Several of our friends are already there. However we would NEVER ever think of passing anywhere close to Little Rock without stopping to see our good ole Buddies and former RV'n companions, Louis and Janette Hughes, ....... We SURE miss them out here with us. They had to give up RV'ing about 2 years...

Mike & Pats Travels

Aug 10, 2007 - Little Rock, Arkansas

Today we traveled only 84 miles to Maumelle Park just outside Little Rock. We arrived around noon so we quickly set up camp and then had lunch at my picnic table. This is a very nice Corps of Engineers project on the Little Maumelle River. Our campsites are a short walk from the river. We'll be here for three nights. After lunch we drove downtown where we visited the Historic Arkansas Museum. We viewed a short video before beginning our tour. There are five galleries. Currently there are special exhibitions of cameras and eyewear. There...
