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...

Jul 21, 2007 - Little Rock Arkansas - Wine Tour

After stopping in Fort Smith and Van Buran, Arkansas we headed toward Little Rock. Along the way, we saw a bunch of signs for some wineries so we decided to get off and check them out. Stopped in Altus, AK, the wine capital of Arkansas. First stop was Weirderkflt Winery. Tasted some of their wine (not impressed with the Merlot, but the Sangria was real good) then decided to check out the others. Stopped at Post Familie Winery. This place had some cool grape vines hanging over the entrance way--found out later that this particular grape is...

Great Lakes 2007

May 20, 2007 - Little Rock , Arkansas

The next day we went to Little Rock , Arkansas. We went to the William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Library . We had to go through a metal detector before we could tour the place. Clinton's has a penthouse on top of the building and they sometimes stay there when in town. We had a great time looking at all the things that were given to them from heads of state. Stormy and I was looking all over the building for the cat house , you remember "BOOTS " the cat. Gary and Norma were looking at the presidential office, when they saw some...

Apr 25, 2007 - Hot Springs N.P AR to Little Rock AR

Next it was off to Garvan Woodland Gardens which I had read about on another RTA users blog. I was amazed at how cool the Anthony Chapel looked and, when I saw it in person, I was blown away by it. What an awesome place, just a shame that the doors were locked, but I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. I was actually really impressed with the whole place and it was only my desire to press on and get to Little Rock that dragged me away. I, like everyone, has seen Forrest Gump and, being a Brit, not all of the 'historical...

Apr 23, 2007 - Little Rock, Arkansas

Burns Park is one of the largest city parks in the nation. It is unbelievable! It includes 23 soccer fields, three dozen tennis courts, softball fields, batting cages, picnic areas, archery range, fish pond, a huge children's amusement park/play area, 18 hole golf course, bocce ball courts, walking trails, a dog park, and a covered bridge. And if that isn't enough, the park is located on the Arkansas River which will allow access for fishing. Hidden away in a North Little Rock subdivision is the Old Mill. It was built by a real estate...

Apr 10, 2007 - Memphis to Little Rock

Text Sunday 8th April Another state today - Arkansas - but it's pronounced Arkansaw - now Kansas is pronounced - Kansas - so why the hell is Arkansas pronounced differently? And, the roads - almost as bad as Poland - rutted, uneven and potholed- and - the State welcome centre is closed when we pull in on Sunday morning - not very welcoming!! As most of you will know this is the state that produced Bill Clinton, his home town is Little Rock. Now that's a strange title for a place - even if the rock was little, you would not admit to it -...

Nov 28, 2006 - Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site

In September 1957 Little Rock’s Central High School became a crucial battlefield in the struggle for civil rights. The nation saw nine black students attempt to enter the previously all-white school. National Guard troops blocked their entrance. Three weeks later, after negotiations between Arkansas Governor Orval E Faubus and President Dwight D Eisenhower failed to resolve the stalemate, Eisenhower called the Army’s 101st Airborne Division to escort and protect the nine students entering the school. The legal case that followed would reach...

Nov 27, 2006 - Little Rock, Arkansas, President Clinton's Center, Central High School, MacArthur Military History, and The Old Mill

Monday-Tuesday, November 27-28, 2006 Monday, November 27, 2006 After we left our site at 10:06 am, we stopped at the Park's office to take back the gate cards and received $10.00 back from our fees. It was cloudy but nice. We discovered our newly installed temperature/compass gage was not working. It was sort of sad to leave Branson because it was nice to be in one spot for two weeks and we really liked the town. The people were friendly, the site was inexpensive, we had nice weather, and there was a lot to do, but we were off to new sites...
