Oct 19, 2011 - almost home

This morning it was cloudy and windy when we left Benton on our way to Little Rock. As we drove away from Benton it began to rain and continued until Dyersburg, TN. We had stopped in Dyersburg to change drivers since Bob doesn’t drive over high bridges and wide bodies of water and we had to cross the Mississippi about 15 miles west of Dyersburg. While we were stopped, we received a phone call from Enterprise’s investigative company asking questions about the accident. The investigator made it sound like there was going to be a claim against...

Oct 19, 2011 - Busy Day In Little Rock

This morning we toured the William J Clinton Presidential Library (www.clintonlibrary.gov), we didn't care too much for the museum, the people here call the building a double wide on stilts. The best part of the museum was a display of Nathan Sawaya's Lego art (brickartist.com). While at Wal-Mart Mary got her hair cut, when we got back home I dyed her hair so she is a good looking red head once again. Little Rock is the home town of General Douglas MacArthur so we went to see the McArthur Museum Arkansas Military History...

Oct 18, 2011 - Little Rock

Stopping for the night in Little Rock, Arkansas, after an uneventful drive through the rain and wind. I feel as if I must be building some great arm muscles as I fight to keep Clyde on the road against some of the wind gusts we drove through today! We are headed down to visit with my parents for the weekend and then will continue on to Livingston, Texas, to take care of few obligations there. We anticipate being in Livingston for about a week before going on to stay with some of our Texas friends for a few days. Happy Travels, Rebecca

Oct 18, 2011 - Great Get Togather

Woke up at 2AM this morning to a great thunder and lightning storm then it continued on with rain on and off the rest of the day, the high for the day was 52F with a stiff breeze so to say it was chilly out would be an under statement. Met with Dennis, Mary and their grand daughter Michelle for a late breakfast at the Waffle House then we all came over to our place for visit and kill some time before they caught their flight back to California. We finished off the day at the laundromat and of course we stopped at a thrift store on the way...

Oct 17, 2011 - Beautiful Drive Through The Ozarks

Up early and out of Branson by 8AM, beautiful drive through the Ozarks especially with the fall colors in full display. It's only 175 miles to Little Rock but most of the trip is up and down the mountains mixed in with a large portion of 35MPH twists and turns. We are parked at the Downtown RV Park right on the north bank of the Arkansas river overlooking the Clinton Presidential Center and the downtown Little Rock skyline. After getting set up, a quick bowl of soup and getting freshened up we drove over to Dennis and Mary's motel room for...

Oct 15, 2011 - Little Rock Arkansas

In order to make up some lost time, we drove 320 miles to Little Rock (we normally only drive 150 to 200 miles a day), we stayed in a very nice RV park along side the Arkansas river and across from downtown Little Rock, very nice view especially at night.

Oct 13, 2011 - Little Rock, AR

10-13-11 Little Rock, AR Thursday, we did manage to see about a dozen antelope during a long day. It was hot and we had strong winds all the way to Amarillo, TX. Friday was much more pleasant and we arrived in Oklahoma City. Would you believe Oklahoma decided to end their 14 month drought just for us?! We had over two inches of rain both Saturday and Sunday, so we just sat it out. We may have more days of rain at home, but it is much calmer! Monday, was much better and we got to do a walk. Tuesday was even better, so we did a nicer walk in...

Oct 13, 2011 - Sassy Arkansas

Well I guess hangin' around with the old Pathfinder can rub off on ya. Yesterday we left Oklahoma City and headed for Little Rock. I had made plans for us to overnight in a KOA just outside of town. Now those of you who are familiar with KOAs know what a roll of the dice this can be. One can be a wonderful experience, with great staff, location and amenities...or it could be the entrance to hell...snarling staff, lousy location, absent amenities (notice the alliteration?)and overpriced to boot. You just never know. So we are tooling down...

We stopped for one night in Little Rock as a layover. I don't know, but two of our credit card companies thought that Little Rock is a bad place, they denied our credit card. When the first card got denied we used the second one. Then 10 minutes later it got frozen and they sent us an email telling we had possible fraud on the card. There was no fraud, they were all our charges. The rv park was right on the river and we had a nice setting.

Sep 13, 2011 - I-40 East

September 11 – 13 Having ended our time in New Mexico our focus was now on Memphis, Tennessee. The only problem was that Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas were in the way which meant a large amount of driving over 3 days. Now I don’t have anything against those 3 States and I’m sure they have many wonderful things to see and do, they’re just not on the trip agenda unless something jumps out at us as a ‘must see’. As the I-90 was our main drive westward, the I-40 has become our main drive eastward. The interest is in seeing the changing scenery...

Jul 29, 2011 - OTRA - AR - Little Rock

Wow, did we get off early (for us!) this morning ! 9:00 a.m. Another nice drive -- part interstates I-20, I-30 and I-430, and part “red” roads where we got to go through a few smaller towns on our 5 1/2-hour drive to Little Rock, Arkansas. WELCOME TO ARKANSAS: 11:45 We can add this state to the map the grandgirls gave us now. Pulled into the Maumelle Corps of Engineers Park early this afternoon. It was a long driving day but we’ve decided if we want to get to the east coast, we’d better get a move on. Had a 20-minute fuel,...

Jun 27, 2011 - Memphis, TN

Arrived at Graceland at 10:00 AM for our 10:30 tour. It was already very hot outside, and unfortunately the folks at Graceland seem to be a little less than organized. You arrive at the Graceland visitor center and then catch a shuttle bus that takes you across Elvis Presley Blvd to his mansion. We finally got on our shuttle at 11:30. The house is very unique with carpeted walls and ceilings. The stairway that leads to the basement has mirrored walls and ceiling with illuminated stairs. Diane's favorite room was the living room with...
