Jul 5, 2012 - Sightseeing

It was a cool 85 degrees when we left our motorhome this morning to walk across a railroad bridge converted to a pedestrian walkway. Our destination was the Clinton Presidential Library. Jerry and I are getting close to seeing them all. We enjoyed the Clinton Library. The events of the 90s are still fairly fresh in our memories which made it a good experience. A highlight was sitting at a conference table in a replicated Cabinet Room. You could choose an issue and follow the path it took to get something done on it. We've seen so much...

RV Trip Summer 2012

Jul 4, 2012 - Fireworks in Little Rock

Wednesday, July 4th we drove another 200 miles. After leaving Vicksburg, we crossed the Mississippi and entered Louisiana. We soon turned off the interstate onto a US highway and drove north into Arkansas and on to our destination of Little Rock. I was not looking forward to the drive because we went on the same road in October 2009 and I found it depressing. Many of the towns are dying and there were scores of train cars seemingly abandoned on the tracks running along side the highway. Some good news - the train cars have been removed....

RV Trip Summer 2012

Jun 4, 2012 - President Clinton Library

Today we went to the President Clinton Library/Museum. It is one of the 11 libraries in the Presidential Library System. All Presidents since FDR must raise the money to have their library built, the decision as to what is put on display in the libraries has to be approved by the National Archives Committee. Once the library is built and open it is then turned over to the Federal Government to run. In the case of President Clinton only 5% of the artifacts and papers are actually on display. The balance is stored in a huge warehouse. This...

Jun 3, 2012 - Little Rock, Arkansas

We made it to Little Rock yesterday. We are staying in an Army Corps of Engineers Park on the Arkansas River in Little Rock. It is about a 20 minute drive downtown. This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in and is only $13.00 a night. There is a concrete pad we are parked on and plenty of room for the car. There is also a gravel patio with a large picnic table. The sites are huge with plenty of space between. There are also trees for shade. We have excellent cell service and our Virgin Mobile Wifi is working very well. It's proving...

May 13, 2012 - Mother's Day in Arkansas

May 12 – We picked up Audrey at 11am and headed for the Marlsgate Plantation. On the way we stopped at the Scott Plantation and toured the old buildings. Since the Marlsgate Plantation was having a wedding we just drove past and took pictures of the mansion. The cypress trees were growing across the road from the house. We stopped to eat at the Cotham Restaurant made famous by President Bill Clinton eating there. Then on to the Toltec Mounds State Park an impressive archeological site that attracted national interest for over 100 years...

2012 travel

May 12, 2012 - Willow Beach COE Park

May 9, 2012 We found Willow Beach COE Park about 5 miles from the Little Rock airport. It is a beautiful site with large cottonwood trees and LOTS of Orioles, Cardinals, Scarlet Tanagers, Robins, etc. We are on the waterfront and the sight is paved and very level. We are parked between two big rigs– one owned by a Baptist minister and the other owned by a Methodist minister. Even without the Catholic priest I feel we are covered well. Today is a wonderful day with no clouds and that makes me happy because we are in tornado alley. The...

2012 travel

Apr 23, 2012 - Arkansas

Scenic Byway 7 is just that, scenic. We meandered through small towns with very little in population but certainly lots of beauty as we passed each overlook. Lots of dense greenery abounded with a big skyline as we looked down in the valleys of Arkansas from the high plateaus. We made a stop in Petit Jean State Park and took a 5.5 mile hike to the picturesque Cedar Falls. The trail was not crowded meandered along the river and ended at the falls. The park is a decent size with some nice stone camping cabins; quite decadent considering that...

Wandering America

Apr 16, 2012 - Arrive Little Rock, Arkansas

Une autre belle journee. Pas aussi chaud, dans les 20-22 celcius. En arrivant a Nashville, le ciel se couvrait pas mal et on s'attendait a toute une averse. Ca durer 5 minutes. Une fois le Tennessee traverser, on est entrer en Arkansas. Route sans cote et assez bien entretenue. Un peu comme traverser la Sask. On est arrive vers 1830 h, mais on a reculer l'horloge d'une heure. Demain depart pour Abilene, Texas. Stats: Vitesse de croisiere - 120 kilometres sur le cruise (avec des pointes de 140 pour depasser mes amoureux de la ligne...

Apr 12, 2012 - Headin North

Thursday, April 12, 2012 Hey Travlin Fans, the horse is smelling the barn and getting anxious to see the green pastures of Kane Lake. We had planned on heading from Tallahassee to Gulf Shores, Alabama and spending several days there at Gulf State Park near the beach. However, we woke up last Sunday and said “ta heck with it, let’s head home.” So we packed up and headed north. We trucked for 2 days and got to Little Rock, Arkansas. We decided to stop for a couple days and check out the Clinton Presidential Library. We enjoyed going thru it...

Apr 9, 2012 - Life Goes On

Well, life does go on. Since our last update in this near dorment journal life has been mostly about doctor's appointments along with a couple of hospital stays. The good news, without going into detail about any of that is that I am now cancer free. The last hospital stay was to stent a blocked kidney and that happened a month ago and I am now getting recouperated from that. It sure takes a while to get your strength back after having two major surgeries within a few months time. Anyway, we are so thankful to be on the road to good health...

Jan 15, 2012 - Our New Lifestyle

It is now mid January and I have completed three rounds of chemo. The process calls for one session using two different chemicals the first week; one session using one chemical and steroids the second week; and then having lab work only the third week. Then start the process over again. The first session is the worst, and by the second of third day following it I am at my lowest. Each of the three sessions so far have ended with me being either hospitalized or back in the oncology unit for fluid supplements. I spent nine days out of the...
