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 - 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...

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 3, 2011 - Little Rock, Arkansas

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...

Jun 9, 2011 - North Little Rock ARKANSAS

North Little Rock Today we leave Oklahoma for North Little Rock. We are well rested after our two nights stay here TERRA Starr. We were able to relax, do some swimming and just plain enjoy the area. We have had a smooth ride through Oklahoma on the I-40. This is the first time we travel east of Oklahoma City on this route. In the past we are always headed northeast out of Oklahoma City to go to Missouri. The route to Missouri is more sheep and oil country, while the route headed outof Oklahoma City is beautiful flat productive farmland. It...

Apr 26, 2011 - Wow what a day and night

If you have been following the weather we are right in it. Little Rock Arkansas. Huge storms and tornadoes last evening. When the sirens went off we scurried to the bathrooms at the campground. Nice cement building and hung out with folks in the women's room. There were equal numbers in the men's room. Golf ball size hail. No damage that we can see. Limbs down in the next site. We are right on the Arkansas river and it is high but still in its banks. The forecast is no better for today. There is no way for us to escape the storms coming...

Apr 2, 2011 - Little Rock, AR

Today we rode our bikes the entire 17 mile loop stopping along the way to see the 4 parks we passed through and stopping for lunch in downtown Little Rock. It was a fairly level trail with a few hills - the worst was the dam when we had to ride uphill for at least a quarter mile. Oh well, we definitely got a cardio workout on that section! We had a wonderful day and couldn't have asked for better weather - sunny with highs in the 70s. A perfect last day on the road. Tomorrow we drive the 4 hours to home.

Apr 1, 2011 - Drive to Little Rock, AR, Submarine

Drove to Little Rock, AR today. We got parked and the RV set up in time to ride the bikes along the River Trail into Little Rock for a late lunch. The bike trail starts at the RV park we are staying in and makes a 17 mile loop along the river on the north side then crosses at a dam, goes along the south side of the river, across another bridge and back to our RV park. Today we crossed the river on an old railroad life bridge. The bridge is no longer used by the railroad and has to stay in the lifted position so barges, etc can pass...
