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...

Tales of Blue Aweigh

Apr 19, 2012 - Little Rock

Sunday left Hurricane Mills about 7.30am, long drive ahead of us to Maumelle Park in Little Rock. We have booked to stay there for 4 nights. The journey took 6 hours with stops for fuel & breakfast very windy along the open roads you could feel it pulling the RV across the lanes. Arrived at 1.30pm lovely campground and we are parked alongside the Arkansas River we have met up with a group of people we met in Breaux Bridges, Louisana two years ago I had kept in contact with Brenda who is one of the group. It is lovely to see Brenda & Harold...

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...

Moving On With Life

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...

Moving On With Life

Oct 21, 2011 - The Fog Comes in on Little Cat's Feet

We stopped over for a night at the Willow Beach Corps of Engineers park just NE of Little Rock. We have stayed here before, and every time we stop, I wish we had more time. The park is so nice - big wide sites, beautifully wooded and yet we can still get satellite signal. Lots of wildlife for Madison - a couple of years ago, she was after the armadillos who live in the brush behind the site, and I swear when she got out this time, she remembered that they were here because she took out after the same place. But unfortunately we do have a...

Two Hams in a Can

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 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...

Retirement Rocks!!

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 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
