Apr 8, 2013 - RV Repairs (Springdale, AR)

We were awakened by the sound of thunder at 3:00 this morning. The bedroom window beside Marilyn’s head was open but there was no rain yet so we enjoyed the distant thunder. Then a gentle pitter patter of raindrops on the roof. Still, we left the window open. The sound of thunder grew closer and then the rain began in earnest. We closed the window! By the time we got up to have coffee, the rain had stopped and it didn’t take long to get ready to go. We pulled in at Wheels RV about 10 minutes before 9:00 AM, when they officially open. After...

Jun 22, 2011 - We are in Arkansas

We slept poorly last night in our separate beds and sometime early in the morning Marilyn crawled in beside me, crying softy. I held her for awhile, not saying anything, and she was ok after a bit. We finally got up around 4:00. Marilyn fixed a pot of coffee and the small pot made a cup for each of us. We sipped that as we talked about the fact that our favorite cups are now gone forever, but we’ll continue to have our morning coffee together, no matter what. We dressed and packed up to leave. Before 6:30 we were seated at Cracker Barrel...

May 1, 2010 - Springdale, AR - Smokin' in the Ozarks

Susan Here - I wrote all this once before, but lost the internet connection. Here goes again - Lou is at the BBQ contest, in the same hotel we are staying, Holiday Inn of Springdale AR. I was going to go to Fayetteville to the Farmer's Market this morning, but realized that we don't have a fridge until Monday, so no reason to buy fresh veggies. I also thought about going to a knit shop in Fayetteville, but I really don't need any more yarn right now. So I am going to enjoy a few hours by myself, something that does not happen very often. I...

Oct 22, 2008 - Spring Valley, Arkansas

When we left Branson the goal was to find a nice place to spend the night in Arkansas. After looking in the Escapees book we found the perfect location in Pilgrims Rest RV Park. It's just off hwy 412 about 14 miles East of Springdale, AR. We found the park to be a nice little park with gregarious personnel staffing the office. The park is only three years new and well designed.

Jul 23, 2006 - Springdale, Arkansas

This was a maintenance stop, as the motorhome developed a small coolant leak. Given the hot spell at the time in the central US (Temperatures of 100+), I decided to stop and get it repaired. Turned out to be a nice break while waiting for the part. One night in Springdale (crappy RV Park) then we moved to Beaver Lake Campground. A nice little campground near the lake, with a pool. Bailey and I chilled out, swam, went bowling, to the movies, etc. We left the RV with the dealer, and drove to St Louis when Gail's Dad died.

Jul 17, 2006 - Claremore, OK to Springdale, AR

Leaving before sunrise was the plan. The day's forecast was for the temperature to break one hundred and it did hit 103 degrees, when we arrived in Siloam Springs, Arkansas on the Oklahoma border. The rolling hills of NE Oklahoma are a warning that the Ozarks will not be easy. Several longer climbs reminded us of what is coming. With the week's forecast to remain at this level, the word is 'hydrate', while not pushing ourselves too much. For today, we were joined by Gus' brother, Ed, a physician. He was a great addition to the team for our...

Jun 30, 2006 - Beaver Lake - Rogers, AR

Awright. Danny told me that Prairie Creek is the nicest area of Beaver Lake. I guess I didn't notice on reserveusa that they don't have WATER for the campsites! There was one spigot, shared by all the campsites, about 200 yards from my camper. I should also mention here for future reference that Arkansas doesn't have any straight roads. With all that said, our campsite was nice and large and easy to get to. The lake was a short 1/4 mile walk or a 4 mile drive - depending on how much stuff you wanted to take. We started off the trip with a...

Sep 4, 2005 - Razorback RoadHogs

Week One: We arrived at our Razorback RoadHog RV Park on Thursday, September 1 after spending almost two weeks at our "home" park (our RV port at our former home in Cabot). We enjoyed our time there visiting with our son T.J. and his family. Also got to visit with my mother and sister in Little Rock. The Razorback RoadHog park is unique in the Southeast Conference (and possibly all of college football). It provides parking for all of the RVing boosters and has concrete pads, paved streets, water and electric service, and of course, a dump...
