May 2, 2012 - Texarkana, AR

We got underway at about 9:00 this morning and arrived at Sunrise RV Park in Texarkana, AR just before 4:00. The trip was OK but several areas of I-40 and I-30 are in urgent need of rebuilding. We did see some reconstruction underway, but there is much left to do. The campground is immediately off I-30 and designed for overnighters. The campsites are all gravel and arranged in an amphitheater setting. Kind of like a drive in movie theater arrangement. While it is not the most attractive campground, the utitilities are very good, including...

Dec 29, 2011 - at the corner

It was another long uneventful driving day just the way we like it. We had fun watching the thermometer inch up as we spent the day driving diagonally through Arkansas. We turned down the furnace and put our winter jackets away. Hopefully, they can stay in the closet although experience tells us that freezing temperatures invade even southern Texas in January. We are camped at a county fairground in Texarkana, a town which is half in Arkansas and half in Texas. The region is called ArkLaTex because the Louisiana border is a few miles away....

Oct 10, 2011 - Texarkana, Arkansas

We left the Mississippi River behind on a rare Saturday travel day and headed west to Little Rock, where I wanted to stop and visit with my step-mom, Syble. Unfortunately, she was in the hospital, but I did get to spend quite a bit of time with her, sharing memories of my Papa. We stayed at the KOA in North Little Rock which was close to the hospital. We had cable for Sunday football but did not have WiFi. -- ALERT FOR TOM: The KOA in North Little Rock had an ice cream parlor in the park office!!! Eat your heart out. (no cherries moobulie...

Pretty Damn Nice!

May 10, 2011 - Texarkana, Arkansas on route to Memphis

Stopped here at the Four States Fairground in Texarkana, AK on route to Little Rock and then Memphis. Only did about 235 miles today, got here about 3:00 PM real close to I30 for our next excursion tomorrow morning. Sometimes these county fairgrounds parks have good facilities close by and are great for overnight stop overs, this one has all services but we just need to plug in its hot and humid outside today. We are headed out soon to Big Jake's BBQ for dinner its only 5 minutes away and has rave reviews, will let you know how it tuns...

Apr 19, 2010 - Our Trip To Mountain View, Arkansas

It was a long day and we are both tired. But, Praise God, no truck or RV problems. The place is small and was a tight squeeze to get the RV just right, but Russ is doing a great job!! We'll go to bed early and leave in the AM. Bob one of the apartment residents was really sweet and let us park in one of his parking spaces. God is Good!!

Dec 29, 2009 - ArkLaTex

Everyone at last night's campground was headed toward the Rio Grande Valley as are we. We all watched the weather forecast for the route ahead and heard about ice pellets in the Texarkana area. As we all pulled up our hoses and prepared to hit the road this morning, there was serious discussion about the route and weather challenges. Some decided to continue heading south with the theory that whatever precipitation does fall, it would most likely be liquid rather than ice. We voted for the shorter route. And we were right. The temperature...

Jan 8, 2007 - Heading out to Arkansas

First day on the road for the new year and we are heading to Arkansas. As we headed North, Ken, who was taken to doing ALL the driving when we are towing, pulled off at a reststop for a 15 minute nap . . . at what turns out to be one of the First Roadside Rests in Texas . . . Made it to the border, staying on the Texas side of Texarkana in the KOA there for just one night.

Jul 13, 2006 - Texarkana, TX

Today was a special day. In all our travels, I don't believe Marty or I had ever made it into Arkansas. Today, we went from Louisiana, through the southwest corner of Arkansas, and just barely over the border into Texas. Actually, I think our KOA tonight sits on the state line. I'm not sure how well you can see the first picture, but that is water between the two lanes of traffic. For quite a distance, the freeway is raised on concrete pilings. It is obious from the water marks that the level changes considerably from time to time. I enjoy...

Mar 10, 2006 - To Texarkana

Today we made the short 3 hour trip to Texarkana, AR to spend the weekend with Leonard & Carol Suprenaut. We worked with them last year in Illinois and we enjoy their company. We got to the Four States Fairground about 12:30. Spent the rest of the day visiting and went and pigged out at a seafood buffet.

Jul 14, 2005 - Before Departure...

Well, it's finally today!! In about 24 hours, I will be leaving Los Angeles for an almost 13 hour flight to New Zealand. I'm excited!! Today, we went to get some little Texas souvenirs so I could use them as gifts when I get there. Haha...I got a book that's called "Speak Texan in 30 Minutes or Less" for the person who makes the most fun of the way I talk. It's quite intertaining, though...I'll probably end up reading the whole thing on the plane. Holly liked it so much that she wanted to get her own. I finally finished packing, too. I can...

Jun 18, 2005 - Euless to Texarkana

Our good friends, Brent (Bubba) and LouAnn Barker, have had a fifth wheel for some time and are veteran RVers. When we bought Homer (as the fifth wheel is affectionately known), we talked about taking a trip together and decided on Branson, Missouri. Sandy and I have visited Branson several times, and we always enjoyed ourselves immensely. The Barkers hadn't made the trip before, and LouAnn allowed how she would really like to go. Two of the Barker children—Jeff, 18, and BreAnn, 6, would be going, and we assured them they would have a...

Homer and the Hornet

Jan 6, 2005 - December 31 On the Road Again

We left Baileyton at 11:20 a.m. Driving along I-40 we soon crossed into the Central Time Zone. Traffic was light for several hours. The weather was starting to deteriorate -clouds filling the sky and intermittent showers were encountered. Lunch ended up at a rest along the interstate. Around 2:45 p.m. we passed through Nashville. In order to cover more territory we decided to stop at a Cracker Barrel for dinner. The Cracker Barrel in Jackson afforded a nice meal along with a needed respite from all the driving. The temperature was in the...
