Mar 26, 2015 - Ruston, LA

Janet found us a campground in a nice town park that is very scenic and comfortable. We will not be here long enough to appreciate it fully. We are in the woods on a lake. We had the pick of campsites, which is good because I needed one with satellite reception for basketball. With trees overhead, I found one with the driveway facing south and the satellite dish lined up through an opening in the trees! We also put away our shorts! It is chilly here!

Apr 29, 2013 - Alexandria

Ruston, LA. Alexandria Zoological Park First opened to the public in 1926. It is a small zoo, home to about 500 animals. The zoo was started with discarded pets such as rabbits, goats, and deer and grew from there. It has four themed habitat areas. All were very well done with lots of shade and nice plantings. The paths were well-laid out. We especially liked the Louisiana Habitat which features the plants, animals, architecture, industry and culture of Louisiana. The naturalistic exhibits depict the marshes, swamps, and uplands of the...

Remember the Alamo

Apr 23, 2012 - Ruston, Louisiana

This will be very brief. Since we have never stayed in Louisiana, we decided to spend a few nights at a wonderful little parish [county] park. It was fun to be in a real “campground” again with a little lake, lots of ducks and trees, and a fire ring at our site. Fortunately there was one last pull-thru we could fit into when we arrived. For the first 12 hours there was a heavy rain storm. It has been well over a year since we have had rain this heavy; it was so foreign to our ears that we had trouble sleeping. Once the storm passed, we had...

Oct 15, 2010 - Louisiana

We have been communication-less since leaving Arkansas. No wi-fi, no aircard and no phone - but a beautiful county park in Ruston, LA with a view of the lake and gorgeous weather. From Ruston we drove here to Marksville, LA and are parked at one of the most beautiful RV resorts we've been to up to this point, Paragon RV Resort. All pull-thrus, level and huge cement patios. Our phone works here but not our AT&T card. A trip to the nearest AT&T store found the tower has been down for months, so I am now on the park's pay-for internet which...

Sullivan's Travels

Feb 23, 2010 - Repair side trip

We changed plans and headed south again toward Shreveport, Louisiana to get the motorhome battery system checked. Had a delightful experience with the left exits on the freeways while trying to get out of Little Rock. We had quite a tour as we missed a few exits this morning. Finally turned on the darn GPS and got out of town. We drove Arkansas from north to south. The entire state looks the same as Alabama -- trees and swamps. I suppose it's because of hurricane evacuations that the roads are 4 lane and in excellant condition. Maybe it...

Sep 7, 2009 - Sept. 4-10, 2009 Ruston, LA

Lincoln parish Park Really nice county/parish park. We backed up to a lake that was decent sized and the lake had walking and biking trails around it. Our site was big enough for us but was one of the only sites we could fit in. We met our neighbors, Robert and Barbara, on Friday when we arrived and found out they were locals who were just here for the Labor Day weekend. As it turned out Bob and I went out fishing and Boating with Robert Saturday and Sunday and had a blast. Robert took us to D'Arbonne Lake the first day and we tooled...

May 15, 2008 - Ruston,LA Bonnie & Clyde

Bonnie and Clyde had a bad day in Ruston, LA. The B & C Museum is located in the café where Bonnie and Clyde bought their last lunch. On display were the old newspaper reports, pictures, letters and mementoes from their life. It also had two original films of the eventful day. The highlight of the museum was the curator. His father was one of the lawmen on the ambush site. He had many stories to tell. The ambush site was down the road 7 miles from the museum.

Apr 5, 2008 - Natchez Trace - On the Road Again!

Saturday, April 5 Walmart in Ruston, LA Heading Out After Seven Weeks in Red Bay – On the Road Again! Jonathan had spent the night with Ricky last night so when we got up, we started getting the rig ready to go. Vickie had baked banana bread yesterday and sent some home with us so we wouldn't have to deal with making breakfast this morning. That was nice and the bread was good! I even made myself a cup of chai. I walked over and visited for a little while. Tom was cleaning the front windows so we would be able to have a nice view of Natchez...

Jan 10, 2006 - Choudrant, Lousiana

The photo posted here was taken before we left Texas for Louisiana, it is close to Quinlan. It appears to be a residence as there is a mailbox at the driveway and we have seen a pickup there. This must be one of the space ships that didn't go to Roswell. We traveled to Choudrant to get the motorhome's air leaks sealed and a leveling jack repaired. The sealing has made a big difference in maintaining a comfortable temperature.
