Aug 1, 2019 - August 1, 2019 – Stillwater, Oklahoma to Tunica, Mississippi

August 1, 2019 – Stillwater, Oklahoma to Tunica, Mississippi I was on the road at 6:30 this morning. I managed to get the slides in and the rest of the things put in the car before it began to rain. I ran through rain off and on until Muskogee. After that, it sprinkled on me a couple of times, but it didn’t amount to much. Getting through Tulsa was interesting. They have closed a 3-4 mile stretch of the major highway I was traveling. There are do detour signs. This is a limited access road so I had to wander around Tulsa until I got far...

Dec 4, 2014 - On The Road Again

Well we have finally left to begin our travels again. We have both asking each other....What were we thinking? We didn't plan very well or think about how cold it was going to be for the first couple of days, or the fact that we wouldn't be able to get into an RV Park until we got far enough south where they are still open. Oh well live and learn. We started out on Dec. 2 by having breakfast with Miss Madddie (our granddaughter who is not happy about us leaving again)and then taking her to school. Lorraine and Tim Dutcher came over and...

Our drive today was short, but we touched 3 states – Arkansas, Tennessee, and Mississippi. After crossing the Mississippi River, we drove down the US 61, the Great River Road, to Tunica, MS and Harrah’s Casino. It is a huge complex with 3 hotels, a convention center, country club, and a big kid’s activity center in addition to the casino all located on hundreds of acres along the river. The Rv Park has about 200 sites with concrete pads, patios, and some trees. There’s regular shuttle service to the casino and hotels. It’s really a pretty...

Jul 23, 2013 - Sun Studios, Beale Street, and Tunica

July 23, 2013-Today we visited Sun Studios. Once again, the Heartbreak Hotel was the place to be to catch the Sun Studios shuttle. This shuttle picks you up and drops you off to Sun Studios where you can take the tour, then take the shuttle to other locations like the Rock and Soul Hall of Fame and Beale Street. The Sun Studios tour was a hoot, enhanced by the enthusiasm of our tour guide. She was so into her tour that she made all of us excited. The Sun Studio tour includes playing some of the old recordings made in the studio, then we get...

Dec 3, 2012 - Visit to oldest working hand pulled Ferry

It was a nice day so we took a Bike ride to Los Ebanos Texas where the oldest operational had pulled Ferry is, it carries 2 cars at a time for the 100 yard ride across the Rio Grande, it's a way for the people on the US side to visit their relatives in Mexico. We didn't get a picture of the Boarder Entry on either side but they were there. The area around Los Ebanos looks like you are in Mexico, very poor. The guy at the Ferry Fee Booth charged us $1 ea to walk down to the Ferry, when we came back up the Boarder Patrol yelled at us to check...

The past week flew by, we have been back to Mexico to get a few things, had a great lunch, the restaurant is on the second floor, great food,service and price, you also feel safer there being off the street, they also have best Margaritas in town.

Went to lunch with our neighbor, they took us to a new place, called Riverside Club, it sits on the Rio Grande so you are within throwing distance from Mexico. We noticed...

Nov 22, 2012 - South Padre Island

Saturday Nov 17 went to South Padre to have lunch at Dirty Al's, we love the huge Gulf Shrimp they serve. Was a great day for a ride on the Bike, we made a big circle, went down on the Expressway and came back on a road that follows the Mexican boarder. On Monday Nov. 19th went to Mexico to check on our medicine, can get it a lot cheaper there plus if we are getting close to our donut hole with Humana we can get meds there and not have it turned into Humana, thousands of US and Canadian retires travel here for this purpose and to get...

Nov 19, 2012 - Day 7 & 8 - Tunica, Mississippi

Leaving Cave-In Rock, we were unable to take the ferry across the Ohio River because it was so foggy that they couldn't run the ferry. We had to drive about an hour out of our way to get to a bridge and when we crossed it, it was still extremely foggy so we would have still been waiting for the ferry. We finally stopped at a McDonald's for a quick breakfast and used the free WiFi to locate a Guy Fieri BBQ restaurant in Memphis for lunch. When we arrived, we found that it didn't open until 4! So we had a rough trip to Tunica! We arrived in...

Nov 12, 2012 - Looking for birds in the area

Road around the area coast to see these birds, they are so pretty and graceful. It was very cool today, around 69 or 71 with strong wind. Not sure of the names of these birds yet, haven't gotten a book on them, hope to go to the National Refuge tomorrow. Tuesday 6th we visited the National Refuge, wish it had been a better day, very windy and cold plus I still didn't feel that great. Real nice Workampers at the visitor center, one lady was from Montana and the other from Oregon. There were quite a lot of Whooping Crans but they were too far...

Nov 11, 2012 - Port Arcansas and Mustang Island

We visited Mustang Island today, rode a Ferry from Aransas Pass to Largest town on Mustang Island, Port Aransas, it took all of 4 or 5 minutes. It was very windy, the picture of the water shows how rough the Gulf Of Mexico was. On the way back to campground we rode by the Historic Fulton Mansion,built in 1877 noteworthy architectural style, unique construction methods and advanced mechanical systems — which featured gas lighting, central heating and indoor plumbing with hot and cold running water. The house sits about a block off the water,...
