Apr 17, 2010 - Circus City, USA

Hugo, Oklahoma is also known as Circus City, USA because it is the winter home of the Carson and Barnes Circus, as well as other circuses. One of the most unusual attractions is the cemetery.

Jun 10, 2007 - Just like Willie, we're on the road again

We left Bardwell Sunday morning and head for Kiamichi campground, a CoE park just on the south east corner of Oklahoma. We had stayed there a couple of years ago and it makes a nice, short first day trip since we're on the road again for the first time since May 20th. We found this spot to stay overnight where we did not have to unhitch. There was no one else in the loop Madison had a good time running around smelling all the smells.
