Apr 17, 2014 - Oklahoma City for a Spell

Pretty strong winds were on the menu for weather so we hit the road early. We have an hour time change too as we get into Central Time. We weren't too far east of Tucumcari when the Tire Pressure Monitor was beeping a low tire on the Jeep. We pulled off at a truck stop; they had no air, but Joe can use the air from the motor home and he topped off the tire. We made a few stops and had lunch and rolled into Flying J with 40 gallons of fuel to spare. We always like to top up before going into the RV park, especially when the coach is going to...

Apr 9, 2014 - Oklahoma City, OK

Our week in Georgetown, Texas just flew by as usual. We had a fun time with Roy and his family. Obviously the highlight of this trip was meeting his new granddaughter, Aurora Rhea Lucy. She's a beautiful little girl who's bringing lots of joy to our family already! One day while Roy and Margie were working we drove over to Marble Falls to meet Mike and Mary Ella. As always, we had a great time catching up with them. Once full-time RVers like us, they had settled down in Kingsland but now they've purchased another RV and will be hitting the...

Mar 30, 2014 - Oklahoma City, OK

We are in Oklahoma City for the night. We've decided to skip Wichita tomorrow, and head for Salina, which is another full day's drive. We will have at least one more night on the road after Salina. With the bad weather predicted for Denver on Thursday, we are going to make sure we get home before it hits. This OKC campground makes fresh pizzas, so I get this evening off from cooking. Woohoo! The wind here is pretty strong today. The guy in the rig that checked into this campground right before us says that he lost his awning and vent covers...

Mar 20, 2014 - Back to OKC

We drove Grant back to OKC today. Robert is having minor surgery on Friday at the VA hospital, so it made sense to drive rather fly Grant back. We met Brad and Trisha at Olive Garden for dinner. Grant was working, so he talked to his manager… we got our entire meal paid for! Yeah for Grant! It was so good to see how hard he was working. He seemed so grown up and responsible. It made me very proud. We got a room at the La Quinta, since they accept dogs. The only room they had available was a suite. It was bigger than our entire RV. The dogs...

Mar 20, 2014 - Oklahoma City, Choctaw, OK

Uneventful day today. Drove from Amarillo, TX to just east of Oklahoma City, OK. Our GPS friend did try to take us off I-40 for some reason when we first got on. Funny, when we didn't want to be on it, it would try to take us on it. Today we wanted to stay on it for awhile and it kept trying to take us off it, when it didn't make sense to do it that way. Finally decided to get off it (when it made sense to do so) and take a more scenic, shorter route. More vegetation in Oklahoma, and more trees, but still sort of flat, with some up and down...

Mar 14, 2014 - Preparing to Leave OKC

We spent the day getting ready to move to Glen Rose, TX. Robert cut his hair on the step outside to keep the loose hair from getting in the trailer. The dogs were so cute sitting on the steps watching him. They were really good and stayed inside the trailer even though they were really sure that Robert needed help. Annette groomed the dogs for us. They looked like Ewoks before. She said that it was a good thing that she knew how to de-ewok puppies! It's so nice to have their hair short. It is so much easier to keep looking nice. Brad and...

Jan 25, 2014 - Day 5 - RV Retrieval Mission

We only had 257 miles to go today. It was the hardest day yet. There was construction for 10 miles of one lane with concrete barriers on each side. Only about 2 feet of clearance. Robert had a blow out on one of the tires on the fifth wheel. It was close to Elk City, OK. I was very grateful that Robert was driving rather than me. I am not sure I would have been able to keep it under control. We called Sam's roadside assistance. They came and put on the spare tire and we were back on the road within 30 minutes. We have waited on the side of...

Jan 21, 2014 - Day 1 - RV retrieval mission

Our RV's are in Corona, CA. It is cheaper to fly into San Diego and drive one hour to Corona than it is to fly into Oakland and rent a car. We flew through Las Vegas and arrived at 11am. This was a very busy day! Here is the run down: 1) Leave OKC on 6:30am flight and arrive in San Diego at 10:30am. 2) Pick up rental car at the airport 3) Drive 1 1/2 hours to Corona, California 4) Pick up my parent's motorhome from the repair shop 5) Drove the Motorhome and the rental car to Glen Ivy RV Park. 6) Pick up our truck, car dolly and 5th wheel...

Jan 20, 2014 - Day before the RV retrieval Mission

The day was spent getting ready to fly to San Diego to pick up our 5th wheel and my parent's motor home. We packed and had dinner with Marc & Annette at Fuzzy Tacos. If you haven't ever been to Fuzzy's, go. It is very tasty and has very reasonable prices. It is in Bricktown right next to the movie theater and Sonic. They have tables outside that look over the Bricktown canal and there is a lot of good people watching to do. We stayed the night at Brad & Trisha's house. Brad was kind enough to take us to the airport at 5:30 in the morning to...

Oct 22, 2013 - Oklahoma City, OK

We arrived in Oklahoma City on Tuesday, October 15. Camping World is ordering a part for our satellite. Bill's had one medical appointment, and we're waiting on testing results. We had a fun three-day weekend with Cory, Rhonda and Bryce while Bryce was out of school on fall break. We're looking forward to seeing one of his football games while we're here. I had a fun reunion with nine of my former co-workers at OU Personnel Services on Monday. We've had new tires put on our truck. It's now two years old and has nearly 60,000 miles on it....

Oct 21, 2013 - Mon.:Day 6

October 21, 2013 - Day 6 Had a very relaxing day somewhat. Mike tried fixing the whining coming from our power converter & it seemed to be fixed but now it seems to be back; really don't know what the problem is; battery???? So while Mike was working on that & I was watching dutifully & handing him tools while he laid on the floor; the women folk were down by the crick doing the wash aka laundry mat. That all done & off to a fun filled day. Stop 1: Camping world looking for things that we needed; Stop 2: the Cowboy Museum. Words alone...
