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...

Oct 21, 2013 - Sun:Day 5

Oct 11, 2013 - Disembark & Fly Home

Our ship is small by today's standards and since we were already in port in Venice, disembarkation began right on schedule. Because we had an early flight, we purchased our airport transfer from the ship and we were off with group one. It went smoothly, we waited in the designated lounge until our number was called, scanned out with our sea pass cards, stopped in the terminal building, claimed our bags, and headed for the bus. Right on schedule, the bus started to pull away bound for the airport; but, stopped abruptly when one of the RCI...

Sep 25, 2013 - Day 4

Good morning everyone! Day 4 coming up and we're on our way to Flagstaff Arizona. But on the way, we'll stop somewhere in Texas. I need a new cowboy hat...woohoo! So much to see out here. I'm so lucky to see this beautiful country. Having so many laughs with Liz and making so many memories. It's awesome. Well, here are some pictures that I took yesterday from Illinois to Oklahoma.

Sep 17, 2013 - Albuquerque, NM to Oklahoma City, OK

(Sandi writing) We accomplished one of our goals today...get through New Mexico, Texas and into Oklahoma as fast as we could! We encountered fog leaving Albuquerque with the visibility at times down to a quarter of a mile. It wasn't until we entered Oklahoma that we got caught in a huge rain storm. Ron and I cannot remember when we ever drove through such hard and heavy rain. About the time we got off the freeway, the weather improved, so we got back onto I-40 and continued on. With black skies all around us, we are here in our motel room...

Sep 15, 2013 - Oklahoma City OK

We were slow to get moving today because, well, there was no need to do otherwise. We left about 11:00 and headed about 30 minutes north to the town of Guthrie. Guthrie was the original territorial capital of Oklahoma so at one point it was the boomingest (a new word?) town in the state. However when OKC was made the capital in 1910 the city of Guthrie kind of froze in time. The net result is that the town now is the largest continuous district on the National Register of Historic Places. The most impressive is the downtown area and its red...

Sep 14, 2013 - Oklahoma City OK

We kind of flip-flopped our plans for today and decided to stay in OKC for the day before we headed to dinner with Michele’s brother. We left the campground about 10:30 and headed into downtown to see the OKC National Memorial at the site of the Oklahoma City bombing. The site has a couple areas, dedicated to different aspects of the incident. There are walls at each end of the site that marks the entrances to the memorial that they call “The Gates of Time”. Each has a time etched into - 9:01 to mark the minute before the blast when...
