Jun 11, 2013 - Top Reasons To Visit Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City is one of the places that will bring out the life in you as the energy that the city exudes is matched to none other. To make it even better, the residents are very friendly and don't mind having visitors in their midst at any time of the year. Oklahoma City is the one place on earth where you will visit with your entire family, have maximum fun at little expense and wish that you can relocate and reside there on a permanent basis. It is urban in every way so you will not have to endure badly maintained hotels and services. If...

Jun 2, 2013 - From St. Jude's to Oklahoma City

We started today by trying out a little place that was highly recommended by Trip Advisor and Yelp--The Blue Plate Cafe. Well worth the difficulty finding legal parking. The eggs benedict was delicious. The guys each had some sort of omelette. Plenty of good coffee, and we were ready to drive the few blocks to St. Jude's Children's Hospital, where we located the brick on the memorial wall that is dedicated to Joe's mother. We were led there by a lovely guard at the hospital, and he even took the brick off the wall so that we could get a...

May 26, 2013 - Day 1 - DSM to OKC - Parental Discretion Advised

Well, the first day had its ups and downs, but all four cars made it to Oklahoma City, although one arrived via tow truck. More on that later. First a joke from our Friday night pre-journey abbreviated Happy Hour. What’s the difference between Frank’s paycheck and his penis? I, of course, went with size. Answer: Lot’s of women are willing to blow his paycheck. OK. We can remove the parental advisory. A second joke from Frank on our departure from Oklahoma City: Why did they used to put "Oklahoma is OK" on their license plates? Answer: They...

May 16, 2013 - Oklahoma City

Tuesday moved on again a 1.5 hour drive to Oklahoma City where we are stopping just 2 nights. We arrived by lunchtime today which gave us time to visit some of the city, today we walked along the canal in Bricktown, loads of murals in the area, painted Bison as well. Very windy here but just as well as it is so hot would be unbearable without the wind. Along the canal we saw lots of Ducks & ducklings, as well as a stray rabbit and a bird that had fallen out of its nest. Now to find today one of the air cons is not working & we really could...

May 6, 2013 - Oklahoma City National Memorial

The Memorial was incredibly moving bringing tears. It is unimaginable how beautifully peaceful this history was revealed and so chilling an event. We had to visit again at night. Plans now include Waco (David Koresh's bulldozed compound) to see where Tim McVeigh began his plans involving Terry Nichols, his service buddy.

May 4, 2013 - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

At Rockwell RV Park, a large place just off the Interstate. Not much dog walk for Yogi who has to be encouraged to return to the RV. Settle in plan to see the Oklahoma City National Memorial. Adjustment begins again to the new digs. Trying to find things.

Apr 18, 2013 - Headed to Summer Jobs

Well, we are off again to go to our summer jobs. We left Mesa on April 1 and headed east on Interstate 40. We had planned on stopping at Gallup, NM, but it was still fairly early and we both felt like driving some more, so we ended up stopping in Albuquerque for the night. We knew we had about 3 weeks before we had to report for work, so we had time to see some sights. We planned on going to Branson and seeing some of the shows before starting our summer jobs. While we were getting set up that evening, we saw another couple that had stayed...

Apr 10, 2013 - Ice Scrapers in April

It was a wild weather night, one of those typical spring storms we Okies have grown accustomed to over the years. But, even for us, it's a little late in the season for these frigid temperatures. It rained heavy all night long, the winds blew the rain in sheets against the sides of the motor home, thunder rolled, lightning flashed, and hail and sleet peppered the roof. Foxy was not a happy camper and I couldn't sleep anyway so I sat up for several hours with her. The forecast had a weather warning calling for a wintry mix; winter in...

Apr 5, 2013 - Amarillo To Oklahoma City

Today would have been my 49th wedding anniversary. Enough said. Before leaving Texas, I needed to have my car inspected. My sticker came due in February but since I was in Arizona the inspection got delayed until now. I left Amarillo a bit later than I normally would have but at least I am "legal" now. Have you ever heard the title song from the musical Oklahoma? --Oklahoma where the wind comes SCREAM'n cross the plains ( took a little license there). Well believe it! The wind was brutal on I40 today. I broke up the drive by stopping in...

Apr 5, 2013 - On The Road (Oklahoma City, OK)

Traveling for the fourth consecutive day was not something we looked forward to, but we managed to be ready to go, and pulled out of Oasis RV Park in Amarillo, Texas right at 8:30 this morning. At least we remained in the same time zone all day today! We made one fuel stop and arrived at Twin Fountains RV Park in Oklahoma City at 2:15 this afternoon. The traffic was heavy all day but Marilyn did great following in her car. We were soon checked in and all set up in Site E-22. This is a nice long pull-through site with room for parking of the...

Mar 21, 2013 - Rockwell RV Park

Another day another state and more wind on the beam of the motor home. Makes a fella have a goodnight's sleep tho that i can vouch for. easy set up but dinner was rather minimalist with a 40Kt wind blowing the burners. Weather appears to be moving in on us so may have to make a tactical decision one way or the other tomorrow. Looks like folks in the homeland and others to the north are getting hit pretty good. First day of spring no less. Not much else to report as not much has happened today. Cable and wifi are good if nothing else, see...

Away we go 2013

Mar 19, 2013 - Home for a Few Weeks

With just about 250 miles, we weren't in a huge hurry to get going. Oasis is on the west side of Amarillo and we let most of the morning rush go before we hit the superslab again. The wind was a little more troublesome today and we both just wanted to get home. We minimized our stops and Foxy was a real trooper and slept most of the journey. We still had a comfortable fuel supply by the time we got to Flying J at Morgan Rd. However, it was good to see that solid sub $4.00 / gallon price. Our plan to get a wash at Blue Beacon died a quick...
