May 23, 2019 - Day 7 - Big Green RV Resort, Ponca City, OK

Unlike all the previous days, we wake up this morning to threatening dark clouds and blustery winds. Forecast is for severe thunderstorms in Amarillo by 10am, so we are motivated to get on the road. Plan is to head for northwest OK. Google maps and Waze want us to take I-40 for 300 miles, but not only does that violate our prime directive to avoid interstates, it takes us 50 miles out of our way. Plus, since we can't go any faster than 65 mph with the tow, it doesn't save us any time. I check the map and US 60 is just a short ways away to...

2019 Summer Big Trip

Aug 28, 2018 - Drive to Ponca City

We are taking a little road trip this week, so we left home with the goal to get to Stillwater by lunchtime and dine at Eskimo Joe's. I've always wanted to eat there so, cross that one off the bucket list. Food was really good and we walked around town a little until the heat got the best of us. We continued on to Ponca City and checked in at the hotel. Our next stop was the Pioneer Woman Museum & Statue. The facility showcases the stories of Oklahoma's pioneering women. These ladies had a profound influence on the development of the state...

Adventures for 2018

Aug 13, 2014 - August 13, 2014 – Ponca City, Oklahoma

August 13, 2014 – Ponca City, Oklahoma This was another wonderful, mild day so after water aerobics, I took off for Ponca City. There is a small botanical garden there named the Cann Memorial Garden. It is located on the 10 acre estate of Lester Cann who was an early pillar of the community. It is the home of an annual Herb Festival which draws people from all over the world. The house is a 2 story farm house built in 1908 and is used for various community functions. It is a nice garden, but there are no identifiers on any of the plants so...

May 6, 2014 - Scenic And Interesting Drive

How to describe today's drive - picture a roller coaster or a furled ribbon . It was a constant up and down one small hill after another. There was a stretch where lush beautiful green farmland was all the eye could see . The next thing you know there were working oil wells in the middle of the fields. I drove through a small town in Kansas called Medicine Lodge and passed Carrie Nation's homestead ( closed until the weekend). As I crossed into Oklahoma, I passed the Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge . It is 50 square miles , 11,000...

May 1, 2013 - We are on the Road again!!!!!

We are off!! We pulled out of the Lake Lewisville park around 11:00 am. Kinda got a late start. Our destination today is Ponca City, OK. It was hard saying bye to everyone at the park that we have got to know and become good friends with. We haven't moved for a year. It takes a bit to get back into the habit of where things go and in what order it takes to travel. I bet we double checked and triple checked everything just to make sure we were ready. We had good weather all day. It was in the upper 70's and overcast. As we got farther north...

Jun 14, 2007 - Wet golf in Enid; successful repairs in Ponca City

June 14-Enid Oklahoma is in the middle of the tornado belt. It is hot in the summer, cold in the winter, and usually windy all the time. This trip, in the only day we were in Enid where we were scheduled to be outside, it chose to rain on us.My middle brother Mark and I were planning to play golf at Oakwood Country Club, Dad's home course and now John's home course. We got in about four holes when it started to drizzle. We got in another 2-3 holes when it started to really drizzle. It was like trying to hit through a heavy, wet fog. We...

Jun 20, 2006 - Nardin/Blackwell, Oklahoma

It didn't take long to get to Oklahoma. We are in a nice little park (converted cow pasture) but it has a friendly camp host, clean bathrooms, a laundry and wi-fi. All for $12. No trees, though, and it was in the triple digits today. I was just too tired to go visiting and it would have been too hot for me to stay in the truck when Mom and Dad were out taking pictures or visiting. They really had a great time at Cousin Rhonda's. A dog lives there named Jeni Rae. Mom says she looks like a cattle dog. She gave both Mom and Dad doggie kisses...
