Oct 27, 2017 - Sallisaw, Oklahoma

Another good day for travel along I-40 West....it started out with a 17 degree morning, cloudy and some wind. We see that Arkansas had some farming including wheat and cotton, some logging and manufacturing. There were big warehouses with names like L'Oréal and Maybelline from the interstate. By noon it was super windy and pouring rain but we kept going, no sight seeing or touring, across the state of Arkansas. The rain stopped after we got soaked during a coffee stop and the temperature continued dropped. By the time we stopped for our...

65 is good!

Sep 7, 2017 - Day of Planning

Sept 7. 2017 (Thursday) The man using the rifle as a walking stick was gone when I got up this morning so I didn’t get a picture. Today was a planning day for the rest of the week I will be in Sallisaw and a little bit of sightseeing. I am only 25 miles from Ft Smith and Van Buren AR. I drove to the AR tourist information center to pick up literature on Ft Smith and Van Buren. I then drove around downtown Van Buren to see if there were any stores I wanted to go into when I am there tomorrow. I headed back towards Sallisaw and stopped at...

Just Tripping Along

Sep 6, 2017 - Travel Day

Sept 6, 2017 (Wednesday) I’m now in Sallisaw OK. I think I like highway 412 thru Arkansas better then highway 65. 412 doesn’t have as many narrow portions of road as 65 however there are more hills. They are not as steep as the ones on 65. I learned something today after I checked into the campground. I found out in order to have clear cable channels the air antenna booster needs to be turned off. When I was in Branson, I didn’t have clear cable channels and just thought there was an issue with their cable or my TV wiring. Today when I...

Just Tripping Along

Jun 21, 2017 - It's Called Kamping

I have always looked for the bright side in every odd, difficult, quirky and uncomfortable situation we have gotten into. Any experienced RV traveler knows there will be challenges, at some time while on the road. You simply cannot avoid them and it is best to keep everything is perspective. Traveling across the USA in our Jeep, towing a small trailer and sleeping in KOA’s “Kamping Kabins” has been arduous. As I write this, we are over half way through our two-week Tupelo, Mississippi trip. Currently, we are in eastern Oklahoma. We are...

Aug 16, 2016 - Sallisaw, OK

Today we went from Yukon to Sallisaw, OK. It was a short 175 miles. We slowed down to allow the storm front to pass to the northeast. During a rest stop we discovered that the hood latch was detached. So we improvised with duct tape. Tomorrow we head to West Memphis, AR.

2016 Southwest

Feb 1, 2016 - Sallisaw Okalahoma

We arrived in Sallisaw Oklahoma at the Koa around 4 pm which was a very good drive down I-49 to I-40 and west. The weather here is just wonderful, 65 degrees and the sun is shining on clear skies. We will spend one night here and head for the Dallas/Ft. Worth Texas area tomorrow. Sallisaw is basically a small community of 8650 people that depend on lumber, oil and natural gas as the industry. During World War II there was a POW camp here. In Oklahoma there are 70 casinos and the Indians own all of them.

2016 Westward HO

Jul 11, 2014 - Sallisaw

Today's drive took longer than it should have because there was a bad wreck on I-40 east of Fort Smith. Traffic was diverted off the highway and we had to take a slow, curvy detour, for more than 20 miles to get around that. However, we arrived at the KOA and settled in to keep cool for the night. Welcome to Oklahoma in July.

Summer 2014 & Beyond

Jun 18, 2014 - The end of Oklahoma

Well the corn hasn't gotten "as tall as an elephant's eye" yet; but it will get there. Saw lots of corn and wheat fields between Oklahoma City and here. The wind is also something to behold. Driving with the cross-wind is very tiring. Not much to report today. Mostly drove. Hooked up with my friends from Arizona. We will travel together tomorrow to North Little Rock and possibly on Friday as we head towards Memphis. I will probably split off to head towards Millington, TN. There should be a military RV Park there.

Summer Trip 2014

Jun 9, 2014 - Sallisaw

More heavy rain and thunderstorms overnight but we found a window of dry spell to make our escape from Oklahoma City. We made it to Sallisaw, almost to the Arkansas border with just a few light showers. Weather permitting, will move further on east tomorrow, maybe Little Rock.

May 22, 2013 - Wichita Falls, TX to Sallisaw, OK

We woke up to beautiful blue skies this morning. I'll tell you, blue skies in this part of the country, this time of year are like winning the lottery! You feel very lucky. We were on the road at 8:45 and crossed the border into Oklahoma about 25 minutes later. We had a radio station on that was offering information for the tornado victims and people who wanted to donate things. Moore is right on I40, which we were on. We saw some of the devastation from the highway; trees just ripped out of the ground, a couple of buildings demolished,...

Aug 29, 2012 - August 29, 2012 -- Red Bay, Alabama to Sallisaw, Oklahoma

August 29, 2012 – Red Bay, Alabama to Sallisaw, Oklahoma Well, I got away at 7:30 this morning so it wasn’t too much later than I intended. I wanted to get out ahead of Isaac, and I managed to do that. The weather was sunny all the way to Sallisaw where I arrived at 5:30. It was hard to believe that just a couple of hundred miles south of where I was that devastation caused by high winds and torrential rain was happening. More corn has been picked, and the cotton plants are putting out their bolls. Some fields of cotton looked liked they...
