Apr 1, 2016 - Travel to Mountain Lakes Ranch RV Park

Today we traveled to the north Texas hill country by way of Sweetwater, Abilene, Eastland, Desdemona and Stephenville and arrived at the Mountain Lakes Ranch RV Park near Bluff Dale. As great as the travel day was yesterday, this one was very different. A norther blew in overnight and the wind was blowing 30-40 MPH from the north....we were driving east and the wind gave me a fit. But, God had mercy and we made it OK without incident...just a bit stressful. Thankfully by night the wind has calmed down and it warmed up to around 60 degrees....

May 8, 2012 - On the road again ..............................

Traveling with Carol, Lou & Beau ...... Gollies - it has been almost a year since I last 'checked in' with friends and followers. I truly do not know where the months have gone. I must imagine that I have been so occupied with looking at scenery, visiting family and just hanging out. What a life we have! After a cool summer in Colorado, we needed to head towards Eldorado, Kansas, and onto NuWa, the factory that built our RV. We needed a couple of adjustments and fixes. We stayed a couple of days in a motel that allows dogs too (so glad). We...

Aug 9, 2011 - Traveled to Taylor Reservoir & Gunnison, CO

Traveling with Carol, Lou & Beau .............. We have been thoroughly enjoying ourselves in the Rockies. It is amazing - around every curve there is another spectacular mountain view. I hope you all enjoy the views that we share with you. So many are breathtaking! We spent a good part of a day riding up through Cottonwood Pass to Taylor Reservoir. We decided to go back through Gunnison to our park in Buena Vista. That area is 38 miles west of our park and 34 miles northeast of Gunnison. This town looked just perfect to me for taking up a...

Jul 18, 2011 - Heading to Colorado

Traveling with Carol, Lou & Beau ......... We left Bluff Dale on July 5th, after seeing the most spectacular fireworks in Granbury on the 4th (reported to be one of the best in the country - I believe that). We never saw such a display like it - ever! Another thing we did was go to a drive-in movie with Andrew, Jana, Aubrie and Brendan to see 2 children's movies. I cannot remember when we last did that. Was fun. After we left, our first stop was the Rocking A RV Park in Vernon, TX. We usually stay two nights at each stop in order to rest...

Jun 6, 2011 - Hanging out in Bluff Dale, TX

Traveling with Carol, Lou & Beau .......... We had a nice trip to Bluff Dale, taking the back roads, which we always enjoy - seeing middle America - love it! My grandchildren, Aubrey & Brendan, are out of school now and have been able to spend some time with us. They are growing up! Wild pigs have become a problem here in Bluff Dale, so Andrew has put up a large fenced-in area trap to catch them. They dig up their yards terribly. Several have been caught (3 little piggies at once). Andrew has gotten the meat processed from a very large pig....

Jan 7, 2011 - Happy New Year Plus......

Traveling with Carol, Lou & Beau .............. We have been 'resting' here in Bluff Dale - peaceful part of the State of Texas. Tried correcting my TX map - no luck yet. Will continue to work on it. Karen and Tom, plus Alie were here for a couple weeks and have headed back to Santa Barbara, CA...darn. They spend a lot of time golfing, which is great for them. David and Sandy Merrill, with Mr. Chips, from Jacksonville, spent the holidays at Andrew's as well. Sandy took a little side-trip to Portland to spend time with her sons. We spent...

Nov 28, 2009 - Visiting in Bluff Dale during Thanksgiving

Traveling with Carol, Lou & Beau .................... We are not traveling at the moment, but are having a REALLY wonderful time with Andrew, Jana, Aubrie & Brendan - oh, must include Rudolph & Clarice too. Lou thinks northern Texas is too cold to hang out here, but I am enjoying the colder weather, and the ability to be outside and wear a heavy sweater, or two. :-) Lou has been in Melbourne, FL since the day before Thanksgiving, visiting with his relatives. It has been a while since we were down there...early in 2008, I believe. Lou...

Nov 6, 2009 - Carthage, MO thru OK City, OK to Bluff Dale, TX

Traveling with Carol, Lou & Beau ................. Our trip from Carthage, MO to Oklahoma City, OK was a pleasant one - nice weather except for the wind that was NOT behind us (that does not help our mileage), but it was sunny. We stopped for a quick meal, then were on the road again. Don't ask me where it was - we cannot remember .....but ........ I forgot to tell you all about the McDonald's Restaurant we went to. The restaurant stretched across Interstate 44 in both directions of the road (4 lanes) and was a two-story bubble-shaped well...

Nov 7, 2008 - Visiting at Bluff Dale

Traveling with Carol, Lou & Beau ............ After arriving yesterday, Andrew wanted to show us the property they bought (10 acres) to build a home, separate 3-car garage and storage garage for his motorcoach and riding vehicles. We followed them in their motorhome, and we took our RV - Planned to be there for the weekend. Bluff Dale is about 79 miles from here. We were able to keep up with them, after fueling up. We are so grateful that diesel fuel prices are down somewhat. Actually, the price is the same as it was when we first began...
