Dec 28, 2014 - Christmas with Family

December 23 After an earlier than usual start, we arrived at our oldest son's house about 2:30 in the afternoon. Grandsons were there to help and Clark got us set up very quickly. The New Mexico crew arrived about 9:00pm. Our daughter and her family left Albuquerque, early in the morning, and drove to Carlsbad (about 270 miles) to get my mother. From there, they then drove about 450 miles to Hurst. It was a very long day for them. December 24 Have gotten a recommendation as a great place for pictures, we all gathered there at 3:00pm. We...

Oct 26, 2014 - Visiting Family

October 22 In the daylight, on the 22nd, we found the rest stop we we'd spent the night was a little piece of Texas history - Cottonwood Springs. We had a historical marker to prove it. The spring was in constant use, until it dried up in the mid-19th century. Its lone cottonwood tree died when the water quit flowing. We also found that hunters thought of this place as their dumping grounds, which was too bad. Fortunately, the smell didn't bother us. We arrived at our son's house, in Hurst, about 1:00pm. We disconnected the trailer and,...

Apr 20, 2014 - A Stay with Children and Grandchildren

It felt so food to be back on the road on the 18th. Leaving Tulsa, our start was a little later than we had planned, because Clark had to do everything. We also got propane before we hit the road, so it was about 11:00am by the time we left that great RV park where we stayed in Tulsa. What had taken our kids about 5-1/2 hours to drive, took us a little more than seven hours. One unplanned stop was because we found $3.45 diesel, so stopped to top off the tank. Two other stops were because Clark needed a "butt" break. Just after 6:00pm, we...

Oct 2, 2012 - Visiting Kids

On Oct. 2, after leaving Rotan, we stopped at the next small town, Anson, so I could visit the cemetery where my paternal grandmother is buried. First, we had to find the cemetery. Clark stopped to ask directions and was told we couldn't miss it and were headed in the right direction. We didn't miss it, but it was farther out of town than was indicated. We found ourselves in a huge cemetery and the challenge was to find one specific plot. I called my brother, because he's been there before. I must have given him bad information about the...

Jun 27, 2012 - Hurst, Texas

Miles had to be covered on June 23, as we drove from Ashdown, AR, to Hurst, TX. It was the 14th birthday of our #3 grandson and we wanted to get there in order to join the celebration. The long day's drive meant we were on Interstate30 for most of the drive, so we covered the distance fairly quickly. We got to Hurst early afternoon. Had a great dinner with the family and then had scrumptious blueberry pie that our daughter-in-law makes for all of the boys' birthdays. Triple digit temperatures hit while we were there, so it was hot. Clark...

Feb 27, 2010 - Clark Gets to Fly

Clark's birthday is in November. Our oldest son and his family had given him a ride in a Stearman open cockpit bi-play for his birthday. He had tried to get his ride, just after Thanksgiving, but the plane had a problem and they didn't get off the ground, so he got a rain-check. We went back to Hurst and hoped for good weather. They won't take off if the temperature is not 50 degrees or above. The weather was miserable all winter, so getting a flight was a bit iffy. The 27th dawned beautiful and clear and warm. It was a perfect day for...

Oct 15, 2009 - Visiting Kids

Arrival at Hurst was later than we had planned, because we started later than we had intended. One of the couples Clark had parked the evening before wanted to visit and we found kindred souls and visited much longer than intended. That put us on the road late morning, instead of fairly early. That put us arriving in the Fort Worth area during rush hour. But, we arrived at our son's house in time for dinner. Our daughter-in-law (Janet) always takes such good care of us. Of course, we had a good time with the three grandsons, the main reason...
