Jan 26, 2015 - Nacogdoches, Texas

As we prepare to continue our journey west the sun rose above the hills of west Tennessee on the climb into the western skies. There is a little bit of chill in the air this morning but it was to be another beautiful day with the sun shining and the sky clear of clouds. We were able to depart from the Ameristar RV Park at 9:30 am, it sure is nice no to be on a schedule so we can come and go as we want. It is amazing how flat the country is between Vicksburg and Monroe Louisiana, thought we were in Kansas. It is a great drive on roads that...

Nov 9, 2014 - Petit arrêt d'une nuit

Nous avons quitté Texarkana pour Nacogdoches une distance de 250 km (150 milles) un arrêt à Shady Pines RV Park, 22 sites sur le bord de la route, 50 Amps, un resto extraordinaire, mais malheureusement fermé le dimanche. Donc il n'y avait personne pour collecter le $12.50 pour la nuit. (passeport America) Donc au matin j'ai pu convaincre un cuisinier qui était là pour partir la viande dans la smokehouse, de prendre mon 13$ en lui disant que sa boss me devrait 50 cents la prochaine fois. Tout le monde était content, la boss au téléphone, le...

Oct 19, 2014 - Nacogdoches, TX Oct '14

Our delay in leaving McKinney because of the tire problem turned out to be a true blessing... Weather on our planned travel day was horrible while the next day turned out to be wonderful. We arrived at our park around 1:00 and got set up quickly. Park is nice and we were happy here. We had come to Nacogdoches to see if we thought this might be a place we might want to settle in after we get off the road. One of the reasons we had considered Nacogdoches was because I have a cousin here, Florence Fitch Patton, who has lived here more than 50...

Oct 31, 2013 - Nacogdoches, Tx

Nous avons quitté Sterling Crest, où il n'y a rien de Sterling, vers à 9h51 on a quitté notre site vers 9h30 on a du prendre un bon 15 minutes pour négocier tous les trous, buildings, cratères etc pour enfin se rendre à la rue. Ce matin j'ai pris mon courage à deux mains et je suis entré dans les toilettes/douches, j'ai déjà vu des bécosses plus propres et là je parle des douches, alors imaginez les toilettes. On a pris des petites routes pour descendre à Nacogdoches, rien de bien compliqué. Le "camping" est attenant à un resto de type...

Apr 17, 2012 - Nacogdoches, TX

Hi All, We are now in Nacogdoches, TX. If was a beautiful drive from the Dallas area. We think this part of Texas is very pretty, so green now and a lot of trees. We love to see all the beautiful brick homes around here, so are almost like mansions. We went through a model home for the fun of it and it was very nice and a hell of a lot cheaper than Oregon homes. Amazing! We are going to see some sites here today if I can get Jim moving. We ended up seeing two historical sites today. One was an old home built in 1830 and had two owners. Sam...

Oct 22, 2011 - The Annual Wallet Lightening

We left Little Rock and had planned to stop over at the Rocky Point CoE just south of Texarkana. Unfortunately, we couldn't find the entrance. I had looked on the website for directions which said the first right after the dam. Well, we never saw a dam. We did see a couple of CoE signs, but didn't know if they were for the campground and when you're driving 40' of motorhome and pulling a car, you don't want to make the wrong turn. Anyway, it was early, and we felt pretty good, so we drove on in to Nacogdoches. We pulled into Camp Foretravel...

Mar 25, 2011 - Visit with Lullene - Day II Early Afternoon – Millard’s Crossing, Nacogdoches

After lunch we took a walking tour of Millard’s Crossing Historic Village on US 59 north of town. The restoration project was begun in 1968 by Lera Millard Thomas, wife of former Congressman Albert Thomas. All the 19th-century buildings were moved from their original locations in and near Nacogdoches to the present location, where they were restored. We had an interesting introduction at the Burrows House (1867-1874), which serves as the visitor center. Then we walked around on our own to see several of the buildings. Not all of them were...

Mar 25, 2011 - Visit with Lullene - Day II Morning. – Ruby M Mize Azalea Garden

Today we went azalea and wildflower peeping. First on the list was the Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches. What a treat! The azaleas are gorgeous in any color. We had lunch in a little hole-in-the-wall type Cajun restaurant. The seafood gumbo was wonderful. ROUTE: US 190 E to Livingston => US 59 N to Nacogdoches

Nov 13, 2010 - Visit with Cousin Lullene - Day III – Nacogdoches

We continued south from Uncertain. We stopped in Marshall to feed Sweet Pea ($2.719) and then drove on to Nacogdoches, where we paid a brief visit to the Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden on the west side of the Stephen F. Austin State University campus. We had hoped to see some fall foliage in the garden but it was still a bit early for that, I guess. One section was closed for a Feral Hog Trapping Project. By the time we reached Lufkin, the sun was very low, which made for hazardous driving conditions, so we decided to have dinner at IHOP...

Nov 3, 2010 - The Mother Ship

We traveled down to Motorhomes of Texas in Nacogdoches to have our annual maintenance and some repair work done on Sunday night, Oct. 24th. We call Nacogdoches the Mother Ship as the Foretravel factory is right across the street, and between them and Motorhomes of Texas, they handle most of the Foretravels that are sold, bought or repaired in the entire nation. Seriously, people drive from all over to buy or sell or repair a Foretravel at one or the other. Many times people even buy their rigs sight unseen from one of these dealers (usually...

Jan 6, 2010 - First Day Back on the Road

Our wonderfully warm Aqua-Hot furnace quit working sometime Monday night. It was only 24 degrees. Luckily, we have an electric blanket and didn't notice anything was wrong til the morning. We hoped it might be something simple like a fuse and took it in to a local RV service center. They worked on it for about three hours, but Jeff decided when it became evident it was more than a fuse, we needed to get the experts in Nacogdoches to work on it. We had had it serviced when we bought the rig in October, so expected everything to be fine, but...

Oct 30, 2009 - Back on the Road Again (Almost)

First entry in a LONG time because we now have our NEW (to us) Foretravel Diesel Pusher. It's an older unit - 1996, but has been maintained very well and to our eyes, looks almost brand new. It has a lot of upgraded features (HD TV's, new mattress, tires, batteries . . .) We are in Nacogdoches right now getting the Blue Ox System installed and the coach's annual service completed. We've stayed in it two nights LOVE it! We hope to do several short trips between now and February when we will begin moving out of our apt. and into "The Burrow."...
