May 18, 2019 - Amarillo to Oklahoma City

This morning we left Amarillo, Texas for Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, a distance of 264 miles. We left the park at 0800 and arrived at the Rockwell RV Park located on the western portion of Oklahoma City at 1330. As we left the park in Amarillo the sky was clear and the wind was very light. The temperature was cool which got Ross into his sweatshirt when he went outside to begin disconnecting everything so we could leave the campground. As we got onto I-40 east bound Ross noticed a well-defined weather front with some very high cumulus clouds...

May 6, 2019 - Oklahoma City

Well, we are off! After sitting for 16 months, we had to get back into our routine for closing the coach and hooking up the car. Must admit that there were some “BAD” words uttered the first two or three times, but we have made progress and things are slowly moving more smoothly. Of course, we made the obligatory stop in Red Bay, AL. After three days and a new front door, we headed to Oklahoma City, with an overnight stop in Little Rock. While in OKC, we visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum remembering the 1995 bombing of...

Jan 2, 2019 - Fly Home

Princess has the debarkation process down to a science. Since we took advantage of the EZ check, our bags were already gone and checked through to Oklahoma City, so we waited with our carry-on until our number was called. We literally walked off the ship, through customs/immigration, and we were at the airport within 30 minutes. The airport is only a few miles from the cruise terminal. Since we were already checked in and had our boarding passes, we just waited in the United lounge until our flight was ready. Despite a long layover in...

Dec 31, 2018 - I’m Movin’ On...Goodbye 2018

Thank goodness for notes. Through my travels, I have gotten better at documenting my travels, but I still manage to miss (then forget) interesting antidotes and the “small” things that make my traveling so enjoyable. As 2018 comes to a close, I ran across one of those notes from earlier this year. I entitled it “Bumps and Bruises”. What a time for this note to appear to me... While working, my colleagues and I would joke that the only thing that mattered in the year were the last few weeks of October into early November. Why? Well,...

Dec 17, 2018 - Preparing for Cruise

Today was a busy day. Empty Refrigerator of anything that won't last 2 weeks, tidy up the house, pack, order airport transport, print boarding passes, and, finally, Joe's Dr. appointment at 3 p.m. Since the refrigerator is empty, we ran to Primo's for dinner. Even though we don't have a terribly early start, we called it an early night anyway. Stay tuned.

Adventures for 2018

Nov 15, 2018 - Didn't Slow Down 'til I Was...to Arkansas

Smooth sailing again on the 4½ drive this morning. When I got here grabbed some lunch then went to the Heifer International Center where they have a small museum about what they do. I had been familiar w/ the organization before but only when researching things to do in Little Rock did I realize they were headquartered here. Their primary function is to provide animals, my understanding had been primarily cows but they apparently have other animals too, to people in underprivileged countries and teach them how to care for the animal so they...

Nov 14, 2018 - Living on Tulsa Time

2 hour drive in from OKC uneventful. Went straight downtown to pick up Art Deco walking tour at visitor’s center. Tulsa has preserved a lot of the buildings from the 20s and 30s when they were an oil boom town. Spent about an hour and a half walking around, reviewing the descriptions in the guide and taking pictures. Still only in the low 30s temperature wise so I was glad to get back into the car. Since the theme of my travels is “This Land is My Land”, it only made sense to visit the Woody Guthrie Center here in Tulsa. Arrived at 2. Not a...

Nov 13, 2018 - Oklahoma City Memorial and Museum

Plan was to walk the 1.2 miles to the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. So, you have to execute the plan, right? When I left the hotel around 9:15, it was 21 degrees and a bit breezy. It took about 25 minutes to walk it. I was very happy to get out of the cold when I got there. The museum is in a building that would have been on the back side of the blast. There are 2 floors of displays. The one floor walks you through the events of the day (April 19, 1995) and the immediate aftermath up to the ultimate implosion of the building...

Nov 12, 2018 - National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum

Generally uneventful trip up from Dallas other than when I got here it was 32 degrees, very windy and snowing. Itinerary didn’t have any activities listed for today but when I was looking ahead a couple of weeks ago, I thought no reason to waste the entire afternoon and that I would stop at the National Memorial and Museum. About 20 miles south of town I decided I didn’t really want to outside in this weather (especially since last Wednesday when I was in Houston it was 84 degrees), so instead I went to the National Cowboy and Western...

Oct 7, 2018 - Tedium and white knuckles

Fog. Poor visibility. Could be anywhere. A couple hundred miles of not much with gas stops for a break. The radio is interrupted with emergency messages. Heavy thunderstorms in Oklahoma counties I don't recognize. Golf ball sized hail. Flashfloods. Stay indoors. Seems fine in Elk City. I press on. Hit I-40 eastbound. Major thunderstorms. Heavy, heavy rain pounding me. Visibity down to 100 feet at times. Most folks slow down to 45. Trucks pass me doing 60. Lets up about 40 miles from Oklahoma City. Glad to be off the road. Not camping weather.
