Oct 2, 2019 - The Last Song

I’m so grateful that each new day is a surprise! I used to think I wanted to know what the future held for me, but I don’t feel that way anymore. Why? Because if you would have told me in May 2016 that I would sell my home and everything I own; purchase a small RV; and hit the road alone with just my pups, I would have told you that you were crazier than me! But I did. And we did. And it was the most amazing journey of a lifetime. But, as with all things, this journey has reached its end. Without question, I will look back on 2016, 2017 and...

Sep 20, 2019 - Oklahoma City to Amarillo

Route 66, or is it? Day 16 It seems strange to wake up in someone’s home. The owner had said she would be going to work at 6.30 but we didn’t hear her leave. Once up and showered we have coffee and then set off to visit the Oklahoma National Memorial. This commemorates the victims of the bombing by two right-wing domestic terrorists. On the corner of the crossing there is a statue of Jesus weeping opposite a wall with 168 niches, each one representing one of the victims of the bombing. This is built on the site of a part of the cathedral...

Sep 16, 2019 - 28th STOP - Oklahoma City, OK

9/16/19 - After we left the Amarillo City limits it was 40 miles of Wind Turbines and vast stretches of fields growing all kinds of stuff. Flat, flat, flat as far as the eye could see. As we got closer to Oklahoma City, the towns started to get bigger and the topography got more hilly with some small canyons. Everything was a lot more green than TX. Temps will be going up and when we get to West Memphis, AR (the stop after Van Buren, AR, our next stop) the temps will be 103. We will be right beside the Mississippi River, so hopefully it...

Sep 9, 2019 - Oklahoma City-The Big Friendly

After leaving Salina we drove a whopping 95 miles to Wichita where we spent a few nights. The primary reason for going there was a text from our son-in-law saying he would be in Wichita for business. We met him after he finished work and visited one of the more amazing sights in Wichita, the Keeper of the Plains. This 44-foot statue stands at the confluence of the Arkansas and Little Arkansas rivers and is elevated on a 30-foot rock promontory. It commemorates the local tribes that used to inhabit the Wichita area. We walked along the river...

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...
