Mar 23, 2008 - Fort Worth, TX

Little Rock is a nice little city. We ate dinner Friday at a brew pub called Bosco's. The beers were delicious and so were the pork chops with chili bbq reduction. Saturday, we left for Fort Worth and stayed at Holiday Park on Benbrook Lake. It was only a few miles from Aunt Jannie and Uncle John's home. They came over to the campground and got the full tour of Homomoto and got to meet Minnie. We went for great Mexican food at El Rancho Grande. I had not seen them for about five years. We agreed to not let five more years go by before we...

Full Timing from CA

Oct 11, 2007 - Downtown Fort Worth

Downtown Fort Worth at the Stockyards. Millions of head of cattle, sheep and pigs passed through here. A bit of history: "For the south Texas drovers herding cattle up the trail to the railheads in Kansas, Fort Worth was the last major stop for rest and supplies. Beyond Fort Worth they would have to deal with crossing the Red River into Indiana Territory. Between 1866 and 1890 more than four million head of cattle were trailed through Fort Worth, earning it the nickname "Cowtown." When the railroad finally arrived in 1876, Fort Worth...

Viva la Vita

Oct 7, 2007 - Travel to Fort Worth

Travelling from San Antonio to Fort Worth was not very exciting. Interstate 35 split into I-35W going to Fort Worth and I-35E going to Dallas. Almost along the whole length that we travelled is developed, so we didn't see much more of the "wild west". Our campground is large and very nice. We are about 20 miles from downtown Fort Worth, which we plan to explore tomorrow.

West Trip Fall 2007

Aug 26, 2007 - Home at last

We arrived back in Fort Worth two weeks ago. Our motorcoach made it almost all the way home without mechanical problems. The power motherboard burned out and we lost all our electrical. Fortunately, we were back home and did not have to drive or sleep without air conditioning. The day we arrived home it was 105! Quite a change from the 70 degrees we had grown accustomed to! We wasted no time in finding a new home. We have bought a brand new house in Fort Worth. We plan to close this coming week and get moved in the day after Labor Day. We...

Aug 14, 2007 - American Airlines Museum - Fort Worth

We left Purtis Creek State Park at 10:30 AM and headed to Fort Worth to the American Airlines Museum (Curtis Smith Museum.) Charlie really enjoyed the museum. We saw the brick with Charlie's Dad's name on it. Upon leaving the museum, we headed for Lake Murray State Park in Oklahoma. We were able to get a campsite right on the lake. It was beautiful. One interesting thing about this park is that it has "Bed and Birth" cabins. You can rent a floating cabin and dock your boat right at the cabin. The folks down the way had a huge tent complete...

Apr 27, 2007 - Fort Worth and Dallas; Cattle and Oil; Ah, Texan Dreams!

Dallas - of JR and Oil! Thursday 26th April 2007 Time to visit Dallas - well, if you've ever watched an episode of "Dallas" back in the 80's - you will just have to see the place - though we decided against a visit to South Fork - well, I ask you, would you visit the set of Coronation Street or Eastenders? Ok, Ok, I know some of you would, but hey, we are travellers of the world - not soap addicts. Though, having said that, Neil just loves the series on in the States called "Heroes" - it's not yet been released back in the UK - but it will...

Toughs Travels

Apr 10, 2007 - Easter in Dallas/Fort Worth

It has been a chilly week in Northern Texas. We have been bundled up due to record breaking low temperatures and even saw snow flakes falling from the sky on Saturday! Mental note to self - don't come to Northern Texas in April! The day after Dave's dog bite incident, Cheryl spent a few hours touring around Austin (and forgot the camera!) while Dave hobbled around with the kids. We then drove 3 hours north to Dallas where we camped at three different campgrounds in the area, enjoying the diversity as well as fearing for our safety at the...

Mar 27, 2007 - Fort Worth.... Billy Bob's and the Stockyards

Tuesday turned out to be a really cool day. We have been to Dallas several times and we usually go to the Kennedy Memorial but after seeing it several times and becoming very depressed we opted to skip that this time. For those of you that haven't seen pictures or have been fortunate to go there, I'm sorry if you are disappointed but this time we chose to go to Fort Worth and see the Stockyards. When you think of the Stockyards of course you think of Billy Bob's. Billy Bob's was once a barn for prize cattle during the stock shows. The...

The Beginning

Mar 26, 2007 - The Big "D"

We left Tyler at about 10:00am on Sunday and drove the 120 mules to our campground in Grapevine, Texas. We will be here for the next week for Sydney's Bat Mitzvah. The campground is owned by the City of Grapevine and is on Lake Grapevine. It is a super nice park and we have a beautiful site looking down at the water and all the boats. The Dallas area does not have an abundance of camp grounds so we were lucky to find one this nice as close to Sheryl's house. We are only about 15 miles away. The nice part about it is that it is where...

Mar 8, 2007 - Mansfield, Texas

We visited with John and Yvette Schmitt. I went to college with John and we both graduated in Civil Engineering. We were room mates one year. We got to go out to dinner with them and their son and Yvette's mother (from France and didn't speak one word of English). It was great seeing them again. The pictures we took turned out terrible so I won't put them on the web. Next year we can get a good picture of them standing in front of their wonderful Texas home (with my good camera). By the way, I mailed my camera back to Pentax so hopefully by...
