Nov 3, 2019 - Longview, TX

New Braunfels to Longview is a long drive! We made it through Austin at 9 AM on a Sunday morning and never went slower than 55 mph! It's still a long drive, though. Fernbrook RV Park is one of my favorite overnight stops. It's clean, good facilities, quiet, and grassy between the sites (which is important to Holly!). We are doing laundry at Laure's in Corinth, but otherwise we would be using the excellent facility here. The weather has suddenly become very mild. 75 degrees yesterday and 50 overnight.

Apr 8, 2019 - Longview, TX

We made our escape from Houston by waiting to depart at 9:00 AM, after rush hour (supposedly). And by taking the Sam Houston Tollway (Rt 8), which is currently the far outer ring road. Since Texans hate paying tolls it would be the least traveled expressway, and it only involves about 8 extra miles. We thought it was a good choice since traffic was steady but never heavy and we didn't mind the extra miles or the tolls, which were two toll plazas at $5.25 each. Then we connected with I-59 and headed north! Fernbrook RV Park in Longview TX is...

Dec 13, 2017 - Longview, TX

Today we got on I-20 and then about 5 hours later got off I-20. Except for a few bathroom breaks and a fuel stop. This has been going on for a few days now. Part of me says this is some boring traveling but another part remembers what it is like to fight through big-city traffic, and maybe this isn't so bad! The RV park in Longview is great. It's just a comfortable clean park, with a good laundry. I wish they were all like this. I am now making sure that we have plenty of fuel! When we get to half-empty it is a good time to fill up! No...

Oct 4, 2017 - Texas!

The few days that we spent near Hot Springs were nice and relaxing for the most part. Other than a day trip into town to explore, we hung out at the campground and enjoyed the beautiful weather. We had planned to go back into Hot Springs on Saturday morning to partake in the mineral baths but the wait was too long so we took a Duck Boat ride instead. The Duck Boat tour is a land/water tour that uses an amphibious vehicle. We rode through town (which is part of the Hot Springs National Park) and learned some history. Then we rode out to Lake...

2017 Life in our RV

Dec 18, 2015 - Longview, Texas

We made it to Texas! Today we crossed the Mississippi River at Vicksburg, and I recognized the scenery from when we spent a few days here in 2013 seeing the battlefield. And then after 180 miles of Louisiana, we crossed into Texas! Janet chose this area to camp in because she wants to visit a 'famous' quilting shop nearby. Janet orders lots of material from this place via the internet. We went and it is a nice quilting shop in a backwater town. It really shows what you can do with the internet, because we expected to find something like...

Oct 27, 2014 - Back on the Road

It was up early on the 27th, as we prepared to get on the road toward New Orleans. We finally got all of our goodbyes said and left Hurst about 11:30am. The wind was fairly fierce and we were both tired, so stopped shy of our goal, which had been Shreveport. We found a wonderful RV park in Longview, TX, and called it a day.

Sep 19, 2014 - Duck Commanders

We have been in West Monroe LA for 2 days. Went over to the Duck Commanders but didn't see any of the Robbison family. We did see 2 bearded people on the loading dock taking a break but I didn't recognize them. Moved today to Texas but getting here was tough. We had to detour twice off I20. The Interstate was shut down both times apparently from wrecks that we couldn't see. You talking about backed up. Once in Louisiana then in Texas. It was a long 161 miles.

Apr 2, 2013 - On the road again.........

March 30. Departed The Escapee Park, Livingston, Tx. after breakfast at the Care Center. We got a good breakfast under our belts and hit the road about 8:00 a.m. Drove to a park outside of Longview, Texas where Jack and Danielle were parked. Sure was good to see them again. They are getting a new truck and a bed built on the back, like ours, with a smart car to be perched on the top. This is exciting for them. Planning, dreaming, and now it is in for the paint. Wow, a few more days and they should be ready to "hit the road" also. March 31,...

Hither 'N' Yon 2013

Jan 5, 2011 - Longview, TX

We arrived in Longview, Texas today. It is about 50 miles into Texas from LA. We left Vicksburg (it's right at the La. border and drove across La through Monroe & Shreveport to Longview. The RV park is only 9 months old and is very nice. It's also a Passport Park and only cost us $16.50. The owners and camp hosts couldn't be friendlier. You can tell it's getting warmer we are starting to pick up bugs on the windshield and tonight we had a fly in the coach. This is also the first park we've stayed that has a lot of RV's staying here - many...

Back to Arizona

Dec 11, 2010 - Denham Springs, LA to Longview, TX

Traveling with Carol, Lou & Beau ................. We are getting closer to our destination. A ping was in my heart when we hit the Texas border. As a matter of fact, the roads became much smoother! Louisiana and California had the roughest roads so far. They probably did not qualify for one of those 'shovel ready' projects. :-) Too bad! Fernbrook Park, where we stayed, was the newest park in East Texas - actually opened just six months ago. It had great concreted pads and paved roads throughout. The buildings were bright and new. Driving...

Dec 2, 2008 - A Visit to Longview

We have made it safely to Longview and are preparing for a whirlwind week of annual appointments (starting with a fasting lab appointment first thing in the morning). We are also looking forward to visiting my parents tomorrow for a delayed Thanksgiving celebration. Hopefully our nine days in the area will allow us time to catch up with all of our Northeast Texas friends before we head back to be with our son, his fiancée and her family for an after Christmas celebration. When we first arrived to Longview our foremost stop was Jake’s Feed...
