Petiquette On The Road

Petiquette is the art of being considerate of others while traveling with your dogs, or even cats. I’ve encountered a lot of non-petiquette behavior in the past 15 months but as Michelle Obama says, “When they go low, we go high.” You too, can set the bar high as you travel the country with yourContinue reading “Petiquette On The Road”

Dog Parks in Branson, MO

I’ve only been here for 5 days but plan on staying all summer so we’ve already checked out some of the dog-friendly entertainment. I’m staying in Hollister, just across the river from Branson and a quick 3 minute drive. Branson does tend to get crowded, traffic-wise, especially on weekends in the summer so I wantedContinue reading “Dog Parks in Branson, MO”

Joplin KOA Journey, Joplin, MO

This KOA takes hospitality to a whole new level. It doesn’t state on the website whether this KOA is family owned or not but the employees really do treat you like family, or at least like very welcome guests. It’s a relaxing full service KOA in mature oaks but conveniently just off I-44 in SouthwestContinue reading “Joplin KOA Journey, Joplin, MO”

Oklahoma City East/Choctaw KOA, Oklahoma

Oklahoma City East/Choctaw KOA (Kampgrounds of America) is just 16 miles east of downtown Oklahoma City on I40. The website states that it’s an award-winning KOA in a shaded country setting. I spent two months in South Oklahoma City at a campground that was in the city and I was ready for a change beforeContinue reading “Oklahoma City East/Choctaw KOA, Oklahoma”

Things to Come

They always say to post often on blogs so your readers don’t get bored or leave.  This is a travel blog and I won’t be traveling for awhile so I thought I would write about future plans so at least you know what to expect in months to come.  My way of traveling will beContinue reading “Things to Come”

Parking It (for awhile)

The end of May marked my one year anniversary of living full time in the motorhome with my pets.  During that time, we visited 13 states, some more than one time around, and over 55 RV parks.  We stayed as little as 12 hours in a few places and as much as six weeks inContinue reading “Parking It (for awhile)”

Great Plains State Park, Mountain Home, OK

I was able to book one week here with a full hook up site after getting a recommendation from a camper in New Mexico.  This state park is on the border near Texas and is quite close to Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.  The biggest attraction is probably the huge lake, Tom Sneed Reservoir, which isContinue reading “Great Plains State Park, Mountain Home, OK”

Horizon Sands RV Park, Altus, OK

This park caters mainly to contractors and extended stays but they were able to accommodate me for three days and I saw one or two other trailers pulling in and out while I was there.  The owner was very friendly but she is retiring May 15th and the new owners are a group that ownContinue reading “Horizon Sands RV Park, Altus, OK”

Caprock Canyon State Park, Quitaque,TX

When you are about 10 miles away, you will see nothing but flat plains for miles and miles and wonder if you are in the right place.  All of a sudden, at about 5 to 6 miles out, you will start seeing the canyons and the hills.  It’s quite an eye-opening sight.  There’s a reasonContinue reading “Caprock Canyon State Park, Quitaque,TX”

Oasis State Park, Portales, NM

This is a holiday weekend (Easter) and I wasn’t able to get a site with hookups so we are technically “boondocking” for 3 nights although I paid for the site.  $10 a night plus a $12 fee for booking online. This small state park is just a few miles from Cannon Air Force Base andContinue reading “Oasis State Park, Portales, NM”
