Oh Bother!

Requisite chores when you’re full-time “Oh, bother!” as Pooh would say. People excitedly comment on the amount of freedom I have living full time in a motorhome and traveling but it’s not all a life of leisure. I find there are still a few items of responsibility I must endure and have recently met theContinue reading “Oh Bother!”

Dellanera RV Park, Galveston Island, TX

Dellanera is a beach front RV Park just west of the busy part of Galveston where the piers and attractions are and is run by the City. I think if I had originally had a site on the west end of the park rather than the east end, I would have been happier and stayedContinue reading “Dellanera RV Park, Galveston Island, TX”

Rusk KOA Holiday, Rusk, Texas

This is a KOA Holiday in a really nice area with all pull-thru sites with full hook ups. It was quite chilly while I was here with temperatures dipping down into the low 30s but I can imagine this is a popular spot during the summer. It’s quite expensive at about $49 a night. IContinue reading “Rusk KOA Holiday, Rusk, Texas”

Texarkana KOA, Texarkana, Texas

I wasn’t quite sure when I checked in that I would like it because my site was right by the front entrance alongside a highway frontage road. Plus, when I checked in, I was the only RV for 3 rows until you get to the longer term people. But it turned out ok and IContinue reading “Texarkana KOA, Texarkana, Texas”

Elk Rock State Park, Knoxville, Iowa

It’s almost the off season, end of September, and so the park does have a little different atmosphere, fall leaves, some rain, and empty during the week and almost full on the weekend. This large state park has a “regular” or non-equestrian campground area and an equestrian area. Elk Rock State Park is on RedContinue reading “Elk Rock State Park, Knoxville, Iowa”

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”

Tulsa NE / Will Rogers Downs KOA, Claremore, OK

This KOA Journey is about 33 miles east of downtown Tulsa with tolls or 37 miles without and about 85 miles from Joplin, MO. I took the turnpike (Hwy 44) from Choctaw and the toll for a motorhome towing was $12.25 at one stop and $2.25 at the final stop. Save your receipts so youContinue reading “Tulsa NE / Will Rogers Downs KOA, Claremore, OK”

The First 200 Miles…

Towing a car, that is. I spent my first year full-timing in my motorhome without a car but bought a manual transmission small vehicle while I was in Oklahoma City for two months. The second month there involved a few weeks of getting the car ready to tow. My first 200 miles consisted of drivingContinue reading “The First 200 Miles…”

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”
