Clinton RV Park, Clinton, Arkansas

Clinton RV Park This is not a traveler’s RV park but pleasant for two days as I passed through. It’s on Highway 65 south between Branson, Missouri and Little Rock, Arkansas. When I checked in, the lady at the counter was very personable and chatty. However, she didn’t give me a map or say whereContinue reading “Clinton RV Park, Clinton, Arkansas”

Escapees Turkey Creek RV Village, Hollister, MO

Don’t let the Hollister address dissuade you as this RV Park is really only 3 minutes away from Branson Landing and historic downtown Branson. I like the fact that it’s across the bridge and not right in town yet so convenient to all the shows, shopping, and museums. If you aren’t an Escapees member, theContinue reading “Escapees Turkey Creek RV Village, Hollister, MO”

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”

May 22, 2011

Driving through Joplin takes you back in time to a simpler era long ago with clapboard houses and country stores. As the character Scout said at the beginning of the movie, To Kill a Mockingbird, “{it} was a tired old town.” But as I was driving through Joplin and enjoying the neighborhoods and the fact thatContinue reading “May 22, 2011”

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”

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)”
