Jul 13, 2020 - Oklahoma Memorial

Oklahoma City Memorial. Well, we traveled two looooooong days between Mesa Verde NP and the Oklahoma City Memorial. I think most Americans know of the Memorial and the event of 19 April 1995. I won’t go into the description of the event that occurred at 9:02 that day; however, I will say if you have never visited this Memorial and Museum, and you are anywhere with 100 miles of it, you should really take the time to visit. As an extra: being there at dusk in special. The lights you see in the pics taken represent a lighted chair for each...

2020 to NC

Jul 9, 2020 - Oklahoma City

Thur., July 9th – It was a long, hot drive across upper Texas into Oklahoma with temps at 104* at the rest stop along our route. We were very quick to unhook and head for Pearl’s Crabtown restaurant for a great seafood dinner in downtown Oklahoma City. Our evening was spent strolling the winding canal of the downtown riverwalk and taking in the world’s largest bronze sculpture collection depicting the 1889 “land run” that marked the beginning of the settlement of Oklahoma. This will be the last point of interest on this year’s 6 week...

Westward Bound Again

Mar 21, 2020 - On our way Home!

Just a quick update for now. Hope everyone is doing well and keeping ahead of this nasty virus that is moving around the world. We are doing fine. We left the valley this morning and are making a very fast trip home. It has been a good trip even though it rained for a lot of the day, so far with the only stops at 2 gas stations and one rest stop. Meals were eaten in the van. We haven't had any problem finding what we needed. We stopped for the night in Oklahoma City and out of curiosity I asked the clerk if there was a breakfast. She smiled...

Dec 16, 2019 - Countdown to Panama Canal Cruise

Today was full of little odds and ends to get us ready to go. I finished packing, printed our boarding passes, ordered the airport transportation, stopped the mail, picked up the house a little, and emptied the refrig of any foods that won't be any good 2 weeks from now. We had enough leftovers to make dinner at home, so it was an easy evening. I contacted a few friends and neighbors to keep an eye on the house while we're gone. I'll set the alarm, but it's always good to have some extra eyes on the place too. Last chore was to put the car...

Oct 2, 2019 - The Last Song

I’m so grateful that each new day is a surprise! I used to think I wanted to know what the future held for me, but I don’t feel that way anymore. Why? Because if you would have told me in May 2016 that I would sell my home and everything I own; purchase a small RV; and hit the road alone with just my pups, I would have told you that you were crazier than me! But I did. And we did. And it was the most amazing journey of a lifetime. But, as with all things, this journey has reached its end. Without question, I will look back on 2016, 2017 and...

Gypsy Journey

Sep 20, 2019 - Oklahoma City to Amarillo

Route 66, or is it? Day 16 It seems strange to wake up in someone’s home. The owner had said she would be going to work at 6.30 but we didn’t hear her leave. Once up and showered we have coffee and then set off to visit the Oklahoma National Memorial. This commemorates the victims of the bombing by two right-wing domestic terrorists. On the corner of the crossing there is a statue of Jesus weeping opposite a wall with 168 niches, each one representing one of the victims of the bombing. This is built on the site of a part of the cathedral...

Sep 16, 2019 - 28th STOP - Oklahoma City, OK

9/16/19 - After we left the Amarillo City limits it was 40 miles of Wind Turbines and vast stretches of fields growing all kinds of stuff. Flat, flat, flat as far as the eye could see. As we got closer to Oklahoma City, the towns started to get bigger and the topography got more hilly with some small canyons. Everything was a lot more green than TX. Temps will be going up and when we get to West Memphis, AR (the stop after Van Buren, AR, our next stop) the temps will be 103. We will be right beside the Mississippi River, so hopefully it...

Sep 9, 2019 - Oklahoma City-The Big Friendly

After leaving Salina we drove a whopping 95 miles to Wichita where we spent a few nights. The primary reason for going there was a text from our son-in-law saying he would be in Wichita for business. We met him after he finished work and visited one of the more amazing sights in Wichita, the Keeper of the Plains. This 44-foot statue stands at the confluence of the Arkansas and Little Arkansas rivers and is elevated on a 30-foot rock promontory. It commemorates the local tribes that used to inhabit the Wichita area. We walked along the river...

May 18, 2019 - Amarillo to Oklahoma City

This morning we left Amarillo, Texas for Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, a distance of 264 miles. We left the park at 0800 and arrived at the Rockwell RV Park located on the western portion of Oklahoma City at 1330. As we left the park in Amarillo the sky was clear and the wind was very light. The temperature was cool which got Ross into his sweatshirt when he went outside to begin disconnecting everything so we could leave the campground. As we got onto I-40 east bound Ross noticed a well-defined weather front with some very high cumulus clouds...
