We spent 3 nights in Oakley, KS. at the High Plains campground. It is a very nice well run park. I did check out some local museums and enjoyed them a lot. There is a lot of history in the area, including Fort Wallace. There is nothing left of the fort but there is still the graveyard with some noted graves in it. Many legends of the old west who either stayed or served at Fort Wallace include Wild Bill Hickok, William Comstock and George Armstrong Custer along with his seventh cavalry. If ever in the area the Fort Wallace Museum is a very good stop to visit the past.

The city of oakley has erected a monument to Buffalo Bill, It is hard to miss as it sits alongside the highway on your way through oakley.

We left kansas and drove to Loveland, CO. Where we are still located until in the morning. We have visited with my nieces and nephew that live here, We grilled burgers last night and had a great visit.  Loveland has really grown since the last time we were here, but it is still a nice area to visit. Vicki's toe was giving her fits so took her to the foot Dr. nurse said they could cut it off and we could call her Stunpy, but they didn't, gave her a prescription for antibiotics and told her to soak it good in epsom salt water.
We have decided to bypass South Dakota and just head straight up to Montana.
If all goes well tomorrow should find us in Buffalo, WY.
I should mention that we are staying at the Riverview RV park and Campground just west of Loveland. It is a very nice park, we are backed up to the Big Thonpson River.
Until later you all take care and God Bless.

A very windy travel day, we left Stinnett, TX around 10:00 AM. Wind was blowing out of the Northwest, Oh good the direction we were headed. Wind speeds varied between 25 mph and 55 mph gusts. This was the worst fuel mileage that we have ever gotten towing. Arrived in Oakley, KS about 3:00 PM and checked into the High Plains Campground. This is a very nice park, nice and clean with long pull through sites. We will be here until tuesday morning. The wind is still howling outside and it is cooling off for the evening.

last night was a very fun and enjoyable night. We went to Amarillo for a Miranda Lambert concert. She puts on a really good show. I can't say the same for the opening group, Canadian Ragweed. I was very dissapointed in there performance. We went to dinner at a very nice Mexican restaurant called the Acapulco, food was good and service was good.

We arrived in Stinnett, TX last Monday late afternoon. We didn't even have the trailer set up when Donna showed up. We have been busy visiting with Vicki's old school mates. Went over to Rick and Donna's for dinner last night, thanks again for such a great meal.
Tonight we are going to Amarillo for a Miranda Lambert concert, looking forward to some good entertainment. I will let you all know how it was.
We are leaving here Saturday for Oakley, KS, then on to Loveland, CO for a couple of days.
We are staying in the City RV park here in Stinnett. no amenities but the first 3 nights are free, after 3 nights they charge $10.00 per night. Full hook up 30 amp level sites.
Here is some pictures of Rick and Donna's back yard. They have a wonderful pond full of koi and gold fish.
Until later god bless and take care everyone.

We left Louisiana this morning, drove through lots of rain. Tonight we are in Ardmore, OK. at Ardmore RV park. The park is nothing to special. site is very unlevel and tight to get in and out of.
We will be on the road in the morning for Stinnett, TX., Vicki's childhood stomping grounds.
This is going to be a test to see if Vicki is reading our blog. She does not know it but I have tickets to Miranda Lambert concert in Amarillo on the 22nd. So we will see if she is reading this or not
Once again I would like to thank Cathie and Owen for their ever so kind hospitality the last 14 weeks. We will miss you two, but do plan a return trip just not sure when.
So for today everyone take care and God Bless you all.

We have been staying at some very dear friends here in Louisiana. I would like to thank Owen and Cathie for their gracious hospitality and making us feel like we are at home here. As most of you know they live on Darbonne Lake, the setting here is real nice. There are lots of birds and wildlife to keep us entertained here, and we have enjoyed watching all the birds and wildlife here. Here is a couple of pics of our friends.

I received this e-mail from a friend about how to start your day, Yep it worked for me.


1. Open a new file in your computer.

2. Name it 'Barack Obama'.

3. Send it to the Recycle Bin.

4. Empty the Recycle Bin.

5. Your PC will ask you: 'Do you really

want to get rid of 'Barack Obama?

6. Firmly Click 'Yes.'

7. Feel better?


Tomorrow we'll do Nancy Pelosi!
