Gateway to Wonderful RV Destinations
Written by Bob and Pam Stephens
The Arkansas River Valley is really is a wonderful RV destination! Close to the center of the state, the Arkansas River runs mostly east to West in this area along with a southerly flow. This area is warmer in the summer than it is in the Northern end of the state. If you enjoy boating, fishing and hunting, this is a great area to visit. The Army Corps of Engineers has some of the best campgrounds in the state right along

Southern Arkansas RV Camping- From A- Alligators to D- Diamonds! by Bob and Pam Stephens
From Alligators to Diamondsâ€¦I know which one Iâ€™d prefer! Southern Arkansas is more of an agricultural farming area, with fields of cotton, soy and rice. There are Cypress trees growing out of the water and many dead tree stumps sticking out of the water, reminiscent of Louisiana's swamps. The lakes are not for waterskiing in some cases or swimming. Some of the lakes have dangerous residents: alligat

Have you ever noticed that road signs are a lot like life? Weâ€™ve gone down the road in our motorhome and sometimes I get bored, just sitting! Big surprise! Sometimes I am reading, sometimes I am crocheting, but sometimes I am lost in a daydream. At other times, I am â€œobservingâ€ the signs of life!
â€¢ â€œWrong Wayâ€ or â€œDo not enterâ€ are important signs when driving a 38-foot motorhome! You really could end up where you donâ€™t belong! A one-way road is definitely

I was just thinkingâ€¦Iâ€™ve posted a lot of our RV photos taken throughout Canada here on the FMCA website, (see Album â€œOh Canadaâ€) and it really made me feel like I had just taken the trip all over again! And it put me in a very nostalgic mood remembering some of the things that we spoke about in the days before it took place!
During the planning of our trip, all of us got together to consider what we wanted to do â€œas a groupâ€ to make it a terrific experi

Sounds like the question that was popular many years ago, â€œItâ€™s 10 oâ€™clock. Do you know where your child is?â€ Perhaps this is a sore subject, but do you know what your spouse has planned for their (and thus your) retirement? Okay, he wants to fish and whittle toys for grandsons. Great!! Eventually that will wear off! You can only fish or go bowling so many times before coming to the conclusion that this isnâ€™t what you thought it would be! Have you had the discu

As Baby Boomers, we have collectively set quite a few trends and even a few fads. Because our ranks are many, Boomers have lined the pockets of many a toy maker with the likes of hula hoops, Davey Crockett coonskin caps, Tiny Tears dolls, and Tinker Toys; and many a gal my age had a poodle skirt or two and watched the phenomenon of American Bandstand, oohing and aawing over the latest teen idols and their hits.
It seems as Boomers, our generation is doing it ag
