Texas Bound

West Memphis

We found a nice RV park along the Mississippi River in West Memphis, Arkansas 

Tom Sawyers RV park gives you a great view of the Mississippi river and all the boats and barges that travel by. 


 We tried to stay ahead of the cold weather but unfortunately ran into severe weather with a touch of tornadoes at a beautiful brand new(5 years old) Catharines Landing RV park in Sulphur Springs, Arkansas. 

After the torrential rain finally cleared we hit the road tying to stay in front of the cold weather breathing down our necks and end up staying at Fort Stockton RV Park just outside Dallas, Texas
We spent a few days in the Dallas area and explored the area ending up at the Stockyards in Fort Worth

The Stockyards have a long and rich history of large cattle drives and still do a replica drive through the stockyards twice a day.




We took some backroads heading to Fort Stockton, Texas and ended up staying at a KOA in San Angelo, Texas
The drive through Texas certainly takes you through many different terrains and landscapes.
There is a long history in Fort Stockton as it was the farthest western outpost at one time and has a house not in the best shape but is the original from 1852.
The original house, jail and saloon are still standing with the saloon turned into a winery and restaurant.




Off to New Mexico and not doing 80.
We are somewhat behind on our posts but will be updating much quicker and more often now.
