The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum – OKC

I have a bit of a confession…..all my life, I wanted to be Annie Oakley! When I was little, I used to sit for hours listening to my 45 rpm record player. One of the records was songs about Annie Oakley – right then and there, she became my hero! So it’s not too surprisingContinue reading “The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum – OKC”


What a tragedy for our nation and all the victims. It’s one thing to hear about this on the news but yet another to be here in person and get a fuller grasp of the magnitude of this devastating event. Being here made me think of last year when we visited the 9-11 memorial –Continue reading “OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL AND MUSEUM”

We’re Not In Kansas Anymore! Sites on Route 66

Nope! We’re in O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A, OKLAHOMA!!! (Makes me want to break into song!) We’ll be here for a total of 5 days and we’re focusing on three major areas of interest. First, we want to visit several Route 66 icons – did you know that the longest stretch of the famous highway is through Oklahoma? Next,Continue reading “We’re Not In Kansas Anymore! Sites on Route 66”


Well……again, this is not our favorite park. If you like large concrete parking lots, then this is the place for you. There are no trees and patches of grass between sites – just lots of cement and close neighbors. The plus side is there is no dust like our last campground. I know, I soundContinue reading “AIR CAPITAL RV PARK – WICHITA, KN”

West Omaha/NE Lincoln KOA Holiday

While we tend to frequent KOA’s with some regularity and mostly enjoy our stay, we both agree that this KOA ranks lower on the scale than most. The sharply curved entrance to the KOA was a dirt road filled with pot holes making it difficult for rigs of any size to maneuver. This road conditionContinue reading “West Omaha/NE Lincoln KOA Holiday”


One may accuse me of being a bit biased since I worked in the office here for three months, but I can honestly say this is a really nice campground. The location is ideal as it’s about 3/4 mile from downtown, 1/2 mile to the famous flea market (held every Tuesday and Wednesday) and surroundedContinue reading “SHIPSHEWANA CAMPGROUND SOUTH PARK – Shipshewana, IN”


Many of you have been asking if we are traveling again this summer and the answer is “yes”. But we decided to try something a bit different this year….instead of moving from one town to the next, we spent 3 months in Shipshewana, Indiana! I accepted a work camp position at Shipshewana Campground South Park,Continue reading “HI, EVERYONE…..YES, WE’RE BACK ON THE ROAD!”

Bowald-fest Our annual family reunion!

This year Bowald-fest was held in Michigan City, Indiana which proves to be pretty centrally located for most family members. It’s just about equal distance for those living in Indiana, Chicago-land and Central Illinois. Marj and Larry and we parked in a campground and hosted Friday night’s weinie roast and campfire. The rest of theContinue reading “Bowald-fest Our annual family reunion!”
