Texarkana, Arkansas


I am convinced that we spent the night, last night, in the RV Park from Hell.  We were sitting watching a movie when the electric started causing everything to flicker.  Donnie went out and wiggled it a little bit, and it seemed to be alright.  Then, when we got ready for bed, it started flickering again, so I asked Donnie to just unplug us.  I didn’t want to burn up while we were asleep.  It got pretty cold, but our batteries were strong enough to push the hot air in the furnace, so we didn’t freeze.  This morning we hooked up to the 30 amp. offered for just long enough to make coffee, then we took off.  What a waste of money.


We are in Texarkana, Ark. now.  We are in a park called Sunrise and it is located just north of Texarkana about 8 miles.  A really great Park and everything works really well.  They have cable, very strong Wi-Fi, 50 amps, and all on a very large pull-through site.  Here are a couple of pictures.




Compared to last night, this is like being in Heaven.  They also gave me a Military discount from my Son.  That is so cool.


I am trying to get my laundry caught up again.  I have really fallen behind on my domestic duties.  I am sure once we reach our final destination, I will get back in the swing of things. 


Want to give you Karen’s address that I failed to give you a couple of days ago.  And, to welcome my newest followers, Randy and Pam.  Welcome aboard all of you, and hope you enjoy the ride.  If you click on their names, you can check out their sites.


I will talk to you again tomorrow, if the Wi-Fi is good.  Stay safe… :)

Too bad about the first campground. Good thing you decided to unplug from the power.

Hey there Pidge!
I didn't know you had a blog!! I'm a follower now :)

Sorry to hear your first campsite was so crappy! I'm glad you unplugged instead of risking turning your RV into a giant zapper!

Isn't it the truth that we don't always appreciate a good campsite until we've experienced a really bad one!

So glad to see you got into a great campground, I have found in our travels that the ones that let their electric run unto disrepair are below grade everywhere else..be safe out there. Sam & Donna...

Glad to see you're in a nice big site with good power and wifi! Too bad about the first spot but at least you're out of there now so no worries!

Unfortunately, there are a fair number of parks with poor power. I always choose not use poor power. I also use a surge guard, always,

Glad the next stop was good.

Sounds like a scarey place to be, I'm glad you've moved on!
