We are in the Springridge RV Park, 499 Springridge Road, Clinton, Mississippi 39056, 601-924-0947. It is about five blocks south of I-20 at Exit 36.

We have stayed here about a dozen times over the past ten years. It is about a day's run from home. It is full hook-ups and very convenient for a one night stay. The sites are mostly pull throughs long enough to stay hooked up. The RV sites are in the middle of a mobile home park that is very nicely kept up. It hasn't changed in ten years. The rate is $29 including all taxes.

I'll take a picture of Fred and the Girls before we leave and post it tonight.

Brian

Lucy broke camp in Jackson this morning, and got on the road fairly early. We traveled west over to Vicksburg where we crossed the Mississippi River and into Louisiana. We followed US 65 north through Louisiana and into Arkansas. We continued up to Little Rock where we found Lucy a really nice campsite in Burns City Park.

It was still in the high 90's during our travel today. We hit a couple of rain storms along the way which helped with the heat a bit.

We covered about 260 miles today. We stayed away from the Interstates and traveled most of the way on US and State highways.

Tonight's pictures include:

Clinton TV Park
Crop duster in Mississippi
Mississippi River into Louisiana
Main Street, Tullulah, Louisiana
Transylvania, Louisiana
Back road into Lake Providence, Louisiana
Arkansas State line on US 65
Grain elevators in Magehee, Arkansas

Burns Park in North Little Rock is very nice. It is water/electric only. The sites are long enough for us to stay hooked-up. There is lots of trees and shade. The rate was $22 including tax.

Brian,
I am beginning to think that you should become my travel agent!
By the time you get to California, I'll have a list of perfectly selected parks and all the attractions that I need to see......

Much thanks, we're limited to a short trip to Sonoma in a couple of days. And of course the trip to the dealership for some warranty work.

Ricky just hasn't been used as a name for our rolling stock yet. Our other tow vehicle (Olivia) already a name.

We broke camp in Little Rock this morning and headed north. We stayed off the Interstate and followed US 65 through the rest of Arkansas and into Missouri. We stopped in Clinton, Arkansas to ship some Moose Tags. The Post Office was right next to the Clinton Super Wal-Mart, so we stopped for supplies and lunch.

We continued into Missouri and decided to stop early as weather was closing in on us. We have never visited Branson, Missouri and we thought that this would be a good opportunity to see it.

We got Lucy settled in at a really nice campground in time to get her set up before the rains came. We are at Bronson's Ozark Country Campground. It's really nice with five point hook-ups and a $20 Passport America rate. We covered about 175 miles today. We plan to spend a couple of days here.

Tonight's pictures include:

-One of the runaway truck ramps along US 65 in Arkansas. There are several severe downgrades. Fred's exhaust brake sure was nice to have.
- Ozark countryside.
- Entering Missouri.
- Lucy's campsite in Branson.

Next time you are in the Little Rock area, try Lake Maumelle Corp of Engineers campground. Just down the road from Burns Park where you stayed. It is a fabulous park with sites right on the Arkansas River. Our favorite. Safe journeys!

Thank you so much for that tip. We will put that on our list.

We are in Thermopolis, Wyoming at the hot springs-- heading East and home to arrive August 3. Have been in Cody, Powell, Yellowstone, Tetons, and Big Horn Mountains for the last 10 days. It has been a great trip with lots to see. Enjoy it--also try to get to Mount Rushmore on your way out or back.

Hi Brian.

Don't know what you've got planned in Branson, but if you've got questions about things here, just give me a call and I'll try to get you pointed in the right direction.
