Slowly heading further north and a bit east still very nice weather.

Where are we today ?

        Much cooler this morning way down to 58 f.. But up early as usually got a few walkabouts, computing and coffees done and on the road at 8:30 am. Have a rather long drive today 334 miles, to get to our next destination. Kind of the longer way on road we have never traveled before. So will be nice.  The direct route takes us over some mountains and narrow twisty roads that we don't much care for so this worked great for us today.
lots of nice 2 lane roads, not much traffic and nice scenery
      A good travel day though it was overcast most of it, but not much wind and no rain until the last 30 minutes a light drizzle.
one stretch on a good toll road, very little traffic and
great roads cost $8.00 for 70 miles
worth it for us
Crossed many lakes and rivers, very scenic
     Shortly after 1 pm we pulled into a Pilot/Flying J  to fuel our coach and us as well. We like these for the RV fuel lanes and using our Good Sam card get a 3 cent a gallon discount. Suzie checked out the food counter and had a craving for a pizza slice. They have a new one there Chicken Alfredo, 2 large slices for 5 bucks and using our Good Sam card we also got 2 French Vanilla cappuccinos for free!.
the chicken alfreda pizza was very tasty
the free french vanilla gave us another kickstart
we good to go some more
            Then about 4 pm we pulled into another of our membership parks, (Eagles Landing, used to be Bear's Den) in Grove Oklahoma, one we have been to many times in the past and love it here. No overnight fees for full hookups, nice sites, (cable tv if we want it) and free wifi at the clubhouse.
         Just missed our good friends from Ontario Bill and Patsy they left yesterday.
great travel day but the last 30 minutes a light rain
all settled in and hooked up
satellite dish done
and relaxing by 5 pm, perfect
       During our Happy hour decided what to do for supper.  Hmm, easy choice, we have some leftover pork tenderloin  so my simple version of pork stroganoff recipe here , quick and easy. Only difference was we had a salad instead of the squash and no sour cream, still was very tasty. less calories too.
yummy? Yes it was
this was our travel day, very enjoyable
     This long travel day come with a reward. Kick back a relax for a week here, just cause we can and some not too bad weather before we head back on home in a couple weeks.
     Thanks for stopping by and really hope you had a wonderful day as well.

Where have we been this Winter


  1. Glad you made safely George. Behind you to the left is that white 5th wheel, behind it is an Airstream, they are from Haliburton. Nice people, Carolyn and Ross, we went and introduced ourselves when we found out they were from Ontario and their trailer came from CanAm. Spent a couple of hours exchanging stories over HAPPY HOUR. Mentioned that it was the two of you who we first talked to about going full time. Hope you get to meet them.

    1. Thanks Bill we are settled in nicely here for a week and hope to meet up with them, You guys take care and travel safely tomorrow back to Canada. See y'all at some point this summer I am sure.

      This is the 3rd time we have had free coffee showing our our Good Sam Card when we make a food purchase, maybe it build up points or something., we not complaining.
