El Paso TX (Ft Bliss)

Hi all you blog fans.We Arrived 20th Oct and are parked at Ft Bliss fam camp. Our Grandson Josh is stationed here and the 22nd was his 20th birthday.Offered to take him out or cook for him he said he was ready for a home cooked meal. We had a great visit and its good to see him growing into a fine young man. He is adjusting to the army life and likes what he is doing but if he told us what it is he would have to kill us. (LOL) Also Saturday we had my Cousins daughter and family down from Las Cruses Barbie,Mike, and there daughter and two grand kids a 5 and 2 year old nice looking kids. I wished I could have a third of there energy. We had a great visit its been many years sense We've seen them. We seen Josh again last evening and maybe again tonight,anyway we will leave here tomorrow and land in Tucson for a while. I know you all will be on pins & needles waiting on my next post. until then safe travels.

Altus OK (Altus AFB fam camp)

Just a few lines to let those great folks that follow my blog know where we are.When we left Branson we stayed overnight in Chandler OK on Wed.the 13th and arrived in Altus the 14th. We plan on leaving here Monday the 18th with plans to overnight in Lubbock 18th and overnight in Pecos the 19th. Our plans are to stop in El Paso to visit Josh (our grandson) who is stationed there at Ft Bliss. Will update from there. Altus AFB is a training base for KC-135s C-17s & C-5s air traffic is very busy.There are 7 FHU campsites with 50 amp for $11.00 nightly and have been mostly full so its best to call ahead and make a reservation The base is very clean and modern. We have had great weather and a good relaxing stay here so until next post safe travels.

Branson Mo

We arrived in Branson on Tuesday Staying at the SKP park in Hosister. We really like this area and the weather has been outstanding.Opened up my e-mail Wed. morning and found out that John & Lora Newby (Our escapee 2007 classmates and friends) were in Springfield visiting a friend and wanted to see if we could meet up somewhere. Well after much thought (10 seconds)gave them a call and set up lunch at Mel's hard luck dinner in Branson. Mel's dinner has good food and the employees sing for you, they are all inspiring entertainer's trying to make a go at it in the music industry and are very good. J&L arrived with their friend Mary a very nice lady that worked with Lora in Alaska and is considering the RV lifestyle. We had a great lunch then drove down to Branson Landing and walked around the shops and lake area which is very scenic. We got caught up on our summer travels then bid farewell. (Safe travels dear friends) Kathy and I secured tickets to the Ray Stevens show for Thursday evening we have wanted to see him for a long time but he has not been here when we have been in the past,but we finely caught up with him YEA!!! He put on a great show and performed his hits from past years, it was a very good day and evening. We will leave Wed the 13th and head west to AZ until next stop. Safe travels.
