Post Our camping visit to Little Rock, AR this past weekend...
We just took our '87 Westy Camper GL on a short three-day trip from St. Louis to Little Rock, AR and back. We tried to take routes that kept us off the Interstates and on country highways and scenic backroads as much as possible. Longer driving times, but much more interesting! The Camper never hiccupped once, was well-behaved. Hot as hell out there, but we have a small room A/C unit that we plug into the drivers roll-down window to keep cool while camping.

Why Little Rock in steamy July? Well, we had won tickets in the ticket lottery for the taping of the PBS Antiques Roadshow being filmed there this past Saturday, and we love the show and have been to a taping before (actually got selected to have our appraisal filmed for PBS) back in 2012.

Here we are in front of the Clinton Presidential Library/museum in the Vanagon. A very nice Presidential Library/museum, if you ever get a chance to tour it, do so!

Getting to tour the Clinton Library, attending the Roadshow and getting our item appraisals, and dining out rounded out the L.R. visit, and lots of windy and hilly country roads in both directions filled out the weekend nicely. Probably put about 700 miles on the camper, and she finally crossed 65,000 miles on the way home.

I gotta go out today and give her a nice wash and dry and put her away for a well-deserved rest!

Chad and Kim with the Kong Bus went to the Antiques Roadshow event this weekend too. I'm not sure if they took a bus as well though.

Damn! I wish we had run into them! It would be fun to see what they brought for an appraisal! I didn't see the "Kong Bus" anywhere or I'd have remembered seeing it! Downtown Little Rock is a pretty cool place...
