4/19 - Spent the morning at Fort Smith doing some touristy things. Went to Miss Laura's Social Club, to the Fort Smith National Historic Site and to the history museum. I didn't use my camera, so will have to download pictures once Curt gets his off his new camera. Then went to Oklahoma, which didn't have the best roads in the world, then on to Texas.

4/20 - Last night we stayed at East Fork Campground, a Corps of Engineers campground, near Wylie, TX. I don't think we would go back again. It was $30 for water and electric, which did both work, but the park is getting rundown. Only a little bit by the parking pads were mowed. They told us when we checked in that the bathrooms in the shower area didn't work. The pool area looked like it hasn't been used for quite a while.When we left this morning and used their dump site, it was pretty muddy there.  I thought Corps of Engineers sites were better kept up. Oh, that was the first campground we've seen that has spike strips when leaving the campground!

We spent the morning today cleaning up the motorhome, putting clothes, etc. away. Actually got rid of the bags of clothes and could use the shower. After that we called some Apple stores to see if we could get an Ipad. Left the campground and got to the store, spent over an hour there trying to get everything set up and e-mail verification, which we never did get. If not by tomorrow, we'll have to call their main center and see if we get it fixed.

On our way from Wylie to Frisco, we saw some beautiful houses, and then across the street were some we weren't sure if people actually even lived there any more. Some places with horses, goats or sheep in their front yard. We've noticed a lot of places where they build an area where the houses all look the same; same set up, color, shingles, etc.  Kind of boring.

Got out of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area finally. That is not a trip we'd want to take too often with a motorhome. We couldn't figure out how to change our GPS to stay off the toll roads, so I was on the computer with the map trying to get around what the GPS said. Needless to say, we only got off track twice. We were so glad to get out of there!.

Staying at Cleburn tonight.
