Chicot State Park, Louisiana – Day 4

The motorhome is parked at Chicot State Park near Ville Platte, Louisiana. We are scheduled to depart here tomorrow.

Yesterday was a delightful sunny, 69 degree, day with a gentle breeze. We had a very leisurely day…doing minor repairs and some regular maintenance on the motorhome and Bronco. We took the Bronco to see other areas of the park. Here are some of the photos that I took…

In other news…some sad news for me…

I received a phone call a few days ago from Ceecee Canvasser telling me that my very good friend Aaron, age 73,  suffered a stroke while dancing…which he loved to do. Yesterday she called again telling me he had passed away. I first met Aaron and CeeCee back in 1997 and over the years developed a very close relationship. Somewhere along the way we got to calling each other…Uncle. Uncle Aaron and I shared many, many hours of interesting conversation together. I shall miss Uncle Aaron greatly. Rest in peace amigo…


Marys husband George was 73 years old when he passed away in 2000. Mary and I will both become 73 later this year. Hmmmm….

Enjoying beautiful state parks is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
