We’re in West Monroe, Louisiana for the night. So, if you’re in West Monroe you must visit Duck Dynasty.

We’re still on our way to Alabama. We decided to stop in West Monroe, Louisiana for the night.
Driving on Louisiana roads can drain you pretty quickly. It gets extremely bumpy during some stretches of road. Our goal was to make it all the way through the state, but we were getting weary and found an RV park. I took Daisy out for her walk and didn’t see any of the usual dog owner warnings. Instead, there’s one warning sign about alligators.
Here’s your sign.
Well, we failed! Our goal was to make it to The Grand Canyon and we only made it as far as Santa Fe, NM. We were just having too much fun and spending too much time at the fun stops along the way. Plus, our journey started in Central Florida so, we had to drive quite a distance just to reach Route 66 in Oklahoma City.
We didn’t have a travel schedule for a reason. I sure didn’t want to be gone for 15 days and return absolutely exhausted and feeling like we all we did was drive.
Mission accomplished! We meandered off and on Route 66, saw some fun sites, ate amazing food, and had an overall fun and relaxing trip. We will cover Arizona and Colorado on the next trip.
We are currently making our way back east to Alabama. Since I don’t have fun vacation pics to show on our trip back, I figured I would share the goofy Daisy Mae. She sure is a good traveler and she absolutely loves the Motorhome.
Oh, and we are headed to our next “first” adventure in Alabama. More on that next week…
If you happen to be driving through Clarendon, Texas stop into Grumpy’s Pizza on US 287. Extremely friendly and Texan.
Next stop: Santa Fe, NMThe last two days have been filled with all of the strange and entertaining roadside “must sees” of Route 66.
It seems that the goal was to display “the biggest” or “the tallest” or… There was clearly no concern as to what the biggest or tallest novelty was. Cowboy, Ox, Shoe, Tower…
Speaking of towers, check out this gem. All 4 legs are the same length but the center water pipe it too tall. It was too costly to fix so they just left it that way.
This cross stands 190 ft tall and is believed to be the largest in the Western Hemisphere. It includes beautiful night time lighting and all of the stations of the cross below.
The closer we get to New Mexico, the more creative the “art”.

Greetings from Calumet, OK!
We finally made it to Route 66…kind of. We are traveling on 40 which parallels and joins Route 66 on and off. The problem is that parts of the old 66 just aren’t fit to travel in a vehicle, let alone a giant RV pulling a Jeep.
This is our breakfast/gas/shopping stop for the morning. We are eating a Southwest breakfast with tortillas and stuffed jalapeños. Yummy!!
Off to the next stop…
