We spent a week in Hot Springs, Arkansas, with its tradition of “taking the baths”. The hot water that bubbles forth from deep in the earth has long been regarded for its healing properties.
The Buckstaff Baths is the only one of these historic buildings currently operating as a bathhouse.
The Visitor Center has three restored floors that showcase the baths, salons, therapy and dressing rooms, a gymnasium and Assembly Room (where guests of both sexes could socialize) — along with period artifacts and exhibits. We spent an afternoon in the Visitor Center and took in the Buckstaff Baths on another day. Tip: Buckstaff Baths is less busy in the mornings, so arrive early for a more relaxing experience.
The remaining buildings on Bathhouse Row have been stabilized and exterior and interior renovations are in progress. The plan is to lease them to private businesses, with National Park Service oversight. More about our Hot Springs stay.
NEW Video – Watch it for free!:
When we first started thinking about the Your RV Lifestyle site, we realized that we were pretty “green” in the ways of the web. Between the two of us, we’d spent over 60 years in corporate America. Years of experience in sales, billing, customer service, product management and process engineering. But none of these jobs had us building websites.
Sure, we had been using the internet for years. But browsing pages and being “behind the curtain” creating those pages are two different things. We are so glad we came across Site Build It! The answer if you want to create or grow your own business, or give a long-lasting gift. Now you can SEE how it works for you, with this neat video – watch it free NOW!
The Good…the Sad:
We have been winding our way eastward to visit family in Florida, making several stops along the way. And as we often do, we have kept our eyes open for free and fun things to do.
And the Funny…
Another melancholy part of the past month was that we brought Hike back home to the Shiloh RV Travel Resort in Monroe, Louisiana. We miss his company, but are glad for all the good times we shared with him these past few months.
Anne and crew were happy to welcome Hike home, and he has already been a big help getting ready for the holidays. After all…he’s an energetic sort and you can always count on him to put on a happy face.
There is always fun (and funny) stuff going on when it comes to Hike.
We look forward to Hike’s return, after he takes care of his responsibilities over the holidays and with the Escapees CARE center. (RV Scrapbook is compiling an e-cookbook, with proceeds to benefit the CARE center.) Join the fun and caring community of RVers and RV-wannabes over at RV Scrapbook.
There is a lot to learn about public & private campgrounds and RV Parks, and the more you know, the better your camping experiences will be. How do you find RV campgrounds, parks and resorts? Should you make reservations before leaving on a trip? How do you register when you arrive at the campground? What kind of site should you request? Do you need a partial hook up or a full hook up? How do you set the RV up at the campground? What does campground etiquette mean? How do you determine the right camping club or camping network for you? This DVD, by Mark Polk of RV Education 101, answers all of these questions and much more. Check out all the great RVing DVDs and Box Sets.
Rallies part of the Plan
As we make our travel plans for the winter, we are already looking forward to attending the FMCA rally in March 2007. Family Motor Coach Association is a great club for motorhome owners, and we always find their rallies to be reasonably priced, educational and great fun. We can’t imagine not belonging to FMCA. The benefits are excellent and the magazine is always full of RV-related news, travel info and lots of helpful tips.
Holidays are right around the corner. Lots of ideas for gifts… or for you and your RV.
Season’s Greetings from Your RV Lifestyle!
We wish everyone health and happiness … however, and wherever, you spend your holidays.
