Kenny and Nancy call Oconto, Wisconsin home during the summer boating season where together they enjoy recreational boating on the Oconto River and the Bay of Green Bay. When boating season is over they become snowbirds and head south for the winter in their Monaco Windsor luxury motor coach named OWFISH.
Kenny lived and traveled in OWFISH with his late wife Barbara from 2002 until she had a disabling stroke in 2011 and passed away the following year. From then the OWFISH set, except for a short trip in 2013, until Kenny started traveling again with his new wife Nancy in 2014.

The fuel docks were closed and hoses tied in their spots
When over the radio on channel 16 there arose such a clatter
A voice clearly heard over static and blow
Away to the window I flew like a flash
He called his position and there could be no denial
The dog barked a warning and I arose from my chair
Out on the grass as wind whipped all around us
We saw them come in from the threatening sea
The tugs were all tied the crisis was past
He was a jolly old soul all dressed in red
His pipe smoke circled his head like a fog,
His cheeks were rosy and jiggled like jelly
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old fool
With a wink of his eye and a twist of his toes,
I heard him exclaim as he roared out of sight

We came to Presidio this year to meet up with our friends Frank & Jill Welti from Sheboygan, WI. But due to delays in their travels, they won't make it down here until the first of the year. Right now they are stuck in Denton, TX with transmission problems on their motorhome. Hopefully we will be able to get them to change their winter destination to Palacios too.
After spending 4 winters here in Presidio, we have run out of things to do. In Palacios I will be able to go saltwater fishing and Barb will be able to get together with other women sewing quilts and making other crafts.

In case you can't see it I turned the picture on it's side to give a different profile.

We got on the road around 8:30 AM this morning leaving Clarksville, AR heading to Oklahoma City, OK arriving here around 2:00 PM. Everything went well. We are staying at the Rockwell RV Park on the west side of Oklahoma City. The park has an indoor heated swimming pool and hot tub, free Wi-Fi and cable TV at all the sites. We stopped in Checotah, OK for fuel taking on 66 gallons of diesel at $3.219 a gallon. Total price - $211.84. We have used 135 gallons of diesel since we left Oconto, WI costing us a total of $450.13. We have travelled 122 miles since we filled up in Checotah and still have 713 miles to go to get to Presidio, TX.

Next we rode the rails with the Iron Mountain Railway here in Jackson.

Our route took us through the middle of Saint Louis, MO. We stopped in Barnhart, MO for fuel and bought 66 gallons of diesel for $238 ($3.60 a gallon) after driving 593 miles since our last fill up on May 1st.
After we setup and met the owners of the campground, Barb and I both fell in love with this place. This place is not fancy, but the spaces are large, it's quiet and peaceful. The campground hasn't been around very long and there are lots of work that still needs to be done. They have just received their license to operate a beer bar at the office and Barb & I were their first customers. There is free Wi-Fi available here at the office but it's a weak signal. Someone with my experience can fix that problem though. They would like to make Wi-F available throughout the campground but that may be next to impossible because of all the trees. We may come back next spring and workamp for them for a couple of months. Our next stop will be in Marion, AR just north of West Memphis, AR.
Please note: This is a rustic campground with some RV hookups, not an RV Resort. We stayed here under Passport America.
