Shreveport KOA featured
From our recent visit to Shreveport, we stayed at the Shreveport/Bossier City KOA in one of their large chalets (a mobile home). It was decorated attractively, came with a kitchen with two skylights, three bedrooms, perfect for a family or group gathering.
It was a short trip, but we did have a chance to feast on the international buffet at Sam's Town casino. For the freshest servings, be sure to get there early (before 11 if going for lunch).
Our next features will highlight more of our London travels. It has taken us longer to compile the features, as we went to so many places and also took lots of photographs.

Reminiscing about our Alaska travels
Have been watching the show Taste of America with Mark DeCarlo. Yes, I admit I watch the Travel Channel.
The episode on Alaska reminds me of our rustic Alaska Adventures a few
years ago where we drove to Alaska via RV along the Alaskan Highway
(everyone should do this at least once in their life to see the state up
close in all of its wonders and talk to the locals).
We took a flying tour from Talkeetna for views of Mt. McKinley and landed on Ruth Glacier. If you are ever near Tok, be sure to stop in at the Gateway Salmon Bake and RV Park to feast on King salmon, halibut, ribs, reindeer sausage, and buffalo burgers. We stayed several days in Tok at the RV park while we waited for our mail to finally catch up with us. The hottest thing in town is watching the sled dog demonstrations.
We were sad to hear that Susan Butcher, 4 time winner of the
1,100 mile Iditarod dog-sled race died recently. We had a chance to see
her as she talked to us at her house while training her dogs as we
cruised with the
Riverboat Discovery tour on the Chena and Tanana Rivers in Fairbanks. She
will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go to her family and friends.
She was quite an Alaskan pioneer.
Watching glaciers crack and fall into the icy waters, viewing killer whales, sea lions, harbor seals, seeing up close (but not too close) as wild bears feast on salmon, touring Denali National Park, there is so much to do and see in the grand and mysterious state. Read more about our Alaska features in our state guides.
