Ozarks of Arkansas
Enjoying the food, music, and culture of Yesteryear


By Barbara Oliver
Ozarks of Arkansas
It was in the early 1990s that I came across a magazine article telling about a little town called Mountain View, nestled in the hills of Stone County, Ark. It related how life there was as if in a time capsule, not influenced by computers or traffic.



I clipped the article and filed it away. Not too long ago when I happened across the article, my interest was rekindled and we took that trip back to a mountain culture that is still pure and traditional…

Mark...My Words









By Mark Nemeth



Hi, all:

I hope you all had a merry Christmas and are looking forward to a New Year of RVing! Remember to keep those questions coming!


-------------------------------------------------------------



Hi, Mark,

I have a pop-up camper with electric brakes. Recently, it felt like my camper brakes weren’t working right. I got home and tested the emergency brakes plug at the front of the camper. When I pulled the plug, I was able to pull the camper with the wheels turning just fine. I took it to a dealer to get it checked and fixed. They performed a diagnostic and told me the brakes were pulling 6 amps. That was all they did. I got a trailer emulator plug and checked that everything was coming from my car correctly, but I still don’t think the brakes are working. What else can I do to make sure they work properly?

RVing with your pet









Cats: To Take Camping or Not to Take
By Julee Meltzer


I have had a lot of questions over the years about whether or not to let a cat out? Whether or not to take a cat camping? How to take a cat in an RV? What if my cat gets out? Should a cat even go camping?

You get the picture; people are very unsure about taking their cats with them while traveling and camping.

Obviously the camping vs. a pet sitter at home question is a contentious one.

I can really answer this with a few words:



1) It depends upon the cat

2) Use common sense




But, my job is to write an article, so I will elaborate.....

DARN THAT DOWNHILL SLOPE!



My husband and I were touring Wisconsin, and I was driving our 36’ motorhome with tow to Milwaukee along the shore of Lake Michigan. We decided to stop for lunch at Port Washington for some clam chowder and found a nice long empty place on a slight downhill block on the main drag to park where we turned the wheels in toward the curb to be safe…
