Every year the Christian Motorcyclists Association hold a fall color run in Mena, Arkansas. The main goal is to raise money for the Run For The Son which involves various ministries. Their is lots of fellowship with other member throughout the United States.
It is always planned during the fall color season. Groups go out viewing the fall colors.
Since we visited here during Covid restrictions it worked out well with the fabulous open air concept. There is seating inside and out.
The huge parking area has the plenty of room for Rv’s and local patrons.
It is an open air establishment with seating inside and out. Their home brews on tap can be purchased. Food can be ordered form an outside food hut with many choices. Staff was very friendly. This Host site is very popular with the locals
This winery is nestled in the woods. A cabin sits among the trees with a view of the grape vine fields. You can walk the trails through the grapevines or sit on the front porch and have great conversations with other travelers and the owner.
Various wines are available for purchase.
This Host site only has a few spots for RV’s so, as with all Harvest Host sites, you need to call and reserve your space.
This Harvest Host location offers a great selection of wines and concentrates, jellies, etc. They specialize in Elderberry. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a great way to take a break from driving and tour their store and all the products available.
One added benefit, if you like their wines, jellies, etc, they will ship them to your home.
I love the Elderberry concentrate which I add to seven up or orange juice. A small amount is quite sufficient. I order it regularly.
We boondocked in their spacious parking lot which can accomodate several RV’s.
We visited the Boardwalk. Being off season, it was really quiet. Some of the places were closed for the season but still there were many shops and restaurants open to accommodate visitors.
We ate at Pier 14. Excellent food, great staff and also pet friendly. An intense rain storm hit while we were there so we spent a couple hours there to stay dry. Kyle, our waiter, was very pleasant and kept us happy with beverages and dessert while we were waiting for the storm to pass.
Even during off season, Pier 14 was bustling with patrons. When in Myrtle Beach, visit Pier 14.
We decided to trade in our 2017 Thor Ace for a Toy Hauler. We decided to stay at Pirateland RV Park since it was close to Camping World, where we purchased our new RV.
The campground is well kept, all sites are full service. There is a section for RV’s by the ocean, a section apart from the ocean where campers can be right by small lakes. Some spaces have sheltered picnic tables.
There are cabins available also.
Walkway to the beach
Pirate theme mini golf course.
This is a lovely park with pools, mini golf and beach access. We really enjoyed it. With loads of things to do outside the gates of Pirateland, it is a great place to go back to for a rest after a long day of shopping, sightseeing, beach walking, etc.
Seemed the time for an upgrade. We found a great deal on a toy hauler camper. Prior to our trip to Myrtle Beach, we did phone negotiations. Before we even left for our trip to South Carolina we had purchased a 2018 Thor toy hauler.
With all our travels it made sense to buy it, especially since we got such a fabulous deal on it. With the toy hauler we can take our Can Am motorcycle and also tow our Jeep so wherever we go and no matter what the weather, we have transportation.
Here is the garage with the extended deck, another awesome feature.
A loft bedroom for guests
Dining area with a residential refrigerator
Front cab with snack table
A giant thanks to our salesman, Kieth Johnson and our genius with the numbers, Sofiane Yahiaoui for making this deal happen!!
We recommend Camping World in Myrtle Beach if you are looking for that home away from home.
