Is there not a group of "gypsies" or "travelers" in Texarkana? Call them what you may, but I seldom make a trip over there without seeing some really unusual folks. I'm not talking about the regular folks from Texarkana/Nash/Ashdown, I'm talking about the folks who have their 6 year old kids hair highlighted and their daddy has a White Rain bang mullet.

I've been told for years there is a group of travelers over there, and I believe it more and more every time I go over there.

There is no colony of "Travelers" in the sense of Irish or Scottish Travelers in Texarkana, though they do pass through from time to time.

There is a sizeable community of Romanichel Gypsies between Texarkana and Genoa.

They all live near Genoa in a big compound of double wides,travel trailers and $50K trucks. All they do is scam people with shabby asphalt work and septic pumping, the kids wear nothing but name brand clothes and the women look like 80's rock groupies, the guys all have mullets and lots of jewelery, they also have LOTS of orgies........

Roger on the septic pumping. Large group of them out 71 towards Fouke, in the Genoa area like you said.

My dad refers to them as "shit pumpers." I thought it was kinda funny.

Back when I was younger I used to work at Westgate car wash (wow that's been a LONG time ago....) and the gypsies used to come into to the service center and pay to get their tires and wheels taken off one truck and put onto another. Come to find out, they were going to local car dealerships and test driving the high-end and custom conversion pickup trucks, and driving them to the carwash and a few other shops in town and swapping the tires and wheels whenever they wanted a new set. Those are some shiesty folks, there ain't nobody they won't try to rip off.

Have any of y'all ever been to the gypsy camps?? Odd bunch of folks. They all live in mobile homes and RV's, except for the leader. They live in this huge brick house out there with a big wrought iron and brick fence. And the leader and his wife are referred to as the king and queen. I am not EVEN kidding. When the elderly ones become unproductive they get sent away from the rest of the "tribe", sent to live in the old raggedy trailers and campers and are treated like $&!+. They for the most part are inbred. They have a an elevated number of handicapped children, and they are rarely seen in public. Those who do marry outside of the clan are outcast.

They are a very peculiar group. Would be very interesting if they weren't so shiesty and cooked.

I onc worked with a girl who had a second job at the Sheraton hotel on Stateline. She told us a group of gypsies were staying there once and got kicked out because they were trying to steal furniture from their rooms.

lol I love these stories. Where I was raised in Seattle, I always thought gypsies had a wooden trailer and told peoples fortunes. Seriously. When I moved here in the 90s I saw a weird group of people at the ER and asked someone what type of people that was as I pointed to them, someone said," Gypsies". I was floored. I couldnt stop looking at them as the older gypsy woman in the middle of the large crowd was holding her eyeball in the palm of her hand. I assume she got it knocked out. They were a loud bunch of folk.

90% of gypsies operate the same way and this was told to me by a gypsy, that is they all carry multiple ID's and social security cards, that way it is almost impossible to keep a paper trail on them and they don't have to pay taxes, most doing asphalt jobs with varying degrees of quality and almost always lay it as thin as they think they can get away with, if they even complete the job at all, on their way out of a neiborhood they try the old " I have some leftover from a job" scheme and try to scam people on their way out of town. They alternate aliases and work up north and come back down south when the heat is on them and change their asphalt paving name again. This process is repeated over and over until they have enough money to buy a really nice camper, new truck, and trailer house, you can't buy class though and if you talk to any of the cocky bastards for over 2 minutes it becomes obvious none of them have any.
