I'm back! 875 miles since 8am Monday, fun trip indeed! I here something about breakfast tomorrow morning, I may have to show for that. Guess I don't have an excuse if people are coming from 100+ miles away

Congrats!

Excellent! Many congratulations. As others have written, parenthood is great...most of the time. The good times definitely make up for the challenges though and somehow our kids survive our ineptitude.

Enjoy!

Guess who found his kick starter out on the Blue Loop today? So happy. It was like finding a $100 bill in your jeans.

Congrats Vlad! Soon you'll be trading in that Vanagon for a minivan!

TART was good. I rode 412 over to Harrison Monday morning and picked it up there. Took it to Conway Monday night and to Arkadoo Tuesday to hang out with some friends. From there I headed over to DeQueen Wednesday on a nice little route I planned and then came up over the Talimena Hwy today and then rode a few more backroads in to Ft Smith. Took 59/220/265 back into Faytown. I managed to run off the road once, find the only nail in the middle of nowhere, and run over a snake. But yeah, it was a really good ride.




I'm pretty sure this thing wanted to eat me. You can't see his partner, but he wanted to eat me too.



One of the many cool old bridges. This one was 15 or so miles SW of Arkadelphia.



One of the roads along the route that goes through a hunting club. "NO TRESPASSING VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSECUTED" Yeah ok, maybe you should block it off with more than a gate and a fun looking berm



I was somewhere around Conway when the nail began to take hold...





Ran in to this guy in Harrison, he's not a member but he should be. He's touring the U.S. from British Columbia. Nice guy, funny accent. (I don't usually envy people with KLR's but I'm extremely envious of this guy!)
