The Ozarks don't seem to be too unlike the Appalachians.














I was using both cameras through here as to avoid splattering bugs on the new one....some pics have lots of spots as you've already seen.

Tent or Tepee?

This is basically the route I took. CLICK HERE

I believe that was Sardis Lake? then on to the Talimena Scenic Dr.

Lasted a good year.. Lets face it, that's was hard on a tent..
In the weather day in and day out.. It survive some killer storms ..
Blew out our little B/W TV .. Our first week..

We couldn't afford a tepee... Back then...

Thank goodness we could rent a 14' trailer that we could live in during in the winter... with 3 kittens....


After I said that I looked at it again.. YES on the lake over by Talimena Scenic Dr...

Been over there a few times as well...

your neck of the woods is so far away from me that it seems like a foreign country, thanks for letting us "ride" along with you through all of your beautiful countryside.....also just love all of the small town and old structure photos. Keep up the good work and if you ever get out my way (Montana) make sure you stop by and say hello........
P.S.; I am only up to page 31 of the thread so far, but keep reading on every time I get a chance!

Those dirt roads led me to this.....














.....and this.






I rode across the old dam to what was probably once the city of Mena's water supply.












Then I noticed that I was not alone!

Monday's day trip was only planned to go as far as Ozark, AR so I goofed around in Mena for a little while before gassing up for the remaining ride North.

As I was coming out of the station a lady asked me if I'd be able to help push. I asked "What have you got in mind?"


She pointed across the to the parking lot next door.





I politely declined and tried to explain that she would need more than just a push but she took offense. (not the lady that was stuck, a crazier lady trying to help her)




So it's not bad enough that this poor little old lady got her car stuck on a wall there's a crazier good samaritan lady that's determined to help her!!


Of course I thought that it needed some documentation.





p.s. you can really see all the dust inside that old camera when it's in video mode!
