    Camping trip time! Not a huge trip, but enjoyed a bunch of great off and on road time. Best of both worlds all in one place. Arkansas is a gold mine.

    The AT is so handy!

    The camping spot was next to a really nice grass airstrip.

    This is a flood section of the Illionois Bayous. Pretty impressive how many trees are tossed around and piled up. The Bayou blocked my path in three different places thanks to being too high to safely cross when solo. Guess I'll have to go back!

    One of the cool things out here is the old cemeteries in the middle of nowhere.

    Oops. It didn't look like loose sand! She is heavy when loaded up with all the gear, hot dang. Still totally doable.

    And just for good measure, a video of my cat from when I brought him home. Enjoy :)

    I can be at the Hampton in Harrison in about 8 or 9 hours of great riding. I use that as a base and ride the area for a couple days. I do that a couple times a year, very nice riding, love it !!

    I love old cemeteries. Weird I know. I've been to several in AR. Once somewhere south of the Buffalo River or around Yellville, I saw a sign saying I was now in a federal Wilderness Area. A quarter mile later there was a 19th century family cemetery. How can you have a wilderness area that was settle at least a 150 years ago?

    There's somewhat of a chance I will have a new job in AR this year or maybe in a couple. I don't mind that at all.
