Day 6 Continued Heading north toward Ozark. Remember that poultry was the big ag product in Arkansas? Tyson plant in Waldron. Never saw a set-up like this involving Walgreens. Car dealer to school district. Interesting repurposing of a building. Rugged bike selling a rugged truck? They promote their downtown as being remarkable. This monk was working on their truck at a local small farm. Unusual perhaps? Dale Bumpers Research Center They do some research here for small farms. Just up the road near Booneville is a state sanatorium site. It was built in the early 1900s as a tuberculosis sanatorium complex. It got out of the TB business in 1973. At one time the population of this largely self-contained complex was larger than nearby Booneville. This place treated over 70,000 patients. Nearby Booneville had a meat plant explosion a while back. The plant used to be on the right side of this picture. The parking lot is still there. I couldn't find the connection between Garth Brooks and Caulksville. Old gas station on one corner. Replacement on the other. I like the old one better. Routine inspection of the bike at the Ozark gas stop. The rear tire was new when I started. Looks like all those rocks were hard on it. At first glance I thought "cracked rim" - especially after all those rocks. It wasn't, just some goop. Bent rear bracket on my bash plate would scrape against the side stand when I wanted to put it up or down. It is quite a project to bend that bracket back into pace so it must have been a hard hit. With all the rocks, best to have a sturdy bash plate on this path. Still heading north . . .
