I40 Tennessee (Natches Trace SP, TN)

Journal entry for Saturday 3rd Nov, 2018 (day 37, miles 4382)

Not long after getting underway this morning we came upon a police officer who had closed the road we wanted to take; seems there was a marathon underway and we needed to detour around the town of Wynne to avoid it. This caused us a bit of navigational confusion for a while, but eventually we found our way on to AR64 as required. By midday we were racing along the I40 northern bypass of Memphis surrounded by trucks and Saturday shopping traffic. Not our favourite style of travel.

Rain ! (Little Rock, AR)

Journal entry for Thursday 1st Nov, 2018 (day 35, miles 4081)

Rain again, is that a ryhm? In anycase we spent the day lazing inside our camper out of the rain. Certainly not a day that encouraged sightseeing.

Rain ! (Little Rock, AR)

Journal entry for Wednesday 31st Oct, 2018 (day 34, miles 4081)

Overnight the rain continued with some really heavy bouts and that's how the day continued as well. Thus once underway we made steady progress to the KOA on the Northern side of Little Rock, AR thinking or was it hoping that tomorrow would deliver better weather so that we could visit the President Clinton Library.

Tyler Bend (Buffalo River NP, AR)

Journal entry for Tuesday 30th Oct, 2018 (day 33, miles 3979)

After running down the KOA checklist for departing campers we took a few "last" photos of Springfield KOA and then hit the road south. For those that have not been to this part of the world, south of Springfield there are a series of popular lakes and the town of Branson. Branson is like a small Las Vegas with a varierty of entertainment and shows and to ensure that visitors get to know the choices available to them the highway is lined with large billboards advertising the various artists that are performing in the town. However, we have been to Branson on previous visits so this time we just continued on through the town.

A visit with GXV (Springfield, MO)

Journal entry for Monday 29th Oct, 2018 (day 32, miles 3860)

As you can see this morning we were still obsessed by the lake and the birds. Why ? We could not work out an answer to that question.
