Wow, first day of Spring and it was 85 degrees in northern Arkansas. I managed to get in 303 miles for the day.
All the roads on the route in the previous post are good. No winter maintenance stuff to get in the way of having a good time!
Did not see a single deer, although I did have a near miss with a kamikaze squirrel up on highway 21.
Saw several vehicles with boats loaded on the roof. I guess with Spring Break in full swing they are taking advantage of the nice weather on some of our rivers. Because of that kind of stuff, I wanted to stay off the roads that are more heavily traveled.
On the way back from Harrison, I had full intention of taking the lower section of highway 123. But when I saw all the gravel mentioned by
I found myself taking a left turn on highway 16 rather than a right on 123.
Really enjoyed the day. Blue sky, very little wind, nice temps and very little traffic.
Guess we will just have to wait on a report regarding the lower section of highway 123.
