This first post will be sort of short as I have just gotten started.  Since I have left a day late so I could go to Ohio Dave’s birthday party on Sunday in Troy, OH – I decided to do some interstate to get myself caught up a bit.  I headed first to Lexington, TN for a visit with brother-in-law Tommy and a cup of coffee.  The down to Jackson for a quick visit with Tom & Craig…and more coffee.  Then to Memphis so I could cross the Mississippi River and finally into Forrest City, AR for the night.

Tomorrow I will head off into the wilderness of Arkansas to look for good back roads.
